Philadelphia 76ers 2 @ Toronto Raptors 2
Prediction Game Total Under 211.5
Philadelphia + 6.5
The Raptors had a big win to square up the series in Game 4 and The Claw Kawhi Leonard was once again massive in setting up the win for the Raptors. He is having a big series and if he has a quiet night it is difficult to see where the Toronto Points will come from as their bench has not been performing throughout this series.
Expect this game to be tight defensively and the 76ers to have a plan to try and stop Kawhi.
The fitness of Joel Embiid will also play a part in the result, but he has been playing so it can’t be all too bad.
The Under for the Game Total is worth considering and the Sixers to hang around right until the end in a low scoring contest.
Kyle Lowry + 13.5 Points
Lowry is a decent three-point shooter and Leonard may need a bailout option on numerous occasions if he gets the attention he deserves from the Sixers. He has already covered this number on numerous occasions in this series and it looks likely to happen again.
Joel Embiid + 3.5 Assists
Embiid has found it tough against Marc Gasol in this series and it will once again be difficult for him to get to the bucket if the Spaniard is playing such hard defense. He will more than likely be double teamed and have to look for open teammates on numerous occasions.
Should get some passes in this game.
Portland Trail Blazers 2 @ Denver Nuggets 2
Prediction – Game Total Over 213.5
Denver – 4.5
The Trail Blazers have an injury problem with their big man Enes Kanter and it could be difficult for anybody to stop Nikola Jokic. Jokic is not the best defender and will not be as accountable on the defensive end which could preserve a bit of energy.
The Nuggets are very good at home and have done well to hold Damian Lillard to such poor shooting form.
The Nuggets should win this game at home and both sides have a Head to Head Game Total average of above the number during their season matchups.
Al-Farouq Aminu + 9.5 Points
Aminu has been pretty good in this series and had good numbers against the Nuggets during the regular season. With Kanter questionable, he should get plenty of chances to cover the number.
