Toronto Raptors 3 @ Philadelphia 76ers 2
Prediction – Game Total Under 213.5
Toronto – 2.5
The Raptors should win Game 6 as they won game 5 at home by 36 Points and the Sixers are struggling right now.
The Sixers do have the home crowd but a loss that big is always questionable and they really have no answer for Kawhi Leonard on the defensive end.
Unless Joel Embiid gets going it could be curtains for Brett Brown and the 76ers. Marc Gasol has beaten him 4 out of 5 times and actually had a good offensive game in Game 5 which is a bonus for the Raptors.
The Raptors should wrap it up in a low scoring contest.
Kawhi Leonard + 3.5 Assists
If the Sixers are any chance they will need to stop Kawhi who is averaging well over 30 points per game in the series. Expect them to throw everything at him and he will need to use his teammates on a regular occurrence. Should cover the number here.
Tobias Harris + 15.5 Points
This Points total has dropped a little as the series has matured, but Harris can certainly score points when he needs to. With Embiid being well shut down by Gasol he should get many chances to score points. Should go close to 20 in this game.
Denver Nuggets 3 @ Portland Trail Blazers 2
Prediction – Game Total + 216.5 Points
Denver + 3.5
The Blazers were very disappointing in Game 5 and do have the home court advantage in this one. The Nuggets are very good defensively and have done well to restrict Damian Lillard to have a lesser impact in this series.
The Game Totals seem to go over in Portland and both sides should score over 100 here.
The Nuggets will make it tough for the Blazers and should probably wrap up the series here as they are playing the better basketball on both ends.
Gary Harris + 13.5 Points
Harris has been playing a lot of minutes and getting up a decent amount of shots in this series. He will once again go close to covering this number especially if he gets some buckets early.
Paul Millsap + 7.5 Rebounds
With Enes Kanter from the Blazers carrying a niggling injury it has opened up more rebounding chances and Paul Millsap has been a vacuum cleaner on the boards. He should get many rebounding opportunities in this game because of the tight defense and missed shots. Look at him covering the number in this contest.
