Friday nights are traditionally jam packed with action in the NBA and we have 11 games coming up with one of them being the Sixers playing at Toronto against the Raptors. This game is where our free NBA betting pick for today is coming from, and we have some good reasons to believe it will come out correct. The 76ers have started the season quite bad thus far with just one win from their first four games. Meanwhile, the Raps have a positive record having posted 3 wins and 2 defeats thus far.

The Previous Game Was Close After The First Quarter
An interesting fact about this game is that it’s the second of the home-and-home stand between these two teams as they played against each other just the other day in Toronto. The Raptors won that game 119-109. The main difference come from the first quarter as the Raps won it by 35-27, took the lead early on and never looked back. That’s the one positive that Doc River was able to take away from the defeat as he basically said that it was all even afterwards, and his 76ers could have actually won the game if it wasn’t for the bad start.
“When you look at the box, and all the quarters after that are basically even. It’s the first quarter that we got off to such a slow start and their key guys got going. We gifted guys shots early. Their shots, mixed coverages.”Doc Rivers after the 119-109 loss of the Sixers vs the Raps on October 27, 2022

Looking For The Sixers To Make Adjustments
We are going to cut right down to the chase and give it to you straight. Our free NBA bet for this Friday night is on the Sixers to beat the Raptors at the odds of 1.90 on the Money Line. Coach Rivers is right about the fact that things were pretty much even after the first quarter and the main reason for the defeat was his team’s slow start. He will certainly make sure that his team starts off right this time and enters the floor well prepared to handle their business right from the tip off. Rivers is one of the best coaches in the NBA, and that’s why we believe he will make the necessary adjustments to put his 76ers in position to win this game. It’s a quick rematch between those two teams, so it represents a really good opportunity for a good coach to make the necessary changes and get a win.
Philly Needs To Start Winning Quick
As mentioned, the Sixers have started off the season slowly having already lost four out of five games. They have to get their act together quickly. Otherwise, Doc Rivers could be on the ropes. After all, Philly were tipped as one of the favorites to win the title, so they can’t allow themselves to struggle, especially so early on.
The Quality Is There
When it comes to this NBA free bet and this Sixers at Raps prediction for October 28, 2022, it has to be noted that the Sixers have the necessary quality in their squad to beat anyone. You are talking about two of the top 20 players in the NBA – Embiid and Harden. Yeah, the Beard might have slowed down a bit, but Embiid is definitely top 5 or top 10 in the league right. The big man can shoot, dribble, defend, take it down and post up people. He will get his 30 points tonight.
And Harden himself has actually looked quite good thus far. He looks motivated by all the talk saying that he is on the decline. He looks in way better shape, way trimmer (not his beard). He is moving quickly, he is invested in games. Looks motivated to prove he is still among the big dogs in the league. I am looking for Harden to get 30+ points as well.
When you throw in all the other good role players in the Philly squad, they definitely have what it takes to win on any given night. You got Tobias Harris, who can easily get you another 20 points. Tyrece Maxey has been an absolute gem. He is such a young and promising player. He is going to be a start in this league for years to come. Maxey is already a solid contributor. He’s got pace. He can shoot, pass, dribble. He’s got the complete point guard package. PJ Tucker brings in the much-needed toughness, and you can see who sorely the Heat miss him right now.
