Bet Tonight's NBA Action

Who the Public Likes: As of Wednesday afternoon, 77 percent of public bets have been placed on the Spurs.

Injury Report: Spurs forward Danny Green is doubtful tonight with groin tightness. Rudy Gay has a heel injury and is out until mid-January. For the 76ers, Joel Embiid is doubtful tonight with a sprained hand. Markelle Fultz has a shoulder injury and is out until mid-January. Justin Anderson has shin splints and will also be out until mid-January.

Who the Trends Like: San Antonio is 5-12 ATS in its last 17 meetings in Philadelphia and 1-4 ATS in its last five meetings overall. The under is 9-2 in the last 11 meetings.

Who We Like: Embiid isn't expected to play, which is normally an auto-fade for the Sixers. But the spread here indicates that oddsmakers don't expect Kawhi Leonard to play either in the second end of a back-to-back. Knowing the Spurs, they might rest a couple other plays as well. This is a spot where Philly must take advantage. Look for another massive game from Dario Saric in Embiid's absence.
