Philadelphia 76ers DFS Spin

Joel Embiid (back tightness) is listed as questionable for Monday's meeting with the Utah Jazz. What is this, Embiid ducking a matchup with Rudy Gobert? We're joking. But this is the same "injury" that has kept the Sixers center out of back-to-backs, but Philly isn't playing on Sunday or Tuesday, so it's safe to assume he'll suit up in what should be a good battle between one of the league's best two-way bigs and a former DPOY

Rudy Gobert bullied the Bucks in a 129-115 win on Friday, scoring 27 points (9-of-12 FGs, 9-of-13 FTs) with 12 rebounds and four blocks in 35 minutes. What a run he's having. Gobert has at least three blocks in five of his last six games, and he's scoring 20.3 points per game over his last three. It feels like every Jazz player is firing on all cylinders these days as they have won six straight and 17 of their last 18 games. If you're punting free throws, you should be ecstatic with Gobert's production as he's a top-15 player with that category thrown out.

76ers vs. Jazz Betting Prediction

The 76ers are a perfect 6-0 against the spread in their last six games versus the Jazz and have covered in four of their last five trips to Utah. They’re also 4-1 against the number in their last five games when facing an opponent with a winning percentage above .600 and are 5-2 at the betting window in their last seven games when facing an opponent with a winning record.
