LINE MOVEMENT

Washington opened at the 1.5-point spread it is at now, while the over-under dropped slightly from 214. The spread is at 2 at some sports books, while the total can be found at 214 other places.

PUBLIC BETTING

As of Sunday afternoon, 59 percent of public bets have sided with the Wizards. Online wager info also shows that 73 percent of public bets are coming in on the over.

INJURY TO WATCH

Sixers shooting guard Justin Anderson has a high ankle sprain and is expected to be out until early March. For the Wizards, backup center Jason Smith has missed the last three games with an illness and is questionable for tonight.

BETTING STRATEGY

Philadelphia is 6-2 ATS in the last eight meetings and come in on a hot streak, having won seven games in a row and covering the spread in five of them. Washington had also been playing solid basketball with three road wins in a row, but had that streak come to a close with a 122-105 home loss to the Hornets two days ago. The biggest concern for 76ers bettors is the availability of center Joel Embiid on a back-to-back, but he has been playing in those situations more often than not lately so it appears as if he is good to go. If he is indeed active, I love Philadelphia as a 2-point dog here. The Wizards have been playing commendable basketball in the absence of point guard John Wall, but this is a matchup where he might be missed even more. Take the hotter of the two teams tonight in the visiting Sixers.
