76ers vs. Heat Pick
According to oddsmakers at YouWager, the spread line is at a pick'em for the 76ers and Heat. The total is set at 206.5 points.
The line and the total are both at the spots where they opened. At some books, the Sixers are a 1-point fave while the total can also be found at 206.
As of Tuesday afternoon, 61 percent of public bets have been placed on Philadelphia. Online wager info also shows that 70 percent of bets are coming in on the over.
INJURY TO WATCH
Philadelphia point guard Justin Anderson is out until early March with a sprained ankle. For the Heat, center Kelly Olynyk has been out with a shoulder injury and is questionable tonight.
Philadelphia is coming off a 109-94 loss at the Wizards, but have overall been playing good basketball as of late. I expect the Sixers to get back on track here against a Heat team that has lost eight of their last 10 contests. Look for a huge night once again out of Joel Embiid. The Sixers have won both meetings straight up this season and covered the spread once.
