LINE MOVEMENT

While the over/under has not moved off the original number of 215, the 76ers have gone from a 5-point home favorite down to a 4-point fave at most online sportsbooks.

PUBLIC BETTING

As of this writing, 82% of betting tickets wagered at online sportsbooks are on the 76ers to cover the spread, while 79% of the betting tickets are on the over.

KEY INJURY TO WATCH

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (hamstring) and Cody Zeller (knee) are both questionable for the Hornets. Markelle Fultz (shoulder) remains out for the Sixers.

BETTING STRATEGY

I actually like the side and total in this matchup. Let's start with the total. In the last 11 meetings between these two teams in Philadelphia, the under is 8-3. In the last five meetings between these two teams overall, the under is 4-1. The under has also cashed in four straight 76ers games when they're playing on zero rest, and is 8-1 in their last nine games when facing a team with a losing record.

I also like Charlotte to cover the spread as a road dog. In Philadelphia's last five games when its starting five combined for more than 160 minutes the previous night, the 76ers are 0-4-1 against the spread. Meanwhile, the Hornets have covered four of their last five spreads.
