Philadelphia 76ers Fantasy Spin

Joel Embiid registered a monster 40-point, 15-rebound double-double during a 130-125 win in Milwaukee on Sunday, but he'll be rested on Tuesday as a precaution. The Bucks simply had no answers for Embiid, and he added four 3-pointers, six assists, three steals, one block and just one turnover through his 36 minutes of floor time. The 76ers are currently on a four-game winning streak and are 6-1 when they have all their main guys healthy. The win tonight brought their season record to 45-25, which officially secures them a playoff berth out East. Fantasy owners are looking at a two-game week from their stud center next week, though, as he's expected to play vs. the Celtics (Wednesday) and Hawks (Saturday).

Charlotte Hornets Fantasy Spin

Bismack Biyombo failed to do much through 17 minutes as a starter sans Cody Zeller (knee) on Sunday, finishing with just two points, six boards, one block and two turnovers. Biyombo hasn’t been all that effective over his past two games as a starter with averages of just 6.5 points, 5.0 boards, 1.0 block and 1.0 turnover per contest. He's splitting the five-man minutes with Frank Kaminsky, who finished with 13 points (3-of-10 FGs, 7-of-9 FTs), seven rebounds, one assist and one turnover, but both those guys are too inconsistent to trust in standard settings.

NBA Betting Trends

Philadelphia

The 76ers are 5-2 against the spread in their last seven games after allowing 100 points or more in their previous contest.

Charlotte

The Hornets have failed to cover the spread in six of their last seven games overall and are 1-4 against the number in their last five games versus Eastern Conference foes.

Prediction

This is a letdown spot for the 76ers, who are just 1-5 against the spread in their last six games after scoring more than 125 points in their previous contest and are 1-5 against the number in their last six games versus an opponent with a losing record. The Hornets, meanwhile, have covered in six of their last eight home games coming off a road trip of seven or more days. They’re also 4-1-1 ATS in their last six games following a loss of more than 10 points.

Tuesday NBA Prediction: Charlotte Hornets +1
