501 Philadelphia 76ers at 502 Charlotte Hornets, 1PM ET


According to oddsmakers at YouWager, the Sixers are a 2.5-point favorite on the spread line. The total sits at 218.5 points.

Bet NBA Action For Sunday, April 1, 2018


Philadelphia opened as a 2-point favorite, while the over-under is still at 218.5. The spread is at -2.5 everywhere, while the total can be bet at either 218 or 218.5 if you shop around.


As of Sunday morning, 58 percent of public bets have been placed on the visiting 76ers. Online wager info also shows that 54 percent of bets are coming in on the over.


Philadephia shooting guard Justin Anderson (ankle) is questionable to play. Center Joel Embiid (face) is out until approximately late April. Shooting guard Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot (knee) is out indefinitely. For Charlotte, shooting guard Jeremy Lamb (foot) is probable. Center Cody Zeller (knee) is out indefinitely. Point guard Michael Carter-Williams (shoulder) is out for the season.


The 76ers won their ninth game in a row two days ago with a 101-91 triumph at the Hawks, but will continue to play without Embiid for the foreseeable future. Philadelphia has won all three meetings this season and all have come since March 2, but all those games also were with Embiid in the lineup. Charlotte is on a back-to-back after falling 107-93 yesterday afternoon at the Wizards. Despite the back-to-back, I don't trust the Sixers in this spot without their star center Take the 2.5 with the Hornets.
