Philly wins back-to-back
The 76ers are coming off back-to-back wins over the Nets and Timberwolves this past weekend. Philadelphia is 49-27 on the season, 19-18 on the road, 36-40 against the spread and 38-38 with the over/under total. Philly is third in the East right now and pretty well locked into the position. They are 4.5 games behind Toronto, but 4.5 games over Boston and Indiana.
Philadelphia has one of the top offenses, averaging 115.2 points per game while shooting 47.1 percent from the floor. Defensively, the 76ers are giving up 112.1 points per game while opponents shoot 45.3 percent form the field. Philly is resting Joel Embiid for today’s game due to a knee injury. Embiid is averaging 27.5 points and 13.7 rebounds per contest to lead the team. Tobias Harris is adding 18.7 points and 8.0 rebounds per contest.
Mavericks stun OKC
Dallas went on the road and defeated Oklahoma City last night, 106-103, without Luka Doncic in the lineup. The Mavericks are 30-46 overall, 22-15 at home, 41-32-3 against the spread and 42-33-1 with the under.
The Mavs are putting up just 108.4 points per game on the season while shooting 44.7 percent from the field. Defensively, Dallas is giving up 110 points per game while opponents shoot 46 percent against them. Doncic could sit out tonight’s game as well due to a thigh injury. Doncic averages 21.1 points, 7.6 rebounds and 5.9 assists per game to lead the team. Trey Burke had 25 points and eight assists in last night’s win in place of him.
NBA Betting Trends
The 76ers are 1-5 against the spread in their last six Southwest opponents and 2-5 ATS in their last seven against a losing team.
The Mavericks are 0-3-1 ATS in their last four home games and 0-5 ATS in their last five after a win.
Dallas is short-handed and coming off a game last night. While the 76ers are without Embiid, they still have plenty of scoring to make up for it and Dallas doesn’t have a consistent scoring presence in the paint to really make up for the loss of Embiid. I think Philadelphia will be just fine running past a tired Dallas team that has no need to win.
NBA Prediction: Philadelphia 76ers -7.5
