Atlanta Hawks vs Philadelphia 76ers Betting Picks
Despite coming off a lopsided loss, NBA best bets still see the 76ers as favorites over the Hawks. Simmons is hurt and may not play, meaning Embiid and Harris will need to step up. Young remains a thorn on their side, meaning coach Brown will need to put the cuffs on him. Philadelphia cannot afford to drop this one if they intend to move up the top four. A loss will also narrow the gap between them and the Indiana Pacers, something they want to avoid.
