The 76ers bounce into this Monday night matchup flashing a 24-22 record that ranks the franchise 3rd in the Atlantic Division. Additionally, Philly finds themselves pegged at the No. 8 spot in the Western Conference. Were the season to end today, the 76ers would be ecstatic having made the playoffs by a hair’s length. However, since there’s still a good chunk of the season left, Philly needs a strong finish to year to crack the postseason cut. That said, the 76ers are 2-2 in their last 4. So it looks like they’re not exactly getting the results their aiming for. The sports parlay odds aren’t out yet for this matchup but current estimates have the Bucks pegged as the favorites. All in all, that favoritism isn’t that surprising. Should bettors take the underdog in this Philadelphia 76ers vs. Milwaukee Bucks matchup?
Considering which way the odds are tilted, some small action on the 76ers wouldn’t be a terrible idea. On the other hand, the Bucks are on a bit of a win streak so they could come out blazing this evening. If you’re looking to take the spread, you’re likely going to want to favor Philadelphia this evening. The reason being the 76ers 26-19-1 record against the spread this season.
The Bucks charge into this Eastern Conference contest sporting a 26-22 record that ranks them 2d in the Central Division. Furthermore, Milwaukee currently ranks 6th overall in the East. Milwaukee has made the playoffs once out of the last three seasons. Needless to say the Bucks are thrilled about their current ranking. However, the Bucks have hit a bit of a rough stretch recently, going 7-7 this month. Notwithstanding that January-slump, Milwaukee enters this evening’s contest riding a 3-game win streak. But putting that win streak aside, how well do the Bucks matchup against the 76ers?
Overall, the Bucks will likely be at an offensive disadvantage this evening. At the present moment, Philadelphia is averaging 108.2 points per game while the Bucks are putting up 105.1. Nonetheless, the Bucks have a slightly better defense as they’re allotting 105.6 to Philly’s 106.7. No doubt the Bucks will need a big game from Giannis Antetokounmpo this evening. The Greek Freak is currently putting up 28.4 points, 10.1 rebounds, and 4.7 assists. Unsurprisingly, Antetokounmpo leads the team in all three categories.
