The Sixers made it two wins in a row with another dominant performance against the Golden State Warriors, 115-104, on Tuesday. Wearing the No.24 jersey in honor of the late Kobe Bryant, Joel Embiid recorded 24 points and 10 rebounds to lead the Sixers’ offensive attack. Ben Simmons finished with 17 points, while Raul Neto had 19 points off the bench.

After a big win over the Wizards, the Atlanta Hawks suffered a major beatdown in their next game as they succumbed to the Toronto Raptors, 130-114. John Collins had a big double-double game with 28 points and 12 boards and Cam Reddish continued his good showing as of late with 18 markers. But the Raptors’ defense hounded All-Star guard Trae Young to just 18 points on 5-for-13 shooting.

Philadelphia 76ers vs Atlanta Hawks Betting Picks
The Sixers are among the NBA future betting favorites this season and they are looking like that again with the return of Joel Embiid from injury. Expect this team to start racking up wins as the season head into its second half.
Moneyline: Bet on the Sixers at -335. This is a no brainer. The Sixers are the better team on paper, having the personnel to dominate a sub .500 team like the Hawks easily.
ATS: Pick the Sixers to cover the 7.5-point spread. Philadelphia barely won, 105-103, in their first meeting with the Hawks this season. I don’t expect the Sixers to let it happen again. With the dynamic duo of Simmons and Embiid back, Philadelphia should win big against the Hawks this time around.
TOTALs: Back the UNDER at 228 points. The Hawks are an electrifying team with Young leading the charge. However, the Sixers’ frontcourt defense is just too much for this team. Philadelphia will make it a physical game for Young and the rest of the Hawks.
Score Prediction: 116 – 103 Sixers
