Philadelphia 76ers Betting

Looks like there is light at the end of the tunnel for the Philadelphia 76ers as Ben Simmons suddenly showed up in practice. It is still unknown if he will be suiting up against the Detroit Pistons but at least the distraction is lessened. They will expect to build Seth Curry and Tyrese Maxey as the team’s backcourt tandem until they find a good trade for Simmons. Joel Embiid is expected to see limited minutes for Andre Drummond to get used to the system even more. Tobias Harris and Danny Green have been playing in the preseason and they should see action as well.

Detroit Pistons Betting

The Detroit Pistons have a lot of positive vibes in the organization heading into this year after they drafted Cade Cunningham as the 2021 first overall pick. He will be joined by sophomore players Killian Hayes, Saddiq Bey and Isaiah Stewart who are all expected to elevate their games even further. Jerami Grant has been playing like an All-Star and expect him to lead the team in scoring. Kelly Olynyk has been the team’s biggest off-season acquisition and he is expected to add more firepower and veteran leadership to this young core of players. This team also has other exciting rookies to develop like Luka Garza, Jamorko Pickett and Isaiah Livers.
