Philadelphia 76ers vs Los Angeles Lakers 3/23/2022 Betting Odds
Philadelphia 76ers Betting
The Philadelphia 76ers are currently third in the NBA Eastern Conference standings and they are just behind the Miami Heat and defending champions Milwaukee Bucks by at least two games. Joel Embiid has been playing on an MVP level and this has been his healthiest season so far. Along with James Harden, this newly formed duo seemed to compliment each other along with Tobias Harris. Tyrese Maxey has been stepping up as well for the Sixers and they are looking to finish the season strong with the goal of getting the best possible playoff position with their momentum.
Players to watch: Joel Embiid C 58 GP 58 GS 33.4 MIN 29.8 PTS 2.1 OR 9.3 DR 11.3 REB 4.3 AST 1.1 STL 1.4 BLK 3 TO 2.7 PF 1.4 AST/TO 31.37 PER

Los Angeles Lakers Betting
The Los Angeles Lakers are very much stuck at 9th place in the NBA Western Conference and are behind the LA Clippers by four games. This team just hopes that they don’t fall hard to be behind the New Orleans Pelicans who are behind them by just one game. LeBron James has been carrying the team on his back with a score-first mentality already. Russell Westbrook continues to be inconsistent and even at his best, the Lakers are not that good. Anthony Davis is going to be back by next week but until then, other players will have to step up especially the younger athletes.
Players to Watch: LeBron James SF 54 GP 54 GS 37.1 MIN 30 PTS 1.1 OR 7.1 DR 8.2 REB 6.3 AST 1.3 STL 1.1 BLK 3.4 TO 2.2 PF 1.8 AST/TO 26.64 PER
