Philadelphia 76ers Betting
The Philadelphia 76ers right now is fifth in the NBA Eastern Conference standings and they are slowly climbing up again through their four-game winning streak. On the road, this team has not been doing good as they lost 19 of their 28 games. Still, Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons are entertaining to watch but they need more players to get involved in the system. Al Horford has been underwhelming and Ben Simmons is still questionable for this game. Tobias Harris is the silent worker for this team and he has been a good x-factor during their victories. Expect also Richardson to deliver good production when he is on the floor.
