Philadelphia 76ers Betting
Opposite to their impeccable 4-0 record at home, the Philadelphia 76ers have been miserable away from Wells Fargo Arena, dropping three of their seven road games so far this season. In Wednesday’s loss to the Magic, Philadelphia encountered the same problem that plagued them in their previous losses: poor three-point (8-for-30). The Sixers are only shooting 32 percent from beyond the arc – which is good for 22nd in the league.
Players to Watch: Joel Embiid (23.0 PPG, 12.4 RPG, 3.1 APG), Tobias Harris (16.5 PPG, 8.4 RPG, 3.5 APG), Al Horford (15.7 PPG, 7.5 RPG, 3.8 APG)
Oklahoma City Thunder Betting
After giving the Milwaukee Bucks a good fight, 119-121, on November 10, the Oklahoma City Thunder suffered their biggest loss of the season against the Indiana Pacers, 111-85. Cold field-goal shooting and the inability to manufacture points in the paint held OKC to a season-low 85 points.
Players to Watch: Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (20.1 PPG, 5.8 RPG, 3.1 APG), Danilo Gallinari (18.2 PPG, 4.9 RPG, 1.5 APG), Chris Paul (15.3 PPG, 3.7 RPG, 5.5 APG)

Philadelphia 76ers vs Oklahoma City Thunder Betting Picks
There’s a couple of bad news for the Sixers heading into Friday’s road game. First, the Thunder are 2-1 in their last three head-to-head meetings with an average winning margin of four points. Second, Joel Embiid could sit out because of a nagging knee problem.
Moneyline: The Sixers might be struggling on the road, but they are a terrific 7-0 as NBA straight-up betting favorites.
ATS: A 1-4 ATS record against the Thunder in the last five games won’t prevent the Sixers from covering a 3-point spread even without Embiid.
TOTALs: This game will go UNDER the total, which opened at 216 points. The Thunder just tied their season-low in their last game, while the Sixers have been scoring between 95 to 110 points in their last few assignments.
Score Prediction: 103-95 Sixers
