After witnessing Nikola Jokic buried a game-winning shot in a 97-100 loss to the Denver Nuggets last week, Joel Embiid made sure no late-game dramatic would ever break his teammates’ hearts again. The All-NBA center racked up 27 points and 17 rebounds, and then smacked in a go-ahead basket with 13.2 seconds left in the game to lead the Sixers to a tough 98-97 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Tuesday. The win has preserved Philadelphia’s unblemished record at Wells Fargo Arena, which now stands at 4-0.
Players to Watch: Joel Embiid (22.3 PPG, 11.8 RPG, 3.0 APG), Tobias Harris (18.3 PPG, 8.6 RPG, 3.2 APG), Al Horford (15.9 PPG, 7.4 RPG, 4.0 APG)
Orlando Magic Betting
Nobody expected the Orlando Magic to play this bad through their first 10 games, not after clinching the seventh seed in the East playoffs last season. However, the lack of offensive firepower (ranked 30th at 99.3 PPG) has put this team in this tough predicament. Head coach Steve Clifford has built a reputation for being a great defensive-oriented coach, but the biggest criticism on him even during his time in Charlotte is his limited and predictable set of plays on the offensive end of the floor.
Players to Watch: Nikola Vucevic (17.1 PPG, 11.3 RPG, 3.2 APG), Evan Fournier (15.5 PPG, 3.4 RPG, 3.1 APG), Aaron Gordon (13.6 PPG, 5.6 RPG, 2.7 APG)

Fatigue could play a factor for Philadelphia, who just survived a physical matchup with the Cavaliers. This is the first time Markelle Fultz will be playing against his former team that drafted him No.1 overall in the 2017 NBA Draft. Fultz, who is averaging 9.7 rebounds and 3.1 assists in 23.5 minutes per game, should treat Wednesday matchup as a revenge game for him after Sixers traded him to the Magic for Jonathon Simmons and picks in last year’s trade deadline.
Moneyline: The Sixers will gut out another tough win over the Magic. After playing 35 minutes against the Cavs, expect Embiid’s minutes to drop a bit but still impacts the game in various ways.
ATS: The Sixers should expect a toe-to-toe battle with the Magic through the first three-and-half quarters before pulling away towards the end of the game and take another ATS win.
TOTALs: This game will go under the NBA over/under totals of 208 points. Magic is one of the, if not the worst, shooting team in the NBA. The Sixers aren’t as bad as the Magic, but they aren’t elite either on offense.
Score Prediction: 106-95 Sixers
