Philadelphia 76ers Betting
The Philadelphia 76ers have slipped to the sixth place in the NBA Eastern Conference playoff picture with a 37-25 record and for the past ten games, they have won 60%. They are now on back-to-back losses and if it was not for their victory against the New York Knicks, they could have been on a four-game losing streak. The Sixers suffered another blow as their two best players, Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons, are expected to miss some time in this crucial stretch of the season. It will now be up to Tobias Harris and Al Horford to carry this team now and it is going to be a tough stretch until one of their two best players come back from injury.
