Philadelphia 76ers Betting
The Philadelphia 76ers are still the best in the NBA Eastern Conference despite losing back-to-back games. This happened on the road as they earned losses against the Portland Trail Blazers and Phoenix Suns. Joel Embiid led the team with 35 points and eight rebounds while Ben Simmons had an all-around performance with 18 points, six boards and four assists. Tobias Harris also had 18 points while Danny Green and Seth Curry each had 10. The bench didn’t help much as the starters were the only players who made it to double-figures. In order to win over the Jazz, their bench has to step up.
