Philadelphia 76ers Betting
The Philadelphia 76ers are the leading team in the NBA Eastern Conference standings and are just half a game over the Brooklyn Nets at 26-12. This team has a stroke of bad luck to start the second half of the season having Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons in quarantine. Adding to that, Joel Embiid is expected to miss two weeks with an injury while Simmons remains in quarantine. They were able to maintain their winning streak and it will be a huge challenge to hold on to their position in the standings from here on. Much is on the shoulders on Tobias Harris to be the go-to guy while Dwight Howard needs to channel his old dominant version.
Players to Watch: J. Embiid C 31 GP 31 GS 32.6 MIN 29.9 PTS 2.2 OR 9.3 DR 11.5 REB 3.3 AST 1.2 STL 1.4 BLK 3.2 TO 2.5 PF 1 AST/TO 31.53 PER
