ML: Knicks +200/ 76ers -240
Total: Over / Under 223
The Pick: New York Knicks +6.5
Knicks are playing well, travel well, and battle their Atlantic division rivals every time. The last time NY traveled to Philly they won 106-104. They’ve taken 2 of the last 3 meetings, one being a 108-97 home win over the 76ers 5 days ago. The one loss came at home 119-112. New York’s won 3 of their last 4 overall games, they’re 18-9 ATS on the road this season and 8-3 L11 road games vs teams with a winning record. The 76ers have lost back-to-back games and failed to reach 100 points in both. They have scored more than 109 points just once in their last 5 games. Even worse, they're 21st in defensive rating over their last 10 games. The Knicks bench helps keep these games close. Their second unit has a net rating that ranks 4th compared to Philly’s 14th. Expect another tight back and forth affair between these two. Take the points. Worth mentioning Embiid is questionable with a foot injury. He’s missed just one game with the designation and we expect him to play, but if not, +6.5 will be a steal!
