Philadelphia 76ers vs Portland Trail Blazers Prediction And Betting Odds

Philadelphia 76ers vs Portland Trail Blazers: Betting Tips, Prediction & Betting Odds

Joel Embiid and his 76ers have come under a lot of criticism following the team’s decision to rest the big man in Saturday’s 111-105 loss at Denver. Tyrese Maxey and Tobias Harris also sat out the game with injuries, Embiid has not played in Denver since 2019 and many analysts are saying he is ducking Nikola Jokic on his home turf. Whether or not that is the case, we’ll find out as soon as tonight’s game in Portland where the Sixers are playing a much inferior Blazers team. Philly dominated the first meeting of the season 126-98, tonight’s game is another opportunity to post great numbers for Embiid and to grab an important road win against a vastly inferior opponent. Philadelphia is 4-1 SU/ATS in the last 5 games head-to-head.

Following a 1-3 SU road trip, the Blazers returned home and played the Chicago Bulls last night, losing 104-96. That’s now 2 games in a row for the Chauncey Billups led team in which they’ve failed to score more than 100 points, which is very concerning when you have the reigning MVP coming to town. The Blazers are breaking all kinds of negative records on offense this season, this team just isn’t equipped with enough talent to score the basketball at a high level. They’re dead last in offensive rating (107.8 points per 100 possessions) and are also posting the 3rd worst Net Rating in the NBA at -9.1 points. They’ve won only 3 times in their last 10 games vs Atlantic Division opponents, while in January they’re just 4-11 SU over their last 15 outings. The one advantage they have coming into tonight’s game is health, with only Shaedon Sharpe being a notable name on the injury report.

Philadelphia 76ers Point Spread Prediction

Philadelphia 76ers -8 Point Spread is available at -110 odds

The 76ers have cooled off from three-point land, connecting on just 6, 7, 5 and 5 threes in their last 4 games. But, I still like them against one of the worst teams in the NBA. They are 12-9 ATS in road games this season and with the return of their 3 best players they should be able to control this game from start to finish. Take the 76ers to cover.

76ers vs Trail Blazers Total Points Prediction: Under 224.5

Under 224.5 Total Points is available at -110 odds

A fresh pair of legs for Embiid, Maxey and Harris will help the 76ers reach a high total in this game, but I’m not sure if Portland can follow suit after seeing them score only 96 and 100 points over their last 2 games. Both teams have been poor from three-point line in their last game, if that carries over to tonight’s game I think the 76ers will rely more on their defense to bring this one home. This team ranks 6th in defensive rating this season, allowing just 111.9 points per 100 possessions. We just saw their reserves hold the defending champions Nuggets to only 111 points in Saturday’s loss, which is encouraging. Portland’s inability to score has seen 8 of their last 11 games go under, plus 12 of their last 20 games at Moda Center as well. They’re also 1-11 on the O/U in their last 12 games vs Eastern Conference teams, so there’s a big enough sample size to conclude that backing the under is the best way to approach this game.
