BETTING TRENDS

New York are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games.

The total has gone OVER in 6 of New York's last 7 games.

New York are 1-7 SU in their last 8 games on the road.

Philadelphia are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games.

The total has gone OVER in 4 of Philadelphia's last 5 games.

Prediction

Harden and Embiid are looking unstoppable and this will be the first game for Harden on the court with his new team in Philly. The Knicks won't be able to stop them, they're allowing 119.1 ppg in their last 10 games. The Sixers allow 105.38 ppg at home so the Knicks won't hit their average. This should be another blowout, take the 76ers to cover.

PICK: 76ers -10.5 (-110)
