Preview

The Philadelphia 76ers will travel to Milwaukee to take on the Bucks. The teams play for the second time this season. The Bucks won the last matchup 118-109 on Nov. 10, with Antetokounmpo scoring 31 points points in the win. The Bucks covered as -6.5 favorites.

PHILADELPHIA 76ERS

The Philadelphia 76ers get here after being smashed by the Celtics. Joel Embiid had 19 points and nine rebounds for the 76ers. The NBA's leading scorer entering the contest averaging 29.5 points, Embiid had his string of games with at least 25 points end at 31 in a row. Millsap racked up nine points (3-6 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), three rebounds and one assist over nine minutes.

In their franchise history, the 76ers have had only six losses by greater margins than the 48-point blowout on Tuesday. 

The Philadelphia 76ers are averaging 107.2 points on 46.4 percent shooting and allowing 105.7 points on 45 percent shooting and ranked #6 in defense in the league.

MILWAUKEE BUCKS

Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 50 points in the Milwaukee Bucks' 128-119 victory against the Indiana Pacers.

The Bucks are 22-16 in Eastern Conference games. Milwaukee is second in the Eastern Conference scoring 113.1 points while shooting 46.1% from the field..

Milwaukee are 6-4 in their last 10 games and are averaging 118.1 points, 42.9 rebounds, 25.7 assists, 7.7 steals and 3.0 blocks per game while shooting 49.7% from the field. Their opponents have averaged 116.6 points per game.

The Bucks have won the last 6 head to head games against the sixers.

BETTING TRENDS

Philadelphia are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games.

Philadelphia are 8-4-1 ATS as road underdog.

Milwaukee are 11-19 ATS at home.

Milwaukee are 10-17 ATS as home favorite.

Prediction

I won fading the 76ers at home vs Celtics but they've only been +6 pts underdogs 4 times this season and have a 2-1-1 ATS record. The Bucks don't cover the spread at home, they're only 11-19 ATS at home and 10-17 ATS as home favorites, also I don't think Giannis will score 50 points again. I'll take the sixers with the points.

PICK: 76ers +6 (-110)
