Preview

The Philadelphia 76ers hit the road and will visit the Charlotte Hornets at the Spectrum Center on Friday night. These teams already faced each other earlier this season in Philadelphia where the 76ers took the win 134-131.  

 

Philadelphia 76ers

The Sixers get here with a 8-8 record as they have won 3 of their last 5 games and are 5-5 at home so far this season ranking 4th in the Atlantic Division. In their last game at home, they lost 112-109 against the Timberwolves. Embiid had 32 points, nine rebounds and made 18 of 20 free throws. Milton had 27 points and Melton 19. The 76ers have already played without James Harden for two weeks because of a right foot tendon strain and they added starting guard Tyrese Maxey to the injury list with a broken left foot suffered Friday. P.J. Tucker suffered an unspecified injury against the Timberwolves and Joel Embiid injured his left ankle/foot following a late-game collision with a teammate.

Joel Embiid leads the 76ers with 32.2 points per game, 10.2 rebounds, and 4.5 assists. James Harden leads in assists with 10 per game and 21.8 points.

In their last 10 games the 76ers are 7-3, averaging 108.0 points, 43.6 rebounds, 26.3 assists, 7.9 steals and 5.4 blocks per game while shooting 48.3% from the field. Their opponents have averaged 106.5 points.

Charlotte Hornets

The Hornets get here with a 7-18 record and are 4-8 at home so far this season ranking 4th in the Southeast. In their last game at home, they lost 122-116 against the Nets. Terry Rozier scored 29 points and Kelly Oubre Jr. had 28 for the Hornets and has scored at least 20 points in 6 consecutive games.

Kelly Oubre Jr is leading the team with 20.4 points per game. M. Plumlee leads in rebounds with 8.3 per game while Smith Jr. has 6.3 assists for Charlotte.

In their last 10 games, the Hornets are 3-7, averaging 110.1 points, 42.8 rebounds, 30.0 assists, 8.1 steals and 5.3 blocks per game while shooting 48.9% from the field. Their opponents have averaged 117 points.

 

BETTING TRENDS

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

Philadelphia are 5-10 SU in their last 15 games against Charlotte.

The total has gone UNDER in 7 of Philadelphia's last 9 games on the road.

Philadelphia are 2-13 SU in their last 15 games when playing on the road against Charlotte.

Charlotte are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games.

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

Charlotte are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games.

 

Prediction

The 76ers have been pretty good lately and playing tough defense like they used to play past seasons as they have allowed less than 90 points in each of their last 2 games. The Hornets continue to struggle and have one of the worst records in the league. They already lost against the 76ers earlier this season as well but the 76ers are 2-13 in the last 15 games playing in Charlotte. However, the Hornets are still dealing with injuries while the 76ers are full healthy so I'm going with the 76ers on this one. 

PICK: 76ers -4 (-110)
