The Sixers have had a fairly impressive start to the season, opening the campaign 14-6. Performance hasn’t been as consistent for Utah, who now find themselves just 12-8.
Philly now find themselves 5.5-point favourites in this spot, getting 70% of the action thus far. I think this is a bounce-back spot for the Jazz here and will look to take them plus the points.
Despite their stellar 14-6 record, Philly have had the luxury of a relatively easy early schedule. Their recent form has also tailed off somewhat, evidenced by very narrow wins against New York, Sacramento, and Indiana.
They also aren’t fully healthy for this game, with Josh Richardson expected to miss this one. Not only does this worsen their shooting, it also takes away one of their best defensive options on Donovan Mitchell.
Given that Philly tend to dominate on the interior, coming up against Rudy Gobert is a far from ideal matchup. I expect him to contain Embiid in the post, meaning the big Cameroonian will need to be firing from deep.
I also see this as a potential rebound spot for Utah; a way to salvage something from a pretty awful road trip. They were walloped by Toronto yesterday and I think they come out with greater energy and motivation as a result.
If Mike Conley can break out of his slump, this has the makings of a side that should be top 10 in both offense and defense. I’m expecting a fairly close affair here and getting Utah through the key number of 5 looks like good value.
Tip: Philadelphia 76ers at $1.39
