76ers at Bucks picks and predictions


Bucks 111, 76ers 110



The Bucks (-190) should win, but the price on their moneyline is a little high. Bet the spread and/or total instead.

Against the spread

BET 76ERS +4.5 (-105).

Philadelphia cut a 25-point 3rd quarter deficit to just 4 points last time out, before eventually blowing the comeback opportunity in the 4th quarter. The 76ers should be motivated to bounce back after that tough loss at the Mavericks and should be able to keep it close vs. a Bucks team that has played below expectation against elite competition lately.

While Milwaukee has the 2nd-best home record this season at 27-5 straight up, the Bucks are just 5-17-1 ATS in their last 23 home games vs. teams with a winning record on the road. It doesn’t help Milwaukee’s case when you factor in that Philadelphia is 5-2 ATS in its last 7 road games vs. teams with a winning record at home. Look for the 76ers to come out much more focused Saturday and potentially put an end to the league-leading Bucks’ 16-game win streak.


BET UNDER 231.5 (-110).

The Under is 4-1 in Philadelphia’s last 5 games and 4-0 in the 76ers’ last 4 after allowing 100 or more points in their previous contest. The Under has hit in Milwaukee’s last 4 games after scoring more than 125 points last time out and Saturday’s playoff-like atmosphere should lead to another low-scoring meeting between these teams.
