76ers at Pelicans picks and predictions

Prediction

76ers 114, Pelicans 109

Moneyline

PASS.

While not by much, the spread presents better odds on the 76ers (-140) than the moneyline.

Against the spread

BET 76ERS -2.5 (-110).

The 76ers are 12-5 ATS this season and 5-2 ATS on the road. Embiid and Co. have been playing well on the road of late, going 4-1 in their last 5 games while they are still missing the added production of Oubre.

The Pelicans are just 6-4 straight up at home this season and have lost back-to-back games as favorites.

Over/Under

BET UNDER 229.5 (-105).

The Under is 3-2 in the Sixers’ last 5 road games and 2-1 in their last 3. For New Orleans, the Under is 7-3 in their last 10 games, including 3-1 in their last 4 at home. While this game should be a battle, expect the defense to be stronger than the offense, allowing the Under to hit.
