The Atlanta Hawks have been a great story here in 2021, and they will now get to test themselves against one of the favorites in the East when they take on Philadelphia at the Wells Fargo Center on Wednesday.
The Atlanta Hawks will be without their best player for this big matchup though, as Trae Young is still not expected to be ready with a return likely to happen this weekend. The big issue here for the Hawks is going to be how they deal with Joel Embiid on the interior, as it is tough to imagine Clint Capela being able to get the upper hand in this matchup given the pace Embiid has held all year.
At the end of the day the Hawks are almost playing like the Lakers right now, just piking up easy wins here or there and waiting until the playoffs to get healthy and then make a run, as Trae Young is not the only guy injured for this team.
The Hawks are missing guys like Kevin Huerter and Cam Reddish and possibly Goodwin which would make them even more thin at the point guard position, so despite the Hawks playing great this year, the 76ers are deserved 8 point favorites in this spot as Atlanta is just a mess at the moment.
The 76ers were able to snap their 4 game losing streak last time out in a 121-90 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder, but given the state the Thunder find themselves in right now, that is not the most impressive victory on Philly’s resume.
The best thing about that victory for the 76ers is the fact that Ben Simmons entered back into the starting lineup and looked serviceable, so the team is getting back to 100% at the right time going into the postseason.
At the end of the day though, it seems like this Philadelphia team is only going to go as far as Embiid will bring them, as the big man has been the main catalyst for this excellent season holding down MVP level production for the majority of the year.
NBA Betting Trends:
- Hawks are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games vs. a team with a winning % above .600.
- Hawks are 0-3-1 ATS in their last 4 Wednesday games.
Free Atlanta Hawks vs. Philadelphia 76ers NBA Prediction:
This seems like a very solid price on the 76ers, as I do not expect that we see the best out of Atlanta and 8 points just does not seem like enough given the fact that they are at home and have great individual matchups across the floor.
Simmons looked decent last time out and he should crush given where the Hawks are at point guard, while I think Embiid is a nightmare of a matchup for basically anyone in the East, so it is tough for me to see a path where the Hawks are able to keep this one close.
The vast majority of the early money is going on the 76ers though, so this very well could hit double digits by tip-off especially if more Hawks players are ruled out, as their are plenty who currently have the Q tag.
