The NBA kicks off its week with a heavy slate of 12 games on Monday. Of the 12, Milwaukee vs. Philadelphia won’t inspire the largest national audience, but it’s a fun battle between two young, exciting (and shorthanded) teams.
Milwaukee should be favored when the line comes out, but it will be interesting to see if oddsmakers give Philly much credit in spite of their reasonable record against the spread as of late.

The Milwaukee Bucks were enjoying a solid season behind the leadership of Giannis Antetonkounmpo and Jabari Parker for the majority of the season before the latter went down with his second torn ACL.
To begin the year, Milwaukee looked like a squad that would certainly be in line for one of the final four playoff seeds in the Eastern Conference. Now, following Parker’s injury, the team sits in 10th place.
The good news for the Bucks is that they’re still within striking distance of the final playoff spot. They’re tied with the Miami Heat (ninth place) and just 1.5 games behind the No. 8 seed Detroit Pistons.
With young players like Thon Maker and Khris Middleton to complement the Greek Freak, all hope isn’t lost for this group.
It will take a strong finish to the season, and getting the week off on the right foot with a win against Philly will be the first step.
Like Milwaukee, Philly became one of the most exciting young teams in the NBA earlier this season.
Joel Embiid was the consensus Rookie of the Year, T.J. McConnell had made a name for himself as a scrappy point guard with a surprisingly clutch shot, and all the while the team was waiting for Ben Simmons (No. 1 overall pick in 2016) to make his debut.
It even looked as if the playoffs could be on the horizon if all stars stayed aligned.
Then, the Sixers came crashing down to Earth.
Embiid is now out for the season and Simmons’ debut has been delayed until 2017-18. But the good news is that young players like Dario Saric and Robert Covington are still playing competitive basketball.
Guys like them should keep this game relatively close.

Free Milwaukee Bucks vs. Philadelphia 76ers NBA Prediction:
Although the line hasn’t yet been set for this contest, two things are clear based on what we know about this season and what we know about these two teams.
For starters, the Bucks should win this game. The Sixers are doing what they can to avoid a losing culture, but even a shorthanded Milwaukee squad will do damage against Philly.
The other thing we know is that recent trends indicated that Philadelphia should keep this one closer — or at least close depending on what the spread looks like.
