The 76ers haven’t lost at home but away from home, their record is 5-6. That said, the Washington Wizards will let them score at will and they76ers have more talent and depth. Moreover, Philly’s length should cause the Wizards problems.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: 76ers ATS
Trying to conger up who’ll guard Joel Embiid with Thomas Bryant out and can’t think of anyone who’ll stop him which has me thinking he’ll drop a massive double-double and Ben Simmons likely notches a triple-double.
