I know it’s enticing to bet the Thunder to cover while listed as double-digit dogs tonight, especially with how great they have been ATS this year, but I just don’t see that happening. The Sixers are finally healthy after Joel Embiid (33.6 PTS, 9.9 REB, 1.7 BLK), James Harden (21.8 PTS, 11 AST, 6.5 REB), and Tyrese Maxey (21.2 PTS) have missed a combined 45 games this season.
Note: Sixers “Big Three” combined 68 points, 24 rebounds, and 18 assists in Tuesday’s win against Detroit.
