Philadelphia 76ers 22-10 (14-17-1 ATS)
Philadelphia managed to break off its series of three defeats in a row. In recent matches, the Sixers beat Washington (125-108) and Detroit (125-109). True, before the match with Milwaukee the Embiida game uniform is alarming. This season, the Cameroonian does not look like itself and plays below its capabilities.
Moreover, Joel may not play in the confrontation with Milwaukee, as it has some health problems. Without it, confronting the leader of the East will be very difficult.
In the standings of the East, Philadelphia is still in fifth place. The Sixers have won 22 wins. This is five less than the Milwaukee.

In recent fights, Mike Budenholzer’s wards defeated the Lakers (111-104), the Knicks (123-102) and the Indiana (117-89). One of the best in those fights was Yanis Adetokunbo, without whom it is difficult to imagine today’s “Bucks”.
