Philadelphia 76ers

Philadelphia 76ers so far have been underperforming compared to last season. Their second star player Ben Simmons is still not playing for them because he wants to be traded. The organization wants to keep him however Ben is doing anything he can to force a trade. With that being said, their star player Joel Embiid is currently been going off, carrying the team most games and leading them to 6th seed (1 game away from 4th). The other role players like Tobias Harris, Danny Green, Seth Curry, Shake Milton, Mattise Thybulle, Andre Drummond etc have been playing well also. We do believe that Doc Rivers is a good enough coach to keep them above .500 and secure a spot in the playoffs.

Charlotte Hornets

Charlotte Hornets have so far been good this season, specially when they’re playing at home. Lamelo Ball, Terry Rozier, Gordon Hayward, Kelly Oubre etc have all been great. The Hornets are currenty .538 with a record of 14-12, which puts them 7th seed (one under Philadelphia) so this game tonight can put them up above the 76ers if they manage to secure the win. The problem with this team is, Terry Rozier, Lamelo Ball, Ish Smith, Mason Plumlee are all out because of health and safety protocols. The team will be struggling without their stars, however last time they played against 76ers which was 2 days ago, the game went to overtime where the Hornets lost by 3 points.

Expected Lineups

Philadelphia 76ers: T. Maxey, Seth Curry, Danny Green, Tobias Harris, Joel Embiid.

Charlotte Hornets: Cody Martin, Kelly Oubre, Gordon Hayward, Miles Bridges, Nick Richards.

Charlotte Hornets vs Philadelphia 76ers Prediction

Prediction: Joel Embiid Over 27.5 Points
Odds: 1.87
Sportsbook: Bet365

Last time they played each other, the game was super close. Embiid on the other hand had 43 pts, 7 assists and 15 rebounds. With the amount of players the Charlotte Hornets are missing, we don’t see how they’ll be guarding Embiid. Embiid is one of the best centers in the league due to his ability to shoot the ball from pretty much anywhere and his strength and dominance in the paint. We believe that Embiid will have an outstanding game and continue to dominate and hopefully secure 28+ points. Good luck!
