Philadelphia 76ers vs. Washington Wizards Odds For Game 3
It’s been a nearly perfect start to the series for the Philadelphia 76ers. Game 1 was a lot closer than they would have preferred, but almost all of that had to do with Joel Embiid finding himself in early foul trouble. Game 2 was a complete dismantling of the Wizards. The Sixers won, 120-95, but it felt like it was even more lopsided than the score. Bow, the Sixers go out on the road, something that has caused them to struggle in the past.
Philadelphia 76ers vs. Washington Wizards Moneyline Odds
Philadelphia 76ers -220
Washington Wizards +194
As far as the moneyline is concerned, the 76ers are heavily favored to win and go up 3-0 in the series. Washington comes into Game 3 limping, literally in the case of Russell Westbrook, and may be on their way out. But, there is a glimmer of hope. The 76ers are a bad road team. Not as bad as they have been in the past, but they are a fraction of the team they are at Wells Fargo Center when they play on the road.

Philadelphia 76ers Preview
The reason this Philadelphia 76ers team is different than teams from the past is twofold. One, the team under Doc Rivers has shown the ability to maximize potential of its players rather than trying to fit square pegs into round holes. Part of that is Brett Brown’s fault, but a huge portion is also roster construction. This year’s team is built around Joel Embiid and makes sense in the modern NBA. They shoot and defend, two things you need to do to win a title.
The second difference is the depth. Guys like Furkan Korkmaz, Tyrese Maxey, Matisse Thybulle, Dwight Howard and George Hill give this team a legitimate second unit. They are not the same team without Embiid and Simmons on the floor, but they do a good job of offsetting that 7-foot-2 hole with their reserves.
Washington Wizards Preview
Watching Tobias Harris go off for 37 points in Game 2, including 28 in the first half, had to be frustrating for the Wizards. It seems like no matter what Russell Westbook and Bradley Beal do, they can’t keep up with the talent on the other side of the floor. I don’t think we need to go into the game that Davis Bertans had last time out. 0 points, 0 assists, 0 rebounds and six fouls in 24 minutes isn’t going to cut it.
Unfortunately for Washington, I just don’t know if they have the talent surrounding their two stars to win even one game in the series. But, if they’re going to steal a game, I think Game 3 may be their spot. Heading back home, they’ll have fans in the stands and won’t have to deal with idiots dumping popcorn on them.
