Plus odds on the Bucks against a Sixers team without Joel Embiid are too good to pass up. Milwaukee has won their first three games coming out of the All-Star break (an overall four-game winning streak), and Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 30 or more points in each of the last two. Since getting Jrue Holiday back, the Bucks have looked a lot more like the contender they were projected to be at the beginning of the season. Philly without Embiid just doesn't have enough to compete.

Both of these teams are coming off convincing wins against bad teams—Chicago against the Thunder, San Antonio against the Pistons. The Bulls are on a back-to-back, but it's a home back-to-back so the usual caveats don't apply here, and they look like they've figured some things out after some recent stumbles. This spread is close but give the edge to the home team.

The Clippers won the first game of this two-game series pretty convincingly, but the Mavs post-All-Star break are a different team. Kristaps Porzingis has looked much more like the best version of himself at both ends of the floor—maybe he's finally healthy, or maybe he's just more comfortable. The Clippers still have issues, as seen with their recent blowout loss to the Pelicans. They're the better team on paper, but they haven't consistently enough to feel comfortable taking them to win both games of the series.
