Matt McCuen gives his NBA best bet for the day. This time he's eyeing the Los Angeles Lakers vs Philadelphia 76ers.

NBA Best Bet for Wednesday: Los Angeles Lakers vs Philadelphia 76ers

We are on an insane NBA run at the moment, and I know we are going to continue that tonight. We have an absolutely loaded slate, but I found one game in particular that I love. The Philadelphia 76ers will head west to take on the Lakers on Wednesday night. These two teams have had opposite seasons as the 76ers enter play as the number two seed in the east led by MVP Favorite Joel Embiid. The Lakers have had the most disappointing team of any NBA team this year as they are battling to make the play in-game.

The one bright spot for the Lakers has been Lebron James, who is playing better than ever at age 37. The stuff Lebron is doing at his age is not human-like. He is currently the leading scorer in the NBA, just passing Philadelphia's Joel Embiid two nights ago. This battle between Embiid and Lebron will be fun to watch in itself tonight.

The Laker's struggles have been magnified all season long, but they will look to close the season on a high note. They are three games ahead of the Spurs in a play-in position, and they are trying to fend off the Pelicans to be the nine seed. They will have a challenging path into the playoffs, but many still believe if Anthony Davis returns, this is a playoff team. Russell Westbrook's first year in LA has been rough, but he is another play that is loaded with talent that could make an impact. This should be a good one tonight!

The play I am turning to tonight is going to be to back the Lakers with the points. I know what everyone is thinking why bet on the Lakers but as a Philly fan, I know when to fade them. I think Philly wins this game most likely, but they are laying far too many points here. The Laker's last win over the Cavs was very encouraging for them and should spark some kind of momentum tonight.

This is a tough spot for Philly as they will be playing out on the west coast against a desperate Lakers bunch. I believe the Lakers will play with a ton of spirit in this game tonight and give it everything they have. These are pivotal games for the Lakers as they battle for playoff life. Lebron James is more motivated than ever and once again showing why he is one of the best to ever play the game. I believe he has a massive game tonight and leads the Lakers to a cover on their home floor. Let’s keep up this crazy run and cash in another pick tonight!
