Minnesota Timberwolves vs Philadelphia 76ers Prediction

The 76ers come into this game feeling great about their recent play, as they have won back-to-back road games, including a crucial win over the Bucks on Saturday. Philly has the most difficult schedule in basketball in the second half of the season, and they have navigated it pretty well to this point.

The main reason for that is the scoring champion from a season ago, Joel Embiid. Embiid once again will have an opportunity to win a scoring title as he ranks second in the NBA in scoring, averaging 33.2 points per game. His sidekick James Harden leads the league in assists and is quietly having one of the better years of his hall-of-fame career.

Minnesota, meanwhile, enters play tonight two games over the .500 mark. The Wolves have played some great basketball as of late as they enter this game on a three-game win streak. The most impressive thing about their mini-win streak is the fact that all three of their wins came away from Minnesota.

Prior to those three wins, the Wolves were just 11-18 on the road. They are hopeful that these wins will spark a run in their season as they have moved back into the playoff picture and will enter tonight’s game as the number six seed in a tightly contested Western Conference.

I am fading my hometown team tonight and backing the Timberwolves. We faded Philly last week against the Dallas Mavericks, and this is a similar spot in my eyes. The 76ers are due for some regression, and playing a road back-to-back against a team like the Wolves will be a tall task.

Secondly, this line has continued to move in favor of Minnesota despite 76% of public bets being on Philly. I would not be shocked if you saw some players sit out tonight for Philly on a road back-to-back. I believe the Wolves will continue to play solid basketball tonight and get us the win.
