Prediction: Indiana Pacers @ Philadelphia 76ers, NBA
- Title : Prediction: Indiana Pacers @ Philadelphia 76ers, NBA
Joel Embiid has played only one of the Sixers' three regular-season games against the Indiana Pacers and led his side to a win with a 32-point, 11-rebound performance in that tie. Indiana dominated the Philadelphia 76ers in his absence in the other two games so Brett Brown will be expecting Embiid to make his interior presence felt on both ends of the court.
Key Player - Joel Embiid
This line opened with the Sixers favored by 4, and all of the money on Philadelphia has now made the Pacers the value. People are jumping on the fact that Joel Embiid, who did not play in Indiana's two wins over the Sixers this season, will play on Saturday. But I believe that Indiana covers this spread about two-thirds of the time. You're getting good value with the Pacers at this price.
Prediction: Inidiana +5.5 points
