Portland Trail Blazers vs Philadelphia 76ers Analysis

The Portland Blazers are in the middle of a road trip that has had its ups and downs. After losses to Atlanta and Boston, as well as victories over Orlando and Detroit, they are currently 31-35 – tied for 11th in the Western Conference playoff race with Utah and Oklahoma City – but only one game behind Lakers and Pelicans at 32-34. On Wednesday night in Boston, the Blazers suffered a 115-93 loss to the Celtics. Portland shot only 36% from the floor and made just 11 of 39 three-point attempts – which is third lowest in the NBA. Damian Lillard led all scorers with 27 points and 8 assists; his average of 32.3 points per game ranks third overall in this league. Jerami Grant added 13 points and 6 rebounds as well. Jusuf Nurkic returned from injury and played 17 minutes Wednesday; however Anfernee Simons remains uncertain for Friday’s contest.

The Philadelphia 76ers are on fire right now, having won three straight games and 9 of their last 12. At 43-22, they sit just 2 games behind the second place Celtics and 4 behind first-place Milwaukee. On Tuesday evening, Philadelphia completed a successful road trip by defeating Minnesota 117-94; that made it four out of five wins on the trip. In their win over the Timberwolves, the Sixers were unstoppable from three, making 15 of 25 shots from long range. NBA leading scorer Joel Embiid led all scorers with 39 points and grabbed 7 rebounds with 4 threes; his average is 33.3 points and 10.1 rebounds per game. Tyrese Maxey added 27 points with 4 threes while Tobias Harris had 10 points, 14 rebounds, 4 assists, and 4 steals. James Harden did not play due to a foot injury and is questionable for Friday’s contest.

Portland Trail Blazers vs Philadelphia 76ers Free Pick

Two key players for both teams are questionable, Harden for Philadelphia and Simons for Portland. But the Sixers can still win without Harden as long as Embiid is on the floor. Portland faces an uphill battle to stop Embiid, while also needing help defending threes which is a key part of their offense. With four straight losses against the spread and likely road weary players, NBA betting experts expect Philadelphia to easily handle business here; take them to cover the spread.

Free Pick: Philadelphia 76ers -8.5 (-116)
