Bucks vs 76ers Prediction & Pick
Recent history has proven that the Bucks are one of the teams that the 76ers simply can't solve. Philadelphia has dropped seven of its last eight games against Milwaukee, having not beaten the Bucks at the Wells Fargo Center since Christmas Day 2019.
Having said that, the 76ers have the perfect opportunity to turn things around. The Bucks will be without Khris Middleton, Pat Connaughton and Joe Ingles. Giannis Antetokounmpo can obviously do a lot on his own, but it'll be tougher for him to keep pace with the likes of Embiid, Harden and their surrounding cast.
I'm still expecting a competitive affair, however, the 76ers should emerge as the victors.
Final Score Prediction: 76ers: 117 | Bucks: 113

Bucks vs 76ers Best Bet
The Bucks and 76ers seem to bring out the best in each other, with each of their last five games surpassing tonight's 223.5-point projected total.
Even with Middleton out of the lineup, there's more than enough enough talent on the court to put on the same kind of high-paced, competitive game we've seen between these two sides lately, providing a lot of entertainment along the way.
