What you need to know about the 76ers

Philadelphia split its first four games of the season, but it has now won its last two contests. The Sixers dominated Atlanta on Saturday, notching a 122-94 blowout in a game that featured two of the top teams in the Eastern Conference. Tobias Harris led Philadelphia in scoring for the third time this season, posting 22 points and 11 rebounds.

Point guard Ben Simmons remains sidelined for personal reasons, but Philadelphia is receiving plenty of help from its bench. Third-year guard Matisse Thybulle had 11 points, four steals and three blocks in the win over Atlanta. The 76ers are in an excellent scheduling spot on Monday, playing their third consecutive home game following a day off.

What you need to know about the Blazers

Portland’s defensive numbers have not been great this season, but the Trail Blazers rank fifth in the NBA offensively. They are scoring 113.8 points per game, led by shooting guard CJ McCollum’s average of 24.3. Star point guard Damian Lillard is off to a slow start by his standards, scoring 18.3 points per game.

Lillard will be motivated to bounce back from a poor performance on Sunday, where he shot just 5 of 20 overall. The Trail Blazers have always bounced back under Lillard’s leadership, so there is no reason to expect things to change on Monday. They have covered the spread in six of their last seven games against Philadelphia. 

How to make 76ers vs. Trail Blazers picks

The model is leaning over on the total, and it’s also generated a point-spread pick that is hitting in almost 70 percent of simulations. You can only see the pick at SportsLine.
