The Philadelphia 76ers are looking to bounce back after an embarrassing loss at the hands of a Washington Wizards team without Bradley Beal. Luckily, Joel Embiid is still playing at an MVP level and is capable of carrying them to a solid bounce-back victory. The Dallas Mavericks are no pushovers though as they currently rank fifth in the Western Conference. For Dallas, they are coming off an even worse loss after being defeated by the lowly Oklahoma City Thunder despite Luka Doncic’s 40-point performance. It will be interesting to see which of these squads come out looking hungrier for a bounce-back win.

76ers vs Mavericks Prediction | NBA Picks

While it is a good bet for this to be a game that goes down to the wire, this is an instance where the betting on the road team will probably pay off. Both teams are riddled with injuries, but the 76ers have the advantage down low. Expect Philadelphia to take advantage of Porzingis’ absence clearing space for Embiid to operate. Tobias Harris is one of the more underrated players in the league and his ability to stretch the floor at the power forward spot will really assist in letting Embiid play bully ball once he gets in position on the block. It is hard seeing the Mavericks having an answer for the MVP candidate and with that, I have them winning a close game.
