Bet of The Day – 22nd Feb: NBA
SAT, FEB 22ND – 8:30PM ET:
PHILADELPHIA 76ERS @ MILWAUKEE BUCKS PICKS,
The Boston Celtics face off against The Minnesota Timberwolves this Friday and we feel the value lies with the Timberwolves and Over Points total market! The Timberwolves are going to be without Karl-Anthony Towns, but the Celtics will also be shorthanded without Kemba Walker. The Wolves have a lot of new moving pieces, but D’Angelo Russell is in a great place for this team and has really found his form

- Bucks -8.5 Point Spread @ -110
- UNDER 227 Points @ -110

Against The Spread Pick
Nothing could be more typical of the Philadelphia 76ers than their last 11 games. They lost at Toronto, won two straight home games, lost four in a row on the road, and then reeled off a four-game home winning streak. That’s right; Philadelphia is 0-5 on the road and 0-6 at home during this stretch. For the season, the 76ers are a ridiculous 26-2 at the Wells Fargo Center and 9-19 everywhere else. The Milwaukee Bucks have won each of their three most recent home outings by double-digits. MVP favorite Giannis Antetokounmpo came back from the all-star break and delivered 33 points and 16 rebounds during a 126-106 blowout at Detroit on Thursday. Philadelphia is 6-19-2 ATS in its last 27 on the road, 4-12-1 ATS in its last 17 against opponents with winning records, and 1-4 ATS in its last five trips to Milwaukee. The Bucks are 6-1 ATS in their last seven overall, 4-1 ATS in their last five at home, and 6-0 ATS in their last six as favorites. MILWAUKEE should be able to cover the spread.
Milwaukee took care of visiting Philadelphia 112-101 earlier this month. The 76ers went to overtime with Brooklyn on Thursday and even so only 216 total points were scored. Ben Simmons (probable) missed that contest due to a back issue. The under is 8-3 in the 76ers’ last 11 on the road, 9-1 in their last 10 against opponents with winning percentages over .600, and 8-1 in their last nine as an underdog. It is also 5-1 in the Bucks’ last six on Saturday. Look for this one to stay UNDER the total. . Take the UNDER.
