Up first, we've got the Atlanta Hawks traveling to Philly to take on the Sixers. The Sixers are a 6-point favorite with the over-under set to 224 and 1/2. Philadelphia's 11 and 1 straight up in their last 12 games at home. And Atlanta is two and four against the [INAUDIBLE] in their last six games against Philadelphia.
Look, we don't know if Embiid is hurt. He had a terrible second half last game. But I still think the Sixers have enough firepower and home court advantage to win this one and cover six points. I like the Sixers here.
Our next match is in Salt Lake City where we've got the Clippers taking on the Jazz. The Jazz a favorite by 2 and 1/2 with the over-underset to 221 and 1/2. LA is 0-7 straight up in their last seven games with playing on the road against Utah.
And Utah is nine and two straight up in their last 11 games at home. Everything on paper is telling me to beat the Jazz here. But my gut's saying the Clippers have finally turned it around and are going to win this game, win this series, and go to the Western Conference Finals for the first time since ever.
