Better not to lose at home
I think that's probably on the minds of every Philadelphia player right now. The fans of this team are adamant. And after their loss on the road, they need a win at home against today's opponent.
Overall, Doc Rivers' team has a good stretch, with six wins and only two losses in January, no new losses in the squad, Embiid in perhaps the best form of his career. All the conditions to keep clinging to higher places.
Weakest in the East
Alas, there's no undoing that fact. Orlando have only managed to win eight times in 45 games this season. The team isn't putting out bad games, where there is a struggle against almost any opponent, but pulling out wins lacks the resource.
One win in nine games in January, and the only thing you can count on today is the willingness to beat a strong opponent without much chance of winning.
Expert Betting Tips
The clear favourite in the home side gives a not so wide option to choose from. But in all bets, we will be relying on Philadelphia, Embiid has no one to stop him, so his stats, too, can be looked at.
