Who Wins?

The Sixers are 8-1 SU in their last nine games played. Philadelphia is 5-6 SU in 11 road games played this season, and 10-2 SU in their last dozen games against the Eastern Conference. The Wizards are 1-5 SU in their last six games played. Washington is 3-11 SU in their last 14 games played at home. Head to head, the Sixers are 6-4 SU in their last 10 games played against the Wizards. However, Washington is 9-0 SU in their last nine home games against Philadelphia.

Philadelphia heads to this game with a four-game winning streak and they have won eight out of their last 10 games played. However, three out of their last four wins have come at home and the Sixers are just 5-6 SU on the road this season. Philly will be without Josh Richardson who is out with a hamstring injury.

The Wizards are a rebuilding team and they are without their top player in John Wall who is out with an Achilles injury. They have lost three straight games and are likely going to miss the postseason. Washington will also be without Thomas Bryant in this game as he is out for at least three weeks with a stress reaction in his right foot.

Philadelphia isn’t a very good road team but Washington hasn’t been a good team at all this season and will be without Thomas Bryant here. Not only is Bryant their second-leading scorer but he is also their top rebounder. The Wizards rank 28th in rebounding and without Bryant, they will struggle against the Sixers’ size.

  • Odds from BetOnline as of 12/05/19

The Wizards have allowed at least 125 points in four out of their last five games played and they have scored at least 120 points in three out of their last four games played.

The Sixers have given up 104 or fewer points in eight out of their last 10 games. Washington likes a high-scoring game but Philadelphia’s defense is going to dictate this game.
