Philadelphia 76ers vs Minnesota Timberwolves - NBA Picks

Joel Embiid Of Sixers

Thursday, November 17, 2016 4:50 PM GMT

Joel Embiid is back in the lineup for the Sixers tonight after sitting out last night and with Philly’s offense a lot better with The Process in the lineup, there could be a ton of offense in this game with the Sixers coming off the back to back. Back the over in the NBA Odds in this one.

76ers vs. Timberwolves

Joel Embiid sat out last night for the first time at home, but he will be back in uniform tonight for the Sixers. With Embiid on the court this season, the Sixers' offensive rating goes up from 94.7 points per 100 possessions to 100.0.

I November, the Sixers have cashed the over in three of the five games that Embiid has played and with the Wolves' defense somewhere between bad and horrible, the Sixers actually might have a chance to score some points.

With Philadelphia coming off a game last night and with the Wolves playing at home, the over looks like a fine play at 211 points in the NBA Odds. The Wolves have cashed the over in five straight games and seven of their 10 games this season. As long as the Sixers put up a fight in this one, I expect a fast-paced game with very little defense. Even though the NBA Odds for the total have fallen some since they opened, I think it's moving in the wrong direction.
