The Wolves are coming off two straight wins, but on Saturday they have a tall task as they head into Philadelphia to play the Sixers. The NBA Odds makers have Philly as a -7 favorite, but the better play between these two teams might be on the total.

The Sixers’ defense has been extra good over their last five games, but they are also in the midst of a very easy final stretch of the season, as they’ve faced five straight lottery teams and they have faced non-playoff teams in seven of their last nine games.

Now against an offense like the Wolves, the Sixers probably won’t have as much success defensively, even at home. In their last nine home games against playoff teams from both conferences, the Sixers are 6-3 cashing the over.

In those nine games, it’s been their defense that’s won them games. However, in non-conference games, the Sixers are 14-13 cashing the over.

On top of that, the Wolves have been racking up the points lately, and without Jimmy Butler, their defense has taken a turn for the worse. Minnesota is averaging 113.6 points per game over their last five, and they are giving up even more than that during that same stretch.

Philadelphia, on the other hand, is scoring nearly 117 points per game over their last five games, and with the Wolves cashing the over in four of their last five games, tonight is a good chance to cash the over in this early start intra-conference game.
