76ers vs Knicks NBA Picks: Will Sixers Snap Losing Streak?

The Philadelphia 76ers have faced challenges following Joel Embiid’s extended absence due to a torn meniscus. Since the former MVP’s injury, the team has lost 11 of its last 17 games. The 76ers’ difficulties have been compounded by a current three-game losing streak, coinciding with Tyrese Maxey being sidelined with a concussion. The Knicks, on their end, will be missing OG Anunoby, Julius Randle, and Mitchell Robinson for these upcoming games.

The Sixers are set to visit New York for back-to-back games against the Knicks at Madison Square Garden, which will occur within a three-day span. For this first game, the Knicks are -7 on the NBA odds board, with the O/U at 211 points. Read on for my NBA best bets for Sunday.

76ers vs Knicks Moneyline Pick: Knicks +7

Despite missing Julius Randle, their second-highest scorer and top rebounder, along with OG Anunoby and Mitchell Robinson, the New York Knicks have maintained excellent defensive performance. They limit opponents to an average of 109.3 points per game, ranking them second only to Minnesota.

Conversely, the Philadelphia 76ers are navigating challenges without Embiid, their leading scorer and rebounder. They were also without Maxey, their secondary scorer and assist leader, on Friday, though he might return on Sunday. The 76ers are currently on a three-game losing streak and have a record of 0-2-1 against the spread (ATS) over these games. Moreover, Philadelphia has covered the spread in 2 two of its last 10 games. The absence of Embiid is significant, as evidenced by the 76ers scoring less than 100 points in four of their previous nine games and losing 8 of their last 10 games outright.

76ers vs Knicks Player Prop: Josh Hart Rebounds + Assists 14+ (-145)

We focus on Josh Hart’s reliability in surpassing the combined total of rebounds and assists. Under Tom Thibodeau’s leadership, Hart’s extensive playtime, exceeding 40 minutes in 9 of the last 10 games, has showcased the team’s need for him to succeed. As a versatile player, Hart’s role has shifted slightly with Jalen Brunson’s return, allowing him to concentrate more on collecting rebounds and dishing out assists rather than scoring.

Regarding the O/U NBA betting line, Hart has topped the 13.5 rebounds + assists mark in almost 89% of the games he played without Julius Randle this season, despite a recent dip against Philadelphia, where he fell short, which incidentally mirrors his past performance against the same team.

Despite the 76ers’ recent poor rebounding and defensive rating statistics, Hart’s performance remains unaffected. The expectation for Hart is high, anticipating that he will surpass the 13.5 rebounds plus assists threshold.
