Two teams sitting on opposite sides of the Eastern conference table are clashing today, when the team with the worse record in the NBA, the New York Knicks (10-46), who have been terrible having won only once in their last twenty-six games, are hosting the fourth Philadelphia 76ers (36-21), who are looking to bounce back after their latest defeat.

Spread: New York Knicks +9.5
New York Knicks have a 10-46 record (23-32-1 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the last place of the whole league. They have lost 25 of their last 26 matches and in their last game they lost on the road against the Cavaliers with a 104-107 score, not beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Dennis Smith Jr with 17.4 ppg, adding 3.2 boards and a team high 6 dimes per game. He is followed by Emmanuel Mudiay with 14.7 ppg and 3.9 dimes per game but he is out with an injury.
Philadelphia 76ers have a 36-21 record (27-30 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the 4th place of the East. In their last game they saw a two-game winning streak getting snapped by losing at home against the Celtics with a 109-112 score, not beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Joel Embiid with 27.3 ppg, adding a team high 13.5 boards per game. He is followed by Jimmy Butler with 19 ppg and 5 boards, while JJ Redick adds 18.6 ppg.
Sixers have won all three previous meetings against the Knicks earlier this season, winning the only road game by 3 points. Knicks have a 4-22 home record, while the Sixers are 13-14 on the road. Sixers are better both offensively, scoring 115.7 ppg to Knicks’ 105.2 and defensively, allowing 112.2 ppg to Knicks’ 114.2 ppg. They also have better percentages both in field goals (47.4% to 43%) and in 3-pointers (36.2% to 33.6%). Sixers are also better both in boards grabbed (47 to 44.2) and in dimes made (27.3 to 19.8), while Knicks are better in turnovers committed (13.1 to 15.1). Sixers are the absolute favorite and Vegas odds give them a -9.5 spread and expect them to beat the odds for an easy road victory.
Philadelphia 76ers vs New York Knicks Prediction: Philadelphia 76ers -9.5 (-109)
