The Philadelphia 76ers look for a victory to end their preseason with a perfect 5-0 record. The Philadelphia 76ers are averaging 119 points on 49.3 percent shooting and allowing 88.3 points on 36.5 percent shooting. Joel Embiid is averaging 18.7 points and 6.7 rebounds while Josh Richardson is averaging 14.5 points and 4.5 rebounds.

The Wizards are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS loss and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The over is 15-5 in Wizards last 20 games following a straight up loss. The under is 6-0 in 76ers last 6 games following a straight up win and 6-0 in 76ers last 6 games following a ATS win. The Wizards are 1-6 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Philadelphia. The over is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings in Philadelphia and 6-2 in the last 8 meetings.
The Philadelphia 76ers are perfect this preseason and have done nothing but run away in those games with an offense that's shooting a high percentage across the board and a defense that's given up nothing easy. The Washington Wizards don't have the depth to counter these 76ers when they're playing well. I don't love laying big chalk in the preseason, but I almost have no choice here.
