The Philadelphia 76ers look to stay hot after winning seven of their last eight games.

Joel Embiid is averaging 22.8 points and 12.3 rebounds while Tobias Harris is averaging 18.1 points and 7.1 rebounds.

The Jazz are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games playing on 0 days rest, 5-11-1 ATS in their last 17 Monday games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 vs. Eastern Conference. The 76ers are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games playing on 1 days rest, 2-5 ATS in their last 7 home games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Jazz are 0-5 ATS in the last 5 meetings and the under is 9-3 in the last 12 meetings. The over is 4-1 in Jazz last 5 overall. The under is 5-1 in 76ers last 6 overall.
The Utah Jazz have been in a bit of a funk these past few games, and they just got absolutely torched by the Toronto Raptors last night. The Philadelphia 76ers haven't been as impressive as the numbers may indicate, but they are unbeaten at home this season and win those games by an average of 10.8 points. The 76ers also took the Jazz down to the wire in the first meeting last month, and that was with Simmons leaving due to a shoulder injury. At full strength, at home and with the rest advantage, the 76ers should be able to cover the reasonable chalk.
