Joel Embiid is averaging 33 points and 4 assists, while James Harden is averaging 21.7 points and 10.6 assists.

Giannis Antetokounmpo is averaging 31.3 points and 12 rebounds, while Jrue Holiday is averaging 19.8 points and 5.1 rebounds.

The 76ers are 9-4 ATS in their last 13 games playing on 1 days rest and 7-2 ATS in their last 9 Saturday games. The Bucks are 6-2-1 ATS in their last 9 Saturday games and 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The under is 4-1 in 76ers last 5 overall. The over is 4-1 in Bucks last 5 home games. The 76ers are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Milwaukee and 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings.

The Philadelphia 76ers in the underdog role is attractive, but I'd need more points to consider them here. The Milwaukee Bucks are playing some of their best ball of the season right now, which includes winning their last 5 games by an average of 16 points. The Bucks win at home by an average of 8.4 points. The Bucks are healthy and rolling right now. The chalk is reasonable. Give me the Bucks.
