The Portland Trail Blazers are averaging 104 points on 43.6 percent shooting and allowing 112.5 points on 49.1 percent shooting.

Philadelphia 76ers Betting Preview
The Philadelphia 76ers look for a win to get above a .500 record. The Philadelphia 76ers have won 5 of their last 7 home games. The Philadelphia 76ers are averaging 115.5 points on 50.6 percent shooting and allowing 112.5 points on 47 percent shooting. Tyrese Maxey is averaging 32.5 points and 7.5 assists, while Joel Embiid is averaging 29 points and 8 rebounds.

The Philadelphia 76ers are allowing 45.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 40.5 rebounds per game.
It would surprise nobody if the Philadelphia 76ers blew the doors off in this contest. The Portland Trail Blazers haven't played much defense through 2 games, and now they're going to be without one of their best scorers in Anfernee Simons. However, the 76ers are on the end of a back to back, and that includes having to get out of Canada. The Trail Blazers are a young squad that could push the pace and potentially take advantage of tired legs. Lots of points here. I'll take a shot with the Trail Blazers.
