Bucks vs. Sixers Predictions
After earning the top spot in the East with a record of 49-23 SU last year, Philadelphia stumbled out to a surprisingly pedestrian start to this season, as the Sixers opened with a lackluster 16-16 SU and 13-18-1 ATS stretch – while scoring just 105.4 OPPG during that timeframe.
Philadelphia has absolutely dominated since the closing days of December though, considering the Sixers boast impressive records of 30-12 SU and 22-19-1 ATS across their last 42 games – while tallying 111.4 OPPG and allowing just 106.7 DPPG across that stretch.
On the other hand, Milwaukee also posted a surprisingly poor start to the season, as the Bucks kicked things off with a lackluster 6-8 SU and ATS skid – with four of those SU losses coming in matchups they were favored in.
The Bucks have quietly dominated since their opening skid though, considering Milwaukee enters Tuesday riding a sturdy 40-20 SU and 29-31 stretch – while generating 116.5 OPPG and surrendering 111.5 DPPG during that timeframe.
I’ll take the over here, as the Bucks are 7-3 SU and ATS in their last ten games, while generating 122 OPPG and surrendering 117.6 DPPG during that span – setting the stage for a fast-paced back-and-forth battle against a Sixers squad that’s scored 116+ PTS in 9-of-16 matchups since James Harden’s debut (113.6 OPPG).

Milwaukee Bucks Betting Analysis
- SU: 46-28
- ATS: 35-39
- O/U: 36-38
After finishing with the best record in the East in two of the last three seasons, Milwaukee’s rough start was somewhat of a head-scratcher, considering the Bucks’ compiled a record of 162-65 SU across the previous three regular seasons, only to open this season with a lackluster 6-8 SU mark.
Milwaukee has played excellent, when healthy, since mid-November though, considering the Bucks boast a sturdy 40-20 SU record across their last 60 games – with roughly a quarter of those losses coming in the absence of two-time MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo (5).
Philadelphia 76ers Betting Analysis
- SU: 46-28
- ATS: 35-37-2
- O/U: 32-39-3
After finishing first in the East with a record of 49-23 SU last year, the Sixers posted a surprisingly mediocre start to this season, as Philadelphia went just 16-16 SU across their opening 32-game stretch – while averaging just 105.4 OPPG during that span.
Joel Embiid single-handedly carried Philadelphia from December to the trade deadline though, considering the Sixers enter Tuesday riding an impressive 30-12 SU and 21-19-1 ATS run, propelled by Embiid averaging 32.5 PPG, 11.6 REB, 4.2 AST, and 1.5 BLK across that window.
However, help has arrived in the form of Harden, as Philadelphia acquired the ten-time All-Star from Brooklyn at the trade deadline, and he’s made an immediate impact, highlighted by the Beard averaging 21.4 PPG and 9.7 AST across the Sixers’ latest 11-5 SU stretch.

However, the Sixers are 1-1 SU against Milwaukee this season, with both matchups going over the total at an average of 235 PPG.

Bucks vs. Sixers Betting Conclusion
After getting stomped in Memphis this past Saturday (L, 127-102), the Bucks hit the road again for Tuesday’s contest as short favorites over the Sixers at Wells Fargo Center – marking the third time Philadelphia has been an underdog across their last five games.
I’ll take the over here, as the Sixers are 11-5 SU and 7-8-1 ATS since Harden’s debut, while tallying 113.6 OPPG and surrendering 109.1 DPPG during that span – setting the stage for a competitive high-scoring battle against a Bucks squad that’s averaging 122 OPPG across their latest 7-3 SU run.
