Milwaukee Bucks vs Philadelphia 76ers betting tips and predictions for Tuesday’s NBA game on TNT. The Bucks will try to end their 2-game slide as they travel to Philadelphia to take on the 76ers. Read on for all our free predictions and betting tips.
The game against the Sixers couldn’t have come at a better time for these Milwaukee Bucks who have struggled quite a bit recently. With just 1 win in their last 5 games they’ve slipped to 10th in the Eastern Conference. Of course, we all know that’s not the spot they’ll finish the season in, but if they don’t start winning soon things might get complicated come playoff time. Yesterday the team visited the White House, something we haven’t seen either of the last 4 NBA champions do. That experience should be a moral boost for a team that’s not had much to celebrate early on in the season. Bucks are just 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games.
The injuries just keep on pilling up for the 76ers and the latest victim is Joel Embiid who has now been placed in the NBA’s health and safety protocols. Without the big man, Philly didn’t stand much chance and lost last night to New York. In his absence it was Andre Drummond who stepped up with 14 points and 25 rebounds, but the Sixers depth has taken a big hit as only 3 players came off the bench. Embiid joins Tobias Harris, Isaiah Joe, Grant Riller, Ben Simmons and Matisse Thybulle on the sidelines. Danny Green is also questionable, but he could play. Philly has covered the spread in 5 games straight, but you have to wonder if that stat is relevant now after their latest injury setback.
Milwaukee has struggled on both ends, but they have the best player in tonight’s game and they could also get Jrue Holiday back for this one. The injury situation in Philadelphia is just too much to handle right now, so I’m going to side with the Bucks in this one.

Philadelphia 76ers – Milwaukee Bucks Prediction
Get -110 odds on Milwaukee -6.5 Point Spread at bet365!
The total has been set at a pretty high 222.5 Points here, considering the circumstances both teams are in. Games from both of these teams have trended towards the under lately – Milwaukee’s last 7 have cashed, Philadelphia’s last 5 of 6 as well. This also goes for head-to-head meetings with 4 of the last 5 going under the total. Milwaukee is still without Khris Middleton, he averages around 20 points per game. Philadelphia has about 70 points per game out with injuries right now and last night against the Knicks they failed to crack the 100-point mark. They do play solid defense and are currently 6th in the NBA in points allowed at 102.6 per game. I think we’re in for a slow paced game and whoever gets more stops on the defensive end will come out on top. Let’s back the under in this one.
