A clear difference between this year and last for San Antonio is DeMar DeRozan. Indeed, DeRozan is the franchise player that can make for an immediate NBA betting online asset. Upon his arrival the Spurs became a bona fide Western Conference title contender. Supplementing DeRozan is LaMarcus Aldridge, one of NBA’s top power forwards. Together this tandem has made the Spurs highly profitable. Philadelphia also has a franchise player in center Joel Embiid. The 76ers have developed a great offense with this big man. But his tight back has been a threat to keep him off the court recently.

Spurs Vs. 76ers TV Coverage: ESPN
Late on Philadelphia has suffered an NBA betting online drop off in value. The Sixers have paid in just three of their last eight games. And three of their last four have gone under the total. Joel Embiid has kept his status as probable but worrisome. Yet his average of 27 points and 13.2 rebounds per game remains elite among NBA centers. Philadelphia is now 30-17 straight up, 22-25 vs. the odds and 27-20 over the total. The Sixers are second in the Atlantic Division behind the Toronto Raptors.
