The 76ers are 15-35-2 ATS in their last 52 road games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Hornets are 10-4 ATS in their last 14 Wednesday games and 10-4 ATS in their last 14 games overall. The over is 10-4 in 76ers last 14 overall. The over is 6-2-1 in Hornets last 9 overall. The 76ers are 5-0 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Charlotte and 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
The Philadelphia 76ers may be without Embiid for this contest and they're only winning on the road by an average of 0.9 points. The Charlotte Hornets seem to have their swagger back with three straight wins and they're shooting 41.4 percent from three in their last five games. Possibly without the 76ers best player, I'm going to take my chances with the Hornets and the points at home.
