It’s only a matter of time before the Philadelphia 76ers get their act together and there’s no doubt they’re the better team here, but there’s no way in hell I’m laying double-digit chalk with them in their current form. The 76ers have issues defensively and the offense hasn’t been clicking either. While the Pacers have things to work out as well, they are fourth in scoring through the first week. The 76ers have to show signs of life before I’m laying this number. Give me the Pacers.
