The Philadelphia 76ers travel to the Moda Center to take on the Portland Trail Blazers on Monday night. Here’s a 76ers vs Trail Blazers Prediction.

Philadelphia 76ers

The Philadelphia 76ers have cooled off from their six-game win streak as they are now hoping to snap a two-game skid after falling short to the Nuggets in a 111-105 road loss on Saturday. Paul Reed led the team with 30 points, 13 rebounds and two steals, Kelly Oubre Jr added 25 points while Marcus Morris and Patrick Beverley scored 17 points each. As a team, the 76ers shot 53 percent from the field and six of 22 from the 3-point line as they were neck and neck with the Nuggets in a close contest, until they went cold and managed just 17 points in the fourth quarter to allow the Nuggets to slip away in the end.

Philadelphia 76ers Team Facts

  • The 76ers have won each of their last nine games as favorites following a road loss.
  • The 76ers have covered the spread in eight of their last nine games following a road loss.
  • Seven of the 76ers’ last eight games as favorites against the Trail Blazers have gone OVER the total points line.

Portland Trail Blazers

Meanwhile, the Portland Trail Blazers have been in poor form as they’ve lost four of their last five games overall and they will be hoping to avoid a third straight defeat after getting beaten by the Bulls in a 104-96 loss last night. Jerami Grant led the team with 24 points, Deandre Ayton added 22 points with 12 rebounds on nine of 12 shooting while Malcolm Brogdon chipped in with 16 pointst and six assists off the bench. As a team, the Trail Blazers shot just 40 percent from the field and six of 33 from the 3-point line as they poured in 33 points in the third quarter to erase an 11-point deficit, only to go cold in the fourth quarter to allow the Bulls off the hook in a close one. The Blazers will play against the Bucks after this game.

Portland Trail Blazers Team Facts

  • The Trail Blazers have lost each of their last eight home games when playing with a rest disadvantage.
  • The Trail Blazers have failed to cover the spread in 14 of their last 16 home games against Eastern Conference opponents.
  • Each of the Trail Blazers’ last 10 night games against Eastern Conference opponents have gone UNDER the total points line.

76ers vs Trail Blazers Prediction

The 76ers could be shorthanded here with Tyrese Maxey, Joel Embiid and Tobias Harris all listed as questionable, while the Trail Blazers are still without Shaedon Sharpe and Moses Brown. This is definitely a game where you want to check the lineups before tipoff, but even with the injury cloud, I still like the 76ers to get the win and cover over this slumping Trail Blazers squad playing on zero days rest.
