The 76ers are coming into this game as a 6 point underdog with the current betting odds according to Draftkings Sportsbook. The 76ers have been playing well in their games recently and they have been doing it while a few of their starters are injured. The Bucks also have a few of their key players injured but they have been playing much worse without the help of those players.
