The Philadelphia 76ers host the Utah Jazz at the Wells Fargo Center in our NBA free pick for Tuesday. The 76ers will look to remain undefeated at home, as they will look to earn their 10th consecutive win. On the other hand, the Utah Jazz have been shaky on the road so far this season, losing six of their last ten matches. Before we get into our preview for tonight’s match, we would like to remind our readers that our NBA picks are now available for purchase. You can get today’s picks for only $5.
Philadelphia 76ers vs Utah Jazz
Monday, December 2 – 19:00 EST – Wells Fargo Center
The 76ers have been a real force to be reckoned with at home this season. They join the Heat, Raptors, and Celtics as the only teams yet to lose at their home ground. Despite not having the best offence in the league, the 76ers have shown time and time again that they are capable of edging out teams. Moreover, Philadelphia holds one of the best home defences in the league. They rank 3rd while conceding an average of 99.11 points. The main players to watch for in this team are Joel Embiid and Tobias Harris. Embiid is averaging 22.8 points per game and has made 118 field goals this season. Harris is averaging 18.1 points per game and has made 143 field goals. Look for this duo to continue racking up the points for the 76ers.
On the other hand, the Jazz are not playing well on the road. Despite their positive form when playing at home, it seems like they have trouble squeezing out wins on their travels. The Jazz rank 23rd in the league when it comes to points scored on the road. Much like the 76ers, their strengths are shown in defence. With that being said, Utah ranks 5th in the league for least points allowed when playing away. The Jazz concede an average of 106.73 per game. Donovan Mitchell leads the team with 24.9 points per game. Moreover, Rudy Gobert ranks 3rd in the league in the rebounds category with 13.8 per game.
Given the fact that these teams play better defensively than offensively, we can expect this game to be tight. However, the 76ers should have the advantage here. They will want to keep their unbeaten record at home intact. For that reason, we are expecting them to please their fans once again.
