Joel Embiid - NBA Tips

Betseeker’s expert NBA tipsters have you covered for the best tips and predictions for every game of the NBA season.

Joel Embiid is back for the 76ers and against the Cavs minus Jarrett Allen we could see the Philadelphia big man produce a monster game.

Best Bet

76ers @ Cavaliers (11:10am)

Joel Embiid
Over 30.5 Points

Embiid managed 30 points upon return from injury against the Hawks, and we should fully expect Joel Embiid to go bigger in his second game back against the Cavs.

He averages 36.3 points from his last seven games, covering 30.5 points in five of those, and with the 76ers without both James Harden and Tyrese Maxey we should see his usage through the roof.

With Jarrett Allen likely missing from this Cleveland outfit, the Cavs won’t be able to tag team him with Evan Mobley at Embiid, and with centres averaging 10% above average against Cleveland over the last month do not be surprised if we see Embiid go for 40+ paying $3.50.

Next Best

Bucks @ Knicks (11:40am)

Over 227
Total Points

Madison Square Garden is the home of the shootout this season. The Knicks have gone over the total points in six of their last seven games at home including their last five, and it’s covering by plenty.

The average total points differential this season at home for the Knicks is +20.1, and from their last five games at Madison Square Garden the total points has averaged 255.

The total points in three of Milwaukee’s last four games have hit 230, and this contest should cover 227 total points with ease. When the alternate total point markets open, look at taking over 249.5 for value.

Value Bet

Wizards @ Nets (11:40am)

Bradley Beal

Since returning from covid protocols on November 16, Beal has averaged 26.3 points from his last six games producing 25+ points in five of those games.

Beal fell short of 25 and his line of 22.5 last game against the Timberwolves, but his minutes were slightly down due to a blowout where he managed 22 points.

Last time Beal faced the Nets he only scored 20 points, but this was in a blowout, so he played less than 30 minutes. With the Wizards playing much better basketball since this loss, they should be a lot more competitive this time around and we should see Beal cover 22.5 points and manage 25+.
