The Milwaukee Bucks and Philadelphia 76ers are both expected to be among the top teams in the Eastern Conference this season. But only the Bucks have lived up to that billing early in the season so far. In our NBA betting picks for Friday, we break down Bucks vs 76ers from Philadelphia.
Bucks vs 76ers Betting Pick
This game will be played at Wells Fargo Center at 7:30 PM ET on Friday, November 18, 2022.
Why Bet The 76ers:
✅ The Bucks are really banged up right now. Pat Connaughton, Wes Matthews, and Khris Middleton are all out for this game. Jrue Holiday is also questionable for this contest. That will be too much for the Bucks to overcome.
✅ Milwaukee is 11-3 on the season, but most of that success has come at home. They are 8-1 at home and 3-2 on the road, and their lack of success on the road will cost them here.
✅ Philadelphia has won two straight games and is playing well coming into this potential Eastern Conference Finals preview.

The Milwaukee Bucks come into this Friday night matchup with the 76ers with the second best record in the Eastern Conference. They are 11-3, and have feasted on a home-heavy schedule early on. But they face a tough road test here in Philadelphia, where their health could be a huge factor throughout the game.
There are several key players out for the Bucks in this game, including Khris Middleton and Wes Matthews. With multiple starters down for this game, including the potential for Jrue Holiday to be out as well, Giannis will have to be even more spectacular than usual in order to help the Bucks get a victory.
For the Philadelphia 76ers, this season has not gone according to plan in the early stages. They are 7-7 on the year, with the absence of James Harden really hurting them early in the season. Here, the Sixers are aiming to get above .500 with a third straight win, but will need to beat the Bucks in order to get there.
Stopping Giannis Antetokounmpo is going to be the key to this game for the Sixers, which is the key for any team playing the Bucks. Antetokounmpo has scored 30 or more points in three of his last four games against the Sixers, and another big game from him could cost the Sixers dearly.
