NBA Odds for Wednesday, November 15, 2023

Boston Celtics at Philadelphia 76ers

Matchup Spread Total Moneyline
76ers vs
+4 (-110)
-4 (-110)
o225.5 (-110)
u225.5 (-110)
  • Opening Point-Spread: 76ers -1.5
  • Opening Money-Line: 76ers -120
  • Opening Total: 224
  • Time: 7:30 p.m. ET (ESPN)

The Boston Celtics and Philadelphia 76ers will renew their rivalry on Wednesday, November 15, 2023, when they meet at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia. The two teams are expected to be among the top contenders in the Eastern Conference this season, and this matchup could be a preview of a potential playoff series.

The 76ers opened as home favorites but the number has flipped drastically to the Celtics, who are now road favorites. Philadelphia could be without reigning MVP Joel Embiid for the game, prompting the move.

The two teams just met one week ago on November 8, 2023 from the same venue and Philadelphia secured a 106-103 victory as a three-point home underdog.

The rematch should be a close one according to the oddsmakers, as both teams are very evenly matched. The Celtics have the better overall talent, but the 76ers have the home-court advantage.

However, Philadelphia did lose at home 132-126 last night to Indiana. That setback snapped an eight-game winning streak for the 76ers and they'll be playing on zero days rest this Wednesday.

Sacramento Kings at Los Angeles Lakers

Matchup Spread Total Moneyline
Lakers vs
-1.5 (-110)
+1.5 (-110)
o234.5 (-112)
u234.5 (-108)
  • Opening Point-Spread: Lakers -2.5
  • Opening Money-Line: Lakers -142
  • Opening Total: 232.5
  • Time: 7:30 p.m. ET (ESPN)

The Sacramento Kings seek their fourth consecutive win as they face the Los Angeles Lakers in a Pacific Division battle at Crypto.Com Arena.

The Lakers own a perfect 5-0 home record following Tuesday's 134-107 blowout of the stumbling Grizzlies as 6.5-point favorites. DeAngelo Russell led the Lakers with 24 points, but L.A. has failed to cover back-to-back games this season.

Sacramento heads south on I-5 after beating Cleveland on Monday night in De'Aaron Fox's return to the Kings' lineup. Fox missed five games due to ankle injury but scored 28 points in a 132-120 victory over the Cavaliers.

The Kings beat the Lakers at home in late October, 132-127 in overtime as Fox led Sacramento with 37 points. Sacramento has won and covered five of the last six meetings with Los Angeles since January 2022.

Oddmakers have the Lakers as slight home favorites in this contest with the total sitting at 235, which is one point lower than the previous matchup in northern California last month.

Milwaukee Bucks at Toronto Raptors

Matchup Spread Total Moneyline
Raptors vs
+4.5 (-110)
-4.5 (-110)
o228 (-110)
u228 (-110)
  • Opening Point-Spread: Bucks -3
  • Opening Money-Line: Bucks -152
  • Opening Total: 225.5
  • Time: 7:30 p.m. ET

The Milwaukee Bucks are currently the worst ATS team in the league at 1-8-1 through 10 games. The Bucks sit one-half game behind the Pacers for first place in the Central Division heading into tonight's contest north of the border against the Toronto Raptors.

The Raptors rallied from a 23-point deficit to stun the Wizards on Monday night, 111-107. Toronto failed to cash as 8.5-point home favorites, but the Raps limited Washington to one point in the final 7:30 of regulation to even their mark at 5-5 on the season.

The Bucks assumed the acquisition of star guard Damian Lillard from Portland would boost Milwaukee to the top of the Eastern Conference.

Lillard is averaging 22.8 ppg in eight games this season but is coming off a dreadful shooting night by going 3-of-17 from the floor in a 118-109 home win over Chicago on Monday.

Milwaukee is looking to avenge a 130-111 defeat in Toronto two weeks ago as four-point road favorites. Lillard and Giannis Antetokounmpo combined for 31 points in the loss, while the Bucks fell behind by 22 points at halftime.

Minnesota Timberwolves at Phoenix Suns

Matchup Spread Total Moneyline
Suns vs
-6 (-110)
+6 (-110)
o224.5 (-110)
u224.5 (-110)
  • Opening Point-Spread: Suns -6
  • Opening Money-Line: Suns -255
  • Opening Total: 230
  • Time: 9:00 p.m. ET

The Minnesota Timberwolves survived a heated affair in San Francisco last night by outlasting the Golden State Warriors, 104-101. Jaden McDaniels was ejected early in the first quarter following a scuffle with Golden State's Klay Thompson, but Minnesota regrouped for its 8th win in 10 tries this season.

The Wolves square off with the Phoenix Suns tonight, marking Minnesota's first game with no rest this season.

Phoenix has gotten off to a head scratching 4-6 start, while dropping the last two games at home to the Lakers and Thunder. Granted, the Suns have dealt with early injury issues to their backcourt with Devin Booker and Bradley Beal missing time.

Beal has played in each of the last three games for the Suns, as they are 1-2 in that span but have failed to cover in any of those contests.

Phoenix is in the midst of a 1-4-1 ATS mark in its last six games in the favorite role, while Minnesota has won and covered in its past three opportunities as an underdog.
