Here's everything you need to know about 76ers vs. Grizzlies on Saturday, April 6 — our expert prediction and betting picks for today's game.

The Philadelphia 76ers and Memphis Grizzlies meet in a cross-conference weekend clash in the NBA on Saturday night.

Both teams have won two in a row, so one of those winning streaks will come to an end tonight. The only question is, which side will it be? With the Sixers entering as double-digit favorites, the oddsmakers have made their feelings known.

Philadelphia 76ers

The 76ers are turning into the scariest team in the NBA.

With reigning MVP Joel Embiid back in the lineup, the Sixers won their last two games after beating the Thunder and Heat. These were both tough tests for Embiid in his first return to action, but the big man passed those big tests.

The Sixers are a new-look team with Embiid back and the additions of Buddy Hield and Kyle Lowry, both of whom fit perfectly in Nick Nurse's scheme.

Philly has the easiest strength of schedule in the NBA, which includes meeting the beat-up Grizzlies right now. With the urgency to get up and out of the play-in, I'll play 76ers to win this game.

Memphis Grizzlies

The Grizzlies have the vast majority of the players and team salary stuck on the injury list. They'll will be without Ja Morant, Desmond Bane, Jaren Jackson Jr., Marcus Smart, John Konchar, Santi Aldama, Vince Williams, Brandon Clarke, Ziaire Williams, and Luke Kennard. That's not even all of them, but those names are notable.

Memphis is also on the second leg of a home back-to-back after beating the Pistons handily on Friday. This is a tough schedule spot for the Grizzlies, who have a health and rest disadvantage despite needing a win.

I don't expect this one to be close, but the Grizzlies have played spoiler on large spread numbers quite a few times this season.

76ers vs Grizzlies

Betting Pick & Prediction

The biggest market differential in this game is the -835 moneyline price at BetRivers. This game is nearly -1000 at every other book and gives the bettor an additional near 2% edge by grabbing the best number available.

When playing a heavily-juiced ML, we don't need to jack up our exposure to win a full unit. For this, I'm risking two units to return one-quarter of a unit of net winnings.

My sports analogy is this is the betting version of hitting your three-foot putt. Sink the easy ones, and stack some good wins.

Pick: 76ers ML (-835 · 2 Units to Win 0.24 Units)
