On Sunday night, the Sixers will wrap up the regular season against the Detroit Pistons. The Sixers clinched home court advantage in the first round with yesterday’s win over the Indiana Pacers. If the Boston Celtics beat the Memphis Grizzlies today, the Sixers will face the Toronto Raptors in the first round of the NBA playoffs regardless of the outcome of this game with the Pistons.

Sixers vs. Pistons Betting Pick (April 10, 2022)

This was a strange Sixers season, which is really saying something given the team’s often bizarre history.

Notable happenings in the season included but are not limited to:

  • COVID-19 impacted several of the games in the early part of the season. Joel Embiid missed nine games. Tobias Harris missed six games. It’s impossible not to wonder whether their absences during those games are the difference between, say, the second seed in the conference playoffs and their likely fourth seed.
  • Ben Simmons never played one minute for the Sixers this season. After being traded, Simmons didn’t play a minute for his new team, either. Regardless, the way Simmons’ Sixers career ended was something none of us had ever seen before.
  • James Harden made a splashy entrance, and has played for the most part at the level he was playing at for the Nets. But Harden’s playoff record is fairly woeful, and if the Sixers fail to proceed past the second round of the playoffs (again), it will be interesting to see what the Sixers do with Harden, or what they don’t do with him.
  • Embiid carried the Sixers for long stretches of the season and, in a world without Nikola Jokic, Embiid would be the consensus Most Valuable Player in the league. Presently, though, Jokic seems likely to win the award, and if Embiid never has a season this great again, he may be left to rue how close he came this time.
  • Head coach Doc Rivers is in the second year of his five-year contract, and already there are Sixers fans concerned about Rivers’ unusual rotations and, as with Harden, past playoff shortcomings.

If the Sixers beat the Pistons, they will finish with a record of 51-31. That’s supposed to be cause for excitement. If we’re all being truthful, though, the Sixers are demonstrably worse than the three teams ahead of them in the Eastern Conference standings (Miami Heat, Milwaukee Bucks, Boston Celtics) and they might not be as good as the Raptors. A win tonight would be nice, but it won’t fix what’s broken.

Embiid may not win the MVP, but it’s pretty clear that he isn’t going down without a real fight. Embiid has scored over 40 points in three of his last four games, and at least 37 in five of the past eight.

The Sixers are playing the second half of a home back-to back and, as of this writing, Embiid is the only player the books have player props on offer for. In every professional sport, the last game of the regular season is often wonky in terms of who plays, who doesn’t, for how long, etc. So the first quarter projects to be a little unsettled.

Sixers to Win Both First and Second Quarters (-120, FOX Bet)

One of the most damaging losses of the season came at Detroit a week and a half ago. The Pistons have fallen back into losing ways since then, and the revenge factor for the Sixers should be pretty high. Additionally, this will probably be the easiest game that this Sixers group will play for the rest of this season. They might as well have some fun while they still can.

With so much uncertainty surrounding who will play in this game (and who will not), and with the Sixers playing the second half of a back-to-back, there isn’t a basis to lay the points here. If you absolutely, positively have to have action on this game, you should probably pay the tax.
