NBA Tuesday: Philadelphia 76ers at Charlotte Hornets
AccuScore simulates every game 10,000 times based on historical data and compares its results to the public odds to derive value and make picks
On Tuesday night, the Philadelphia 76ers travel to face the Charlotte Hornets in AccuScore's daily free NBA forecast of the day. AccuScore analyzed the odds and actually found that Vegas has this game right, so there is not side value on either team based on the current odds. The Philadelphia 76ers are 55.1% favorites according to AccuScore and 55.2% favorites according to Vegas.
Similarly, Charlotte +2.0 may be slightly more likely to occur than Philadelphia -2.0, but the margins are slim and neither outcome occurred in 50% of simulations. This is a close game and the Sixers are favorites on the moneyline, but there's much value to speak about on the moneyline or against the spread. So, that leaves the totals. Here, the computer does find value. With a Total points line of 214.0, 56% of AccuScore's 10,000 simulations went UNDER. The average score was Philly 106.5, Charlotte 103.4.
