Playing the fourth game of a five-game homestand, the red-hot 76ers host the Knicks , losers of six straight, in a 7 p.m.
Last week, Hartstein made a confident pick on Pelicans-Sixers, noting how New Orleans, a five-point underdog, was still adjusting to newcomer Nikola Mirotic .
He also knew J.J. Redick finding his shooting touch would spell trouble for the Pelicans .
The result: Redick shot 60 percent from the field as Philly rolled 100-82, easily covering the spread by double-digits.
Part of his success: Hartstein has a strong analytical background and a vast network of Vegas sources.
Philadelphia can cover the spread by limiting turnovers and getting quality possessions against a middling Knicks defense.
Joel Embiid can score from anywhere on the court, but too often settles for off-target 3-point shots early in possessions that lead to easy fastbreak points the other way.
