NBA Injury Alert: Ben Simmons is questionable with back tightness — should you change your 76ers bet?

Since I handed out the Sixers as part of an NBA teaser in an earlier post, just needed to point out that it has now come out that Ben Simmons is questionable with back tightness. Hey, you might want to still play the Sixers anyway. Because they’ve lost only twice all season at home, and with the teaser I’m only asking them to win by a field goal. But if this is enough of a reason to stay away, I get it. You can never have enough information. So due what you must. There’s always other bets to make.

If he doesn’t play it could obviously impact the game, even though the Houston Astros’ owner might not concede as much. You do your due diligence, and sometimes discretion is the better part of whatever. Having said that, the Sixers will probably go out and cover anyway. That’s what makes this stuff so fascinating, more often than not.
