76ers look for four straight
Philadelphia is riding a three-game win streak right now following a 90-87 win at New York on Saturday. The 76ers are 28-16 on the season, 8-14 on the road, 18-22-4 against the spread and 23-20-1 with the under.
The 76ers are holding opponents to just 104.9 points per game this season while opponents shoot just 45.3 percent against them. Offensively, Philly is averaging 108.5 points per game while shooting 46.8 percent from the floor. The 76ers continue to be without Joel Embiid due to his hand injury, while Al Horford is questionable today with a hand injury of his own. Tobias Harris is leading the team with 19.4 points and 6.7 rebounds per game while Ben Simmons is adding 15.5 points, 7.7 rebounds and 8.4 assists per contest.
Nets drop three straight
Brooklyn is coming off a three-game losing streak right now following a 117-97 loss at home to Milwaukee on Saturday. The Nets are 18-23 on the season, 11-10 at home, 18-23 against the spread and 21-19-1 with the under.
The Nets are putting up 109.2 points per game while shooting 43.9 percent from the field. Defensively, Brooklyn is giving up 111.5 points per game while holding opponents to 43.8 percent shooting. Kyrie Irving is leading the team with 26.5 points, 5.3 rebounds and 6.9 assists per contest. Spencer Dinwiddie is adding 21.8 points and 6.4 assists per contest.
NBA Betting Trends
The 76ers are 3-12-1 against the spread in their last 16 road games and 1-4-1 ATS in their last six games as an underdog.
The Nets are 1-8 against the spread in their last nine games following a failed cover and 1-5 ATS in their last six when playing on 1 day of rest.
These two met just a few days ago with Philly getting a 117-106 win at home. The home team has won and covered in both meetings this season. Philly is having some issues on the road, as they have been held under 100 points in four of their last five road games. Brooklyn was banged up on Saturday and that impacted the offense, but they are healed up for today’s game and I think that will guide them to the win and cover. The Nets have more offensive weapons right now and the 76ers could be severely limited in the frontcourt.
NBA Prediction: Brooklyn Nets -1.5
