According to oddsmakers from online sports book YouWager, the 76ers are 8.5-point road favorites to beat the Nets, while the over/under currently sits at 217.5 points at the majority of online sportsbooks.
Philadelphia opened as a 9-point favorite but the line was bet down to 8.5 at the majority of online sportsbooks. The total, meanwhile, hit the board at 217.5 and that’s where it currently sits.
WHO PUBLIC BETTORS LIKE
As of Friday afternoon, 62% of the betting tickets wagered at online sportsbooks for tonight’s game are on the 76ers to cover the point spread. Meanwhile, 71% of the betting tickets are on the over.
Jarrett Allen (foot) is probable for the Nets while Markelle Fultz (shoulder) is out for the Sixers. Other than that, there are no significant injuries to be aware of in this matchup.
The 76ers were in New York on Thursday and then hopped a flight back to Philadelphia so we could see a tired Sixers squad tonight. That would be perfect, because the under has been a great play in this series regardless. The under is 5-1-1 in the last seven meetings between these two teams in Philadelphia and is 11-3-2 in the last 16 meetings between these two teams overall. Meanwhile, the under has cashed in 10 of the Nets’ last 14 conference games, is 9-2-1 in their last 12 games playing on two days of rest, and is 5-2 in the Sixers’ last seven home games.
