76ers vs. Nets Prediction
Is the total set too high in tonight's 76ers and Nets matchup in Brooklyn at 7:30PM ET?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Nets are now 3-point home favorites versus the 76ers, who only opened as a 1-point underdog. As for the total, the number hit the board at 225.5 but has been bet all the way down to 221.5.
Philadelphia enters play tonight having dropped six of its last 10 games but the Sixers continue to be excellent at the betting window, covering in eight of those 10 contests. The team is also 46-27 against the spread on the season, which includes an ATS mark of 21-16 on the road this year.
Brooklyn has split over its last 10 games and is 7-3 against the spread during that span. The Nets are 35-35 at the betting window on the season but have struggled to cover the number at home, going 16-21 ATS in Brooklyn this year.
OUR PREDICTION: Even though the under has already dropped four full points, it's still too high in my eyes. The under is 9-1-2 in the last 12 meetings between these two teams overall and is 4-1-1 in the last six meetings in Brooklyn. The under is also 6-2 in the 76ers' last eight games playing on one day of rest and is 3-1-1 in the Nets' last five home games. The under is also 18-7-2 in the Nets' last 27 games when facing a team with a losing record.
