TV Broadcast: TNT


Betting on the Brooklyn Nets (+10.0)

Regular Season Record: 45-37

The Nets got blown out in Game 1, suffering a 121-101 road loss against Philadelphia. Despite that loss, Brooklyn still managed to impress with their 55.7 percent shooting from the field and 13/29 shooting from the 3-point area. The Nets will have to be better on the glass in Game 2 to prevent Philly from having so many extra possessions, which the Sixers had a lot of in the series opener. Brooklyn was led in Game 1 by Mikal Bridges who had 30 points. Over their last 10 games, the Nets have averaged 112.5 points, 41.1 rebounds, 26.7 assists, and 6.7 steals. The Nets are 5-1 against the spread in their last six games on a Monday.

Betting on the Philadelphia 76ers (-10.0)

Regular Season Record: 54-28

Joel Embiid did not shoot very well in Game 1, going just 7/15 from the field but still finished with 26 points to lead the Sixers. He’s too good of a player for Sixers fans not to believe that he can be so much more efficient in Game 2. In any case, Embiid will have the support of James Harden and Tobias Harris, who scored 23 and 21 points, respectively in the series opener in which the Sixers also went off for 21 3-pointers on 43 attempts from deep. The Sixers have averaged 114.8 points, 40.1 rebounds, 25.2 assists, 7.6 steals, and 4.3 blocks over their last 10 games. They are 4-1 against the spread in their last five games against Brooklyn.

Writer’s Prediction

The Sixers win, 114-105.
