Nets vs. 76ers Betting Trends

Nets vs. 76ers Prediction & Pick

This game has lost some juice due to the fact that Kevin Durant is out with an MCL sprain for Brooklyn and Joel Embiid is listed as questionable with a foot issue for Philadelphia. Keep an eye on Embiid's status as being without the NBA's leading scorer (33.6 points per game) would brutal for the 76ers.

Philly has one huge advantage in this matchup and it comes on the boards. The Nets rank last in total rebounding percentage (47.4%) and log 47.4 rebounds per away game (No. 28 in NBA). The 76ers have posted an offensive rebounding percentage of 26.4% over its last three games (No. 9 in NBA).

Philadelphia is also 7-2 straight up in its last nine home games against Brooklyn, so take the 76ers.

Final Score Prediction: Nets: 107 | 76ers: 114

Nets vs. 76ers Best Bet

There's some value in backing the 76ers as a home favorite, but there's more value in backing the under. The under has cashed in four of the last five games between the 76ers and Nets. Those games combined for an average total of 220.8 points and featured a 115-106 final score back in November.

The total has also hit the under in seven of Brooklyn's last nine games overall and in four of its last five games against an Atlantic Division opponent. Both of these teams rank among the top seven in defensive efficiency, too. All signs point to a low-scoring, intense contest at the Wells Fargo Center.

Bet: Under 225.5 Points (-106)
