Nets vs 76ers Prediction & Pick
Game 1 between the Nets and 76ers went just as expected. Philadelphia earned an early lead, increased it ahead of halftime, then turned it up over the final two quarters to hand Brooklyn a 20-point defeat.
The talent difference on both sides was abundantly clear on Saturday, as Mikal Bridges was the only Nets player to even hit the 20-point threshold. Meanwhile, three of the Sixers' five starters hit at least 20 points, and that was without a normal showing from Tyrese Maxey (20.3 PPG in 2022-23).

Heading into Game 2, there is zero reason to expect anything different this time around. Philly's Joel Embiid-led offense is simply too loaded for Brooklyn to keep up with.
Final Score Prediction: 76ers: 118 | Nets: 105
Nets vs 76ers Best Bet
This 76ers offense is in a serious groove right now, posting 136, 134 and 121 points in its last three games. Doc Rivers' squad had no troubles lighting up the Nets during the 2022-23 campaign as well, recording at least 115 points in three of their four regular-season meetings.
With that success translating to Game 1, the over on Philly scoring more than 113.5 points is awfully attractive.
Bet: 76ers Alternative Total Points — Over 113.5 (+108)
