Brooklyn Nets Betting
The Nets are finally in their full strength after Kyrie Irving returned from a month-long layoff. In his first game off a shoulder injury, Irving recorded 21 points on 10-for-11 shooting with four rebounds and three assists to lead Brooklyn to a 108-86 win over the Atlanta Hawks.
Players to Watch: Kyrie Irving (27.9 PPG, 5.2 RPG, 6.8 APG)
Spencer Dinwiddie (22.1 PPG, 3.2 RPG, 6.4 APG)
Caris LeVert (16.0 PPG, 4.3 RPG, 3.5 APG)
Philadelphia 76ers Betting
The Sixers recorded two big wins vs. the Boston Celtics (109-98) and the Oklahoma City Thunder (120-113) before suffering two straight losses to the Dallas Mavericks (109-91) and the Indiana Pacers (101-95). Joel Embiid’s health has been a concerning issue for Philadelphia.
Players to Watch: Ben Simmons (14.9 PPG, 7.5 RPG and 8.5 APG)
Tobias Harris (19.4 PPG, 6.6 RPG and 3.3 APG)

Brooklyn Nets vs Philadelphia 76ers Betting Picks
Joel Embiid’s ongoing bout with a knee injury has really dampened all the hype surrounding the Sixers this season. They are supposed to compete for a championship this season with a beefed-up frontline, but with his health questionable going forward, online bookmakers and sports betting enthusiasts are beginning to doubt Philadelphia’s ability to go all the way this season. The Nets, on the other hand, are trying to keep themselves in the thick of the playoff race after barely surviving the period without Kyrie Irving.
Moneyline: The Sixers are a nice pick at -305. Despite an earlier loss to Brooklyn, Philadelphia is 6-4 in their last 10 games vs. the Nets and 18-2 on their home floor.
ATS: I like the Nets’ chance of covering the 7-point spread in a loss to Philadelphia. With Irving finally playing, Brooklyn now has the firepower to go toe-to-toe with the Embiid-less Sixers. I see them hanging tough down to the final minutes before losing by just five or fewer points.
TOTALs: The Nets and Sixers combined for 198 points in their first matchup. The Nets breached the 100-point mark in their last four games, but the Sixers failed to score past 100 in their last two games. I pick UNDER.
Score Prediction: 108 – 103 Sixers
