Brooklyn Nets vs Philadelphia 76ers 2/6/2021 Betting Odds
Brooklyn Nets Betting
The Brooklyn Nets have had a lot of criticisms recently and they will be coming in this game without Kevin Durant who just contracted COVID-19. They will now rely on James Harden and Kyrie Irving to carry most of the scoring load but their depth has been very questionable since the blockbuster trade. This team needs Joe Harris to come up with a better scoring performance while Bruce Brown will be taking in starter minutes. Jeff Green has been playing good but his last game was very much subpar just doing 33% from the field. Landry Shamet has also stepped up from the bench.
Players to watch: K. Durant PF 18 GP 17 GS 35.9 MIN 29.5 PTS 0.4 OR 7.1 DR 7.4 REB 5.2 AST 0.8 STL 1.4 BLK 3.5 TO 2.4 PF 1.5 AST/TO 25.88 PER
K. Irving PG 16 GP 16 GS 35.8 MIN 27.5 PTS 0.8 OR 4 DR 4.8 REB 5.7 AST 0.9 STL 0.8 BLK 2.6 TO 2.9 PF 2.2 AST/TO 24.29 PER
J. Harden SG * 10 GP 10 GS 40.2 MIN 23.4 PTS 0.7 OR 7.4 DR 8.1 REB 12 AST 1.2 STL 0.5 BLK 4.1 TO 2.8 PF 2.9 AST/TO 22.99 PER.
Philadelphia 76ers Betting
The Philadelphia 76ers are just proving that last year was a fluke and they seemed to have figured out their winning formula under the leadership of Doc Rivers. Joel Embiid has continued to increase his chances to join the MVP conversation and Ben Simmons has his usual all around contributions across the board. Shake Milton has been stepping up as well from the bench while Tobias Harris has become the team’s solid third option. Opposing teams have to deal with Seth Curry who has been providing the team their needed spacing with his outside shooting.
Players to Watch: J. Embiid C 18 GP 18 GS 31.9 MIN 29.1 PTS 1.7 OR 9.1 DR 10.8 REB 2.7 AST 1.2 STL 1.3 BLK 3.3 TO 2.4 PF 0.8 AST/TO 31.46 PER
T. Harris PF 20 GP 20 GS 33.8 MIN 20.2 PTS 1.2 OR 6 DR 7.2 REB 2.9 AST 0.8 STL 0.9 BLK 2.4 TO 2.1 PF 1.2 AST/TO 18.46 PER
S. Milton SG 20 GP 1 GS 24.4 MIN 14.1 PTS 0.5 OR 1.3 DR 1.8 REB 3.1 AST 0.8 STL 0.2 BLK 1.6 TO 2.3 PF 2 AST/TO 15.71 PER.
