Brooklyn Nets vs Philadelphia 76ers 4/14/2021 Betting Odds
Brooklyn Nets Betting
The Brooklyn Nets are currently tied for the best record in the NBA Eastern Conference standings with the Philadelphia 76ers at 37-17. This team does not own the advantage if the season ends if they remained tied with the Sixers and will be under them if that happens. Winning this game will help them get the advantage if a tiebreaker occurs. That may be a long shot since the Nets will not be playing with their big three and LaMarcus Aldridge. Kevin Durant is coming off from an injury and could be advised to rest while Kyrie Irving has not yet reported to the team since missing the last game for personal reasons.
