Philadelphia 76ers Betting
The Sixers have been bulldozing their first two opponents with their tall, bulky starting five. In their first road game against the Detroit Pistons, Tobias Harris recorded 29 points and 7 rebounds against his former team, while Al Horford filled in the stats sheet with 23 points, 9 rebounds, and 5 assists. Ben Simmons continued his fine play as he dropped 13 points and 10 dimes.
Players to Watch: Ben Simmons (18.5 PPG, 6.5 RPG, and 9.5 APG), Joel Embiid (15.0 PPG and 13.0 RPG), and Tobias Harris (22.0 PPG and 11.0 RPG)
Atlanta Hawks Betting
The Hawks are by far the biggest surprise of the opening week after registering victories against two postseason teams from last season. Sophomore guard Trae Young has been at the forefront of the Hawks run-and-gun attack, averaging 38.5 PPG on 58.7% FG and 55.0% 3PT.
Players to Watch: Trae Young (38.5 PPG, 7.0 RPG, and 9.0 APG), John Collins (13.5 PPG and 11.0 APG), and Jabari Parker (14.0 PPG and 2.5 RPG)

Philadelphia 76ers vs Atlanta Hawks Betting Picks
Starts dropping bet on sports and other fixtures at BetNow to earn a massive payout. The Sixers should be the hands-down favorite given their lofty reputation as one of the top-2 teams in the Eastern Conference. On the other hand, I wouldn’t count out this young and exciting Hawks team who is looking dangerous in each game they play.
Moneyline: The Sixers are -204 favorite over the +156 underdogs Hawks. Expect Philadelphia to assert their height and size advantage in this game. Atlanta, on the other hand, will try to counter with finesse and of course another big game from resident star Trae Young
ATS: The +4 Hawks are an impressive 7-3 ATS against the mighty Sixers in the last 10-to-head meeting, showing that they are good when playing Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid and company. I expect Atlanta to go toe-to-toe with the Sixers down to the very last second but fall by two points.
TOTALs: The O/U total for this game is set at 227 points. Philadelphia is averaging 107.00 points per game in their first two games while Atlanta is scoring 117.00 per contest. The Hawks have been explosive offensively, though they haven’t played an elite-level defense yet. The Sixers should provide a stern test on the defensive end, but I still think they are going to score over 100 points. Still, this game will fall short of the O/U total, knowing the Sixers thrive in the low-scoring ballgame.
Score Prediction: 108-105 Sixers
