Philadelphia 76ers vs New York Knicks Betting Picks
In another surprising twist, the Sixers will not enter the game as double-digit favorites over the lowly Knicks. Perhaps, their subpar performance vs. the Knicks a week ago coupled with their loss to the Raptors have influenced online bookmakers to adjust the spread at 7.5 points.
Moneyline: The Sixers are a dominant 3-0 SU against the Knicks in their last three meetings. While they are just a 4-6 SU team on the road, I expect Philadelphia to cruise to a double-digit win with a still motivated Embiid leading the way.
ATS: I have little doubts the Sixers will win this game by more than 8 points. The Knicks did their best to keep the score as close as possible in their first game. I promise you it won’t happen again this time around against the Sixers.
TOTALs: The total opened at 210 points. The Sixers have been thriving in low-scoring ballgames and that trend will continue in this ballgame.
Score Prediction: 103-91 Sixers
