NBA picks – Brooklyn Nets vs Philadelphia 76ers – 31-01-2018

The 76ers need to push through the Eastern standings

There is so much potential for any team in the East to make a run towards the podium. Philadelphia 76ers may be one of the “dark horse” contenders regarding that aspect. The Brooklyn Nets vs Philadelphia 76ers game kicks off at 1:30 CET.

  • Without playing any great basketball recently and with a couple of important injured players (J.J. Reddick, Fultz, Bayless), the 76ers are somehow sitting on the last playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. It turns out that paying Joel Embiid that crazy contract in the summer was a good move. Their Center is finally playing up to his full potential (despite missing back-to-backs) and he will be an All-Star starter for team Curry.
  • Based on their latest outings, we cannot really rely on any of these two teams too heavily. The Brooklyn Nets have the big disadvantage of playing last night against their rivals in New York Knicks. They got beat up pretty badly and are in a bad spot coming back to Barclays Center, where they have a 10-14 home record. Philly has not been that consistent on the road, but with a victory tonight, they will get their away record to 0.500.
  • When Joel Embiid is playing, the Philadelphia 76ers are a totally different basketball team. He sat out (rest) against the Milwaukee Bucks but now is fully charged and ready to rumble with the Nets. He will have his way easily in the Paint and we could witness a monster night from him.

Prediction: Philadelphia 76ers -4.5, odds 1.60

I am one of those guys that just loves the combo between sports and numbers. I always look to get the most value and best edge out of a pick and constantly think outside the box. My area of betting mainly consists of NBA and NFL, but I also bet on football specials and Formula 1.
