BETTING TRENDS

Brooklyn are 4-2 ATS in their last 6 games against Philadelphia.

The total has gone OVER in 11 of Brooklyn's last 14 games.

Philadelphia are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games.

Philadelphia are 5-1 SU in their last 6 games at home.

Prediction

The Nets inmediately turned things on with the return of Kevin Durant they almost beat the Celtics and just defeated the Hornets scoring 132 points. They'll be facing their old teammate Harden who has a perfect record with the Sixers so far. Expect a lot of points on this game as the Nets defense are allowing 116.2 ppg in their last 10 games but the offense is a lot better. Over is cashing big time lately in the Nets games, take the over.
