Nets vs 76ers Predictions
April 13, 2021
Nets vs 76ers is an Eastern Conference tilt between two teams that are vying for the top seed in the East to close out the 2021 season.
The Nets are at the top of the playoff race in the Eastern Conference. They are looking to pass Philadelphia for that top seed. They will likely have home court advantage in any series not against the 76ers.
The 76ers are similarly the top team in the Eastern Conference. Their goal will be holding on to the top seed and home court advantage leading up to the NBA Finals. It would not be a massive shock if they fell the two seed. Even so, they are the favorites to win the regular season crown in the East.
Nets vs 76ers has only been played over two hundred times, with the split leaning moderately to the 76ers side. The recent seasons are similar, with the split easily leaning to the 76ers side. The 76ers have gotten the better of the Nets in both long-term and short-term history. With that said, history is not a strong indicator as the Nets roster is massively different this season than in past seasons. With no no real weight to put on historical advantage, we will look to this season. The 76ers are one of the league’s best teams, and are one of the few you can label to be perhaps better than the Nets.

Brooklyn Nets vs Philadelphia 76ers Betting Pick
Wednesday Night at 7:00PM EST at the Wells Fargo Center.
Why bet the 76ers?
✅ Nets absences. Make no mistake, laying 6.5 against the Nets would not be in the realm of possibility if they were at full strength. Given that James Harden remains out and Kyrie Irving is unlikely to play, the circumstances change drastically. Harden is certainly the biggest difference maker for the Nets. They have dropped two games since his hamstring issue first popped up at the end of March. They simply aren’t the dominant team that gelled together when he was present. It is too big an ask to think the Nets can compete with a full strength 76ers squad on the road in their current state.
✅ 76ers remain dominant at home. The 76ers carry the best home record in the Eastern Conference. They trail only the historic Jazz in terms of home excellence this season. They are one of the most efficient offensive teams in the league on thier home floor. This bodes well as the Nets are one of the least efficient defensive road teams. Both teams also play at one of the fastest paces in the league. With this being the case, it is difficult to see the Nets keeping scoring pace with the absences of both of thier scoring guards.

76ers vs Nets Predictions
76ers vs Nets has been played over two hundred times. There is a noticeable edge going to the 76ers side on the historical split. The more recent years have been quite similar to the historical split. However, the full historical split nor the recent history do not carry a great deal of weight in this matchup. The Nets roster changes are simply too great to put any real weight on history. Looking to the current season, the 76ers arguably carry a better top to bottom roster. History is just one indicator, but it is one piece of the puzzle to avoid for best predictions on 76ers vs Nets.

Nets vs 76ers Against the Spread Predictions
Nets vs 76ers against the spread predictions refer to whether the Nets or 76ers win or lose by the necessary points to cover the spread. The spread is a set number of points the favorite needs to win by or the underdog needs to lose by less than to be considered a wagering winner.
For a hypothetical line, we will use the 76ers -6.5. This means your wager on the 76ers would require them to win by more than six points to be considered a winner. Your wager on the Nets, at +6.5, would require them to either win the game outright or to lose by fewer than seven points to have your wager be considered a winner.

Philadelphia 76ers vs Brooklyn Nets Over/Under Betting
Philadelphia 76ers vs Brooklyn Nets Over/Under betting is a way of wagering on the contest without needing to pick the team that wins the game. Instead, these wagers are against a set betting total of combined points in the game. This set total is created by the bookmakers. For a hypothetical example, we will use a total set at 226.5 points. Over/Under wagers on this 76ers vs Nets contest would be betting over or under 226.5 combined points for the two teams.
There are many factors to be considered when diving into Over/Under wagering. These factors include pace (expected possessions per game), offensive efficiency and defensive efficiency.
Knowing which teams play faster and slower, and which teams play with a higher and lower level of efficiency at each end of the floor is a large edge when over/under wagering.

Brooklyn Nets vs Philadelphia 76ers Moneyline Predictions
Money Line wagering on NBA is a fun way to bet on one team or the other, while taking the point spread out of play on your wager.
Instead of laying or taking the points on the point spread, you can lay odds on the favorite or take odds on the underdog to simply win the game outright. If you are looking to wager on a game with our best Brooklyn Nets vs Philadelphia 76ers Money Line predictions, a Money Line wager is worth considering. This will allow you to avoid the point spread and simply pick a winner.
For an example of how a Money Line wager differs from an against the spread wager, we will use our 76ers -6.5 hypothetical example from above. Instead of the standard -110 odds on an against the spread bet, you can bet the 76ers to simply win outright while laying odds. You can bet the Nets to win the game outright while getting odds.
In our hypothetical, we would expect to have to lay about -280 on the 76ers and expect to get about +225 on the Nets.
The all-time series has been played to an edge on the 76ers side. Even still, history cannot help as a determining factor on a money line wager in this instance. However, history is just one piece of the puzzle and all other factors need to be considered. The current season’s trends and player availability siding with the Philadelphia 76ers is a helpful indicator. It is more important than history in terms of a betting selection.
