Nets at Sixer Prediction ATS 11/22/22

The Philadelphia 76ers are a well rounded ball club that can hang despite the loss of multiple key players. Bookies LOVE situations like this and use the fear to inflate lines. I'd be more concerned if this was a road game. Give me the Sixers and a bottle of Pepto Bismol.
