New York Knicks at Philadelphia 76ers Prediction 2/12/18
Buying low and selling high is a practice that we champion. Nothing typifies this scenario perhaps more than the different directions that these two teams are headed in at the moment, purveying an unusual situation for us to take advantage of. The Sixers are not commonly a team that we are accustomed to seeing spot this many points. In fact, recent history would dictate that the Sixers were on the receiving end of such lumber to entice action on them. The times have changed drastically. When you back the Sixers here, you are essentially paying not to support the Knicks who are in poor form with a terrible road record. What this creates is a potential overlay and undoubtedly inflated point spread. Given the potency of this rivalry, laying such a figure can be a dangerous activity. Take the points.
