Philadelphia 76ers at Brooklyn Nets BettingOverview:

Philadelphia 76ers

The 76ers come into this contest on a high note after defeating the Detroit Pistons at home by a margin of ten points despite being just a 7.5-point favorite. The victory extends Philadelphia’s winning streak to two games and Philly’s third cover in their last four outings.

Brooklyn Nets

The Nets enter off their fourth loss in the last five games, falling most recently at home on Friday to the visiting Houston Rockets by a score of 119-111. The defeat saw Brooklyn fail to cover in its last three contests overall.

Reasons To Avoid Philadelphia

The Sixers have been quite the busy bees as of late as this will be their third game in four nights. In many instances, pundits will write this one off as a scheduled loss for Philadelphia given the wear and tear that such a testing schedule can offer. Philadelphia will be far less fresh compared to their counterparts who have not left New York City in eight days. When you toss in the fact that Brooklyn owns a deeper bench of veterans, this can be yet another reason to fade Philadelphia here.

Reasons To Back Brooklyn

Division rivalry games such as these have many ebbs and flows. The Nets are going to be hungry as they head into this contest as they will undoubtedly want to end Philadelphia's bullying of them as of late. However, Brooklyn's defense has become far more formidable compared to last season, and they own the advantage in that department against the Sixers. When you toss in points to the hosts, there is tremendous equity in backing the curators of this affair.

Philadelphia 76ers at Brooklyn Nets Prediction 11/4/18

The set-up for this game has upset written all over it, but we will go ahead and play this one conservative by taking the points. The fact remains that the location of this contest will play a significant role in the outcome of this contest. Philly is winless on the road while Brooklyn plays .500 ball at home. Brooklyn has already hosted Golden State and Houston (the two best teams in the West) here as two of their four home contests. In both fixtures, the Nets were quite competitive, and as a result, you can be assured that they will be looking to get over the proverbial hump and make a statement here with a win against one of the better teams in their division and conference.
