Philadelphia 76ers vs. Brooklyn Nets Preview & Prediction (12/15/19)

The Philadelphia 76ers will be on the road Sunday taking the court against the Nets at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. Philadelphia will be looking for a sixth consecutive win after beating the New Orleans Pelicans 116-109 at home on Friday. The Nets will be looking to end a two-game skid after losing 102-110 against the Raptors in Toronto on Saturday night.

Tobias Harris was able to knock down 12 of 20 from the field to lead the Sixers with 31 points. Ben Simmons passed the ball for a team-high 11 assists while Joel Embiid wiped the glass with 11 rebounds. Philadelphia had four different players finish the game with at least 10 points.

The Brooklyn Nets will take the court Sunday sitting at 13-12 on the season following a 102-110 loss against the Raptors in Toronto on Saturday. Spencer Dinwiddie was able to connect on 8 of 18 from the field to lead the Nets with 24 points while passing the ball for a team-high eight assists. Deandre Jordan was able to haul in 13 rebounds.

Betting Prediction

The Philadelphia 76ers will take the court as four and a half point favorites with the total sitting at 217.5. I’m liking Philly to cover this spread on the road Sunday. They give up around nine fewer points a game, shoot a higher percentage from the field, and pass the ball for more assists. On top of all that, this will be the second tough game for the Nets in as many nights. I like the Sixers covering the four and a half points.

The 76ers are 5-1 ATS in their previous six games vs. Brooklyn.

The 76ers are 6-2 ATS in their previous eight games played on a Sunday.
