Before making any Nets vs. Sixers picks, you NEED to check out the NBA predictions from the SportsLine Projection Model.
The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every NBA game 10,000 times and has returned almost $9,000 in profit on its top-rated NBA picks over the past three seasons. The model finished up almost $600 on its top-rated picks last season and enters the 2021-22 NBA season on a stunning 100-66 roll on top-rated NBA picks against the spread. Anyone following it has seen HUGE returns!
The model knows the Nets are highly prolific offensively. Kevin Durant and James Harden are two of the best offensive players in the NBA, each capable of exploding for 40 points on any night. Brooklyn led the NBA in offensive efficiency last season, and the Nets were also the best team in the league in both field-goal percentage and 2-point percentage. The Nets added to their depth in the offseason, and Brooklyn can deploy lineups that are virtually unstoppable, even against a strong Philadelphia defense.
The model also knows the 76ers are capable of big things on offense and defense. Philadelphia scored more than 1.12 points per possession last season, posting top-eight numbers in field goal shooting, offensive rebound rate, and free throw creation. Led by Joel Embiid (questionable, knee), Philadelphia is also elite defensively, finishing No. 2 in the NBA in defensive efficiency, No. 1 in steals and No. 2 in blocked shots in 2020-21. The 76ers will be tested by Brooklyn's firepower, but Philadelphia showed signs of intrigue with a dominant season-opening win over New Orleans.
Now, it has set its sights on Nets vs. 76ers. We can tell you the model is leaning over the total, and it also says one side of the spread hits in 60 percent of simulations! You ABSOLUTELY need to see it before locking in any NBA picks.
