The mismanaged New York Knicks have been in terrible online sports betting slump. The Knicks are gushing red ink and are out of the playoff race. When Phil Jackson can’t save a franchise, it is as good as condemned. The Dolan ownership group has made this marquee team into a bad circus. The Philadelphia 76ers are in good form with a bright future. The Sixers are a great example of how to fix management issues and correct course. Philadelphia hosts New York on Monday.
The Philadelphia 76ers
The Philadelphia 76ers have an online sports betting record of 28-25 straight up and 30-22-1 against the spread. In their last five games the Sixers got the money four times. Under the total hit in four out of those five games. The 76ers have been an exception wagering value at the Wells Fargo Center. On their home court Philly has paid out in 17 out of 26 games. General manager Brian Colangelo took over the franchise in April of 2016 and immediately corrected course. The analytics geeks the ran the franchise into the ground were shown the door. And now this is a real basketball team with plenty of upside. The highly regarded Colangelo was NBA Executive of the Year in 2007. Center Joel Embiid is a major reason for the Sixers success. He will play in his first All Star Game on Sunday. Embiid leads the team with 23 points per game.
The New York Knicks
The New York Knicks are 23-33 straight up and 28-28 against the spread. In away games the Knicks are 12-17 vs. the number. New York has failed to get the money in four out of their last five games. Under the total has hit in seven out of their last eight games. An inconsistent offense that ranks 21st in the NBA remains the main culprit. General Manager Jeff Hornaeck and head coach Scott Perry face a daunting rebuild task. It is a near certainty that the Knicks will miss the playoffs for the fifth straight season.
