76ers Meet Warriors in Potential Preview for NBA Playoffs Betting Odds

January 30th, 2019 NBA Basketball, Sportsbook

At the onset of the season Golden State was the far and away top pick to again beat NBA playoffs betting odds.  The Warriors boast four consecutive appearances in the Finals with three NBA championships in that span.  Golden State seeks a “Three-Peat” this upcoming spring.  But with those expectations and past results comes the perpetual problem of gambling overlays.  Gamblers often end up with painful losses on tickets in which the Warriors actually win the game.  Along the same lines has Philadelphia suffered a drop off in value.  Their status as a playoff team has caused too much attention.

76ers vs. Warriors TV Coverage: TNT

Philadelphia 76ers

Admittedly these are not the best of times for Philadelphia.  They have not had the recent look of a top value with the NBA playoff betting odds.  As an example, the 76ers have paid in just three of their last nine games.  Four of their last seven games have gone under the total.  In view of that Philly is 32-18 straight up and 23-27 vs. the odds with 29-21 over the total.  The 76ers rank an impressive fourth in the NBA for scoring offense but 22nd for points allowed.

Golden State Warriors

Balanced against that is a Golden State team providing its best value of the season.  The Warriors have lost just two of their last 10 games against the board.  Seven of their last nine games have gone over the total.  To begin with the champs are the highest scoring team in the NBA.  Defensively Golden State is a less impressive 21st in the NBA.  Overall the Warriors lead the Pacific Division with a record of 36-14 straight up.  Likewise, they are 23-26-1 against the spread with 28-22 over the total.

Stats to Consider

Philadelphia has not maintained good sportsbook online value as a road dog.  Consider that the Sixers have paid in just seven of their last 20 as away pups.  Four of their last five in that role have gone under the total.  In the same way Golden State has been a terrible betting value at ORACLE Arena.  Just three payouts in their last 13 laying points at home has drowned gamblers in red ink.  Five of their last eight in that situation have gone over the total.

Team vs. Team

Head to head Philadelphia has dominated this series against Golden State.  Six of the last seven between these teams finished with the 76ers getting paid.  And seven of the last ten between these teams stayed under the number.  And at ORACLE Arena the 76ers have left with the sack of cash in two of their last three visits.  Five of their last seven at Golden State went under the total.

Matchup to Watch

Not withstanding recent value, the Sixers have a big asset for the NBA playoffs betting odds with Joel Embiid.  The Sixers center is averaging 27.2 points and 13.3 rebounds per game.  As was previous noted the Sixers get the cash at Golden State.
