The Philadelphia 76ers have at least temporarily restored confidence in the fanbase by crushing the Brooklyn Nets in Game 2 of their opening round playoff series, 145-123, on Monday to even the series at 1-1. Was able to get the latest odds for the game online. When the numbers for Game 3 first opened, Philly was a three-point favorite. Based on
the regular-season, it’s somewhat surprising to see the Sixers as a significant road favorite. They were under .500 on the road (20-21) while the Nets were 23-18 in Brooklyn. But the Sixers were 1-1 against the Nets at the Barclays Center and, crucially, will head into Game 3 well rested. Their domination in Game 2 allowed coach Brett Brown to rest his starters in the fourth quarter. They’ve also had two full days off since Game 2. That’s massive for this team, which has a starting five as good as any in the East, but very little depth.
