Match Preview

Both Philadelphia and Brooklyn are in great shape. February 20 will be a meeting of the teams in the NBA regular season. Who will win? We bring to your attention the prediction for the NBA.

Brooklyn Nets

This season, the Nets are not lucky, because not only does Kevin Durant not play due to injury, he also dropped out of the clip Kyrie Irving. The team is afloat and it really deserves praise, but it seems that every time you have to go all-in to win.

Brooklyn had a good enough five previous games, because it lost only once and that Toronto was lucky 118-119, so you need to continue to act in the same vein. Nets are able to surprise, especially in fights against clear leaders.

The Kenny Atkinson guys are ready to fight, but the trip to Philadelphia is alarming, so there is a high probability that the team will play on defense.

Philadelphia 76ers

The Sixers got down to business seriously, at least until the break for sure. The team gained an incredible move thanks to three home victories, which once again proves the fact that the native walls help.

Philadelphia defeated Memphis 119-107, put Chicago in its place 118-111 and fought the Clippers 110-103. On the one hand, such a result was to be expected, since the Wells Fargo Center arena turned into a real fortress, though it is true that we must pay tribute to the players who gathered their forces on time.

Brett Brown’s wards aim to surpass last year’s achievement and, in principle, there is everything for this, because the roster is full of NBA stars, though stability is not always enough.

Betting Tips Statistic

  • In the last five personal games, Brooklyn has lost only more than 11 points only once.
  • During the regular season, Philadelphia lost only twice in the home arena.
  • On the account of Nets nine away victories.

Expert Pick and Prediction

We assume that Philadelphia will play the first number and will dominate the home arena, but Brooklyn is clearly not the opponent who will easily give up the victory, rather the opposite – Kenny Atkinson’s wards go ahead and are not afraid to take risks, so the guests have the strength to leave from defeat, but you should not count on victory.

Prediction: Philadelphia 76ers Will Win

Best Pick: Total Over 217
