Sixers vs. Nets odds, line: Picks, predictions for 2019 NBA Playoffs Game 2 from model on 76-59 roll


The Philadelphia 76ers added Jimmy Butler and Tobias Harris this season to make a run at an NBA title, but the Brooklyn Nets proved Saturday they can't look past them.


3-seed Philadelphia is favored by 8.5 in the latest Nets vs. Sixers odds after the line opened at -7.5, with the over-under for total points scored set at 226.


Brooklyn has won four in a row and covered the spread in nine of its last 12, but Philadelphia will likely have a healthier Joel Embiid (knee) and a motivated lineup after the Game 1 embarrassment.


Embiid, who's questionable for Monday, owned the Nets during the regular season, scoring at least 33 points in three of the four games and recording at least 12 rebounds in all four.


But just because Philadelphia is the higher seed at home doesn't mean it'll cover the Sixers vs. Nets spread on Monday in the NBA Playoffs 2019.


Brooklyn held the Sixers to 3-of-25 shooting from beyond the arc in Game 1, and Russell missed 12 of his first 15 shots, but came up huge in the end and finished with 26 points.
