Pick: Washington at Philadelphia UNDER 231.5 -110 (BetMGM), NBA Basketball, 7:10pm ET
It feels good to get back on track, especially with a no-sweat cash. Figures it happened with a pick that wasn’t highly upvoted. I hope you tailed anyway! Let’s see if we can start another streak.
These two teams opened the season with a total of 220. Since then, the Sixers have had just one game go over that number. And now the line for this game is 231? Philly remains #1 in the league in defensive efficiency and although Washington is among the league leaders in pace, they, like Philly, are outside the top 10 in effective field goal percentage. I get that Washington has gone over this number in 5 of 7 games this year, but which team do yo trust to control the play?
I do fear one scenario where this goes over, and that’s a Philly blowout. In the Sixers last game, 71 points were scored in a 4th quarter that featured Philly’s bench (and the game still went under). If you tail and it’s a blowout at halftime, consider taking the 2nd half over.
I’ll also be playing Philly to cover, Indiana to cover, Suns to cover and Boston to win outright.
Tail or fade, I wish you the best of luck!
