Betting Trends to Know
The Nets have lost three consecutive games since winning Game 1. Since 2005, teams that have lost at least three straight games and are listed as an underdog in their next playoff game have gone 41-58-2 (41%) against the spread. — John Ewing
Thinking about making a play on the Nets moneyline at +280? Sure, they closed at +286 on the moneyline in Game 1, their lone win in the series. But they’re 1-13 straight-up as a 2-1 underdog since Christmas. — Evan Abrams
Joel Embiid has had a heck of an impact on this series, but it’s come mostly on the defensive side of the floor. — Abrams
