76ers vs Knicks Over/Under Pick: Under 209

These two teams have leaned on their defenses during the regular-season matchups. This includes combining for just 152 points on March 10 in a game where neither team topped 80.

Now, we’re heading into playoff basketball, which means more pressure, increased defensive intensity, and typically less foul calls. Bet online the under for this matchup.



76ers vs Knicks ATS Pick: Knicks (-2½)

The 76ers are trending in the right direction with Joel Embiid back in the lineup. Philly closed the regular season by going 8-2 in its last 10 games. The Knicks went 6-4 during this same stretch.


Yet, betting against the Knicks at Madison Square Garden in the opening round of a playoff series feels unwise. There also should be skepticism on Embiid’s conditioning and health after returning from injury. Give me the Knicks to cover at the sportsbook.



76ers vs Knicks Prop Bet Pick: Kyle Lowry Over 5.5 Points (-121)

We rode this prop bet during the Play-In Tournament, and we’re going to keep it going. Kyle Lowry is going to be more involved in the playoffs given his experience.

Take Lowry to go over 5.5 points when you are betting online.
