Sixers vs Hawks

Is Joel Embiid going to suffer another lackluster second-half performance when the Philadelphia 76ers face the Atlanta Hawks in game 6 of their Eastern Conference semifinals matchup on Friday night?

For Atlanta Hawks, will sweet-shooting swingman Bogdan Bogdanovic light it up from the perimeter? Is blossoming superstar point guard ‘Ice Trae Young primed for another breakout performance in what has been a postseason full of them?

With Philadelphia looking to avoid an elimination I predicted before this series began, the NBA props odds surrounding this insanely huge Game Six showdown are value-packed in the BetUS online sportsbook.

Let’s check the latest NBA odds, stats, injury reports, and NBA lines for Sixers vs Hawks. We’ve plenty of NBA betting odds for you to consider.

Joel Embiid Total Points+Rebounds

  • Over 46½ Points+Rebounds -115
  • Under 46½ Points+Rebounds -115

Analysis: In nine playoff games, Embiis is averaging 28.4 points and 10.2 rebounds. The big man went off for 37 points and 13 rebounds in Game 5, 40 points and 13 boards in Game 2, and 39 points and nine boards in the series opener.

  • Pick: Under 46½ Points+Rebounds

Ben Simmons Total Points+Rebounds+Assists

  • Over 29½ Pts+Rebs+Assists -115
  • Under 29½ Pts+Rebs+Assists -115

Analysis: Simmons is averaging 13.2 points, 7.8 rebounds, and 8.8 assists per game, totaling 29.8 when combining the categories. The enigmatic point guard never showed up in Game 5, finishing with a pitiful eight points, nine assists, and four rebounds. With all eyes on him heading into Game Six, I like the versatile guard to easily top this Over/Under total. Still, the next time someone compares Ben Simmons to LA Lakers’ great Magic Johnson, I’m going to absolutely lose it.

  • Pick: Over 29½ Pts+Rebs+Assists

Bogdan Bogdanovic Total Points

  • Over 17½ Points -115
  • Under 17½ Points -115

Analysis: In 10 playoff games, Bogdanovic is averaging 15.4 points per game. The sweet-shooting Serbian has scored at least 18 points in five playoff contests, including Games 1, 3 and 4 of this series. Bogdanovic was limited to six points in Game 5, but I’m expecting the 29-year-old sniper to reach the 18-point plateau as Atlanta finishes off Philly.

  • Pick: Over 17½ Points

Fast Fact

Philadelphia is the only team to lose back-to-back 18-point leads in playoff games in the past 25 seasons.

Trae Young Total Points+Assists

    • Over 37½ Points+Assists -115
    • Under 37½ Points+Assists -115

Analysis: Young is averaging 29.4 points and 10.3 assists per game this postseason. Young has surpassed this combined figure five times this postseason, including each of the last two games in this series.

There’s 48 minutes on that clock and pretty much the conversation was we’ve been here before,” coach Nate McMillan said of the message he delivered to the Hawks in the locker room at halftime. “We’ve been here before, down big at the half. We need to come out with that energy, that urgency. We know what we need to do and we need to do it in a hurry.

As it stands right now, I don’t think the 76ers have anyone on their roster that can stop Young. With the Hawks playing at home and looking to close out the Sixers, I’m expecting the former Oklahoma star to come up big in Game 6. Play the Over.

  • Pick: Over 37½ Points+Assists
