The Brooklyn Nets could use a feel good victory here to rebound from a rough 3-6 record.

Caris LeVert is averaging 20 points and 4.4 assists while D'Angelo Russell is averaging 14.8 points and 5.2 assists.

The 76ers are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 vs. NBA Atlantic, 0-7 ATS in their last 7 road games and 4-10 ATS in their last 14 games overall. The Nets are 2-7 ATS in their last 9 home games, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 vs. Eastern Conference and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 vs. NBA Atlantic. The road team is 6-2 ATS in the last 8 meetings and the under is 12-4-2 in the last 18 meetings. The over is 6-2 in 76ers last 8 overall and the over is 4-1 in Nets last 5 overall.
The Philadelphia 76ers have yet to play their best basketball of the season and have really had issues on the road, but they're easily the better team over the Brooklyn Nets and probably should be heavier favorites than what they are currently. The Nets can be sneaky good at home, but they have had issues scoring this season at times and have lost seven of the last 10 meetings against the 76ers. I'll lay the small chalk with the road team.
