Guys! It happened! Something has happened that probably deserves its own national holiday!
The Brooklyn Nets are favored to win an NBA game!
Okay, okay…we’ll tone it down from here forward with apologies to Nets fans (all six of them…okay, last one). But in reality, this practically never happens.
The Nets are the worst team in the NBA as far as records are concerned, but there’s little doubt among fans and analysts that this is also the worst team as far as overall roster goes.
What kind of factors go into this squad becoming favorites? A home game against the Joel Embiid-less Philadelphia 76ers.
*All statistics, standings, records, rankings and trends are current as of this writing at 9:00 p.m. ET on Monday, March 27, 2017.
Philly’s season was probably lost long before Joel Embiid was declared out for the season and Ben Simmons’ rookie year was officially lost. But man, was this team exciting for a hot minute.
Following the turn of the calendar, the Sixers looked like they might actually have a shot at making the postseason.
Part of that, of course, has to do with the fact that the Eastern Conference is watered down compared to what’s taking place out West (although not as drastically as it used to be), but it had more to do with Philly becoming a legitimate NBA competitor.
In hindsight, that is a bummer considering the only thing it really did was ruin draft positioning.
But the good news out of all of this is that A) The Sixers started to learn how to win, B) Basketball fans everywhere started to recognize “The Process” as paying off, and C) They’re still bad enough to be fine as far as lottery odds are concerned.
In this contest, controlling the pace will be key. Brooklyn gets points by getting out in transition.
With that in mind, keeping control of the ball and not turning it over will be important.
That’s easier said than done for a young roster, but it will be important nonetheless.
Brooklyn has proven it can keep games close with its ability to score in transtion. That, however, does not mean this is a good offensive squad.
On the year, Brooklyn is 14th in points per game scored. The problem is that it’s also dead last in offensive efficiency.
Considering this group runs the fastest pace of any team in the league, it’s not surprising that it puts up points on a nightly basis despite being 30th in points per 100 possessions.
Against the Sixers, they should have no problem

Free Philadelphia 76ers vs. Brooklyn Nets NBA Prediction:
Both of these teams have been respectable against the spread. Oddsmakers don’t give them enough credit for keeping games close — although that’s understandable considering their putrid overall records.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Brooklyn ATS
If the spread were much higher, we’d be more inclined to choose Philly ATS. But the Nets should get this win at home, and it should be by at least a couple possessions.
