Philadelphia 76ers at Washington Wizards Game 4 Betting Preview

The New York Knicks are at the Philadelphia 76ers in Game 6 of the best of 7 series on Thursday. This is the first round of the NBA Playoffs, and the winner will move on to take on the winner of the Milwaukee Bucks and Indiana Pacers series. They are also in Game 6 on Thursday night.

The New York Knicks had a chance to wrap up the series at home on Tuesday. They could not get it done, and now need a win in one of their next two to avoid a 3-1 collapse. The Knicks are the second seed in the Eastern Conference, as they finished with a 50-32 record. The Knicks won their final five regular season games.

For the 76ers, they finished with the 7 seed in the East, but are a dangerous team when healthy. Philadelphia went 47-35 in the regular season, and won their final 8 games. The 76ers beat the Heat in the play-in game to garner the 7 seed, and avoid Boston in the first round. Philadelphia won Game 5 by a score of 112-106 in overtime.

76ers Force Game 7

The Philadelphia 76ers have momentum right now. The Knicks are down a little after falling at home in Game 5. We like the 76ers to come back with another big outing and win this game. That would set up a massive Game 7 at the Garden this weekend.

Our final bet for this game is the Philadelphia 76ers -3.5 over the New York Knicks. Enjoy the game and best of luck with all your NBA Betting!
