2 units on Philadelphia +150 (moneyline) (risk 2 to return 2)  RESULT: win

The Philadelphia 76ers stole game one from Orlando, after Orlando seemed to have them put away. That brings them home where they can now claim home-court advantage for what has become a best of five series, with potentially three games being played in Philly. Orlando is now just 1-7 ATS in their last eight games! The Sixers have had an impressive track record at home when listed as a short dog of up to +4.5, as they are now 10-3 ATS in their last 13 games in that situation. They have also been a top defensive team at home as only four of their last 29 home games have gone over 200 points scored. In the first two played in Orlando, the first-half total never got over the first half total posted for this one. The Sixers are 26-13 UNDER in the first half at home the past three seasons coming off a road loss. I look for Philly to come out with a defensive resolve early, and I like them to cover game three and will back them. I will also take the first-half UNDER in this one.
