1.5 units on Philadelphia -2.5 (-110) (risk 1.5 to return 2.86) RESULT: win
1 unit on Game Total UNDER 221.5 -105 (risk 1 to return 1.95) RESULT: win
Philadelphia just experienced humiliation, and now it faces elimination after it blew a 26-point lead in Game 5 as Atlanta came from behind to win 109-106. The good news for the 76ers is they are 11-5-1 ATS their past 17 games as road favorites, and they bounced back with two wins after losing Game 1 of this series. If an NBA team gets embarrassed either by blowing a big lead or getting blown out the previous game, it more than likely will bounce back with an epic performance the following game, especially in a must-win situation. The last two games have gone UNDER by an average of 16 points, and the 76ers will surely be clamping down defensively from the very start. The UNDER is 15-7 in Philly's past 22 road games, and the Sixers are 17-5 UNDER following an ATS loss. Play the 76ers and the UNDER.
