The Nets looked like they had more inactive players than guys available Tuesday night, but it did not matter much, as they outlasted Toronto in overtime. It also does not seem to matter who is out when playing the 76ers, as Philadelphia comes off an embarrassing loss to the Heat on Wednesday night and Miami was without their top three scorers. Kevin Durant is on another planet right now, and Joel Embiid does not look like an MVP candidate, plus the 76ers are on the second night of a back-to-back. It is not a great scenario for the 76ers but great for sports bettors thanks to the FREE Awesemo OddsShopper NBA betting tool. Bettors can use the sorting tool to identify the best NBA player props by either expected ROI or expected win rate percentage.

76ers vs. Nets NBA Betting Picks + Odds Shopping

The easiest place to find the best bets in the NBA is on OddsShopper, the one-stop shop for value and where to place your wager. The best part is the tool is free and easy to use. Simply filter, sort the page and find the best return available across all books.

Nets Moneyline (+100, FanDuel)

The Nets are down a bunch of players, including starters James Harden, LaMarcus Aldridge and DeAndre’ Bembry, not to mention four more guys off the bench. The 76ers are coming off a bad loss to the Heat last night where they saw Tyrese Maxey and Tobias Harris have to pick up scoring slack for Embiid. Things just have not been the same for Philadelphia since the majority of their starters missed time with COVID, including Embiid. The Nets showed no signs of slowing down because nobody in the NBA can slow down Durant. Not even Matisse Thybulle can do enough to slow down Durant, who may score 50 on a tired 76ers team that is 24th in the NBA in scoring. Thanks to OddsShopper‘s ability to sort by the moneyline, Brooklyn still gets plus money.

Tyrese Maxey Under 18.5 Points (-114 FanDuel)

The lone consistent bright spot for this 76ers team is clearly Maxey, but he comes off a 42-minute night against the Heat. It is a big ask for Maxey to back up his 27-point performance with no day off, which is why OddsShopper has Maxey predicted for just 14.7 points. The bet has an expected win rate of 78% and an expected ROI of 48%. It is the best bet on the board, especially for this game. Feel free to play it individually and use Maxey’s predictions in a same-game parlay. The 76ers just are not scoring, and it is an easier buy that Embiid will have a better game than last night and Maxey will show some regression in both minutes and points.

Kevin Durant Under 9.5 Rebounds (-127 BetRivers)

Sorting by expected ROI largest to smallest on OddsShopper, this is the fourth-highest return in this game. It is backed by Awesemo’s projection of 7.7 rebounds for Durant, leaving just under two full rebounds as wiggle room. The expected ROI is great at 37% despite laying the -127 in juice, mainly because of the expected win rate percentage of 76%. Durant saw three straight games of under this number before exploding in overtime on Tuesday. There is enough recent history to combine with so many guys being out that would lean Durant to more of a scorer and less need to stay on the boards. As Nicolas Claxton takes over for Aldridge, there is a higher chance Claxton will take away boards from Durant and others.

Nicolas Claxton Over 8.5 Points (+105 DraftKings)

Speaking of Claxton … go over the point total. There should be a significant bump in minutes and scoring simply due to volume. Durant could drop 100 on the 76ers, and Brooklyn can still get 10 from their backup big man. The bet has a monster expected ROI of 38% mixed in with a 67% expected win rate chance of clearing the over. Keep an eye on OddsShopper, as it will show the best value on this play even if the best book changes. Do not get it twisted about Tuesday’s overtime win against the Raptors, as Claxton started but only played 26 minutes scoring 16 points on 10 shots. Claxton will be going up against a weaker front court with a tired Embiid and an exhausted Andre Drummond.

Long Shot of the Night: Nets Margin of Victory 11+ Points (+440 FanDuel)

OddsShopper has the ability to sort player props and match up their projections from Alex and team Awesemo. The general theme with player props for this game is the Nets are hitting more overs and the 76ers far more to the unders. The 76ers are exhausted, not just from last night’s game, but they look like they have played an entire season. The Nets are down seven guys and are looking for their fourth straight win. The homecourt advantage here comes in the form of the Nets eventually pulling away and winning by double-digit points. There is an increase of 245 points from the 1- to 10-point margin of victory (+195) to 11-plus at +440, so take advantage of Durant taking advantage of a 76ers team on fumes.
