Game 3 between the Philadelphia 76ers and Washington Wizards will tip off Saturday night at 7 PM EST.

Philadelphia is currently up 2-0 on the series, winning the most recent game 120-95. The Wizards will look to get a win as the series heads to Washington for Game 3 and 4.

Let’s break down what’s happened in this series thus far and where the best betting value is ahead of the third game Saturday night.


Game 2 Recap: Dominating Win

The Sixers owned the Wizards from the opening frame en route to a monster 25-point win. It was their first cover of the series, with both teams now 1-1 ATS.

It was a well-rounded team win for Philadelphia. Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid each led the team in scoring with 22 points. Simmons tacked on nine rebounds, eight assists, two steals and a block in an all-around effort.

On the topic of blocks, the Sixers had a monster 14 in the game, led by Matisse Thybulle’s 5. Tobias Harris had 19 points and nine rebounds.

It was the Bradley Beal show on the Washington end. Beal poured in 33 points on 14 of 28 shooting. Russell Westbrook finished with 10 points and 11 assists, leaving early due to injury. His status will be worth monitoring ahead of Game 3.

It took extra innings, but we correctly predicted our Nationals at Yankees pick.

Game 1 Recap: Tobias’ Time

Harris had a monster game for Philly in Game 1, scoring 37 points. Joel Embiid chipped in 30 of his own. The game was near even at the half, with the Sixers pulling ahead in the second half to win 125-118.

Beal had an identical 33 points in the first game, with Westbrook adding 16 points and 14 assists.

Simmons had one of the more unusual stat lines you’ll see, finishing with 6 points, 15 rebounds and 15 assists.

Game 3 Betting Preview & Pick

On paper, the clear advantage is for Philadelphia, and bettors would be smart to watch them closely if you’re looking to win more NBA Playoff bets. The Sixers own an edge on both ends of the ball. Offensive and defensive ranks can be calculated a few different ways.

One preferred method is to average points per game, effective field goal percentage and efficiency.

When doing so, Philadelphia’s offense ranks 15th and their defense fourth overall. The Wizards keep pace on the offensive end, ranked 16th, but the disparity comes on the defensive end with Washington’s 22nd-ranked defense.

Beal and Westbrook have led an offense that is fifth in points in the paint. However, the Philly defense is well-equipped to slow down the attack, eighth in stopping inside scoring.

The best bet remains Philadelphia against the spread. They won Game 1 by seven points and Game 2 by 25. The spreads for both of those games has been around -8 at America’s Bookie, on the road, it may be a bit less.

Bet Philadelphia to go ahead 3-0 in the series as the far superior team. If you like betting totals, my favorite is the Sixers team total over against this porous defense.

Embiid is my favorite prop target, given the Washington defense particularly struggling to stop points in the paint.
