Jazz, 76ers: Two Road Favorites In A Do Or Die Scenario

  • The Philadelphia 76ers are -150 road favorites to force a Game 7 against the Atlanta Hawks.
  • The Utah Jazz are narrow betting favorites with -125 odds over the Los Angeles Clippers in Game 6.

ATLANTA – Friday’s slate of NBA games has a huge impact on the future of this year’s playoffs. Both the Philadelphia 76ers and Utah Jazz are the odds-on favorites despite facing elimination.

The Philadelphia 76ers will be looking for revenge after blowing Game 5 in an embarrassing fashion.

Meanwhile, the Atlanta Hawks will attempt to close out the series and build on the momentum gained from their come-from-behind win. Philly is the current favorite in the matchup.

76ers vs Hawks Moneyline Odds

  • Philadelphia 76ers -155
  • Atlanta Hawks +135

There’s decent value on either side of the bet, but bettors should be aware that the Hawks are 3-1 at home this postseason, potentially giving them the competitive edge as the underdog.

Hawks/76ers Game 6 Betting Props

For those who don’t love either team as a betting option, there are also prop bets that could peak one’s interest.

Atlanta Hawks Team Total Under 109.5 (-120)

The Hawks team total is set at 109.5 points with the Under being the narrow favorite.

Despite it being the chalk pick, it still has value. Atlanta has only gone north of this mark in three of their 10 playoff games.

Philadelphia 76ers Team Total Over 111.5 (-120)

Similar to the previous prop, this is the slight favorite but well worth the price. Eight of the 76ers 10 postseason games have seen the team total go Over this mark and almost hit in Game 5 despite going scoreless over the last 4:23 of the game.

Player props will be available closer to tip-off which could bring more betting value to the game in a couple of spots.

Be on the lookout for whenever those go live on sports betting sites.

Utah Jazz vs Los Angeles Clippers Game 6

The Utah Jazz will be, like the 76ers, road favorites to extend the series.

It’s tough to accurately handicap this game as it’s unconfirmed whether the Los Angeles Clippers star Kawhi Leonard will be available for the game.

Jazz vs Clippers Moneyline Odds

  • Utah Jazz -125
  • Los Angeles Clippers +105

The Clippers were able to win Game 5 without Leonard, but it’s going to be a tough result to replicate. Again, both sides of the line have generous odds and either side is well worth a play, but online gambling fans have other betting options as well.

Los Angeles Clippers Team Total Over 109.5 (-115)

The Clippers have scored at least 110 points in four straight games this series. The Jazz have also allowed more than 109 points in all but one game this postseason.

The matchup makes for a good possibility that Los Angeles can go past this mark even if Leonard is unavailable.
