Here’s how bettors are approaching the last game of the second round of the NBA playoffs.

The Philadelphia 76ers and Atlanta Hawks wrap up the second round of the 2021 NBA playoffs with Game 7 Sunday evening. The winner will meet the Milwaukee Bucks in the Eastern conference finals. The 76ers haven’t made the conference finals since 2000-01 while the Hawks made the round in 2014-15.

Here’s a look at how the public feels Game 7 will play out.

While most bettors feel the 76ers will win the game given the moneyline splits, a majority of bets are taking the Hawks to cover the spread at 6.5. Given how close the last three games in this series have been, there’s a strong chance Game 7 will also be tight. Most of the money in this category is coming in on the Sixers though.

A large majority of bets are backing the over at 215.5 despite it not hitting in the last three games. Most of the money on the over/under is actually taking the under, but only by three percent. It seems the bettors backing Philly to cover and the under are putting more money on the line, but volume is taking the Hawks and the over to hit.
