The Philadelphia 76ers meet the Atlanta Hawks in Game 2 after the road team prevailed in the opener 128-124. With Joel Embiid healthy, the 76ers will look to even the series while Trae Young and Hawks try to take a 2-0 lead back to Atlanta. Here’s how bettors should approach Game 2.
Pick ATS: Sixers -5.5
Atlanta jumped out to a 50-27 lead at one point in Game 1, but the 76ers closed the game 97-78. Philadelphia is the better team and should take care of business in Game 2.
Player Prop: Trae Young over 2.5 3-pointers (-139)
I am not sure why this line is consistently being set at 2.5, but Young is firing from deep with no regrets. He’s attempting 8.7 triples per game and has 11 attempts in the last two contests. The shooting percentage is not insane, but it’s not awful at 34.6 percent. Given the way Young is playing, he’s good to make at least three treys in Game 2.
