Bookie vs. Bettor: Heat vs. 76ers

Written by:

The most wagered on side this weekend will be the 76ers to kick off the NBA Playoffs.  They will host the Heat on Saturday night at 8 pm EST on ESPN. 

Philadelphia was coming in as the -6.5 home favorite in this game with a line that has moved down from -7.

Action had leveled out somewhat from earlier at some books so it is difficult to determine which side will come out on top here.  Just hours ago it appeared as if the books had a strong opinion on Miami in this Game 1 of the 2018 NBA Playoffs.

Miami has won the last two in this series.  Philadephia won the two previous games by less than the current spread.  Miami had won the game before that.

This one still has Miami Heat written all over it, covering by 7 points, especially with the line mostly holding at -6.5.
