- The coefficients and forecast
Philadelphia last played in the playoffs in the 2011/2012 season. Then, at the end of the regular championship Sixers took 8th place in the East. And the last 5 years in Philadelphia without the playoffs. This season the team has real chances to get into the top 8. The calendar team is left simple and I think Philadelphia to end the regular season the top 8 will be. The team this season, stepped up decent Italian Marco Belinelli and Turk the Ersan Ilyasova. And they are players from the bench, but in every match accumulating 10 points. Very good support from the bench.
Joel Embiid great plays and is one of the contenders for the title of best rookie in the League.
Philadelphia’s excellent offensive line. Sixers are among the ten highest-scoring teams in the League, gaining on average 108 points per game. In addition to the above, Dario Saric, Robert Covington, Ben Simmons, JJ Reddick on a regular basis, demonstrate good performance.
Philadelphia has impressive statistics at home. 20 wins and 10 losses.
This is the second figure of the Eastern conference and third in the entire League. The last 11 home matches Philadelphia won. And beat including Eastern conference leader Toronto 117:11, teams from the leading group in the West, Washington and new Orleans.
Indiana in the last round beat away Boston Celtics 99:97. However, it is worth noting that a little bit of luck Indiana the fact that match because of the injury came out the second impact player of the Boston Jaylen brown, and in the course of the match due to a knee injury the game could not continue, the best player Boston Kiri Irving.
Victor Oladipo and Myles Turner made the biggest contribution in this victory. Oladipo scored 27 points, and Turner has made a double-double, scoring 19 points and making 10 rebounds. This is his 5th double-double in the last 10 matches. Indiana coach Nate McMillan after the match said that Turner throughout the season progresses.
Victor Oladipo is one of the best players in the League this season. Not by chance, he was honored to be invited to the all-star game in 2018. Also in the Pacers, it is worth noting Bogdan Bogdanovich. It is also a good season, showing consistently high performance.
Indiana’s last 6 matches have won 5 games.
4 Feb the teams met at bankers life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis and the Pacers won 100:92.
November 4 Philadelphia, in a home game won 121:110.
The coefficients and forecast
Philadelphia made the bookies favorite for this match.
I think this is acceptable. Indiana, though shows good results recently but home Philadelphia very menacing looks. Indiana will undoubtedly focus on protection. But Philadelphia has a depth attack is impressive. If the team Belinelli and Ilyasova comes off the bench, that says a lot. In General, I believe that Indiana during the match will not be able to safely play in their zone. And the attack Indiana is inferior to the attacking capabilities of Philadelphia.
Also believe that it is possible to pay attention to the rate ТМ210. Indiana will do its best to slow down the game and it’s unlikely the team will go over that total. Main bet on this match I would have chosen a head start with a little heart glasses in Philadelphia.
