Philadelphia 76ers vs New York Knicks Game 5: BETTING TIPS, PREDICTION & BETTING ODDS

The 76ers had their hearts taken out in Game 4 in front of their own fans and now they’re on the brink of elimination heading into Madison Square Garden. In what was a physically demanding game, the 76ers looked like they ran out of juice towards the end failing to make a field goal in the last 5 minutes of play. Joel Embiid in particular shot just 36% from the field and 16% from downtown, head coach Nick Nurse should think twice before playing him 44 minutes in a game again. In elimination games Embiid is averaging just 22 points and 11.2 rebounds per game, with him at the helm the Sixers are just 3-6 SU in those games. This season alone Philly has just 1 victory in 4 visits to MSG, on Tuesday night they’ll be 4.5 point underdogs.

Jalen Brunson is arguably the best player of the postseason so far. He just broke the all-time Knicks record for points scored in a postseason game, finishing with 47 in the win on Sunday. It wasn’t just the scoring, Brunson also dished out 10 assists, so he played a part in 70 of the Knicks 97 points scored. The only question is how much energy does he have left after logging 44 minutes in that game? Closeout games are tough, the Knicks will have to get their reserves involved here. Aside from Miles McBride who had 13, nobody else made a field goal off the pine on Sunday. Bojan Bogdanovic twisted his ankle just seconds after coming into the game, a lack of depth could come back and haunt New York at some point.

New York Knicks Point Spread Prediction

Knicks -4.5 Point Spread is available at -110 odds

This has been a highly competitive series so far, but after watching that Game 4 over the weekend I just feel like the Knicks are on a different level. If Embiid were healthy it would have been a different story, I’m afraid this is the end of the road for Philadelphia. Knicks to cover.

Philadelphia 76ers vs New York Knicks Game 5 Total Points: Under 202.5

Under 202.5 Total Points is available at -110 odds

We didn’t see much quality offense in Game 4 with the both teams finishing under 100 points, the lowest total for a game in this series so far. If the Knicks want to close this thing out, they’ll have to stick to their gameplan of making life difficult for the 76ers on offense. This strategy worked to perfection in the first two games at MSG, in fact the under is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings between the two teams in this building. Relying on just one player to carry the whole offense is risky, if something were to happen to Brunson the Knicks would be in a lot of trouble here. So far in 4 games he’s averaging 33 points on 40% from the field and just under 26% from downtown. Neither the 76ers or the Knicks will wow you with their pace, this has been the 2nd slowest series of the 1st Round averaging just 90.8 possessions per game. I’m expecting a dog fight in Game 5, with their season on the line the Sixers will make sure to keep the tempo under control. I’ll go with the under.
