  • The Philadelphia 76ers haven’t been to the NBA playoffs since 2012, but the impressive Sixers are set to break that streak on Saturday when they welcome the Miami Heat to town for Game 1 of their first-round series. Home court advantage has been huge in this series, as visiting clubs are 1-6-1 ATS in the last eight matchups between the 76ers and Heat.

    Sportsbook opened the 76ers as 7-point home favorites with a total of 212.

    SHARK BITES
    • The Heat are 30-8 SU in their last 38 games against the 76ers.
    • The 76ers are 11-3 ATS in their last 14 games as the favorite.
    • The total has gone OVER in four of the 76ers' last five games.

    While the Sixers feature a youthful, talented roster, they’re short on playoff experience. Star center Joel Embiid will not play in Game 1 due to an orbital fracture in his eye. Philly ended the regular season on an absolute tear by winning 16 straight games, so there’s no doubt they’re rounding into form at the right time. The 76ers possessed the third-best defense and fourth-best net rating in the NBA this year.

    Miami is backing its first trip back to the postseason since the 2015-16 campaign and tied the Sixers in the regular season with two wins apiece. The Heat were a brutal road team in 2017-18, as Miami went 18-23 SU away from home. Many bettors will be fading Miami based off of this stat alone, and it’s completely understandable.

    When the Heat play on the road, high-scoring affairs are the story. The OVER is 9-3 in Miami’s past 12 away from home with an average combined score of 218.
