NBA Odds: Philadelphia 76ers (No. 1) vs Atlanta Hawks (No. 5) Game 4

Odds via BetOnline as of Monday, June 14

  • Series: PHI leads the series 2-1
  • Time: 7:30 p.m. EST
  • Moneyline: 76ers (-160) vs Hawks (+140)
  • Point Spread: 76ers: -3.5 (-110), Hawks: +3.5 (-110)
  • Total: 225.5 — Over (-110), Under (-110)

After losing Game 1 of the series, the 76ers have beaten the Hawks in the last two games. Joel Embiid led the way in the Game 3 127-111 victory by nearly having a triple-double, recording 27 points, 9 rebounds and 8 assists. Meanwhile, Furkan Korkmaz was an unlikely hero for Philadelphia, especially on defense. While Korkmaz had 14 points coming off of the bench, he also tallied 2 steals and led the team with a +24 plus/minus rating. The 76ers were also extremely consistent from the 3-point line in Game 3, shooting 47.6% (10-for-21) from beyond the arc. If Philadelphia wants to take the 3-1 lead and get one step closer to an NBA Championship, they’ll have to continue with what worked in Game 3.

Unlike the 76ers, the Hawks were not great from 3-point range in Game 3. While Atlanta has great shooters, only 26.1% of the team’s 3-points were successful. That’s just not good enough to win in the NBA postseason. It certainly doesn’t help when Danilo Gallinari and Kevin Huerter shoot a combined 1-for-9 from the 3-point line off the bench. The fact of the matter is that the Hawks need better production from their players in Game 4. Only four players hit double-digit totals in the last game, which won’t cut it against a team as good as the 76ers. The good news is that Trae Young and John Collins had 28 and 23 points respectively, so they may have to build off those performances to keep their team in the series.

Utah Jazz (No. 1) vs Los Angeles Clippers (No. 4) Game 4 Odds

Odds via BetOnline as of Monday, June 14

  • Series: UTAH leads the series 2-1
  • Time: 10:00 p.m. EST
  • Moneyline: Jazz (+175) vs Clippers (-205)
  • Point Spread: Jazz: +4.5 (-105), Clippers: -4.5 (-115)
  • Total: 223.5 — Over (-115), Under (-105)

Despite having the best record in the NBA regular season and being up 2-1 in the series, Utah is the underdog entering Monday’s game. Despite Donovan Mitchell’s 30-point effort, the Jazz lost Game 3, 132-106. If they want to bounce back tonight, they’re going to need some of their role players to play better. Jordan Clarkson, the 2020-21 NBA Sixth Man of the Year, shot an abysmal 5-for-16 from the field in Game 3 and was also a team-worst -24. Not to be outdone, Bojan Bogdanovic had .200/.200/1.000 shooting splits in just over 35 minutes played. If he’s going to be on the court that much, the Jazz need him to play a lot better than he has.

At the same time, the Clippers will look to carry over their momentum into Game 4. A lot of people thought they were finished when they went down 2-0, but Los Angeles is poised to make a comeback. If that’s the case, the team’s going to need Kawhi Leonard and Paul George to continue being at the top of their game. Leonard had a massive performance in Game 4, ending the night with 34 points/12 rebounds/5 assists while George had a 31/3/5 stat line. The Clippers also got some depth help as Nicolas Batum and Reggie Jackson had 17 points apiece in the victory. Considering how deep the Jazz can be when they’re at the top of their game, the Clippers’ bench players must continue playing a major role in the team’s success.
