This series is set to be a great one, but bettors are all over the Brooklyn Nets to win at -200. As you can see, a whopping 77% of the total betting handle is on the Nets, which means heavy numbers are coming in on Brooklyn at -200. The Nets are favorites to win the NBA Finals, and this may be their toughest series.

 

Hawks vs. Sixers Public Betting Trends

The Philadelphia 76ers will continue their journey towards the NBA Finals with a second round matchup against the Atlanta Hawks. Will they have to do it against Trae Young and company without MVP candidate Joel Embiid? He is day-to-day with a slight meniscus tear in his knee. Here is how the public is betting on the series, currently.

Despite potentially missing Embiid for some time, the Sixers are still -200 favorites to win the series against the Hawks. Bettors are not as confident though, as only 55% of the handle and 56% of total bets are being wagered are on Philadelphia. Keep an eye on the series price as Embiid’s status changes. This is a great series to use the new DraftKings $1 to $100 promotion on.

 

Nuggets vs. Suns Public Betting Trends

The third series that is settled for the second round is the Western Conference battle between the Denver Nuggets and the Phoenix Suns. The Suns “upset” the Lakers in round one despite being a higher seed, and the Nuggets cruised against the Blazers without Jamal Murray. Here is a look at the way the betting public is wagering on the series odds at DraftKings.

The Suns and Nuggets start early next week, and as you can tell bettors love the Nuggets at +175 to win the series. 82% of the total money on this wager has gone towards the Nuggets moneyline, which indicates some heavy action on Nikola Jokic and Denver to take down Devin Booker and the Suns.
