(NBA) Miami vs. Philadelphia, 04/17/2024 7:00 PM, Score: 104 - 105
Total: 207.50 | -115.00 Over
Result: Win
10* OVER Heat/76ers (PLAY-IN TOY)

Neither team thought they'd be in this position, but here we are. The winner will face the Knicks in the first round, while the loser will play the winner of the Hawks/Bulls. Philly is a different team with Joel Embiid in the line-up, as evidenced by the 76ers eight-game win streak to end the season. Miami got into the playoffs last year via the Play In Tournament. Plenty of experience on both sides. Plenty of familiarity between these teams. Embiid averaged 30.4 poitns, 9.2 boards, 5.2 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.2 blocks once he returned and Philly hasn't lost a game since he has. Not like Miami will be rolling over here though, as the Heat come in healthy as well, with Bam Adebayo ready to try his best to keep up with Embiid. If Philly plays to a slower pace, it plays into Miami's strengths. With that in mind, we're expecting the home side to push the pace from start to finish and in our opinion, everything does indeed point to the OVER as the correct call!
