Tips For Betting On Hornets 76ers – Hornets Take On Rested Sixers This Tuesday

Posted by Craig Parsons on 1/13/2013 6:14:47 PM

When the New Orleans Hornets play the Philadelphia 76ers this Tuesday night, a key question will concern the ability of the Hornets to translate good play on their home court to the road.

Why New Orleans Will Win

The high-stakes poker games that take place on a nightly basis in the NBA require the ability to play with almost robot-like consistency. Professional athletes train all their lives to generate regularity of performance, to be able to handle repetitions and concepts in a dependable manner. Experienced coaches and broadcasters will tell you that "basketball is basketball," meaning that the game is the same no matter what gymnasium or arena in which it is played. A team should be able to play good defense in any city against any opponent. A team should be able to retain good habits once they are formed. A team should be able to manifest the same characteristics once it learns how to put them on display.

This is the basic advantage the Hornets will bring into this game. They have learned how to play defense in recent weeks, holding the potent San Antonio Spurs to 88 points and then clamping down on the Houston Rockets by limiting them to just 79 points. New Orleans might be playing on the road in this game, whereas it was on a long homestand last week, but the Hornets' improvements on defense should give them a great deal of leverage against a Philadelphia squad that is not reaching its potential, chiefly because of the continuing absence of big man Andrew Bynum.

Why Philadelphia Will Win

People in the football betting world who don't pay all that much attention to NBA basketball could probably still tell you that a lot of bad teams are bad because they can't play well on the road after doing good things at home. New Orleans has enjoyed a really good homestand this past week, but when it goes to the Northeast, things are likely to change.

The Hornets should run into difficulty on Sunday afternoon when they face the New York Knicks. A decisive loss in that game could very easily erode the Hornets' confidence and take away the momentum New Orleans has built in recent days. Moreover, it has to be said that Philadelphia, after playing a Saturday night game at home against Houston, will have two full days off without any travel. The Sixers will be extremely well rested, and that counts for a lot in the world of professional basketball. Philadelphia should deliver a strong performance in this specific situation.

Who Will Win

This is going to be a defense-dominated game, but will New Orleans be able to match Philadelphia's energy level for 48 minutes? It's doubtful that it will be able to do so. Take the Sixers here.
