New York Knicks vs. Philadelphia 76ers: 2024 NBA Playoffs series odds for first-round matchup

Two East Coast rivals, the New York Knicks and Philadelphia 76ers, meet in the first round of the 2024 NBA Playoffs in the teams' first postseason meeting since 1989.

The teams had opposite trajectories into the playoffs: the Sixers started losing games and fell into the Play-In after reigning MVP Joel Embiid injured his knee midway through the regular season while a mid-to-late-season surge helped the Knicks snag the second seed.

This matchup will be something of a clash of styles, but the teams are evenly matched and that is reflected in the odds.
