76ers-Lakers: The Awful vs The Atrocious

Fresh off announcing his retirement, Kobe Bryant might steal the headlines tonight in his return to Philadelphia, but the real story tonight is how bad the Lakers and 76ers have been this season. As of Tuesday afternoon, the 76ers moved to 1.5 favorites, which is the first time they've been favorites this season. This is just the ninth time since the start of the 2013-14 season that they've been a favorite.

Tonight’s game will be Philly’s best shot to pick up their first win of the season. The Lakers have been awful on the road, picking up just one SU win in nine road games.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone UNDER in the Lakers' last six games playing on one day's rest.
  • The Lakers are 7-1 SU and ATS in their last eight games on the road vs the 76ers.
  • The 76ers are 0-12 SU and 2-10 ATS in their last 12 games at home.

As far as covering spread is concerned, the Sixers have been average, while the Lakers have been, you guessed it, awful. While Philly is 10-8 ATS, they’re just 2-5 ATS at home. The Lakers, meanwhile, are 5-11 ATS and an ugly 1-5 ATS in their past six road games.

One positive for Sixers backers (if there’s any left) is that the team has gone 5-0 ATS in their last five games. This is likely the result of being on the underdog side of countless double-digit spreads.

Looking at tonight’s total which opened at 197.5, both teams are trending UNDER. They’ve combined to go UNDER in 13 of their last 17 games.
