Home is Where the Wins Are for 76ers

Los Angeles Clippers vs Philadelphia 76ers Betting Preview

Few teams take better advantage of their home digs than the Philadelphia 76ers – and they’ll need to keep that going if they want to avoid spending the majority of their postseason on the road. The Sixers come into Tuesday’s encounter with the Los Angeles Clippers having won 10 straight games at Wells Fargo Center, but they remain stuck in fifth spot in the Eastern Conference.

Opening Odds Analysis

It’s the old fliperoo! The 76ers opened as 1-point favorites, but the line has since shifted in the Clippers’ favor (-1) in most spots. The total, on the other hand, has held firm at 225.5.

Los Angeles News & Notes

Any time the Clippers can get a little extra rest, they become a lot more dangerous – and that’s just what happened last time out, as they built a 45-point lead before handing things to the reserves in a 133-91 thrashing of the host Cleveland Cavaliers. Even more impressively: Los Angeles put the boots to the Cavs without Kawhi Leonard, who sat out with a knee injury.

And the Clippers are a little deeper as they look to end their seven-game losing skid at Wells Fargo Center. Los Angeles acquired Marcus Morris at last week’s trade deadline to shore up their frontcourt; he had 10 points in 22 minutes in his Clippers debut last time out but averages 19.4 ppg on the season and should provide additional scoring punch, especially when Kawhi sits.

Philadelphia News & Notes

The 76ers make headlines no matter how they’re playing and the rumor mill is red-hot even with the 2020 trade deadline in the rear-view. Multiple reports suggest that rival general managers are preparing for the possibility that the Sixers will make center Joel Embiid available for trade – this after he and Jimmy Butler engaged in a cryptic social media exchange earlier this week.

Remaining focused on the court will be paramount for Philadelphia, which sits 2.5 games back of Miami for fourth spot in the Eastern Conference and is rapidly running out of time to finish any higher than that. That’s a big problem for the Sixers, who are a dismal 9-19 away from Philadelphia, tied for the fewest road wins among teams currently in a playoff position.

Betting Pick: Philadelphia SU

We’re not about to bet against the Sixers at home, particularly as an underdog. Take the SU play over the ATS option for a little extra profit.
