The Clippers finish off an eight game road swing Monday with a visit to the City of Brotherly Love. They have gone 3-4 so far on this trip to bring their record to 36-17 SU and 29-24 ATS. They are 16-12 on the road for the year. Over their last ten, they are 4-6 straight up and against the spread, while going 3-7 against the spread in their last 10 road games. The highlight of the road trip for the Clippers has to be their win yesterday vs. the Knicks. Even though Carmelo Anthony scored 42, the Clippers still dominated the Knicks on their home floor.
The Sixers are 22-27 SU and 23-26 ATS for the year. They are now 16-12 at home, having won four of their last five home games. Over their last 10 games, they are 6-4 straight up and 7-3 against the spread. They have benefited from a heavy home schedule, with nine of their last ten games coming in Philly. The Sixers have won 4 of their last 5 although those wins have come against teams that were near the bottom of the NBA, can they beat an upper echelon team in L.A. tonight? It will not look good for the 76ers if they don’t considering the hellish road schedule the Clippers are currently enduring.
The 76ers have actually won 6 of the last 9 games vs. the Clippers so does this give them the advantage over the Clips tonight at home? We will see tonight, but Clippers fans have to be encouraged by the stellar effort their team put forth against the Knicks yesterday at MSG. The only real downtime for this Clippers this season has been when Chris Paul was down with an injury. The offense sputtered a bit in his absence, but appears to be clicking now. This is however their 8th road game in a row and the 2nd of a back to back which is definitely something worth noting.
The Clippers are a 5 ½ point favorite. They are playing in back to back nights on the road, and their eighth road game in a row. Take the rested Sixers +5 ½ but first research sportsbook reviews.
