The Philadelphia 76ers travel to Golden State to take on the Warriors Friday night and Jimmy Boyd says that Golden State will cover the spread. Oddmakers from online sportsbook Bodog opened the line at Golden State -6, but the line has since dropped to Golden State –5.5.

Boyd writes: The 76ers struggle against up-tempo teams and that's really all you need to know here. Philly is 7-20 ATS versus up-tempo teams averaging 83 or more shots/game over the last 3 seasons. Golden State has won 4 straight games against the Sixers and is 7-3 ATS in its last 10 home games with Philly. The Warriors are a very good home team at 19-10 on the season while the 76ers have struggled on the road at just 10-18. Philly is only 9-22 ATS in a road game where the total is greater than or equal to 200 over the last 3 seasons. The 76ers can't sustain a high level of play for an entire game against up-tempo teams. Lay the points tonight.
