Who We Like: The 76ers won the first meeting this season by a count of 109-105 in Los Angeles back in November. Philadelphia has covered the last four meetings, but the Clippers covered the prvious six times and are 6-4 ATS in the last 10 meetings. The under has gone 6-4. Los Angeles has won three games in a row and five of six. The Clippers are 5-5 ATS in their last 10 games. The Sixers have won two in a row and three of their last four straight up. Philadelphia is 5-5 ATS in its last 10 games, while the under is 6-4.
There is a chance 76ers center Joel Embiid won't play tonight in the second half of a back-to-back after being questionable last night with an ankle sprain. He ultimately played through it and led Philly to a 100-82 home win over the Pelicans. The 76ers are nowhere close to the same team with Embiid out of the lineup, so if he is absent I definitely side with the Clippers. Even if he is available, Los Angeles looked impressive last night in a 108-95 victory at the Pistons and are in good form. Bet the visitors with confidence.
