76ers vs. Warriors Prediction
Are the Warriors laying too many points to the 76ers tonight at 10:30PM ET?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Warriors are now 17-point home favorites versus the Sixers after opening as a 16.5-point favorite. As for the total, the number hit the board at 223 and has been bet down to 221.

The 76ers enter play tonight having lost seven of their last 10 games but they have been a fantastic play at the betting window, covering in seven of those 10 contests. They're also 41-25 against the number on the season and are 18-14 ATS on the road this year.
Golden State has split its last 10 games and is just 1-9 against the spread during that same span. The Warriors are 28-36 against the number on the season, including 14-15 against the spread at home this year.
OUR PREDICTION: This almost feels like a trap game given how many points oddsmakers are handing a Philadelphia team that has been great to bettors virtually all season. But the Warriors rested starters over the weekend in San Antonio and something tells me this game will get away from the Sixers, who are just 4-11 against the spread in their last 15 meetings with the Warriors in Oakland. The home team is also 20-7 against the spread in the last 27 meetings between these two teams and despite the big number, I like the Warriors to roll anyway.
