Pick, Prediction, & Preview:
Los Angeles Clippers vs Philadelphia 76ers
The 76ers will welcome the Clippers to Wells Fargo Center as they will take on the Clippers for the first time this season. The 76ers are coming off a lost against the Raptors while the Clippers lost against the Thunder in their last name. Game tips off at 7:00 PM ET.
Los Angeles Clippers 's Latest Performance :
The Clippers are coming off a loss against the Thunder as they could not find an answer for Westbrook. They were outscored by 39-10 in the 3rd quarter at one point surrendering a 20-0 run. They had a 13-point lead at halftime, were shooting the ball well, and had kept the Thunder out of sync on offense. The victory was by no means assured, but there was every indication that the Clippers would be competitive down the stretch yet again. Everything went south for the Clippers squad in the second half. Their offense became stagnant and there was no more ball movement and defense wise they must do a better job defending in transition. Danilo Gallinari scored 27 points in a losing effort but it was great to see him finding his shot once Harris and Danilo get it going in the same game the Clippers will be very hard to beat. I expect them to have a good game against the 76ers.
Philadelphia 76ers's Latest Performance :
The 76ers will look to bounce back after a loss against the Raptors, the Raptors had Kawhi back in their lineup so it was going to be a tough game nevertheless. The 76ers are off to a rough start they are 4-4 to start off the year. Ben Simmons had a double-double but a triple-double with turnovers he posted a stat line of 11 points, 10 assists and 11 turnovers with 8 rebounds. It was a real challenge for Ben going up against the defense of the Raptors. Markelle Fultz was quiet on Tuesday with eight points, four rebounds. Robert Covington was the only bright spot for the Philly after putting up 15 points. Playing at home will allow the team to regroup after a tough game in Toronto. I expect the offense should return to normal because the Clippers defense isn’t as good as the Raptors, however, the 76ers must prepare better when they the Raptors next time.
How Los Angeles Clippers & Philadelphia 76ers Matchup.
Vegas Odds, Offshore Odds, & Odds ATS:
76ers are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 home games vs. a team with a road winning % of less than .400.
Clippers are 17-8 ATS in their last 25 vs. Eastern Conference.
Against The Spread Selection: Philadelphia 76ers -4.5
My reason for the pick :
The 76ers should be able to take care of the Clippers in this game Joel Emiid will have his way in the post against the Clippers defender after putting up 31 points in a losing effort against Toronto. The Clippers don’t have a real big man so look for Joel to abuse the mismatch every chance he gets. The Clippers will play a good game but will have no answer for Joel. When two teams that are similar to each other play it is normally the team with an All-Star that would come out on top.
