Philadelphia 76ers at Los Angeles Clippers
76ers at Clippers: Philadelphia begins a four-game West Coast trip and the 76ers have been a totally different team on the road than at home.
Despite having the NBA’s best home record (25-2) Philly is a woeful 9-20 on the road (currently on a 1-11 ATS run). Only six teams have won fewer games away from home.
The Clippers are battling for the second Western seed, currently trailing Denver by just one game. They have the best home record in the West, 23-6.
The 76ers won their only prior meeting this season, 110-103 on February 11, as 1-point home chalk. Considered the main challengers to the Lakers in the West, the Clippers have gotten the hoped for production from their top offseason additions, Kawhi Leonard and Paul George. The duo has combined to average 48.5 points, 13.5 rebounds and 9.1 assists per game.
There will be a line adjustment for Philadelphia’s Ben Simmons who re-aggravated a back injury over the weekend that is expected to have him miss this road trip. CLIPPERS
