The Oklahoma City Thunder head to Philly on Saturday to face off against the Sixers.
The Philadelphia 76ers are sitting at 14-29 this season, and on their home floor, the Sixers are just 8-13 this year. Philly has a decent offense, putting up 101.3 points per game, but defensively this Sixers team is horrible, allowing nearly 110 points per outing this season. The Sixers have dropped four out of their last five games heading into this meeting with the Thunder on Saturday, with their last outing resulting in a loss to the Raptors in Philly on Friday night.

The Oklahoma City Thunder head to Philly on Saturday owning first place in the Northwest division over the Trail Blazers. The Thunder are 34-10 on the season, and have played very well on the road, going 15-7 this season away from OKC. The Thunder are on a roll right now, winning six straight heading into this meeting with eh Sixers, with their latest victory coming on Friday against Boston at the Garden. This will be the third straight road game for the Thunder in the last four days.
The Thunder are 5-0 against the spread in their last five following an outright, and a win against the spread. OKC is also 6-0 against the spread in their last six games overall, and when playing on no rest, the Thunder are 9-2 against the spread in their last 11.
The Sixers are 2-10 against the spread in their last 12 home games, and the Sixers are 7-2 against the spread in their last nine games overall.
I'm going with the over here on Saturday. Both teams can put up points in bunches, and if the Sixers are going to keep this close they will need to put up plenty as OKC is on a tear right now.
