The Philadelphia 76ers pay a visit to the Golden State Warriors at the Chase Center on Tuesday night.
The Philadelphia 76ers have been in great form as they’ve won eight of their past nine games and they will be aiming for a third straight victory after outlasting the Knicks in a 101-100 overtime road win on Sunday. Shake Milton led the team in scoring with 21 points on nine of 15 shooting off the bench, Tobias Harris added 20 points on five of 18 shooting, Ben Simmons scored 16 points with eight rebounds and four assists while Furkan Korkmaz chipped in with 12 points. As a team, the 76ers shot 46 percent from the field and 11 of 25 from the 3-point line as they squandered a 14-point lead to allow the Knicks to force overtime, before escaping by the skin of their teeth as the Knicks’ Julius Randle barely missed the game-winner at the buzzer.
Meanwhile, the Golden State Warriors have been in decent shape as they’ve won three of their past five games, but they will be looking to bounce back after getting stopped by the Grizzlies in a 111-103 road loss on Saturday. Jordan Poole led the team with 26 points and five assists on 10 of 21 shooting, Andrew Wiggins added 20 points with nine rebounds while Kelly Oubre Jr. chipped in with 12 points. As a team, the Warriors shot just 34 percent from the field and 13 of 41 from the 3-point line as they fought hard to take the lead at halftime behind their defense, before getting blown out in the second half where the Grizzlies poured in 62 points. Stephen Curry sat out the game with a bruised tailbone and remains out for Tuesday.
Looking at the betting trends, the 76ers are 14-34-3 ATS in their last 51 road games, 5-1-1 ATS in their last seven games against a team with a winning record and 7-1-1 ATS in their last nine games overall. The Warriors are 4-1 ATS in their last five home games, 2-5 ATS in their last seven games against a team with a winning record and 1-4 ATS in their last five games against a team above .600.
Head to head, the 76ers are 6-13 ATS in the last 19 meetings in Golden State and the 76ers are 8-3 ATS in the last 11 meetings overall.
The Warriors will remain without Stephen Curry for this one, but there is a chance that Eric Paschall and James Wiseman could be available, which would be a massive boost for a shorthanded Warriors team, while the 76ers will again be without Joel Embiid and Seth Curry. The 76ers come into this game as the team in better form and they are 8-3 ATS in the last 11 meetings overall, so I’m taking the 76ers in this one.
