The Clippers are 4-11 ATS in their last 15 games following a ATS win. The 76ers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The under is 5-2 in 76ers last 7 overall. The Clippers are 1-5 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Philadelphia and 2-9 ATS in the last 11 meetings.
The Philadelphia 76ers are playing their best ball of the season and the Clippers are still banged up, but I’m still not willing to lay big numbers with Philly. As good as the 76ers are playing, they’re winning their last five games by an average of just 1.2 points, and they win at home by an average of just 3.2 points. The Los Angeles Clippers are still a team that competes despite their injuries and losses. Too many points here. Give me the Clippers.
