Clippers vs. 76ers Prediction

Pick: Clippers -6

Clippers Betting Outlook

The Clippers are completely healthy. Yes, I just wrote that on March 27, and I hope I can again on April 27, which would mean there’s a chance they’ll be competing on May 27.

The Clippers, when fully healthy, are dominant. Of course, they’ve gone through a recent skid and been a near .500 team since the All-Star break. But in that span, the stars have been banged up, and the role players have been absent.

Russell Westbrook will return for this one, and he’s been a catalyst to the bench unit and gives the Clippers the ability to rebound when they go small.

L.A. also has some revenge factors in this game. James Harden will return to Philly, and Paul George shows up amid the rumors he’ll sign there this offseason.

While I think it’s far from the truth, I think all of these players know the relative storylines. The Clippers also just recently lost a bad one at home to these 76ers.

76ers Betting Outlook

The 76ers are just not the same team without their captain, Joel Embiid. It actually goes to show how he’s one of the league’s most valuable players. In his absence, the team craters from contender to fighting for a play-in spot a weak Eastern Conference.

While the Sixers have some hitters in Tyrese Maxey and a thriving Kelly Oubre, I think the lack of an interior game will make them come up short against a fully loaded Clippers team.

This is also a tough schedule spot for the 76ers, who are returning for one long home game between two road trips. The players will be doing full life duties outside the game and may not be mentally in this like the Clippers.

Clippers vs. 76ers Picks, Odds

This line opened at Clippers -5.5 and quickly moved to -6, where it’s settling now. I think this is very playable below the key number of the 7, the most common outcome in the NBA.

Pick: Clippers -6
