76ers vs. Clippers Prediction & Pick

The 76ers have squeaked out back-to-back road wins with late buckets from Joel Embiid as his chemistry with James Harden is blossoming. The Clippers held the Rockets to just 10 points in a valiant fourth-quarter effort on Sunday and are expected to get Paul George back for this contest.

Both of these team enter Tuesday with considerable momentum as a result, but I find myself leaning toward the 76ers here. Philadelphia is one of only five teams in the NBA to own a positive average scoring margin on the road and is holding opponents to 111.6 points per away game (No. 5 in NBA).

The 76ers are also 8-3 straight up in their last 11 games against the Clippers, so rock with the road team.

Final Score Prediction: 76ers: 114 | Clippers: 109

76ers vs. Clippers Best Bet

This is a matchup Philadelphia has simply dominated in the past. The 76ers are a ridiculous 11-3 against the spread (ATS) in their last 14 games against the Clippers and that includes a 5-1 ATS mark when in LA. They are also 8-2 straight up in their last 10 games against a Western Conference foe.

The Clippers enter Tuesday 2-6 ATS in their last eight games overall and 1-4 straight up in their last five matchups against an Eastern Conference opponent. Head coach Doc Rivers is leaning on his star players in the midst of a tough road trip and it has been working. Trust the 76ers to earn a victory.

Bet: Philadelphia 76ers ML (-116)
