Warriors vs. 76ers Prediction & Pick

It's important to note right off the top that the Warriors will be without a few key players for this battle. Stephen Curry (shoulder) and Andrew Wiggins (adductor) have already been ruled out, while Klay Thompson and Draymond Green are listed as day-to-day. That obviously makes a huge difference.

Without a healthy roster, Golden State is in trouble on Friday night. Philadelphia is shooting 47.7% from the floor this season (No. 10 in NBA) and holding opponents to an average of just 108.2 points per game (No. 3 in NBA). The 76ers' ability to wreak havoc on both ends makes them tough to beat.

Philly hasn't lost at home since Nov. 19, so I feel comfortable backing the Sixers tonight.

Final Score Prediction: Warriors: 101 | 76ers: 116

Warriors vs. 76ers Best Bet

There's no way around it. The 76ers have become a team that knows how to blow out opponents when they are supposed to and keep scores close in games they aren't supposed to win. Philadelphia is 10-0 against the spread (ATS) in its last 10 home games and 11-4 ATS in its last 15 games overall.

Not only that, but the 76ers are also 12-3 ATS in their last 15 home games against the Warriors. Bet on Philly to win this one easily.

Bet: Philadelphia 76ers -10 (-110)
