The 76ers are 16-34-3 ATS in their last 53 road games and 12-3-1 ATS in their last 16 games overall. The Clippers are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The under is 5-1 in 76ers last 6 overall. The under is 4-1 in Clippers last 5 Saturday games. The 76ers are 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Los Angeles and 9-0 ATS in the last 9 meetings.
The Los Angeles Clippers have a lot of players questionable for this contest and who plays certainly changes the view of this line. However, as well as the 76ers have played, this is a game where they're likely going to miss Embiid, assuming the Clippers have their key players. The Los Angeles Clippers are playing some of their best basketball of the season right now, which includes winning their last five games by an average of 13.2 points. I need more points to consider the 76ers here. Give me the Clippers and reasonable chalk.
