The 76ers and Clippers meet Sunday in NBA action at the Crypto.com Arena. We will look at this from a betting perspective and determine the best bets for this game. Here’s a 76ers vs Clippers prediction.

Philadelphia 76ers

The Philadelphia 76ers have been in a real funk as they've lost seven of their last 10 games overall and they will be hoping to avoid a third straight defeat after getting beaten by the Lakers in a 101-94 road loss on Friday. Tyrese Maxey led the team with 27 points on 10 of 26 shooting, Kelly Oubre Jr added 19 points while Tobias Harris chipped in with 16 points, 13 rebounds and four assists. As a team, the 76ers shot just 34 percent from the field and eight of 37 from the 3-point line which was still good enough to hang with the Lakers all the way until the Lakers went on a pivotal 12-4 run midway through the fourth quarter to slip away in a close finish. The 76ers will face the Kings, Clippers, and Cavaliers after this game.

Los Angeles Clippers

Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Clippers haven't been at their best lately as they've lost four of their last seven games overall, but they will be aiming for a third straight win after outlasting the pesky Trail Blazers in a 125-117 road win on Friday. Paul George led the team with 31 points on 10 of 14 shooting, Kawhi Leonard added 22 points on nine of 15 shooting, Terance Mann added 20 points while James Harden tallied 15 points with 10 assists. As a team, the Clippers shot 57 percent from the field and 14 of 33 from the 3-point line as they caught fire early with 42 points in the first quarter and they just kept their foot on the gas until they led by as many as 26 points in the third quarter. However, it wasn't exactly smooth sailing after that as the Clippers received a bit of a scare when the Trail Blazers rallied in the fourth quarter to cut the lead to just six points.

76ers vs Clippers

The 76ers are still missing a bunch of players including Joel Embiid, De'Anthony Melton and Kyle Lowry, while the Clippers are still without Russell Westbrook and they are keeping eyes on PJ Tucker and Norman Powell who are both questionable for this one. The 76ers showed plenty of fight to hang with the Lakers in their last outing, but with Lowry being rested for this one, I don't see the already shorthanded 76ers having enough firepower to hang with the Clippers on the road.
