The Philadelphia 76ers have gone from dumpster fire to respectable surprise, to America’s new favorite team back to one of the worst rosters in the league — all in one season.
Although this squad came out firing after the turn of the calendar and looked like a dark horse to nab the eighth seed out East, reality set in when Joel Embiid was announced out for the season and Ben Simmons’ rookie year was pushed back to 2017-18.
The Los Angeles Clippers have also seen their ups and downs this season, but not nearly to the extent that Philly has.
These two face off in a Saturday afternoon contest in Los Angeles.
*All statistics, standings, records, rankings and trends are current as of this writing at 4:30 p.m. ET on Friday, March 10, 2017.
The Philadelphia 76ers enter this contest at just 23-31 overall, including a miserable 8-22 overall record on the road.
Against the spread, however, this group has been surprisingly efficient.
On the year, Philly is an impressive 39-25 ATS. On the road, that record is 16-14.
So what gives? For starters, oddsmakers haven’t given this group enough credit. No, the Sixers aren’t going to win many games straight up, but they have a young group that’s willing to run and score in transition.
That will always help ATS, and not even just when Embiid is healthy (this group is 7-3 ATS in its last 10).
In terms of traditional statistics, the Sixers are scoring 101.8 points per game. That number is only good enough for 26th in the NBA, but again, it’s the cheap transition buckets this group scores that keeps it within striking distance on a regular basis.
Defensively, that’s where Philadelphia finds itself in legitimate trouble. It gives up 108 points per night, which puts the team at 23rd in the Association.
The LA Clippers have won three of their last four outings. That’s good news for a squad that went just 1-4 immediately ahead of the current stretch.
On the season, LA is scoring 107.8 points per night. That number is good enough for eighth in the league.
Defensively, the Clips are allowing opponents to score 104.8 points per contest. That number puts them at 12th league-wide.
ATS, the Clippers are barely above .500 on the year. Despite their 39-26 record overall, they’re just 33-32 on the year.
Over their last 10, they’re .500 exactly, having gone 5-5 ATS in that stretch.

Free Philadelphia 76ers vs. LA Clippers NBA Prediction:
There’s little reason to believe the Sixers come away with a win straight up on the road against the Clippers, although their recent overtime loss to the Portland Trail Blazers may offer a bit of confidence.
All that said, a SU loss shouldn’t be compounded by a loss ATS in this one.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Sixers +12.5
Give this one to the home team, but don’t be shocked if the Sixers keep it within single digits.
