Basketball betting on the game between the Philadelphia 76ers and Los Angeles Clippers holds a little intrigue as Elton Brand returns to LA. It will be the first time Brand has played in Los Angeles against the Clippers since his trade to Philadelphia.
The teams met earlier this season in Philadelphia though and the 76ers got an 89-88 win but didn’t cover the pro basketball betting pointspread.
Basketball betting information shows that this is the fourth game of a six-game road trip for Philadelphia. It is a back-to-back situation for the Clippers as basketball betting scheduling information shows. The Clippers played in Sacramento last night as pro basketball betting scheduling shows.
It is hard to say which team has been more disappointing this season, the 76ers or the Clippers. Both teams have flopped. Philadelphia was expecting a lot more out of Brand while the Clippers were expecting to at least be competitive. Brand has led the 76ers in scoring but his numbers are down as basketball betting stats indicate. Averaging about 15 points per game as basketball betting stats have it is not what Philadelphia paid big money for. It is not all Brands fault though as Andre Iguodala is having an off year as well as basketball betting stats show. Philadelphia does play some defense though as they have been in the Top 10 for most of the season as basketball betting stats have it. Their offense just can’t put enough points on the board consistently to win games against the basketball odds.
The Clippers have been just as big of a bust but expectations are lower in Los Angeles for the Clippers. Baron Davis is no longer a superstar scorer and although Zach Randolph has played well since coming over from the Knicks, the Clippers still lose games versus the pro basketball betting number. On paper the Clippers should be much better than their record shows according to basketball betting stats. With Davis, Randolph, Al Thornton and Marcus Camby, the Clippers should be a threat versus pro basketball betting pointspreads.
The 76ers have won 6 of the last 10 meetings between the two teams as basketball betting numbers show. At Los Angeles though, the Clippers have won three of the last four as basketball betting trends show. The last four games between the two teams have gone under the basketball odds. Three of the last four at Los Angeles have gone under the basketball betting total.
