On Tuesday evening, the Sixers play host to the Los Angeles Clippers. The Sixers enter play a disappointing 33-21, which is good for fifth place in a crowded middle of the Eastern Conference. The Clippers are 3.5 games back of Lakers for the best record in the Western Conference. The most impressive part of the Clippers’ record is that they’ve done it despite two extended absences of Paul George and the load management of Kawhi Leonard.

This marks the first meeting between the teams this season in what many believed could’ve been a preview of the NBA Finals.

With that, let’s get into our Sixers-Clippers betting preview.

Bets We Like With a Sixers Win

FiveThirtyEight gives the Sixers a 69% chance of winning with a -5 point line. The Sixers are the best home team in the NBA with a record of 24-2, while the Clippers are just 15-11 on the road.

Ben Simmons to Record a Double-Double and Sixers Win (+165, FoxBet)

You can get Simmons to record a double-double at -200, but if you believe he’ll rise to the occasion on national TV and lead the Sixers to the win as well, the boost to +165 could be worth a look.

Bets We Like With a Clippers Win

Kawhi Leonard Over 1.5 Made 3-Point FG and Clippers Win (+190, FoxBet)

In four games in the month of February, Kawhi has gone 4-9, 2-3, 4-10, and 3-7 from deep. If you think the Clippers will pull out a road win, this is about as sure of a bet as you’ll find.

Bets We Like Independent of Outcome

Ben Simmons Scoring Special (DraftKings)

This one is always worth a look. Ben Simmons is +650 to score the first field goal of the game, which are the same odds given to teammate Tobias Harris. Sure, the dynamic duo of Kawhi Leonard and Paul George are slightly better bets at +600 and DraftKings seems to believe in Joel Embiid’s determination to get the first bucket at +420, but that’s not the point. If Simmons makes the first basket of the game, you’ll get $1 for every point, rebound, and assist he scores in the game. Just navigate to the promotions page and opt-in to the bonus. Minimum $25 bet required.

Sixers vs. Clippers Prediction

Pick: It’s as close to a pick ’em as you’ll find. My gut says the Clippers pull this one out, so take the Kawhi prop and consider the Simmons one as well.

  1. Where have you been??? We’ve been salivating for these locks!! You realize that if you took both kawhi and simmons props, you’re guaranteed to lose at least one right? Why didn’t you just say “take the clippers money line. Consider the Sixers as well”? Where else can we get such rock solid advice!!

    1. At least Russoy Joy has the stones to leave comments open on his betting posts. “Bad Bet Bob” and Kylie Meantweets could take a cue from him.

  2. Philly fans don't deserve to have players like Embiid and Simmons because Philly fans are quick to run their star players and coaches out of town says:

    Let’s see if the Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons haters give the Sixers their props in defeating a legitimate title contender in the LA Clippers.

    1. It’s becoming more and more clear who the team should be building around. I find it hard to believe his behavior and attitude is not a problem in the locker room. Simmons has his faults but he has never went on social media and posted immature junk. He does a lot in the community and seems like he has embraced the city.

      Embiid has to understand you can’t play hard when you feel like it and expect this city to be behind you. In Miami he can’t get away with It because they’re a bandwagon egotistical fan base.

  3. Clippers 3rd game in 4 days on the road. They beat the Bucks on Christmas too, so what? Let me know when they manage to overcome the Hawks or the Nets on the road then maybe we can crown them. Come on bro, need some second level thinking out of you.

    1. Get used to it pal. Our women are free in this country. Your silly religion has kept your part of the world in the Stone Age.
