76ers vs. Clippers 2023 NBA Odds and Preview – January 17th

By Jeff Stinger

The Sixers are firing on all cylinders as they secure two-straight road wins over the Jazz and the Lakers, respectively. This will be their final regular-season meeting with the Clippers after securing the first win at home last December. Meanwhile, the hosts look shaky despite losing their most recent game opposing the Rockets. The Clips are still 3-7 in their last ten games and in need of steadier results. This is going to be a tricky game for the hosts who have a pair of key players on the injury list.

Why Bet on the Philadelphia 76ers?

The Atlantic Division hosts a competitive group of teams, including the Sixers. Philadelphia currently sits third in its division but holds the fourth seed in the Eastern Conference thanks to a 27-16 record. They recently pulled off a narrow one-point win over the Lakers to continue a solid road stint.

The Sixers are one of the better two-way teams in the league. Their overall statistics speak for themselves when it comes to their production on the floor. On the offensive side of things, the 76ers average 113.8 points per game on 47.9% shooting. They have a top-four three-point shooting percentage at 37.9% while maintaining a respectable 54.5% from the two-point range. More than that, the Sixers feature great free-throw shooting figures. The squad makes 82.5% of its shots from the line.

As for Philadelphia’s defense, they restrict teams to 110.2 points per game on 46.8% shooting. They have impeccable three-point defense and hold teams to 34.5% from deep. The Sixers’ opponents’ two-point shooting percentages remain respectable at 54.6%. Furthermore, the lineup collects 47.8 total rebounds per game with Joel Embiid leading the stat at 9.81 boards per game on top of his team-best 33.41 points per game average.

Why Bet on the Los Angeles Clippers?

The LA Clippers hold the sixth-best record in the Eastern Conference. If they fail to get some traction in the following weeks, we expect their position to drop with the bottom half of the table building momentum.

The Clippers are in for a tough matchup here. Paul Goerge awaits a game-time decision while he recovers from hamstring issues while John Wall sustained an abdominal injury that leaves him out until at least the first week of February. If George ends up sitting this one out, the bulk of the scoring load goes to Kawhi Leonard, Marcus Morris, and Norman Powell. As a team, the Clips average 109.4 points per game on 46.2% shooting. They post competent numbers from deep and hit 37.0% of their long-range attempts.

Defensively, the Clippers can prevent the Sixers from pulling away in this one. The hosts limit their opponents to 109.9 points per game on 46.2% shooting. The squad averages 53.8% opponent two-point shooting and a league-best 34.0% opponent three-point percentage. Additionally, the Clips register capable rebounding figures and collect 53.1 total boards per game. Ivica Zubac tops the team in rebounds as he picks up 10.33 boards per game in 43 appearances.

76ers vs. Clippers Expert Betting Prediction

The Clippers are shorthanded once again as John Wall and Luke Kennard sit this one out. Paul George on day-to-day spells bad news for the hosts as well. But that’s not to say they can’t take this game down to the wire after Terance Mann led the team with over 31 points on top of Leonard’s 30-point game. The Clips still have a clear shot at covering the spread and scoring the win.

Meanwhile, the Sixers were lucky to escape the Lakers last weekend, but they are definitely playing better than the Clippers at the moment. Having a strong road run tells us they can keep the hosts under pressure throughout the game. It’s a close game to call, but the Sixers take the slight advantage on paper here.
