Philadelphia 76ers vs LA Lakers: BETTING TIPS, PREDICTION & BETTING ODDS

Two old cross Conference rivals square off in LA tonight as the Philadelphia 76ers take on the Lakers. The first meeting of the season was played back in late November, the Sixers thoroughly dominated with a 138-94 blowout win. A lot has happened since, especially on the injury front and this 76ers team is nowhere near the one that recorded that 44-point victory. Joel Embiid remains out, with no timetable set for his return. Robert Covington and De’Anthony Melton join him on the sidelines, while Tobias Harris is questionable with an ankle problem. Philadelphia’s run of 7 straight wins over the Lakers is in jeopardy here, they’ve also won 6 of 7 games at Crypto.com Arena and have covered the spread in 8 of the last 11 meetings. With just 3 wins over their last 9 games, the oddsmakers have Philly as a 7.5 point underdog here.

Getting a win here is a priority for the Lakers, they cannot afford home losses against lesser teams with the Golden State Warriors breathing down their necks. With just 13 games remaining in the regular season, LA is only a half game up in the standings over the Warriors for the 9th seed. Earlier in the week they blew out the Atlanta Hawks 136-105, with their 3 best players AD, LeBron and Russell all playing no more than 31 minutes. Getting extra time off could be crucial down the stretch for the slightly older than normal roster of the Lakers. Injuries have slowed them down as well with Christian Wood, Jarred Vanderbilt and Gabe Vincent all out indefinitely. LA is 13-7 SU over their last 20 games.

LA Lakers Point Spread Prediction

Lakers -7.5 Point Spread is available at -110 odds

Due to the current injury situation, the Lakers are the clear cut favorites here. Philadelphia couldn’t do much in their game against the Suns the other night, the high paced Lakers could run them out the building here. Go with LA to cover.

Philadelphia 76ers vs LA Lakers Total Points Prediction: Over 224.5

Over 224.5 Total Points is available at -110 odds

Scoring has been a problem for Philadelphia ever since Embiid went down. Over the last 15 games this team ranks just 29th in pace, averaging 94.3 possessions per game. Only the Pistons, Grizzlies and Hornets have a worse offensive rating during this stretch, that just tells you everything you need to know about the state of this team. However, their luck might turn around a bit against the really poor defense of the Lakers. LA’s allows the 3rd highest amount of points per 100 possessions in their last 15 outings (118.2), with teams like Washington and Utah below them. That’s not really encouraging for a team that’s aiming for a deep playoff run, however the good news is the Lakers are more than capable of outscoring opponents to get wins. They just put up 136 on the Hawks earlier this week, that was their 3rd game of at least 120 points scored. With no interior presence, the Sixers could struggle to contain Anthony Davis here. Look for him to have a big scoring night and the two teams to cash on the over.
