Everyone will be watching when the Philadelphia 76ers head back to Los Angeles to play the Clippers Saturday night on NBA TV (10pm ET).
Both teams are in great form as each have won their last four games. The 76ers are fresh off of a 109-101 win and cover over the Los Angeles Lakers in this same building on Thursday night. Meanwhile, the Clippers smashed the San Antonio Spurs 98-85 the same night.
Philadelphia has been a cover machine: they have covered in nine straight meetings between the clubs. Although they did lose the last meeting 136-130 on March 1, 2020, they had won the previous five matchups. The most current odds show the Clippers as 4-point favorites in this meeting, and there are more than enough props to consider.
With Kawhi Leonard being listed as questionable for this one, we will look at the 76ers’ side of the ball.
76ers vs Clippers Player Props
|Player||Points||Rebounds||Assists||Three Pointers Made|
|Ben Simmons (76ers)||17.5 ( Ov -116 / Un -106)||8.5 ( Ov +108 / Un -132)||6.5 ( Ov +100 / Un -122)||OFF|
|Tobias Harris (76ers)||21.5 ( Ov -110 / Un -110)||7.5 ( Ov -124 / Un +102)||3.5 ( Ov -148 / Un +120)||1.5 ( Ov +164 / Un -215)|
|Seth Curry (76ers)||12.5 ( Ov -108 / Un -114)||2.5 ( Ov +134 / Un -164)||2.5 ( Ov +124 / Un -152)||1.5 ( Ov -145 / Un +115)|
Odds as of March 27th at FanDuel and BetMGM
Curry is a Shooter
We all know Steph Curry is a shooter but it seems like the books are sleeping on his brother Seth at the moment. His three-pointers made prop is floundering at the 1.5 mark and that is just too low. He can get hot at any time and even the best perimeter defenses can do little to stop his step-back three.

Over the last four games Curry has taken at least six three-pointers in each. As a result, he has drained at least two in all four games. The Clippers are generally not a team to target three-point shooters against as they are top-10 in the NBA in opponent three-point percentage. But in a situation like tonight where a guy like Curry can take up to eight attempts, it feels like a no-brainer.
The Pick: Seth Curry Over 1.5 Three-Pointers Made (-145)
Curry Not Just a Shooter
Curry is a guy that likes to just hang out by the three-point line, which is fine for a three-point shooting prop but that’s not all he can do. In his last four games, only 53% of his 59 shot attempts have come from distance. He can and will take guys off the dribble when necessary, which firmly puts his points prop in play tonight.

Curry has scored at least 13 points in three of his last four games. He has crossed the 20-point threshold twice in that span. Even if his three-ball is not falling tonight, he still should see enough volume to get to 13 points. The threes would obviously be a bonus but they are not entirely necessary for him to beat his points prop number.
The Pick: Seth Curry Over 12.5 Points (-108)
Tobias Harris Can Pass the Rock
One player who has really taken a step forward this season in all areas is Tobias Harris. He has always been a beast but with Joel Embiid on the shelf, Harris has stepped up as a facilitator. On nights where the Sixers want to go small with Ben Simmons at the five, Harris is capable of running the offense.

His new found role has led to a spike in the assist category. Harris has posted at least four assists in each of his last five games, and even had as many as eight in one game. The price tag is pretty juicy tonight, but the bar is extremely low for Harris. He could have at least four assists in the first half like he had last game.
The Pick: Tobias Harris Over 3.5 Assists (-148)
