Our first game is the Philadelphia 76ers traveling to Atlanta to take on the Hawks. The Sixers are three and a half point favored with the over-under set to 225.5.
Atlanta's 13 and 1 straight up in their last 14 games at home. Philly's 1 in 6 against the spread in their last 7 games when playing Atlanta on the Road. Atlanta can't hold Philly on defense, but they can score points. I don't know who wins this game, but I do think that Atlanta keeps a competitive, which means they'll score a lot. 225 seems a little bit light for the point total, so I like the over.
Onto the West Coast where the Utah Jazz are traveling to Los Angeles to take on the Clippers. The Clippers are four point favorites with the over-under set to 223.5. Utah is 5, 1, and 1 against the spread in their last 7 games. The Clippers are 4 and 9 against the spread in their last 13 games when playing at home against the Jazz.
Obviously, Donovan Mitchell's going to score his, but the Jazz are really lacking right now without Mike Conley. And if he can't get healthy, I think the Clippers should even the series and then get another amazing performance from Playoff P. So I do like the Clippers to cover minus 4, and hopefully Playoff P shows up again.
