The total has gone OVER in 7 of LA Clippers' last 7 games on the road.

Prediction

The 76ers have been on fire offensively since the return of James Harden and have won 6 games in a row and covered the spread in 5 of them. The Clippers have been also been playing great lately as they have for the first team the whole team healthy so I expect a very close game as both teams play good defense so I'll take the Clippers with the points.
