★★★
The Philadelphia 76ers are in Oakland to square off against the defending NBA Champion Golden State Warriors. Both franchises have been trending in polar opposite directions over the past couple of seasons.

At 9-64, Philadelphia currently holds the third worst winning percentage in NBA history. Meanwhile Golden State is just eight wins shy of breaking the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls record of 72 wins in a single season.

Despite the disparity in wins, the Sixers played the Warriors down to the final minute in their last meeting in Philadelphia back on January 30th. You can catch up on all the action from that game below:


Virtual sports book BetOnline currently lists the Warriors as huge 21 point favorites over the lowly Sixers. Golden State has defeated Philadelphia by an average of 41.5 points in their last two meetings at Oracle.

The 76ers are losers of eight straight and have secured only one win in their last 22 games overall. However Philadelphia is 4-2 ATS in their last six contests on the road according to OddsShark.com.

Sunday's OVER/UDER line is set at 224.5 total points. This line is not extraordinary for a game that features the high octane Warriors offense, however the total has gone UNDER in four of Golden State's previous six games. To compliment this trend, the total has also gone UNDER in five of Philadelphia's last six games overall.
