Golden State Warriors vs. Philadelphia 76ers Odds – Regular Season Stats & Betting Trends

Can The Struggling Warriors Notch Their Fourth Win In Five Games?

Golden State Warriors Season Stats:

  • Scoring Offense: 118.8 PPG – 7TH          
  • Offensive Efficiency: 119.8 points per 100 possessions – 6TH               
  • Scoring Defense: 113.4 PPG – 14TH           
  • Defensive Efficiency: 114.4 points per 100 possessions – 11TH    

The Golden State Warriors occupy the No. 11 spot in the conference playoff race. This means that if the season ended today, they would not qualify for the play-in tournament. This is quite a surprise considering this team is just two years removed from hoisting the Larry O’Brien trophy. 

The Warriors are 5-5 across their last 10 outings. This includes a 109-98 win over the Brooklyn Nets on Monday night. Stephen Curry led the team in scoring with 29 points on 12-for-24 shooting from the field. He also tallied five rebounds and three assists. 

Jonathan Kuminga turned in a solid performance as he finished with 28 points, 10 rebounds, and three assists, while Brandin Podzienski contributed 15 points and 11 rebounds. While the Warriors did shoot a respectable 46.2 percent from the field, they converted just four of their 22 attempts from beyond the arc.

“It was ugly on both sides, but I think everybody was trying to execute and trying to settle into the style of the game, and then thankfully in the second half, we made the right adjustments and took control and never looked back,” Curry said after the game.

While the team is three games below .500, a win against Philadelphia would be the team’s fourth win in five tries. And given the Sixers will be without Joel Embiid for at least the next several weeks, the Warriors have at an outside chance of winning this game.

Can The Sixers Figure It Out?

Philadelphia 76ers Season Stats:

  • Scoring Offense: 118.7 PPG – 8TH  
  • Offensive Efficiency: 118.8 points per 100 possessions – 9TH           
  • Scoring Defense: 114.6 PPG – 15TH         
  • Defensive Efficiency: 116.0 points per 100 possessions – 16TH       

Meanwhile, the Sixers have fallen to the fifth spot in the Eastern Conference as they have dropped six of their last seven contests. They also enter this tilt against the Warriors amid a two-game losing skid.

This includes a 118-102 loss to the Dallas Mavericks on Monday night. Kelly Oubre Jr. scored a team-high 19 points and grabbed six rebounds. 

Tobias Harris added 17 points on 8-for-11 shooting from the floor. He also had six rebounds and six assists. Tyrese Maxey contributed 15 points and seven assists. Philadelphia shot just 43 percent from the field (40-for-93) and 8-for-29 from 3-point range (27.6 percent).  

“I think when you lose a guy from the lineup like Joel, outside of the scoring, the defense and just physical presence is just out there on the floor and we’re missing that heavily,” Tobias Harris said, via CBS Sports.

“But we have to figure out a way to kind of bring that in different elements of the game. Whether that’s us using our speed, us using our quickness on the offensive end and just make decisions, get down the hill, or using our craftiness defensively in these games.

“We gotta figure it out.”

It will be interesting to see if Philadelphia can remain in contention for a playoff berth without its MVP center in the lineup.

Now that we have set the table for this East vs. West matchup, let us look at the betting trends for both sides.
