The Warriors dropped two games on their East coast road trip and head into Philadelphia with a half-game lead over the Denver Nuggets in the Western Conference standings.

Can the Warriors get a much-needed road win as favorites against the short-handed 76ers?

Our analysts break down all the angles.

Trends to Know

The Warriors have lost back-to-back games for the sixth time this season. Under Steve Kerr, the Warriors have gone 13-4 straight up and 9-8 against the spread in the regular season when on a losing streak. — John Ewing

The Warriors (43-19) and Sixers (40-22) are two of the best teams in the NBA. When two good teams (won at least 60% of their games) play it has been profitable to bet the under presumably because good teams play defense. Since 2005, when two such teams meet the under has gone 871-720-15 (55%). — Ewing

In their last game against the Magic, the Warriors shot 9-of-40 (22.5%) from 3-point range, their third-worst 3-point shooting performance of the season.

Under Kerr, the Warriors have not been able to bounce back and cover the spread efficiently in their next game on the road after a poor 3-point shooting performance in their previous game.

They are 5-11 ATS when they play on the road under Kerr after shooting 25% or lower on 3s in their previous game, losing bettors 6.3 units and making Kerr the third-least profitable coach in the NBA in this spot. — Evan Abrams

Mears: How I’m Betting this Game

It’s going to be really tempting to take the 76ers here. First, the Warriors have been reeling lately, dropping three of their past four and four of their past six. Their last game was particularly brutal: They scored just 96 points in a road loss to the Magic.
