Philadelphia at Los Angeles

2 units on Los Angeles +4 (-110) (risk 2 to return 2)  RESULT: LOSS

Elton Brand won't be playing in this one vs. his old team. Some think that will take some of the passion out of the game for LA. I don't. They still want to beat his new team. And, without Brand in the lineup, that's all together possible. The Sixers are just 1-4 in Brand's absence. They are just 5-10 on the season on the road and their defense has allowed four of their last five opponents to score in triple figures. With the way they are playing, and travelling cross-country, I just don't think the Sixers should be laying points. I'll back the home dog here.
