Just 4 days after their shocking 121-107 win at Arena, the Philadelphia 76ers are hoping to complete the season sweep of the LA Clippers as the 2 teams meet tonight in Philadelphia. Tipoff is at 7:30 pm ET on ESPN as part of their double-header. I have prepared a Same Game Parlay, which you can find below.

Also, head over to our NBA picks page for predictions on the side and total for the rest of Wednesday’s games.

Let’s dive into my SGP bet now!

Russell Westbrook Over 3.5 assists (+116)

Norman Powell Over 2.5 made 3s (+120)

Ivica Zubac to score 10+ points (-128)

Same Game Parlay odds: +642

Russell Westbrook Over 3.5 assists (+116)

The downfall of the Clippers has coincided with an injury to Russell Westbrook. In 12 games without him, L.A. went just 6-6 SU while struggling on both ends of the floor. In their last 10 games the Clippers are just 29th in defensive rating, but all that should change with Russ back in the mix now. In his first game back he finished with 14 points and 7 assists in a modest 18 minutes played. His return will do wonders for this team, especially for the likes of James Harden — who no longer has to handle the ball nonstop on offense. Instead, the Beard can take a breather for longer periods of time and let Russ just do his thing. The 7 assists from Monday’s game will be tough to replicate, but we only need 4 for our bet to cash. At +116 odds, I really like our chances — especially with Westbrook averaging 10 dimes per game in his last 10 meetings with the 76ers.

Norman Powell Over 2.5 made 3s (+120)

One of the biggest beneficiaries of Westbrook’s return is Norman Powell. This was evident right from the get-go, as he went for 22 points in the loss to Indiana on 61% efficiency from the field and 40% from 3-point land. The 22 points scored was one of his highest marks of this calendar year so far and I expect him to continue delivering similar performances as we get closer to the postseason. If there is one thing Westbrook does well at this stage of his career, it is finding open shooters. Opposing teams normally focus on Kawhi Leonard and Paul George, so players like Powell, PJ Tucker and Terance Mann always get fed properly when Russ is around. Powell is averaging 2.5 triples per game on better than 39% shooting this month. Role players are very important when it comes to winning on the road and I expect him to deliver another solid output on Wednesday.

Ivica Zubac to score 10+ points (-128)

Playing alongside Harden and Westbrook has done wonders for the confidence of Clippers big man Ivica Zubac. He is averaging 11.3 points per game this season and that’s only going to improve with Russ coming back. We just saw Big Zu score 13 points in Sunday’s game against Philadelphia and the 76ers just aren’t equipped on the center position to handle players like him when Joel Embiid is out. The pick-and-roll combination between Zubac and Harden is tough to stop, but the one between him and Russ is even more lethal. I expect those 2 to keep the big man engaged and find him for open looks close to the basket.
