Check out the Betway Insider's NBA picks and predictions page for tips throughout the 2020-21 NBA season.

Philadelphia 76ers (-1.5) vs Los Angeles Clippers

The 76ers have won five of their last seven games and beat the Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday to move a game clear at the top of the Eastern Conference.

They now face a tough test against the Clippers, who have won seven in a row but could be without Kawhi Leonard for the fourth consecutive game as he’s questionable with a foot injury.

Home advantage should prove crucial for the 76ers. They are 21-5 on their own court this season, while the Clippers are 17-10 on the road.

Washington Wizards (+1.5) vs New Orleans Pelicans

The Wizards have had a poor season so far, but they’ve now won four of their last five games including Wednesday’s 123-111 win over the Sacramento Kings.

Despite being 21-33 overall, the Wizards are 13-10 against Western Conference opponents this season and should further improve that record against the Pelicans, who have lost five of their last nine.

New Orleans is just 9-16 on the road this season and 2-5 in its last seven games against teams from the East.

Denver Nuggets (-8.5) vs Houston Rockets

The Nuggets rebounded from back-to-back defeats by beating the Miami Heat 123-106 on Wednesday, meaning they’ve now won nine of their last 11 games.

Denver ranks sixth in the NBA in net rating and has a 16-10 record on the road this season.

Expect an easy win over the Rockets, who have lost four in a row and nine of their last 10, dropping to 14-41 in a miserable season.

Portland Trail Blazers (-1.5) vs San Antonio Spurs

Portland has slumped to four defeats in its last five games, but a trip to San Antonio is a good opportunity to bounce back with a win.

The Spurs have lost 11 of their last 15 games to fall to 10th in the West, and their 12-17 home record is the fourth-worst in the conference.

Gregg Popovich’s team are just 14-19 against Western Conference opponents this season, while Portland is 16-14.
