Even when healthy, the Philadelphia 76ers (37-25) have struggled on the road this year. So without All-Stars Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid in the lineup, it’s no surprise that the Sixers have dropped the first two games of their four-game road trip to the Lakers and Clippers. Tonight’s opponent — the Sacramento Kings (27-34) — appears to offer a little better chance for Philadelphia, but it won’t be easy as the Kings have won three straight and six of their last seven. Tip off is 10:00 p.m. EST at Golden 1 Center. To get Dunkel’s pick for this game and the full NBA schedule, click HERE.
The road was not very kind to the Arizona Wildcats either as they dropped both games on their recent trip to USC and UCLA. Combined with their loss to Oregon the game before, the Wildcats (19-10) have lost three straight heading into tonight’s contest with the Washington State Cougars (15-14), who snapped their own four-game losing streak with a 78-74 win over Washington on Friday. Tip off is 10:30 p.m. EST at McKale Center.

One team that is finding the road hospitable right now is the Edmonton Oilers (36-23-8), who opened their current trip with victories at Nashville and Dallas. Currently two points behind Vegas for the top spot in the Pacific Division, the Oilers will try to stay hot tonight as they visit the Chicago Blackhawks (30-28-8), who are making a late push to secure a wild card spot following a three-game winning streak. Face off is 8:30 p.m. EST at United Center. To get Dunkel’s pick for this game and the full NHL schedule, click HERE.
