LA Lakers vs LA Clippers: Betting Tips, Prediction & Betting Odds

It’s an old rivalry renewed tonight in LA as the Lakers and Clippers battle for the 4th and final time this regular season. Surprisingly the Lakers have had the edge so far with 2 wins in the 3 meetings. I say surprisingly because the Clippers have dominated this match-up over the past few seasons winning 8 of the last 10 meetings and 7 straight as the home team. The Lakers will have a mountain to climb here, they’ll most likely be without their best (or 2nd best, depending who you ask) player Anthony Davis who is battling an upper respiratory illness. That would be a massive blow to their ambitions, when AD doesn’t play the Lakers are only 1-3 SU this season. For what it’s worth, the only win came on the road at TD Garden against the Boston Celtics about a month ago.

The Clippers have been up and down after the break, exchanging wins and losses in the 3 games played so far. Their latest game was a home defeat to the Sacramento Kings, in a game in which they went into as 5.5 point favorites. Paul George was absent in the loss, according to the latest reports he will skip this game as well with a knee issue. The last thing the Clippers want now is one of their star players going down after going almost 60 games without any serious setbacks. At 20-7 SU they’re one of the better home teams in the league, so despite George’s absence they’re still the favorite here. One thing they’ll need to fix though is their three-point shooting – over the last 3 games they’ve made just 32 of them which is an average of under 11 per game.

LA Clippers Point Spread Prediction

LA Clippers -3.5 Point Spread is available at -110 odds

The oddsmakers are expecting a close finish here, I’m not so sure about that if Davis doesn’t play. Kawhi and co. have been a well oiled machine at home this season, they also won the most recent meeting by 11 points. I’m sticking with them to cover the spread here.

Lakers vs Clippers Total Points Prediction: Over 235.5

Over 235.5 Total Points is available at -110 odds

Not much has changed in Lakers road games since the All-Star break. They played two of them and both saw more than 235 points, coincidentally tonight’s projected total is 235.5 points. That number was cleared twice in the 3 meetings between the two teams, an average of 235.6 points per game was scored in those games. Anthony Davis not playing means that the Lakers will play very small here and push the tempo, thankfully the Clippers have enough weapons to respond as they’re the 5th ranked team in the NBA in terms of offensive efficiency. Although the two teams share the same arena, the Lakers are technically the road team here and they’ve gone over the total 15 times in their last 20 road games. We were just a couple of points shy of clearing the over in their last road game in Phoenix, I think this game will go into the high 230s and possibly even the 240s, there’s just too much offensive talent on both rosters. Let’s back the points.
