Clippers underdogs ? NBA pick
Who would have believe to see the Clippers as home underdogs ?
It doesn’t happen very often , but in front of the Thunder , there’s a possibility.
Coming off a tough loss at Denver , Oklahoma is in Angels City to meet the revelation Clippers. Their OT loss vs Denver wasn’t surprising, considering the excellent game in transition of the home team. Also keep in mind that Thunder had a strong rally in the 4th to tie the game , and some amazing shots by Russell Westbrook.
The Thunder’s point guard is averaging 33.8 points over his last four games.Kevin Durant scored 37, setting a personal best with four straight contests of 30 or more points, while Russell Westbrook had 36. This might look like impressive stats, but they still lost the game.
On the other side, the Clippers, with Chris Paul back, had their four-game winning streak stopped in a 106-99 loss at Golden State on Monday. Paul’s shooting was quite terrible 1 of 7, but he’s still recovring after the injury.
THe history is on the home side , The Clippers have won four in a row at home against the Thunder.
During Paul’s injury and also in the last game, the go to guy for the Clippers was J Crawford. Amazing shooting versus the Warriors, he connected for 24 points.
The NBA stats are quite balanced , but a good chance to see where the NBA pick can go to:
Clippers are 7-0 ATS in their last 7 after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game.
Thunder are 0-4 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Los Angeles.
Clippers are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games vs. a team with a winning road record.
Clippers are 10-4 ATS in their last 14 home games.
Over is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings.
Home team is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
Thunder are 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings.
Underdog is 10-4 ATS in the last 14 meetings.
Looking over all these NBA trends, the OKC might be running a bit better, but getting an underdog as good as the Clippers at home , it doesn’t happen very often . Expecting the bounce back from the Clips and the home court advantage to make the difference. Possible low scoring game, but
