Clippers vs Utah Jazz pick
We’re done with the Christmas fever, now it’s time to go back to some NBA picks. Some teams have already put their name up for the title , and one of those teams is LA Clippers. Mentioned before in some of our NBA tips, they have a good chance tonight to leave another victim behind.
The Los Angeles Clippers are simply rolling right now and feeling like they cannot be stopped. They have won 15 straight while going an incredible 12-3 ATS in the process. Getting them as only a 3-point favorite over the Utah Jazz tonight is an absolute gift from oddsmakers as they make it 16 in a row. Considering the fashion in which the Clippers have been beating teams – badly – the streak might not end for a while. Los Angeles is winning by an average of 16.3 points during its run while shooting 48.4 percent from the floor.
DeAndre Jordan also credited the team’s chemistry for allowing them to blend players as old as Lamar Odom (33) rather seamlessly in the rotation with some as young as Griffin (23). For the month of December, Jordan averaged almost 8 PPG/8 rebounds/2 steals on 71.4 percent shooting from the field. He’s only owned in 36 percent of CBS leagues, so get on board before it’s too late.
There’s always a dearth of quality big men in the NBA, and Jordan is doing a decent job of filling out the statistical categories
“We have a mixture of some young guys, some guys in their prime and some veterans on this team,” Jordan said. “We play well together on the court, but we are also close off the court and I think that helps our play. If we continue to stay close and everybody stays healthy we will be alright.”
Utah is on a downward spiral having lost five of its last seven games while going 2-5 ATS as well. The Jazz recently suffered a big blow when they lost starting point guard Mo Williams (12.9 PPG, 6.7 APG) to a thumb injury. They played poorly without him in an 83-94 home loss to the Golden State Warriors last time out on Wednesday.
This play falls into a system that is 62-22 (73.8%) ATS over the last 5 seasons. It tells us to bet on road favorites (LA CLIPPERS) – off 2 consecutive home wins by 10 points or more.
The Clippers are 14-2 ATS in their last 16 games following a SU win of more than 10 points. The Jazz are 1-9 ATS in their last 10 Friday games. Utah is 3-9 ATS in its last 12 games vs. a team with a winning % above .600. Bet the Clippers Friday night to cover 3 only at SportsInteraction – NBA betting
