The Los Angeles Clippers possess the best record in the NBA so far, but they’ll have their hands full against the red-hot Chicago Bulls on Saturday.
- The OVER is 5-0 in the Clippers’ last 5 games.
- The favorite is 8-2 ATS in the last 10 meetings.
- The UNDER is 5-1-1 in the Bulls’ last 7 vs the Western Conference.
Sportsbooks opened the Clips as 6.5-point favorites with a total of 203.5.
L.A. improved to 11-2 SU in the wake of Friday’s 121-115 win over the Sacramento Kings, while the Bulls have won four straight games and five of their past six tilts.
The combo of newcomer Dwyane Wade and the sharpshooting Jimmy Butler has improved the team’s defense tenfold this year, and it isn’t hurting the offense either. Butler is averaging a team-best 24.2 points per game with Wade right behind him at 17.3. That one-two punch wasn’t around last season, and it’s made opposing defenses change their game plan when facing the Bulls.
The Clippers have owned this series lately, taking six of the last eight meetings between the clubs.
