The Los Angeles Clippers are off to the best start in franchise history, and they’re sitting atop of the tough Western Conference as a result. With a win over the Portland Trail Blazers on Wednesday, the Clips can reach 7-1 SU.
- The Clippers are 12-2 SU in their last 14 games at home.
- The total has gone OVER in nine of the Trail Blazers’ last 11 games.
- The Trail Blazers are 1-6 ATS in their last seven games after a win.
Oddsmakers initially set the Blazers as 9-point road underdogs with a total of 207.
L.A. leads the NBA in scoring defense (89.4 points per game) and has held three of their last four opponents to 88 or fewer points. The Clippers hammered the Detroit Pistons on Monday to the tune of a 114-82 victory.
They’ll be in tough to contain the dynamic duo of Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum, though. Lillard (38 points) and McCollum (33) combined for 71 in Tuesday’s 124-121 triumph over the Phoenix Suns and are once again poised for a huge season in Oregon.
These teams met on October 27, where the Clippers posted a 114-106 road win at the Moda Center. Chris Paul and Blake Griffin each notched 27 points in that game.
When the Blazers and Clippers collide at Staples Center, low-scoring games tend to follow. The UNDER is 5-1 in the previous six between the squads in Los Angeles.
