Two teams with heightened expectations in the 2016-17 NBA campaign will do battle at the Staples Center on Sunday when the Utah Jazz tangle with the hometown Los Angeles Clippers.
- The Jazz are 3-0 ATS in their last three games on the road against the Clippers.
- The visiting team is 6-1 ATS in its last seven games in this matchup.
- The total has gone UNDER in seven of the Jazz’ last 10 games on the road.
Sportsbooks opened the Clippers as 8-point faves with an OVER/UNDER of 196.
Both squads have already faced the Portland Trail Blazers with different results. The Clips took home a 114-106 victory over the Blazers in their season-opening game, while the Jazz fell 113-104in Tuesday’s opener. Utah had a better effort on Friday by topping the Los Angeles Lakers 96-86.
Derrick Favors is proving why he’s such a difference-maker for Utah. The big man sat out against Portland with a knee injury but returned to the lineup on Friday, playing only 20 minutes but managing 15 points, nine rebounds and two blocks.
How badly have the Jazz been against the Clippers in recent years? Utah is an ugly 1-15 SU in its last 16 against the Clippers. Yikes.
