Two teams looking to bounce back after their latest defeats are clashing tonight, when the Los Angeles Clippers (39-30), who are still hanging within the playoff places of the West but want to return to the winning ways today, are hosting the Chicago Bulls (19-50), who are struggling once again and have won only once in their last 6 games.
Date/Time: 03-15-2019, 22:30 EDT
Spread: Los Angeles Clippers -9
Los Angeles Clippers have a 39-30 record (40-29 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the 8th place of the West. In their last game they saw a five-game winning streak getting snapped by losing at home against the Blazers with a 104-125 score, not beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Lou Williams with 20.3 ppg and a team high 5.3 dimes per game off the bench. He is followed by Danilo Gallinari with 19.3 ppg and 5.9 boards per game.
Chicago Bulls have a 19-50 record (30-38-1 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the third to last place of the East. They have lost five of their last six matches and in their last game they lost at home against the Lakers with a 107-123 score, not beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Zach LaVine with 23.8 ppg, adding 4.6 boards and 4.4 dimes per game. He is followed by Lauri Markkanen with 19 ppg and a team high 9.1 boards per game.
In their previous meeting earlier this season the Clippers won on the road with a 101-106 score. Clippers have a 20-13 home record, while the Bulls are 11-22 on the road. Clippers are better offensively, scoring 114.4 ppg to Bulls’ 105 ppg, while Bulls are better defensively, allowing 112.8 ppg to Clippers’ 113.6. Clippers have better percentages both in field goals (46.9% to 45.4%) and in 3-pointers (38.6% to 35.4%). They are better in boards grabbed (45.6 to 42.5) and in dimes made (23.4 to 22.1), while both teams are almost equal in turnovers committed (13.7 to 13.9). Clippers are the favorite in this game and Vegas odds give them a -9 spread and expect them to beat the odds for an easy home victory.
