Spread: Los Angeles Clippers +2
Los Angeles Clippers have a 38-29 record (39-28 against the spread) so far this season and are currently tied with the Jazz in the 6th place of the West. They have won five of their last six matches and in their last game they won at home against the Thunder with a 118-110 score, beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Lou Williams with 20.2 ppg and a team high 5.4 dimes per game off the bench. He is followed by Danilo Gallinari with 19.2 ppg and 6 boards per game.
Boston Celtics have a 41-26 record (34-32-1 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the 5th place of the East. They have won four of their last five matches and in their last game they won on the road against the Kings with a 111-109 score. They are led in scoring by Kyrie Irving with 23.5 ppg, adding 4.9 boards and a team high 6.9 dimes per game. He is followed by Jayson Tatum with 16.1 ppg and 6.2 boards per game.
In their previous meeting earlier this season the Clippers won on the road with a 112-123 score. Clippers have a 19-12 home record, while the Celtics are 17-16 on the road. Clippers are better offensively, scoring 114.2 ppg to Celtics’ 112.3 while Celtics are better defensively, allowing 106.6 ppg to Clippers’ 113.4 ppg. Clippers have better percentages both in field goals (46.8% to 46.5%) and in 3-pointers (38.2% to 36.5%). Clippers are better in boards grabbed (45.5 to 44.8), while Celtics are better both in dimes made (26.4 to 23.3) and in turnovers committed (12.7 to 13.9). Both teams are hot lately and Vegas odds give the Celtics a -2 spread but don’t expect them to beat the odds and pick the Clippers in this one.
