Spread: Los Angeles Clippers -2
Los Angeles Clippers have a 37-29 record (38-28 against the spread) so far this season and are currently tied with the Spurs in the 7th place of the West. They have won four of their last five matches and in their last game they won on the road against the Lakers with a 113-105 score, beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Lou Williams with 19.8 ppg and a team high 5.4 dimes per game off the bench. He is followed by Danilo Gallinari with 18.9 ppg and 6 boards per game.
Oklahoma City Thunder have a 40-25 record (34-31 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the third place of the West. They have won two of their last three matches and in their last game they won on the road against the Blazers with a 129-121 score in overtime, beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Paul George with 28.6 ppg, adding 8.1 boards and 4.2 dimes per game. He is followed by Russell Westbrook with 22.9 ppg, adding team highs both in boards grabbed with 11.1 and in dimes made with 10.6 per game.
In their three previous meetings earlier this season the Thunder lead the Clippers 2-1 wins with each team having won at home. Warriors have a 23-9 home record, while the Nuggets are 16-15 on the road. Warriors are better offensively, scoring 118.2 ppg to Nuggets’ 112.1 ppg, while Nuggets are better defensively, allowing 107 ppg to Warriors’ 112.4. Warriors have better percentages both in field goals (48.8% to 46.8%) and in 3-pointers (37.8% to 35.5%). Nuggets on the other hand are better both in boards grabbed (46.9 to 46.2) and in turnovers committed (13 to 13.6), while Warriors are better in dimes made (29 to 27.7). Warriors are the favorite at home but Vegas odds give them a -6 spread and don’t expect them to beat the odds as the Nuggets will definitely force a closer game than that.
