NBA: Los Angeles Clippers @ Dallas Mavericks
- Title : NBA: Los Angeles Clippers @ Dallas Mavericks
I've got Los Angeles winning this game by an average of 12 points and covering the number a whopping 70 procent of the time. History suggests this is a great spot: The Clippers are on a 4-1 ATS run in the series and also have gone 21-6 ATS following a straight-up loss.. Clippers have 11 wins vs dallas and 7 losses. clippers have won their last 2 of 5 and always have kawhi leonard to carry them.
Not a big price on offer here for the away side but Clippers are looking good in the conference and have a good head to head record winning 3 of the last 4.
Thursday night, regular season NBA action continues when the Dallas Mavericks take on the Los Angeles Clippers. If the season ended today, these two teams would meet in the first round of the Western Conference playoffs. The Clippers are 45-22 on the season and currently would be the 2nd seed, and the Dallas Mavericks are 41-29 and now 7th.
The Mavericks and Clippers have met twice earlier this season, with Los Angeles taking both meetings as the road team. The Clippers covered the spread on Nov. 26 as a 1.5 point favorite with a 114-99 victory. Los Angeles covered the spread again as a 2.5 point underdog with a 110-107 victory on Jan. 21. Well...
The Clippers are the better team overall and also have more to play for with Denver close behind. I will take the Clippers here. They are 10-4 in the last 14 games overall and are 4-1 in their last 5 games against Dallas.Mavericks are 0-7 in their last 7 when their opponent allows 100 points or more in their previous game.
NBA Prediction: Clippers to cover the spread on -4 points.
