NBA FREE PICK: Take Los Angeles. According to latest NBA trends, the home team is 20-7 ATS L27 in is series. Jazz are 6-13-1 ATS in their last 20 road games, 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games following a ATS win and are 3-9 ATS in their last 12 road games vs. a team with a winning home record. L.A. Clippers are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 Sunday games, 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following a ATS loss, 7-1 ATS in their last 8 home games, 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games playing on 1 days rest and are 16-5 ATS in their last 21 after scoring 100 points or more in their previous game.

Utah (15-16 SU, 14-16-1 ATS) takes on the hottest team in the NBA on the road. Not an easy task even after Utah gave the Clippers all they could handle on Friday night, losing 116-114, getting 3 at home. The Clippers, who won 16 straight, can't take the Jazz lightly as they were down 19 on the road. At home, the Clippers have been simply dominant and a lot of it has to do with their bench play. Forward Matt Barnes is giving the team a huge lift. He had a career-best streak of nine straight games with at least 10 points snapped on Friday when he scored six points. The Clippers are 17-0 when Barnes scores in double figures off the bench. Utah is a different team at home, where they are 9-4 SU, but are just 6-12 on the road. They beat a short-handed Orlando team in their last road game, but before that were routed by Indiana by 20 and by 16 at Miami. Expect a similar double-digit loss to the Clippers.
