Suns vs. Clippers Prediction
One day after falling to the Spurs as a huge home underdog, the Suns once again find themselves as a dog tonight when they visit the Clippers at 10:30PM ET.
Our NBA Odds page shows that the Suns are a 15.5-point road underdog versus the Clippers according to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI. As for the total, the number opened at 210.5 but has jumped all the way up to 213 at BetDSI.
Phoenix is a brutal 14-42 on the season and just 22-34 against the spread, which includes a 7-19 ATS road mark. The Suns are winless over their last 11 games and have failed to cover the spread in 30 of their last 44 games overall. On the other side, Los Angeles is 36-19 straight up and 27-25 against the spread, which includes a 6-4 ATS mark over its last 10 games.
With how poorly the Suns have played of late, bettors might be inclined to just lay the 15.5 points on the Clippers. But Phoenix just covered as a 14-point home dog versus the powerful Spurs on Sunday so there’s seemingly more value in the total.
The Suns rank 29th in defensive efficiency but the Clippers are 8th so it’s unlikely that Phoenix will contribute enough to the over (especially playing on tired legs). The under has hit in five of the Clippers’ last six games overall and is 12-2 in their last 14 games following a loss. It’s also 4-1 in the Suns’ last five road games.
