Clippers on a big skid

Los Angeles is coming off a 112-94 loss at home to Golden State on Saturday. The Clippers have dropped five straight, failing to cover the spread in all five games. Los Angeles is now 24-21 overall, 10-11 on the road, 24-21 against the spread and 25-20 with the over.

The Clippers are rolling on offense this season, averaging 114.7 points per game while shooting 38.4 percent from the arc. Defensively, Los Angeles is giving up 114.6 points per game while allowing opponents to shoot 45.6 percent. Danilo Gallinari is doubtful to play today due to a back injury while Lou Williams is questionable with a hamstring issue. Tobias Harris has been leading the team with 20.9 points and 8.0 rebounds per game while Gallinari has been averaging 19 points per contest.

Spurs return home

San Antonio has won back-to-back road games over the Timberwolves and the Mavericks. Five of their last seven have been on the road. The Spurs are now 27-20 on the season, 18-6 at home, 28-18-1 against the spread and 26-20-1 with the over.

The Spurs are putting up 111.8 points per game this season while shooting a league-best 40.4 percent from the arc and league-best 82 percent from the free-throw line. Defensively, the Spurs are giving up 109.3 points per game. DeMar DeRozan is leading San Antonio with 21.7 points, 6.1 rebounds and 6.4 assists per game while LaMarcus Aldridge is adding 20.6 points and 8.5 rebounds per game.

NBA Betting Trends

Los Angeles

The Clippers have covered the spread in four of their last five road games but have failed to cover in seven straight following a double-digit loss at home.

San Antonio

The Spurs are 27-9 against the spread in their last 36 home games and 6-0-1 ATS in their last seven against Pacific Division opponents.

Prediction:

The Spurs have won two of three against the Clippers this season, but covered the spread in all three meetings. The Spurs were able to earn the rebounding edge in both wins and I would expect more of the same today. The Clippers have two of their top scorers possibly missing this game and that will create a lot of offensive woes for them on the road. San Antonio has been one of the best teams in the NBA at home, posting a 17-7 record against the spread.

NBA Prediction: San Antonio Spurs -8.5
