Clippers vs. Jazz Prediction
Will the Clippers cover as a sizable road underdog tonight when they visit the Jazz at 9:00PM ET?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Jazz are 7-point home favorites versus the Clippers while the over/under currently sits at 206.5 points. While the point spread hasn't changed, the total has moved from 207 down to 206.5.
LOS ANGELES KEY TRENDS: The Clippers are 7-1 against the spread in their last eight games playing on zero rest and have covered in four of their last five road games. They're also 4-1 at the betting window in their last five games when their opponent allows 100 points or more in its previous game but they're just 1-4 against the number in their last five games versus Western Conference opponnets.
UTAH KEY TRENDS: The Jazz are 14-6 against the spread in their last 20 home games versus a team with a winning road record. That said, they're 4-9 at the betting window in their last 13 games following a failed cover and have not covered in five of their last seven games when playing on one day of rest.
OUR PREDICTION: The road team is 6-2-1 against the spread in the last nine meetings between these two teams while the Jazz have failed to cover in 10 of their last 14 games overall. They're also just 2-8 against the number in their last 10 games coming off a loss, are 1-5 against the spread in their last six home games and are just 2-14 at the betting window in their last 16 games versus Western Conference foes. Seven is a lot to lay on a team that hasn't been covering for bettors of late.
