Clippers vs. Warriors Pick

NBA Predictions: Will Warriors cover big spread versus Clippers? 2/22/18

Are the host Golden State Warriors going to race past the Los Angeles Clippers tonight when they meet at 10:30PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at YouWager, the Warriors are listed as an 11-point favorite on the spread line. The total is set at 234 points. The spread has stayed where it opened, while the total has bumped up from 233.5.

Bet Tonight's NBA Action

As of Thursday afternoon, 70 percent of bets have come in on the Warriors. Online wager info also shows that 57 percent of bets are being placed on the over.

Golden State had dominated the series with 12 consecutive victories, but the Clippers finally put an end to that with a 125-106 road victory on Jan. 10. The Warriors are 7-3 ATS in the last 10 meetings, while the over has hit six straight times and is 7-3 over the last 10.

Los Angeles won its last two games before the All-Star break and five of the past six. The Clippers are 6-4 ATS in their last 10 games, while the under is 8-2 over that stretch. Golden State had a three-game winning streak snapped with a 123-117 loss at Portland on Feb. 14. The Warriors are 5-5 ATS in their last 10 contests, while the over-under is also 5-5.

With plenty of rest on their side and being at home, I fully expect the Warriors to come out with a charge tonight on national television. They certainly don't want to be embarrassed at home by the Clippers. Look for Steph Curry, Kevin Durant and Draymond Green to all have productive nights as the Warriors cover this spread in an impressive performance.
