Los Angeles Clippers DFS Notes

Reggie Jackson put up 12 points (5-of-13 FGs), three rebounds, 14 assists, one steal, two triples, and two turnovers in 26 minutes on Thursday. Jackson had 10 assists at halftime, which put him on pace to tie his career-high 20 dimes that he dropped in 2015. However, the game wasn’t close enough for him to remain on the court. He’d been solid over the past four games in that category with three games with eight assists and one with nine. We’ll see if he can keep those up after the long weekend off.

Los Angeles Lakers DFS Notes

LeBron James (left knee soreness) is questionable for Friday's game against the Clippers. We've been down this road with James before; the Lakers list him as either questionable or probable, only for him to come through with an exemplary performance. Expect something similar on Friday, as the Lakers look to begin their charge out of the play-in tournament portion of the Western Conference standings.

Clippers vs. Lakers NBA Betting Prediction

The Clippers are a perfect 9-0 against the Lakers the last nine times they’ve been listed as the road team in this matchup and have covered against their in-stadium rivals in five of the last six meetings. The Clippers are also 4-0 against the spread in their last four games overall, are 22-6-1 against the number in their last 29 games playing on three or more days of rest and have cashed in six of their last eight games as a road dog.
