Despite monster performances out of Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant, the Thunder have been a poor investment for bettors of late. They’re 2-8 against the spread in their last 10 games coming off a win and have failed to cover the spread in 10 of their last 13 road games. They’re just 2-7-1 ATS in their last 10 games playing on only one day of rest as well.
On the other side, the Clippers are 12-4 at the betting window in their last 16 games playing on one day of rest and are 13-3-2 against the number in their last 18 games when failing to cover the spread in their previous contest. They’ve also covered in six of their last seven games versus a team with a winning record, indicating that they’re playing up to their competition.
L.A. is 7-3 in its last 10 games and is at home. This will be a close game throughout but the Clippers should eek out the win.
