Nets vs. Clippers Prediction
Will the Brooklyn Nets cover the point spread as a road underdog tonight when they visit the Los Angeles Clippers at 9:00 p.m. ET?
(813) Brooklyn Nets at (814) Los Angeles Clippers
Sunday, March 4, 2018, 9:00 p.m. ET
According to oddsmakers from online sportsbook YouWager, the Clippers are 7-point home favorites to beat the Nets while the over/under currently sits at 223 points.
The Clippers opened as 9.5-point home favorites but the number dropped to 7 at most online sportsbooks. As for the total, the over/under has dropped from 224.5 down to 223.
As of this writing, 59% of the betting tickets wagered at online sportsbooks are on the Clippers to cover the point spread. Meanwhile, 59% of the betting tickets are on the over.
KEY INJURY TO WATCH
Danilo Gallinari remains out for the Clippers due to a hand injury. Also out for L.A. is Avery Bradley (groin) and, of course, Patrick Beverley (knee). Jahlil Okafor (illness), meanwhile, is proable for the Nets.
In their last 16 games against the Clippers, the Nets covered the spread 12 times. They're also 7-3 against the spread in their last 10 games played on Sunday while the Clippers are just 2-5 against the number in their last seven home games. Brooklyn is struggling but I still like the Nets to cover the number tonight on the road.
OUR PREDICTION: BROOKLYN NETS +7
