Clippers vs. Thunder Prediction
The best matchup in the NBA tonight takes place in Oklahoma City where the Thunder will host the Clippers at 9:30PM ET in what figures to be a tight contest.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Thunder is a 5.5-point home favorite over the Clippers after the number opened at Oklahoma City -5. As for the total, it opened at 215.5 but has been bet down to 215.
Los Angeles continues to play well without Blake Griffin, going on a 24-8 run without the star in the mix. The Clippers also continue to play very well on the road, posting a 20-10 record, which is the best in the NBA. More importantly for bettors, L.A. has covered in 12 of its last 16 road games and is 16-7 against the spread in its last 23 trips to Oklahoma City.
There's not much that separates these two teams so for bettors to be getting 5.5 points with the Clippers is a huge value. The underdog has covered in eight of the last nine meetings between these two teams and the road squad is also 9-4 at the betting window in the last 13. Take the points.
