Clippers vs. Warriors Prediction
The Warriors have covered the spread for bettors in two straight games but will that change tonight when they host the Clippers at 10:30PM ET?
After opening as a 9.5-point favorite, Golden State is now -10 to beat Los Angeles tonight according to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv. As for the total, the number currently sits at 225.5 points.
The Clippers have been awful for bettors of late, covering just once in their last seven games. They've also dropped four of their last five road games against the spread and have had issues matching up against winning opponents. L.A. is just 7-15-1 against the number in its last 23 games versus a team with a winning percentage above .600.
While the Warriors have dropped back-to-back games against the spread, they're 4-1 against the number in their last five home games and are 6-1-1 against the spread in their last eight games playing on one day of rest. They're also a perfect 4-0 ATS in their last four home games versus a team with a winning road record.
While Golden State seems to elevate its play versus quality opponents, Los Angeles has proven that it doesn't raise its game (at least at the betting window). The Warriors have won five straight in this series, all of which have come by single digits. Tonight's game won't be as close as previous meetings between these two teams.
