Wizards vs. Clippers Prediction
Fatigue could be an issue today for the Washington Wizards when they take on a well-rested starting five for the Los Angeles Clippers at 3:30PM ET.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Clippers are 6.5-point home favorites versus the Wizards while the over/under is now up to 208 after it opened at 207.5.
This is the final game of a five-game road swing for the Wizards, who must be tired. They played Golden State on Tuesday night before taking on Sacramento the following night. After one night of rest on Thursday, they were back in action on Friday night in Phoenix and now have to play a well-rested L.A. squad today before finally traveling back to Washington.
The Clippers were able to rest starters Chris Paul, DeAndre Jordan and J.J. Redick in Thursday's 119-117 loss to OKC on Thursday. All three players will be back today, as will Blake Griffin, who served the final game of a four-game suspension on Thursday. Griffin will be eased back into play, but having the big man back is an added boost for the Clippers today.
The Wizards are 3-7 against the spread in their last 10 road games and have failed to cover the number in six of their last eight games versus Western Conference opponents. On the other side, the Clippers are 4-0 against the number in their last for games overall and 8-1-1 ATS in their last 10 games versus Southeast opponents.
