Jazz vs. Clippers Game 7 Pick
Who will come away with the big win in Game 7 when the Los Angeles Clippers face the Utah Jazz today at 3:30PM ET?
According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Clippers are favored at home, as they are getting odds of -3.5 points against the Jazz. The over/under total for the game is listed at 190.5 points.
The Clippers took Game 6 in Utah to even things up at 3-3. Utah is still 4-2 against the spread in this series, with a cover in all three games at Los Angeles. Utah is now 54-34 on the season, 24-20 on the road and 40-44-4 against the spread. Los Angeles is 54-34 overall, 30-14 at home and 42-45-1 against the spread.
The Clippers grinded out a 98-93 victory in Game 6 in Utah thanks to another great effort from Chris Paul. He put up 29 points and eight assists while DeAndre Jordan added 13 points and 18 rebounds. The Jazz were just 7-of-26 from 3-point land in the loss and only 22-of-33 from the free-throw line. Gordon Hayward put up 31 points and seven rebounds while George Hill added 22 points.
The Clippers proved they can go on the road and win, but the Jazz have played them tough in all three games in Los Angeles already. I still think the loss of Blake Griffin is going to lead to the Clippers bowing out in this series. Utah won’t continue to shoot so poorly from 3-point land and Chris Paul has to be getting fatigued trying to do it all for the Clippers.
