Lakers vs. Clippers Pick

NBA Prediction: Are Lakers and Clippers going to eclipse total? 10/19/17

Will the Los Angeles Clippers and Los Angeles Lakers open the season with a high-scoring game Thursday night at 10:30PM EST?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Clippers are a 6-point favorite on the spread. The over-under is set at 217.

The Clippers will have a new look this year after trading Chris Paul to the Rockets for a package that included Patrick Beverley, Montrezl Harrell, Lou Williams and Sam Dekker. Still around are Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan, while LA also signed point guard Milos Teodosic out of Europe. Don't expect a big dropoff despite the trade of Paul.

Maybe the Lakers won't be a good basketball team this season, but they should be improved and exciting to watch. First round draft pick Lonzo Ball will run the show at point guard, while he is surrounded by young talent including Julius Randle and Kyle Kuzma. Watch out for the Lakers in a couple years, especially if they make a big free agency splash or a major trade.

The Clippers won three of four meetings last year and the games went 2-2 ATS. The over-under also was 2-2.

Bet on Clippers vs. Lakers

The Clippers should be explosive on offense with the creative veteran Teodosic replacing Paul. And the Lakers will run up and down the court without playing a whole lot of defense this season. Look for this game to be high-scoring and entertaining for a national TV audience.
