Bet on Clippers vs. Trail Blazers

Both teams have begun the season well as they've stacked up three wins each in the loaded Western Conference. The Trail Blazers have a great homecourt advantage, but the Clippers are on a mission to prove they are still one of the better teams in the NBA. While the loss of Milos Teodosic to a foot injury is significant for LA, its defense is still there as is the imposing interior duo of Griffin and DeAndre Jordan. Take the Clippers as a small dog.
