NBA Betting Trends
The Hornets are 4-1 ATS in their last five road games. Charlotte is 1-4 ATS in its last five Monday games.
The Clippers are 4-0 ATS in their last four Monday games. Los Angeles is 4-1 ATS in its last five games versus the Southwest Division.
This is a perfect bounceback spot for the Clippers against a team that is likely going to be in the running for worst in the NBA this season and also on a back-to-back. Los Angeles does not feel to great after dropping the Phoenix game and I think it comes out and clicks on all cylinders here. The spread is big, but for good reason. Go with LA tonight.
