NBA Betting Trends

Los Angeles

The Clippers are 5-0 ATS in their last five games overall. Los Angeles is 5-2 ATS in its last seven games versus the Western Conference.

Houston

The Rockets are 9-2 ATS in their last 11 games versus the Pacific Division. Houston is 1-4 ATS in its last five home games.

Prediction:

A lot of money is coming in on LA due to the return of George, but this is a tough road matchup in an early start time to fit in for national television. The Clippers will be extremely good with George, but the chemistry still has to develop. There is plenty of star power on the Rockets with Harden and Westbrook too, so with the benefit of much more court time together I'm going to side with that duo tonight.
