NBA Betting Trends
The Thunder are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 Monday games. Oklahoma City is 2-5 in its last seven games versus the Pacific Division.
The Clippers are 6-0 ATS in their last six home games. Los Angeles is 5-1 ATS in its last six Monday games.
Whether Leonard plays or not, it's hard not to like LA here. George has been phenomenal two games in and will be extra motivated here against his former team. The Thunder have struggled mostly away from home, while the Clippers have been dominant at the Staples Center. Leonard playing would only be icing on the cake as Los Angeles has a very deep roster and can get by most nights with at least one of its stars on the floor.
