Clippers vs. Wizards Pick

NBA Predictions: Is total set high enough for Clippers at Wizards? 12/15/17

Will the Los Angeles Clippers and the host Washington Wizards light up the scoreboard tonight? Tip-off is at 7PM ET.

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Wizards are a 9.5-point favorite on the spread line. The over-under is set at 208 points.

Los Angeles enters with an 11-15 overall record and 12-14 ATS after a 106-95 victory at the Magic, its third straight win. Washington is 15-13 overall and 14-14 ATS following a 93-87 home win over the Grizzlies. The Clippers edged the Wizards at home by a count of 113-112 on Dec. 9. Los Angeles is 2-1 straight up and 3-0 ATS in three meetings since the start of last season. The over is 3-0.

The Clippers were paced by Lou Williams with 31 points, eight assists and three rebounds in the win at Orlando. DeAndre Jordan tallied 16 points, 20 rebounds, three assists, two steals and two blocked shots. Sam Dekker added 12 points and four boards off the bench. Los Angeles outscored the hosts 61-55 after halftime.

Bradley Beal registered 18 points, seven assists and four rebounds in the win over Memphis. Otto Porter Jr. contributed 14 points, nine rebounds and two blocked shots. John Wall added 13 points, four rebounds and two assists in his return to action from a knee injury. Washington led 41-29 at halftime.

The over is 4-0 in the last four meetings. The over is 7-1 in the last eight Los Angeles games against teams with a winning record.

Bet on Clippers vs. Wizards

Both teams have welcomed the return of point guards, Milos Teodosic for the Clippers and the aforementioned Wall for the Wizards. Teodosic is expected to sit out tonight, but that will only hand the offense over to Williams and he is capable of huge scoring outputs. Wall will take the Washington offense to the next level, with the rust coming off in the game against defensive-minded Memphis. Look for both teams to find easy offense in this contest, sending the total over the projection.
