Clippers vs. Spurs Prediction

NBA Predictions: Spurs laying too many points vs. Clippers? 12/18/17

Are the San Antonio Spurs laying too many points to the Los Angeles Clippers tonight as a double-digit favorite at 8:30 p.m. ET?

Who Oddsmakers Like: San Antonio. According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Spurs are 11.5-point home favorites versus the Clippers, who opened as 12-point road underdogs. The total, meanwhile, sits at 199.5 after hitting the board at 203.

Bet Tonight's NBA Action

Who Public Bettors Like: As of Monday afternoon, the Spurs are receiving 51% of the betting tickets and 63% of the money is also on San Antonio.

Injury Report: Lou Williams (ankle), Blake Griffin (knee), Danilo Gallinari (glute), and Wesley Johnson (foot) are all out for the Clippers. Austin Rivers, however, is probable to play after missing the Clippers' last game with a concussion.

On the other side, the Spurs will be without Kyle Anderson, who is out with a MCL injury. That said, Danny Green (groin) is probable for tonight.

Who We Like: Los Angeles. The underdog is 19-8 against the spread in the last 27 meetings between these two teams. The Clippers are also 5-0 against the spread in their last five games, are 4-0 against the number in their last four road games, and are 5-1 at the betting window in their last six games playing on only one day of rest.

Meanwhile, the Spurs are just 3-8 against the spread in their last 11 games versus Pacific opponents. They're 1-3-1 against the number in their last five games coming off an ATS loss, are winless at the betting window in their last four games overall, and are 0-4 against the spread in their last four games versus Western Conference competition. This is too many points to lay, even against a banged-up Clippers team.
