Clippers vs. Suns Prediction
Following their loss to the Warriors last night, will the Clippers rebound with a win and a cover versus the Suns? Tip-off from Phoenix is set for 9:00 p.m. ET tonight.
The Clippers opened as 4.5-point favorites but with the majority of public betting tickets listed on Los Angeles, the line has climbed to 5 at most books. The total has also shot up from 224.5 at some books, all the way up to 229.5.
As of this writing, 79% of betting tickets wagered at online sportsbooks are on the Clippers. The majority of the money is also on the over for this matchup.
KEY INJURY TO WATCH
The Clippers still have several key players out, including Avery Bradley (Groin) and Patrick Beverley (knee, out for the year). Danilo Gallinari is also questionable tonight with a hand injury. For the Suns, Tyler Ulis (back) and Tyson Chandler (neck) are both doubtful.
The Clippers have owned this matchup, covering in five of their last six games versus the Suns. The favorite is also 8-1 at the betting window in the last nine meetings between these two teams while Phoenix is just 1-4 against the spread in its last five games overall. The Suns have failed to cover the spread in six of their last home home games as well.
