Warriors at Clippers picks and predictions
Clippers 123, Warriors 117
The Warriors are awful on the road. They are only 7-26 away from home and have lost 8 straight road games. Their 1st game at Los Angeles was a 134-124 loss on Valentine’s Day.
The Clippers are not great at home, going 18-15 there so far. But they are riding a 3-game winning streak, all at home.
I like the home team here, but because the spread is fairly short and the Warriors perform poorly on the road straight up and against the spread, go with the ATS bet for better value.
Against the spread
Golden State is not much better on the road against the spread. They are only 8-23-1 ATS on the road this season. They Clippers are 15-18 ATS at home.
The Clippers’ last 22 wins have been by at least 5 points, the question is whether they will win the game. The trend is that if they win, they will cover Wednesday’s spread.
BET CLIPPERS -2.5 (-105).
The earlier matchup between the two teams in Los Angeles had 258 total points, but the 2 games at Golden State were 211 and 231 totals.
The Over is 3-0-1 in the Warriors’ last 4 games and 5-0-1 in their last 6 games following an ATS win. The Over is 5-1 in the Clippers’ last 6 games playing on at least 3 days’ rest.
BET OVER 237.5 (-115).
