BETTING TRENDS

Washington are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games against LA Clippers.

Washington are 1-6 SU in their last 7 games against LA Clippers.

Washington are 0-5 SU in their last 5 games on the road.

The total has gone OVER in 9 of Washington's last 9 games when playing on the road against LA Clippers.

LA Clippers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games.

The total has gone OVER in 8 of LA Clippers' last 9 games against Washington.

The total has gone UNDER in 6 of LA Clippers' last 6 games at home.

 

Prediction

The Wizards continue to struggle and are on an 8 game losing streak, they have also failed to cover the spread in 7 of those games. The Clippers have been playing better lately now that they have Leonard and George back with the team and are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games. The Clippers are by far the better team but they have many players in jeopardy for this game and the Wizards are hoping that Bradley Beal suits up for this one. Give me the Wizards with the points.
