Preview

Los Angeles Clippers continue on the road and will visit the Denver Nuggets on Tuesday night. This is the fourth time these teams face off this season, the Nuggets have the lead 2-1 in what have been very close games decided by 2 or 3 points.

Reggie Jackson is averaging 17 points and 4.8 assists for the Clippers. Marcus Morris is averaging 16.1 points over the past 10 games for Los Angeles.

In their last 10 games, the Clippers are 4-6, averaging 106.5 points, 44.1 rebounds, 24.3 assists, 7.1 steals and 5.3 blocks per game while shooting 44.3% from the field. Their opponents have averaged 110.6 points.

INJURIES: Zeke Nnaji: out (ankle), Vlatko Cancar: out (foot), Michael Porter Jr.: out (back).

BETTING TRENDS

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

LA Clippers are 4-2 ATS in their last 6 games against Denver.

Denver are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games.

The total has gone OVER in 4 of Denver's last 5 games.

Prediction

Practically all of the last 5 head to head games between these two teams have been close games decided by 6 or fewer points and with both teams struggling lately I think this should be another close game. The Nuggets are only 13-12 ATS at home this season and the Clippers have been ok on the road. Nuggets win but Clippers will cover.

PICK: Clippers +6.5 (-110)
