Preview

The Los Angeles Clippers travel to Oklahoma City to take on the Thunder on Tuesday night. These teams met 3 times last season and the Clippers led 2-1 but the Thunder covered the spread 2 of 3 times.

 

Los Angeles Clippers

The Clippers had a great start of the season as they won their first 2 games but lost against the Suns 112-95 at home. Strangely their first 2 wins came on the road and this team struggled last season as a visitor with a 17-24 record.

Paul George who's out for this game, leads the team averaging 23.7 points, 7.7 rebounds, 4.7 assists and 2 steals over the past 3 games for Los Angeles. Ivica Zubac is leading the team in rebounds with 11.

In their last 10 games the Clippers are 7-3, averaging 115.1 points, 40.6 rebounds, 25.9 assists, 7.3 steals and 6.2 blocks per game while shooting 47.0% from the field. Their opponents have averaged 104.6 points per game.

The team acquired John Wall in the offseason who started in 40 games last season averaging 20.6 points per game and 6.9 assists per game.

Oklahoma City Thunder

The Thunder have lost their first 3 games of the season and are 0-1 at home so far ranking 5th in the Northwest division. The Thunder were 6-9 last season against the rest of the division. In their first game of the season at home they lost 116-106 against the Timberwolves.

BETTING TRENDS

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

LA Clippers are 6-2 SU in their last 8 games against Oklahoma City.

The total has gone UNDER in 12 of LA Clippers' last 16 games on the road.

LA Clippers are 1-8 SU in their last 9 games when playing on the road against Oklahoma City.

The total has gone UNDER in 6 of Oklahoma City's last 9 games.

Oklahoma City are 0-6 SU in their last 6 games.

The total has gone UNDER in 8 of Oklahoma City's last 12 games against LA Clippers.

Oklahoma City are 3-14 SU in their last 17 games at home

 

Prediction

The Clippers will be a very competitive team this year with the addition of John Wall who scored 17 points in the last game vs Suns and is not even in the starting five. The Thunder were dominated by the Twolves twice and lost by 5 points vs Nuggets. The team has struggled offensively and will face a tough defense that is allowing 106 points per game this season. The Clippers are clearly the better team here but playing on the road is always tough so I think the best play is the under.
