Clippers haven’t won at Oracle Arena since 2011

The Los Angeles Clippers will try to overcome insurmountable odds when they take on the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday night. The Clippers’ track record in Oakland is — for lack of a better word — atrocious, as they’ve lost 10 straight and are 2-18 in their last 20 trips to Oracle. The Warriors opened as overwhelming favorites and are expected to welcome forward Kevin Durant back into the fold after he missed three games with a quad injury.

SHARK BITES
  • The Clippers are 0-12 SU in their last 12 games vs the Warriors.
  • The total has gone OVER in the Clippers’ last five games vs the Warriors.
  • The Warriors are 42-4 SU in their last 46 games vs divisional opponents.

If the Clippers want any shot to even cover the spread, they’ll need a superhuman effort from their B squad. Blake Griffin has been ruled out for tonight’s game with a concussion and it’s too bad because since his return from injury, he was balling out and the Clips were 3-1 SU. With him out of the lineup this season, Los Angeles has been a dumpster fire at 4-8 SU and has only topped 100 points three times in those games.

While the Warriors shouldn’t have much issue dispatching the Clippers on their home floor, spread bettors should be very cautious when backing the Dubs, especially when favored by double-digit points. They’re 27-3 SU in those games but 15-12-3 ATS, which means it’s hard to trust a payout to come your way when taking such a large spread. Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson are also ruled out for tonight's matchup so tread carefully before backing the Dubs to eat the points. 

The total opened at 225 and while such a large total can scare bettors off, if the Warriors are involved, consider the OVER. When the total opens at 225 or more in Warriors games, the O/U record is 9-3-1 in 13 games this season.
