The Favored Team has Not Been Covering in Clippers-Thunder Matchup

In their last matchup a little over a week ago, the Thunder and Clippers scored a total of just 168 points in a two-point Oklahoma City win at the Staples Center. The Thunder will host the Clip-show tonight looking to rebound from a sound beating at the hands of the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday.

SHARK BITES
  • The Clippers are 1-5 SU in their last 6 games on the road against the Thunder.
  • The Thunder are 8-2 SU and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games after a loss.
  • The favored team is 2-10 ATS in its last 12 games in this matchup.

The only blemish on the Clippers’ record so far this year just so happens to be that loss to the Thunder, so that should be motivation enough for Blake Griffin and his band of lovable dunkers to put on a show away from Lob City. LAC has had its struggles at Chesapeake Arena but has won and covered in four straight games since the loss to the Thunder so the Clippers will be coming into their game tonight on an absolute roll.

OKC has been the best UNDER bet in the NBA but the Thunder were exposed in their last game against the Raptors. Quick ball movement seemed to be the answer for Toronto instead of grinding with the Thunder’s bangers down low so we may see the Clippers, who have averaged the 15th-most 3-point attempts, ratchet that number way up tonight.

Both of these teams have posted UNDERs in four of their last five games in their respective matchups as both defenses have been stingy.
