Blazers Seeking to Even Series With Clips

Blake Griffin Damian Lillard

It took three games for the Portland Trail Blazers to find their groove, but the boys from Rip City lit it up in a 96-88 home win over the Los Angeles Clippers in Game 3. Game 4, which takes place on Monday, will give the Blazers an opportunity to even up the series after the Clips took Games 1 and 2.

Shark Bites
  • The Trail Blazers are 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games after an ATS win.
  • The Clippers are 5-0 SU and ATS in their last five games with one day off between games.
  • The Trail Blazers are 1-3 SU and 0-4 ATS in their last four games after a win.

Home court advantage continues to be huge in this series, as visiting clubs are 0-4 SU in the last four meetings between the squads. Damian Lillard was cold in the first two affairs but put up 27 points while making 11 of 22 from the field in Game 3, while backcourt mate CJ McCollum totalled 27 points on 11-of-22 shooting in the victory.

Don’t fault Chris Paul for the loss, though. The Clippers point guard has averaged 26.3 points, 8.3 assists and five rebounds in the series.

Oddsmakers opened the total for the matchup at 206.5, a number that will greatly appeal to UNDER bettors. The UNDER is 9-1 in the Clippers’ last 10 with a closing total of 206.5 or more.
