Shorthanded Clips on a Roll vs Jazz

Clippers Rivers Crawford

*Update – Chris Paul, DeAndre Jordan, J.J. Redick, Blake Griffin, Austin Rivers and Wes Johnson will all sit out tonight’s game.

There’s no other way about it — the Clippers have been absolutely laying the smack down on the Jazz over the past few seasons, winning 14 of their last 15 games against them. The wins haven’t translated to many covers though, as they’re just 4-5-1 ATS against the Jazz in their last 10 matchups.

Shark Bitess
  • The total has gone UNDER in 11 of the Jazz' last 13 games.
  • The Clippers are 5-1 SU and ATS in their last six games after a win.
  • The total has gone UNDER in seven of the Clippers' last nine games with a closing total of 185.5 or more.

With the Clippers resting a handful of key players, they opened as 7.5-point underdogs as visitors tonight. The visiting team in this matchup has been paying out, going 5-1 ATS in the last six games between the squads. As road dogs this season, the Clippers have gone 4-10 SU and 6-8 ATS.

Even though they’re contending for a playoff spot, the Jazz have been miserable against teams with winning records. Utah is an awful 1-11 SU and 2-10 ATS in their last 12 games against teams with winning records, so proceed with caution, even against the undermanned Clippers.

You might think to write-off the Clippers with their studs sitting this one out, but you should think again. With Paul, Jordan and Reddick all sitting out against a fully loaded Thunder team in OKC last Friday, they came up just two points short in a game they led going into the fourth quarter. Player prop bettors and daily fantasy players will want to give Jamal Crawford a look tonight as he went off for 32 points when given extended minutes against the Thunder.
