Clippers Winning and Covering At Home

The Los Angeles Clippers happily have themselves homecourt advantage in Round 1 after the Clip Show ended their season winning seven straight (5-2 ATS) games at the Staples Center. The Clippers will start their postseason by hosting the Portland Trail Blazers Sunday, a team they went 2-0 SU against at home this season.

Shark Bites
  • The visiting team is 6-2 ATS in the past eight games between the Clippers and Blazers.
  • The favored team is 16-4 SU in the past 20 games between the Clippers and Blazers.
  • The OVER is 7-2 in the Blazers’ past nine games against teams with winning records.

The Clippers had people worried throughout March, but the team picked themselves up and won 10 of their final 12 games in the regular season. Those 12 games have seen the Clippers hold their opponents to just 87 points per game, which is more than 13 points fewer than their season average.

L.A.’s defense has a tough task in front of them in the explosive Blazers team. Portland has averaged 105.1 points per game this season, the sixth highest in the NBA. Damian Lillard has struggled to put up ridiculous numbers against the Clippers, as the point guard has averaged 18.0 ppg against L.A., his worst mark against any team he has faced at least four times this season.
