Who's Got the Betting Edge in Jazz-Clippers Game 7?

While the second-round of the NBA playoffs gets underway in Boston, the Los Angeles Clippers and Utah Jazz have some unfinished business. With Game 7 of their first-round series set for Sunday, sportsbooks opened the Clips as 3.5-point home favorites with a total of 193.

Shark Bites
  • The Jazz are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road games.
  • The road team is 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings.
  • The UNDER is 6-1 in the last 7 meetings in Los Angeles.

Jazz big man Rudy Gobert twisted his left ankle in Friday’s Game 6 loss and X-rays ruled out a serious injury, which means he’ll be available for Game 7. Gobert’s importance to his team is especially evident since he’ll be matched up with Clippers center DeAndre Jordan, who’s averaging 14 points and 13.8 rebounds in the series while recording six consecutive double-doubles.

Utah hasn’t won a playoff series since 2010 and squandered a big opportunity by dropping Game 6 at home. The Jazz received poor performances from series star Joe Johnson (3-of-9 shooting) and backup shooting guard Rodney Hood (four points on 2-of-10 shooting).

The winner of this series faces the Golden State Warriors on Tuesday. The UNDER continues to pay out when these teams collide in L.A., as six of the last seven contests between the squads have gone UNDER in Tinsel Town.
