Clippers are an Atrocious Bet vs Rockets

James Harden DeAndre Jordan

Bettors of the Houston Rockets love seeing the L.A. Clippers on the schedule, and for good reason. In the last five meetings between the clubs, the Rockets are a sizzling 5-0 SU and ATS. The pair of Western Conference foes will renew acquaintances once again Monday at STAPLES Center.

Shark Bites
  • The Clippers are 5-2 SU in their last seven games after a loss.
  • The total has gone OVER in seven of the Rockets' last nine games with no days off between games.
  • The Rockets are 7-2 SU and ATS in their last nine games against the Western Pacific division.

The Clips recently saw their 10-game winning streak halted at the hands of the Sacramento Kings on Saturday, but the absence of all-world center DeAndre Jordan didn’t help. L.A. went 7-3 ATS during the streak but are a mediocre 18-19-3 ATS on the year.

The Rockets (22-20 SU) have won six of their last seven games and appear to have put a rocky start to the season behind them once the calendar turned to 2016.

Both of these teams are known for their offense, which means no one would be surprised if tonight’s tilt turns into a shootout. The Clippers are fourth in the league in points per game (103.9), while the Rockets are right behind them at 103.6.

Coincidentally, the OVER is red-hot when Houston and L.A. collide, cashing in seven out of the last nine meetings between the sides.
