Bettors Should Expect Sloppy Play in Clippers-Thunder Matchup

After a 4-0 SU start, the Los Angeles Clippers are spiraling in the wrong direction in light of three straight losses and setbacks in five of their last six. The Clips will look to get back to their winning ways on Friday when they invade Chesapeake Energy Arena to tangle with the Oklahoma City Thunder.

MyBookie opened the Thunder as 6.5-point home favorites with a total of 209.5.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone UNDER in the Thunder’s last six games.
  • The total has gone OVER in 12 of the Clippers’ last 15 games in November.
  • The Clippers are 4-12-1 ATS in their last 17 games against teams with losing records.

The Thunder are another club that’s been struggling to produce, as OKC is fresh off an underwhelming 102-94 road loss to the Denver Nuggets on Thursday. After getting badly outplayed in the fourth quarter of that game, the Thunder held a postgame team meeting of more than 30 minutes.

The biggest reason for the Clippers’ struggles has been poor defense, as the club is allowing an average of 115.2 points per game over the past five contests, including 141 vs the Golden State Warriors. Starting point guard and defensive specialist Patrick Beverley will miss tonight’s game due to a knee injury, which means the time is now for OKC star Russell Westbrook to feast.

The teams split the four-game series a year ago, with each taking one on the road. OVER bettors will eagerly be anticipating this one due to the Clippers and Thunder’s penchant for going above the closing total in OKC. In the last six meetings between the clubs in Oklahoma City, the OVER is 5-1.
