Clippers are Undefeated in the Win Column and Against the Spread

The Los Angeles Clippers are one of only two remaining undefeated teams in the NBA and have every intention of keeping a goose egg in the loss column when they hit the road for a date with the Portland Trail Blazers on Thursday.

MyBookie opened the Clips as 3-point road underdogs with a total of 211.

Shark Bites
  • The Clippers are 11-39 SU in their last 50 games on the road against the Trail Blazers.
  • The Trail Blazers are 9-3 SU and ATS in their last 12 games at home.
  • The Trail Blazers are 9-3 SU and 10-2 ATS in their last 12 games with one day off between games.

The biggest reason for Los Angeles’ early success has been its defense. The Clippers enter tonight with the best scoring defense in the Association at an average of 88 points. They’ll have their hands full against Portland, as the Blazers have averaged 112.8 points while shooting 44 percent from three-point range so far.

Blake Griffin knew he was going to have an expanded role in the offense with Chris Paul out of town, but the production from the power forward has been even better than the team expected. Griffin handed out a season-high six assists in Tuesday’s 102-84 win over the Utah Jazz and is 8-for-18 from three-point range while averaging 26.7 points and 9.7 boards in 2017-18.

After losing to Portland in the 2016 playoffs, the Clippers responded in a big way a year ago by taking all three meetings with the Trail Blazers. L.A. went 2-1 ATS in that span. The OVER is a profitable play when these teams get together, evidenced by four of the last five meetings between the squads going above the closing total.
