Clippers 6 point chalk vs TWolves

Minnesota comes out of the All-Star break on the road and with a tough task as they take on the Clippers on Tuesday in pro hoops betting action.

The Clippers, led by Blake Griffin and Chris Paul, hurt themselves with poor free throw shooting and this can be a reason for the point spread to crrep down from an open of 7 points to 5.5 points.

The Timberwolves are 1-4 ATS in their past five meetings with the Clippers.

Of note, the total has gone UNDER in 8 of Minnesota's last 11 games when playing on the road against LA Clippers.
