San Antonio At L.A. Clippers: Online Betting Analysis and Game Preview

When: 10:30 PM ET, Tuesday, April 28, 2015 Where: Staples Center, Los Angeles, California TV: TNT, FSN Southwest (San Antonio), Prime Ticket (Los Angeles) NBA Odds: Los Angeles -2, Over/Under: 205 The Clippers ad CP3 both bounced back from their humbling 100-73 Game 3 home loss to San Antonio on Sunday. After scoring just seven points in his previous game, Paul scored a game-high 34 points on 11-of-19 shooting in Game 4, although it was little-used backup Austin Rivers that may have saved the Clippers’ season with a stunning 16-point effort off the bench. Now in his third year, the often-maligned son of head coach Doc Rivers, commented on his performance afterward. “This is something I know I can do,” Rivers told reporters. “It wasn’t a surprise for me. Obviously it is to you guys but I’ve been working so hard and this team has been working so hard.” All-star power forward Blake Griffin added 20 points and 19 rebounds in the win. The Clippers regained home-court advantage in the series, but the Spurs don’t seem very worried according to Hall of Fame-bound power forward Tim Duncan. clippers-spurs-online-betting “It’s on the road, it’s on their home court,” Duncan told reporters. “It’s good for them obviously but we’ve won there before. We know how to win on the road.” The Spurs got a team-high 26 points from Kawhi Leonard in the loss with Duncan adding 22 points on 8-for-13 shooting and Tony Parker chipping in 18 points. San Antonio head coach Gregg Popovich was disappointed with his team’s effort in Game 4 and did not hide his feelings afterward. “We didn’t execute sharply enough in what we wanted to do strategy-wise or just in general basketball play. I’m just more disappointed in the lack of focus than anything else, and not being as sharp in a lot of situations.”

Game Analysis

Make no mistake about it NBA betting buffs, not only can the San Antonio Spurs win in Los Angeles, but I expect them to do just that tonight, although I will admit that I’m expecting a flat-out thriller that comes down to the final possession or two for each ballclub. clippers-spurs-nba-betting I like the fact that the Spurs are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games following an loss and given their collective ages, a surprising 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games playing on one day of rest. I know ‘Timmy’ and company have gone 2-5 ATS in their last seven games, but I’m backing them to win and cash in seeing as how the Clippers are just 2-5-1 ATS in their last eight games and an awful 1-6 ATS in their last seven home games. With the Underdog going 12-4 ATS in the last 16 meetings, I say back the San Antonio Spurs to win and narrowly cash in!

The Pick: San Antonio Spurs +2 Points

NBA bettors that like to et the Over/Under Total should know the Over is 5-2 in the last seven meetings in Los Angeles and 9-4 in the last 13 meetings overall.
