Clippers vs Trail Blazers Pick
These teams split their first two meetings with the home team cruising to an easy victory on both occasions. Both teams covered the spread as favorites in those matchup and the same should happen again.
The Blazers have been woeful on the road, going 0-4. Damian Lillard has struggled this season and is averaging 18ppg on the road. He appeared to have a breakthrough at home against the LeBron-less Lakers but he’ll need to be more consistent with his shot if the Blazers are to beat the Clippers.
The Clippers may be without Kawhi Leonard but they should still get the job done at home. They found their shooting touch in their previous game, lighting up the Hornets for 18 threes. They’re in a groove at the moment and with Western Conference Player of the Week Paul George playing well, expect them to continue their winning ways.
Lastly, history is on the Clippers’ side. Los Angeles are 5-0 ATS in their last five home games against Portland.
