NBA Betting Pick: Clippers vs. Lakers

January 25, 2012

Clippers

The Los Angeles Clippers will visit the Staples Center in Los Angeles to take on the Los Angeles Lakers Wednesday night. The games between the two teams used to be characterized as walkovers for the Lakers. The Lakers have dominated the Clippers for many seasons. This season however, is different. The Clippers picked up All Star Chris Paul in the off-season and are riding high.

They currently are in first place in the division with a 9-5 record. The Lakers on the other hand have been struggling and are amidst a three game losing streak. Those three consecutive losses have dropped the Lakers to second place in the division trailing the Clippers by a full game.

As usual, Kobe Bryant leads the Lakers in three major categories scoring, assists and steals. He is currently leading the league in scoring with his 30.5 points per game average. Andrew Bynum is handling the rebounding for the Lakers by averaging 13.2 per game.

The Clippers are led in scoring by Blake Griffin who averages 21 points per contest and is a powerhouse presence in the paint as he also leads the team in rebounding. Paul leads the Clippers in assists with 8.4 per game and steals with a per game average of 2.8.

The Clippers are 8-6 ATS this season, while the Lakers are 7-11 ATS. Playing away the Clippers are only 1-3 ATS this season and the Lakers are 6-5 ATS at home thus far in the season. Head to head the Lakers are 6-4 SU in the last 10 games between the two. The Clippers are 8-2 ATS in the last 10 games head to head with the Lakers. The total has been OVER 5 times in the last 10 games the two teams have played against one another.

The Lakers will look to right the ship and win to end their losing streak. The Clippers are on a mission and want to prove to skeptics that they are real and can contend this season. Look for a tight game with the Clippers winning ATS. The total should be UNDER in a tightly defended contest.
