Clippers at Spurs picks and predictions
Clippers 105, Spurs 101
I like the Clippers here, but not enough to consider the pricey moneyline. I feel like Wemby will create a matchup problem that I’m not sure the Clippers can cover. Head to the POINTS+ASSISTS+REBOUNDS prop section and take VICTOR WEMBANYAMA OVER 31.5 (-125).He has hit that mark in 4 of 5 games.
The Clippers have had trouble winning and covering, and the Spurs are the kind of young team that can sneak up and steal one. The Clippers would need to hit 110 points to cover this, and they’ve only done that once in the last 6 games. I love the SPURS +8.5 (-110).
The Spurs are 3rd in the NBA in pace, and the Clippers are 20th. As mentioned, the Clips have only hit 110 points once in 6 games, and they’re going to struggle with Wemby’s size altering shots in the paint. I think this goes Under by a wide margin.
Take the UNDER 230.5 (-110).
