  • The Spurs went 8-0 as underdogs of 9 points or more last year.

Clippers vs. Spurs Prediction & Pick

These teams are clearly going in opposite directions right now. The Spurs have faded since their surprising 5-2 start to open the season, while the Clippers have recovered from a 2-4 start to win seven of their last 10.

This game is an ideal matchup for Los Angeles. Not only are the Clippers at home, but they're also facing the worst defense in the NBA in terms of points per game (120.2). That should give LA's sluggish offense a boost, as the Clippers rank last in scoring at 104.4 points per game.

Meanwhile, Los Angeles' second-ranked defense (105.9 PPG) should thrive against a San Antonio squad that ranks 25th in offensive rating and has lost three straight games.

Final Score Prediction: Clippers: 111 | Spurs: 104

Clippers vs. Spurs Best Bet

The Clippers are undoubtedly the better team and should win fairly easily, but they haven't blown away too many opponents this year. Only two of their nine wins have been by at least nine points, so it's difficult to trust them to cover the spread here.

As such, we're betting on a backdoor cover from the Spurs, who are coming off an 18-point loss but have yet to be blown out in back-to-back games this year.

Bet: Spurs +9 (-112)
