The Los Angeles Clippers (3-2) take on the Portland Trailblazers (2-2) Thursday night at 10:30 ET. NBA odds can be found at Bovada sportsbook.
The Clippers routed the previously undefeated Spurs Wednesday night in from of their home crowd, to wrap up a four game homestand. Thursday night’s trip to Portland will be their first game played outside of Los Angeles this year, as their only road game was against the Lakers. Wednesday’s game against the Spurs was clearly their best defensive effort, having allowed less than 90 points for the first time. Their offense continues to buzz, as they have scored more than 100 each game this year.
Portland is well rested, having not played since their loss to Dallas on November 5th. That game also wrapped up an early season three game road trip that took them through Texas and Oklahoma. This is their first game at home since Halloween when they upended the Lakers. Even with the travel, they have split their first four games SU and ATS, going 2-2 in both categories.
Portland is a 1 point home dog, but look for them to take full advantage of the Clippers’ tired legs. The Blazers should cruise early and win going away by 10+ points at the sportsbook.
