Los Angeles Clippers

The Clippers are 33-27 overall and 33-27 ATS.  The Los Angeles Clippers are a borderline playoff team, but they play in the Western Conference so it is unlikely they make it out of the 1st round of the playoffs even if they make the playoffs. They are currently in 8th place in the Western Conference and trail the Golden State Warriors by 10 games for the top spot in the conference. Los Angeles is 33-27 ATS overall, 17-15 ATS after a win, 18-14 ATS on the road and 12-17 ATS as an underdog.

Los Angeles is averaging 114.22 points per game which ranks 7th in the NBA. They are averaging 9.48 offensive rebounds per game which ranks 22nd in the NBA. They are averaging 23.27 assists per game which ranks 22nd in the NBA.

They are currently in 2nd place in the Western Conference and trail the Golden State Warriors by 2 games for the top spot in the conference. Denver is 31-27 ATS overall, 23-16 ATS after a win, 20-9 ATS at home and 23-19 ATS as a favorite.

Nikola Jokic leads the team in scoring, assists, rebounds and steals with 1,161 points, 441 assists, 608 rebounds and 80 steals. Mason Plumlee leads the team in blocks with 52.

Denver gets the win and cover at home

The Denver Nuggets are one of the best teams in the NBA while the Los Angeles Clippers are borderline playoff teams. Both teams are 5-5 ATS in their last ten match-ups while the Nuggets are outscoring the Clippers by an average of 115.70 to 110.90 points in those games. The Nuggets are 2-1 ATS in their last three meetings with the Clippers while outscoring the Clippers by an average of 113 to 110 in those contests. I look for these trends to continue with a Nuggets win and cover at home in the game on Sunday. Make sure to bet this match-up on BetDSI.
