Clippers hit the road

Los Angeles is heading out East after a pair of wins of more than 20 points at home against the Blazers and the Wizards this week. The Clips are 16-6 on the year, 3-5 on the road, 12-10 against the spread and 13-9 with the under.

The Clippers have been a strong offensive team this season, averaging 115.5 points per game while shooting 46 percent from the floor and 36 percent from the arc. Defensively, Los Angeles is allowing 107.8 points per game while holding opponents to 42.9 percent shooting. Kawhi Leonard is leading the team with 25 points, 7.9 rebounds and 5.3 assists per game. Paul George is adding 23.5 points and 6.1 rebounds per contest.

Bucks win 13th straight

Milwaukee has extended its current win streak to 13 games thanks to a 127-103 win at Detroit on Wednesday night. The Bucks have also covered in their last three, winning by at least 24 points over the Pistons, Knicks and Hornets. Milwaukee is 19-3 on the year, 9-1 at home, 11-11 against the spread and 11-10-1 with the over.

The Bucks are one of the best offensive teams in the NBA this year, averaging 121.1 points per game while shooting 48.4 percent from the floor. Defensively, Milwaukee is giving up 108.2 points per game while limiting opponents to 41.6 percent shooting. Giannis Antetokounmpo is leading the Bucks with 31 points, 13.2 rebounds and 5.5 assists per game. Khris Middleton is adding 17.4 points and 5.5 rebounds per contest.

NBA Betting Trends

Los Angeles

The Clippers have covered the spread in four straight games on two days of rest, but just 1-6 ATS in their last seven road games.

Milwaukee

The Bucks are 17-8-1 ATS in their last 26 games following a cover, but just 1-5 ATS in their last six games as a favorite of 0.5-4.5 points.

Prediction:

Milwaukee already owns a 129-124 road win over the Clippers earlier this year, but Los Angeles also didn’t have its full roster. Despite that, I like the Bucks tonight. Los Angeles hasn’t been terribly impressive on the road, already losing by 10 to the likes of San Antonio and failing to cover at Memphis in recent efforts. The Bucks are rolling right now. Aside from the win streak, but the Bucks have covered in three straight. I think they know the importance of this game after losing to Leonard in last year’s playoffs. This game means more to them than it does to Los Angeles.

NBA Prediction: Milwaukee Bucks -3.5
