Two bets today, both featuring teams from LA.
LA Clippers – Dallas Mavericks
Both teams with 4 wins in the last 5 games and both teams only loss was on the road to the Spurs.
Clippers really haven’t skipped a beat since losing CP3, but somehow, I doubt it will continue for ever. What is the point of having one of the best players in the game, if he has zero effect on the way the team performs?
The effect of his injury will faze off sooner or later and team will feel it.
As for Dallas, this is a very streaky team, that knows how to win in Staples Center, after doing so many times against both LA teams.
Clippers won in Dallas, in the last game of CP3, before he got injured.
Dallas remember that and they will try their best to narrow the lead Clips have over them from 3 games to only 2.
Dallas +5, 1.89 odds – 7 units play – Pinnacle
Phoenix Suns – LA Lakers
Second game for today also features a team from LA, but what a difference between the teams.
Lakers can’t stop their rivals from scoring at will, so much, that their opponents don’t mind if Lakers themselves score 100+ points.
Lakers play at crazy pace and will play one of the only teams in the league, that maybe even crazier than them, as far as the pace goes.
Since Bledsoe’s injury, Suns play at even faster tempo than before and don’t even try to slow down.
The mere pace alone should be worth here 220+ points with bad shooting percentage and it can easily go for 225 – 230 points if the shooting is half decent.
Can’t see any reason for Lakers not to score 100+ points and Phoenix not to score 110+ points.
Over 212 points, 1.91 odds – 7 units play – Pinnacle
