8 games tonight, but most very hard to predict, so I will focus on one bet that I like the most here.
LA Clippers – Indiana Pacers
Utah Jazz – Portland Trailblazers
Clippers off two losses and now they trail half a game behind Memphis and a game behind Denver. If they lose tonight and Memphis wins against depleted Spurs, they will trail game and a half behind Memphis and they really look to avoid that.
Clippers are 28 – 8 at home, while Pacers are 18 – 19 on the road. Pacers done actually not too badly against West Coast rivals, but I think this is huge game for the Clippers, too big for them to lose.
As for Utah, this is more anti Portland play. Portland has the worst bench in the league and with Aldridge out and Battum keep playing hurt, this team just in all sorts of trouble.
They just lost to Utah at home and somehow, I just can’t see Utah, that is tied to the Lakers for the final eighth spot in the West, losing this one.
I would say that such parlay should win in 75 out of 100 times, so at 1.89 odds, I will take this bet.
Clippers + Jazz to win, 1.89 odds – 7 units play – 5Dimes
Best of luck everybody!!!
