Los Angeles Clippers vs Golden State Warriors Best Bet: Wednesday, March 15th

We are back on the Western Playoff battlefront with a banger between the 5th-seed Warriors and the 6th-seed Clippers team. Both teams are sitting on a 36W 33L record. We give the edge to the home team due to the Crypto Arena and the injury issues GSW will be facing tonight.

Los Angeles Clippers vs Golden State Warriors Preview

Thu, Mar 16th. 02:00 am (UK time)

The Clippers have won their last 3 games and are in excellent form at the moment. They will be battling their direct opponent in a very favourable part of the season for them. It is essential to say this game is a must-win. They are trying to find their offensive rhythm since they’re averaging only 112 points per game while dishing 23.2 assists. Their offensive spacing has not been good even with Leonard and George on the court. With the most recent trades, they seem to have found their offensive flow but it is too early to say.

J. Wall is having a good season but it is not even close to his resurgence as one of the top point guards in the league. On the bright side, their defence has been rock solid. They are allowing 111.8 points per game due to their slow style of basketball. They are playing on fewer possessions per game with a combined 223 PPG total in their games this season. As the line has been opened on 234.5 we will stay off it tonight.

The Warriors are not consistent. In one game they look like title contenders, in the other, they get blown out by the underdogs. K. Thompson has not been consistent at all and has lost his all-star credit. Although they are averaging more than 118 points per game, their defence has been very bad since they’re allowing opponents 117.9. They are the team that gets blocked the most in the league, with their opponents averaging almost 4 blocks so far. If they want to make the deep playoff run they will need to improve their defence and surely Crypto Arena is not the best place to start heading in this direction.

They will be missing A. Wiggins (Personal reasons), A. Iguodala (Left wrist soreness), and G. Payton III (Muscle injury). J. Kuminga is listed as “questionable” for tonight’s game as well.

Los Angeles Clippers vs Golden State Warriors Best Bet

The Clippers have a good chance to win against a shaky Warriors team. They are on a good run and generally, they’ve won the last 4 out of 5 games against the Warriors at home. Tonight the spread line is set at 2.5 in the Clippers’ favour, but we believe with tough defence and newly acquired offensive flow they will manage to clinch the comfortable victory if the Warriors don’t show a substantial change in their game.

  • Selection: Clippers -2.5
  • Best Odds: 2.01 (Pinnacle)
  • Stakes: 3/10

Odds as of 2:00 pm March 15th 2023. Odds may now differ.
