Clippers @ Wizards

The Clippers’ woes continue; despite having their two best players back in the lineup, they dropped two games in Florida and will try to rebound today in the nations’ capitals.

The Wizards were off to a solid start, but they currently can’t even buy a win. They’ve lost their last five in a row and eight of their last nine. There aren’t any better at the spread either — only two wins ATS over their last ten.

Two terrible squads are going at it, and someone has to win — or maybe they’ll find a way to tie.

The Clippers need a win here with Leonard and Gorge on the floor, and with how terrible the Wizards have been, they should crush them.

Clippers -5.5 (-110)

The over is another trend that has been cashing for both of these teams, as the under has only hit three times in the last ten for both squads. So while LA is a low-scoring team and the total seems a little high, the trends say take the over.

Under 220 (-110)

After a slow start since returning from injury, he’ll need some big games to get this team rolling. Bettors should expect that to start today against this terrible team.

Kawhi Leonard Over 17.5 Points (-106)

Mavericks @ Bulls

This is a curious line as Dallas has started to find their stride in the season, and the Bulls have been extremely hot and cold.

While Dallas will be missing Luka Doncic, they should be able to notch a win without him, and at the very least, they should be able to cover a five-point spread against a mid-tier Chicago team. Additionally, the Bulls are 6 – 5 at home, so they don’t see much of an advantage playing at the United Center.

Dallas +5 (-110)
