NBA Preview: Clippers vs. Trailblazers (Dec. 12)

NBA Clippers @ Trailblazers

The Los Angeles Clippers are horrible. The Portland Trailblazers are pretty darn good. This should be a good old fashioned sports betting lock, right? Maybe not. The Clippers are a terrible team but they do have Baron Davis in the back-court. Davis is averaging 27 points and 7 assists.    Those are gaudy numbers. Online NBA betting fans know that Davis is legitimately that good because he has to pass the ball to someone else in order to get assists and there isn’t a whole lot else on this Clippers’ team worth discussing. Then again, Zach Randolph and Marcus Camby have been pleasant surprises for L.A.’s other team. They just don’t win games. Against the BetUS online betting spread the Clippers are 8 and 13.

The Portland Trailblazers have one of the best power forwards in the league in the 22 points 6 rebounds a game LeMarcus Aldridge. Three years ago I saw the potential in this guy. He’s the reason the Blazers have been good this season. Not Greg Oden. Portland has a straight-up record of 15 and 9. Their record against the BetUS online wagering spread is decent at 11 and 13. More importantly, they are a terrific home team going 5 and 3 against the spread since the season started.

Here are the BetUS online sportsbook betting odds for this game.

Los Angeles Clippers + 9 ½ – 110 O 188 – 110
Portland Trailblazers – 9 ½ – 110 U 188 – 110

Here are a few online wagering trends that might help us find a good online bet in this game.

The Los Angeles Clippers are 4 and 1 against the spread in their last 5 games as the underdog.
The Under is 4 and 1 in the Los Angeles Clippers last 5 games overall.
The Portland Trailblazers are 9 and 3 against the spread in their last 12 games at home.
The Under is 5 and 1 in the Portland Trailblazers last 6 games at home.

I’m not sure why the Clippers are so freaking awful. I believe it has to do with the stigma of being named after a rich man’s boat. I mean, come on! How elitist is that?

Anyhow, I don’t think it’s possible to take the Clippers on the BetUS online betting spread at + 9 ½. But I also don’t think it’s possible to lay money on the Blazers at – 9 ½.

That means I have to get smart and just go with my instincts. My instincts tell me that the best online bet in this game is on the under at 188. I don’t believe the Clippers sniff 94 points. Then again, I don’t think the Blazers do either. This could be one of those 88 to 84 games.

Clippers vs. Trailblazers Prediction:

I’ll make an online bet on the Clippers vs. Trailblazers game to go under the BetUS Total of 188 points.
