8* LA Clippers (10:05 ET): Toronto will look to make it an “LA double” tonight as they face the Clippers on TNT. Sunday saw the Raptors pull off an upset of the Lakers (as 10.5-point dogs). The 121-114 win was much needed as not only did it snap a three-game losing streak, but it also kept the team’s fleeting playoff hopes alive. While I do think the Raptors are better than their overall record shows, it’s hard to look past an 11-22 SU record on the road this season. Kawhi Leonard is back for the Clippers and now it’s their turn to snap a three-game losing streak. Lay the points. 

Leonard made his official return on Saturday, playing 30 minutes in the Clips’ 110-104 loss to Denver. That loss dropped the team into fourth place in the Western Conference, even though they own the league’s second best net efficiency rating (trailing only Utah). I expect a big finish to the regular season from them, starting here, as the current three-game slide matches their longest of the season. The only previous time they were on a three-game losing streak, they responded by destroying Golden State 130-104. 

The Clippers have not shot the ball recently and have failed to score 110 points in any of the last four games. Look for that to change here as this is the #2 team in the league in offensive efficiency and they still are averaging 116.7 PPG at home. Toronto is playing its fourth road game in six days, not to mention third in the last four, and the previous opponents were Denver, Utah and the Lakers. So this is the end of a treacherous gauntlet and I can see them being out of gas. 8* LA Clippers

FAQs

What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
