Suns vs. Clippers Prediction

The Los Angeles Clippers vs. the Phoenix Suns will duel things out from Footprint Center in Phoenix, Arizona, to play the final game of the season before the all-star break. What does this mean for gamblers? Well, it means that we need to bet this because after the game, we have to wait a whole week for any NBA action.

Phoenix comes into this game on the heels of a blowout win over the Kings on Tuesday night. Devin Booker led the way for the Suns despite being on a minutes restriction. Booker is expected to be back on a minutes restriction tonight. Phoenix made headlines when they added superstar Kevin Durant. The addition of Durant moved them to the favorites in the West and the second favorites to win the NBA title. Durant, however, will not make his debut for a couple of weeks as he deals with an injury, but once he gets back on the court, this team will be a scary sight.

Los Angeles, meanwhile, enters play tonight playing to the tune of a 32-28 overall record. They are fresh off a blowout win of their own over the Warriors on Tuesday, and they are hopeful of getting a win tonight and entering the all-star break with some momentum. The Clippers were active at the trade deadline, and they feel as if they have one of the deepest rosters in the league headlined by Kawhi Leonard and Paul George. Los Angeles comes into this contest as a one-point underdog. 

I can not pass up on the value tonight on the Clippers. Los Angeles has been one of the best road teams in the NBA this season, going 17-15 on the road. That is the best road record in the West. I believe the Clippers have underperformed early in the year, and in the second half, they will be the best team in the West. As far as tonight goes, this line suggests LA to me. Phoenix has been a great home team, but the line continues to move toward the Clippers. Booker will be on a minutes restriction again, and when it is time for the reserves to come in, the Clippers will have a serious advantage. Let’s close a great first half out with a bang!
