Basketball Betting -- Warriors and Clippers - Set to Duke it Out Again?


The Clippers are 33-15 straight-up and 28-20 against the NBA pointspread. They are in a tight bunch in the West, sitting in fourth position, two games ahead of Houston, but just a game behind the San Antonio Spurs and Portland Trail Blazers. The Warriors are 27-19 straight-up, which puts them in seventh place overall in the West, a half-game behind Phoenix and a game and a half ahead of Dallas. 


It remains to be seen whether this game will be as contentious as the last one these teams played against each other, when they didn't exactly wish each other a Merry Christmas. . 


In the basketball betting odds that have been established at BetAnySports, the Warriors are laying points: 


Golden State Warriors  -6

Los Angeles Clippers  +6


Over 212 points  -110

Under 212 points  -110


When these teams last opposed each other on December 25, the Warriors were near the beginning of their ten-game winning streak, which propelled them briefly into the upper half of the Western Conference playoff queue. The game was rough, to put it mildly. NBA bettors witnessed Golden State's Draymond Green and Los Angeles' Blake Griffin getting ejected from the game, and Andrew Bogut, who was caught mixing it up with Griffin, got a flagrant technical foul. Griffin later characterized the Warriors' style of play as "cowardly," so as you can imagine, we have all the elements in place for a spirited rematch. 


By the way, in that game, Golden State (-240 to win straight-up here at BetAnySports) prevailed 105-103 on the strength of 10 three-pointers and sixteen offensive rebounds, even though they shot only 42%. There was a meeting on Halloween as well, as the Clippers won by a 126-115 score as a six-point favorite in the basketball betting lines. 


Since they ripped through ten straight wins from December 21 to January 7, things have become infinitely more difficult for Mark Jackson's team, as they have lost six of nine, with a 2-7 mark against the NBA lines. Inconsistency on the defensive end has plagued them, and it at least looks encouraging that over their last couple of games they have limited the Blazers and Wizards to a combined 35.8% from the field. 


The Clippers finished their Grammy Awards-forced road trip with wins over Chicago, Toronto and Milwaukee and then beat Washington 110-103 on Wednesday night. The Wizards, who were just coming off 38% against Golden State, shot 51% last night. But the Clips have had enough of a hot hand to overcome any defensive lapses, hitting 53.2% over their last four contests. They have also gone over the total in seven of their last nine games in the NBA odds.
