Stamps on Clippers odds, lines, choices and predictions

Forecast

Clippers 108, pistons 99

Money line

PASS BY.

If anything, put a little on the pistons (+520). They are too talented with Cunningham and Grant to be so many underdogs, though I still doubt they will come out on top.

Against the spread

“LEAN” to Stamps +11.5 (-107) as they have not been blown out near as much as early in the season. Detroit’s shooting, which was the worst in the NBA, has also been significantly improved.

The Pistons rank 28th in offensive rating and 29th in true shot percentage.

Over the course of their last five, they have both improved to 26th place. Of course, it’s not a crazy improvement, but over the course of their last five games, their offensive rating has been better than the Clippers.

The Pistons have lost four straight, but only one with double digits. They should be able to keep this fight close, especially with a bigger defender like Grant to put on George.

Over under

“LEAN” to OVER 206.5 (-110) as the Clippers should get back on track at home. The Clippers have an average of 105.9 points per game. match, but at home it hit almost 107.

Their 3-point percentage is also 11th-best in the association, while their free-throw percentage is 7. They should be able to abuse a soft Pistons defense that is placed in the bottom half of the league in defensive rating.

The Clippers are also number 11 in pace and should be able to control the pace in this one. Also this total steamed down from 209 according to pregame.com, so the money should be on Under, which is a good sign.

While it’s a risky game considering how much better Unders has been, Over seems like the better option, especially a “this” low.
