Game: Los Angeles Clippers at New Orleans Pelicans Mar 22 2012 8:05PM
Prediction: Los Angeles Clippers
Grade: Loser (-110)
Reason: The Clippers got smacked around last night against Oklahoma City, their second straight poor outing. A lot of it has to do with the play of the Thunder which were coming off a loss in Utah the previous night and they have stepped it up a gear in those spots as they are now 11-1 following a loss including 10-2 ATS. It was bad timing for the Clippers which now have to pick up their own pieces and it won't be easy with this being their third game in three nights but that should not be an issue. The good news is that both recent losses were blowouts so the Clippers were able to cut down on the minutes of the starters with Caron Butler sitting out altogether. Los Angeles is 6-9 over its last 15 games and the defeat last night caused head coach Vinny Del Negro to lash out after the game and the message should have sunk in to the players. This was the fifth time this season that the Clippers have lost two in a row and in the previous four occurrences, they responded with wins to avoid three consecutive losses. New Orleans is coming off a poor showing last night as well as it lost at home to the Warriors which is a bad sign considering Golden St. has already tossed in the towel this season. The Hornets were in their unfamiliar role of favorites and dropped to 0-7 ATS this season when laying points. They have been better as underdogs but not much better at home as they are 4-13 straight up and 6-11 ATS when grabbing points at home. New Orleans 4-20 home record is the worst in the NBA. The Hornets are 0-5 ATS in their last five home games against teams with a losing road record while going 1-11 ATS in their 12 home games this season after having lost five or six of their last seven games. The Clippers also fall into a solid situation where we play on favorites with a winning percentage between .501 and .600 in the second half of the season, playing a team with a winning percentage below .250. This situation is 62-33 ATS (65.3 percent) over the last five seasons. 10* (807) Los Angeles Clippers
