Tonight at 7:30 EST the Clippers are in Brooklyn, New York to play the Nets. The spread currently has the Clippers favored on the road by 5 points and the total is 220.5 points.

The Clippers are just two games over .500 but are still playing for their playoff lives. They are just a half a game out of 8th place and just 2.5 games back of 6th place. They really need this win tonight.

The Nets are bad and they know it. But they are scrappy and have put together a team that is capable of winning and looks to do so in the very near future. They are on a five game losing streak whereas the Clippers are 3-2 straight up in that same span.

In the last ten head to head matchups the Clippers are 6-4 straight up but are just 2-8 against the spread.

Both teams are good at covering the spread. The Clippers are 29-25 ATS. The Nets are a surprising 33-22-2 ATS. The sports bettors have loved them this season.

I have to go with trends. The Nets can't buy a win right now. The Clippers really need wins. They are motivated. Both teams score at will and allow opponents to score at will. I am going to go with Clippers -5. I also like a small play on the Under. I am thinking Brooklyn may lay an egg and not be able to reach the century mark scoring.
