Lakers vs. Clippers: prediction for the NBA match
The upcoming Los Angeles derby will be crucial for both teams. What to expect from the Lakers vs. Clippers game? The answer is in our prediction.
Lakers: total over 113,5 points
Lakers average 117,1 points per game
Clippers: total under 118,5 points
Clippers average 109,7 points per game
Looks like it will be a battle between two evenly matched opponents. Home advantage and successful results in recent matches make the Lakers slight favorites. But the Clippers have been more consistent throughout the season, plus some of the Lakers are currently injuried. Each of the clubs earned two victories in latest matches. Taking all that into account, we think that the Lakers will lose, but just by a narrow margin.
Our prediction - Lakers to win with a handicap of (+4,5) points
We are expecting a tight clash here. Opponents are unlikely to score many points here, especially since LeBron James is not completely healthy. Defense will prevail over the offense here.
Our second bet is on total under 230,5 points
