Why L.A. Clippers are a good bet +9 ½?
Utah is very difficult to beat at home, but the LA Clippers could cover the spread. First, 9 ½ points is a lot. Second, the Clippers are 3-1 ATS in their last 4 games. Finally, the Clipps are 18-15 ATS in their away games this season.
L.A. doesn’t have to beat the Jazz. The Clippers have been hot against the spread and are getting way too many points here. They’ll cover.

Why Utah Jazz are a good bet -9 ½?
The Utah Jazz only 3-2 SU in their last 5, but they’ve gone an awesome 4-1 ATS. The Jazz, like many teams in the NBA, steps it up big time at home, going a healthy 16-12-1 ATS this season.
The real reason to back the Jazz is because Rudy Gobert should dominate the Clippers in the paint. Neither Ivica Zubac nor Montrezl Harrell will keep up with Gobert. Rudy averages 15.4 points and 12.9 boards. He shoots 65.4% from the field. He’ll dominate on Wednesday night.
