Why L.A. Clippers are a good bet +2.5?

Are the Clippers a safe bet in the NBA odds on Tuesday?

The Los Angeles Clippers are playing as well, if not better, than the Portland Trail Blazers. Los Angeles is on a 4-game winning streak. They’ve won 5 out of 6 and 7-of-10. Although L.A. traded away Tobias Harris, they’ve shown no ill effects of doing so.

In fact, without Harris, they appear to be a more complete team because players who weren’t getting minutes now are. The Clippers can hang with the Trail Blazers until the fourth quarter. They figure to pull off the moneyline upset on March 12.

Trail Blazers vs Clippers Final NBA Betting Analysis

On paper, Portland should easily handle L.A. However, games aren’t played on paper. The Clippers have been a solid bunch. Although they’re only 4-1 SU in their last 5, they’re actually 5-0 ATS in those same 5 games.

Los Angeles must battle Boston at home on Tuesday night. That might be the reason they’re the dogs in this. L.A. should be just fine, though, because two players off the bunch both play 25 minutes or more, Montrezl Harrell and Lou Williams. The Clippers will be fresh enough to pull off the moneyline upset.
