We should be in for a fascinating match when the LA Clippers host Miami Heat on Sunday evening. The Clippers have shown good form at home with 8 wins in their last 10 matches, the most notable being a 100-86 win over the Golden State Warriors in late December. Their most home recent loss was against the high flying Atlanta Hawks, after which they bounced back to smash the Lakers 114-89.
The Miami Heat are on the opposite end of the spectrum, they’ve lost 8 of their last 10 matches but recently managed to snap a 4 game losing streak when they beat the Brooklyn Nets in a tight 88-84 game. The Heat have been somewhat of a mixed bag on the road, winning 2 of their last 5. It’s worth mentioning that their last 3 road losses have been by 20 or more points and their last 2 wins by 5 points or less.
Los Angeles Clippers 2/11, Miami Heat 38/10
Los Angeles Clippers –10.5 17/20, Miami Heat +10.5 15/20
Over 200.5 points 17/20, Under 200.5 points 8/10
Miami’s inconsistency on the road is hard to ignore, when they lose they tend to lose big. I’m backing the LA Clippers to cover the -10.5 handicap at home in a match that I also expect to go under the posted total.
