Yet another neighbour battle top our picks for tonight, this time in the West. Los Angeles Clippers visit Houston.
Houston is considered a favorite by most sportbooks, but we think that the chances are about equal here. The battle of 3rd and 4th seeds in a very competitive Western Conference. Patrick Beverley, who could stop Chris Paul, is missing, so the LA playmaker should shine tonight. Yes, Rockets won 5 games in a row, but take a look at the names of the teams they beat – Jazz, Timberwolves, Bobcats, Cavaliers and 76ers. Prior to those games they played vs Heat, Thunder & Bulls. Guess what was the outcome of those games? A really good reason to think that Clippers will stop their streak this time.
Spurs are in a greatest form recently and should get a good handicap here. You just can’t miss this bet. They are on a 16 game winning streak, just think about it. They will eventually lose, but not this time. Pelicans is not in the form to stop the powerhouse at the moment.
