Los Angeles Clippers Betting

The Los Angeles Clippers are on a comeback trail after a disappointing playoff performance last year and they are days away from getting a shot of redeeming themselves. But so far, the Clippers have been playing the positioning game and seem to be more interested in locking the fourth best record in the NBA Western Conference after a loss against the worst team in the league. This team has started resting their best players and is expecting to give them more chances to recharge and catch the bigger fish. The recent loss hints that they don’t want to face the Lakers in the first round and rather see them by the conference finals.

Oklahoma City Thunder Betting

The Oklahoma City Thunder has been on a free fall for the past weeks as they are coming into this matchup on a nine-game losing streak. They are now at the third best odds to get the top pick in the NBA draft lottery and hope to increase their chances if they lose their season finale. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander has been resting for the past month along with veteran forward-center Al Horford. This team has been polishing their young stallions to get a better feel of playing heavy minutes in an actual NBA game. Lou Dort and Darius Bazley have been maximizing the playing time and increased role given to them.
