San Antonio Spurs vs Los Angeles Clippers 10/31/2019 – The San Antonio Spurs (3-0) will be staking their immaculate record on the line in the City of Angels as they take on the Los Angeles Clippers (3-2) on Thursday at Staples Center. The Spurs just passed their first real test of the season on Monday, edging the Portland Trail Blazers 113-110. The Clippers, on the other hand, succumbed to their second loss in three games, bowing to the Utah Jazz 110-96.

Los Angeles Clippers Betting
The Clippers are clearly not taking this regular-season grind very seriously. With Paul George still 5 to 6 games away from making his season debut, the Clippers decided to rest Kawhi Leonard against a top-notch Utah Jazz squad. The result didn’t end up well for the Clips, as they got blown away by the home team. Lou Williams scored 24 points, and JaMychal Green tallied 23 markers in the losing effort.
Players to Watch: Kawhi Leonard (27.0 PPG, 6.5 RPG, 7.5 APG), Lou Williams (22.3 PPG, 3.5 RPG, 5.3 APG), Montrezl Harrell (20.5 PPG, 6.8 RPG, 2.8 APG)

Moneyline: Despite coming off a loss, the Clippers (-139) are the NBA Moneyline picks of most online sportsbooks. However, the Clips’ winning percentage and NBA betting odds vs. Spurs could go south, if they decide to rest Leonard for the second straight game.
ATS: The Spurs (+5) have a 6-4 ATS slate in the last 10 head-to-head with the Clippers, but are winless (0-3) against the spread so far this season. Again, the Spurs have a real shot at grabbing their first ATS win if the Clippers play without Kawhi Leonard.
