Washington Wizards vs Los Angeles Clippers 12/01/2019 – The Washington Wizards (6-11) will wrap up their L.A business trip on Sunday with one more showdown against another Western Conference elite, the Los Angeles Clippers (14-6), at Staples Center. The Wizards opened as the overwhelming 12.5-points underdogs across all major sports betting sites in the United States. But the Clippers could enter the game a lot more susceptible to an upset after falling to the San Antonio Spurs in their last outing.

Kawhi Leonard recorded 19 points, 7 rebounds, and 7 assists, while JaMychal Green chipped in with 16 points and 8 boards off the bench. Paul George, the other half of the Clippers’ dynamic duo, only came up with five points on 2-for-11 shooting to go along with 8 rebounds and 3 assists.

Washington Wizards vs Los Angeles Clippers Betting Picks
Despite the shocking loss in San Antonio, the Clippers should be a solid NBA Moneyline pick because days like that casually happened in a grueling 82-game schedule.
Moneyline: The Wizards are actually 2-1 against the Clippers in the last three games. Still, nobody expects Washington to beat this Clippers team loaded with scorers and perimeter defense, especially after coming off a loss.
ATS: The Wizards absorbed a 22-point beat down courtesy of the Lakers. I expect them to lose again by at least 20 points to the Clippers, who should easily cover the 12.5 points spread.
TOTALs: The total opened at 238 points. The Clippers were held down below 100 points for the first time in six games. Don’t count out a low-scoring ball game this time because the Clippers will battle the Wizards in a fast-paced, high-scoring ballgame. I pick OVER.
Score Prediction: 125-112 Clippers
