LA Lakers vs LA Clippers NBA Basketball Betting Tips 


The LA Clippers are predicted to win when they host the LA Lakers at Crypto.com Arena for the last time in a regular season setting on Thursday. It is the 4th and final meeting for these two teams in their 23/24 series.

The Clippers will look to even up the series after the Lakers took the first two meetings on their “home court”. The most recent game played about a month ago was won comfortably by LAC in what was the midst of a 12-2 winning run. They have cooled considerably since then going 3-4 in their last 7 outings. 

The Lakers had lost 11 games in a row against their Hallway Series opponents before their win back in November and will look to take the season series for the first time since before Lob City was even a thing in 2011-2012.

My expert prediction though is that the Lakers will struggle against the Clippers in this game with LeBron James questionable to play. Both teams have been inconsistent of late but it is the Clippers that have the season form to fall back on.

  • LAC are 7th in the league in FG% going up against LAL who are 14th in the league in Opposition FG%
  • The Lakers allow their opposition to attempt the 3rd most amount of 3pt shots in the league at 37.9 per game
  • The Clippers convert their 3pt attempts at the 2nd best rate in the league with a 39.3% hit rate
  • LAL allow the most 1st Quarter points of any team in the NBA, LAC have averaged 30 first quarter points over their last 3 games.

The Clippers won the series 4-0. They hold an 8-2 record in the last 10 games but have only covered at a rate of 3-7-0. 6 of 10 games have gone Over the points total.

LA Lakers Form


The Lakers have hit a string of form in February having won 7 of their 10 games in the month. There have though been some inconsistencies in their game play especially in 1st quarters where they concede the most points of any team. 

They are 2-3 in their last five games against Western Conference opponents ranked higher in the standings.

LA Lakers Team News


Anthony Davis is expected to play as is Cam Reddish, both are listed as probable. LeBron James is questionable with a left ankle problem. Jarred Vanderbilt, Gabe Vincent and Christian Wood are all still out.

LA Clippers Form


The Clippers are on a skid at the moment compared to their high flying mid-season form. They have a 3-4 record in their last 7 games dating back to the 7th of February. 

Coach Ty Lue expressed to the media following their last start loss to Sacramento that the team would be using the two days off to recalibrate and return to the winning mindset they had earlier this year.

LA Clippers Team News


Paul George is out with knee soreness.

Verdict

Despite the Clippers domination of the Lakers in recent times whenever AD and LeBron are on the court that team is a chance to win. I believe the Clippers will have worked on their defence and scoring efficiency where they have fallen from 5th on the season to 19th over the past 3 games. 

Take them to cover the short line and for the Clippers to win the 1st Quarter by 3 or more points.
