Jazz @ Clippers *10:30 EST
After losing Game 1 of this series and managing only 95 points, the Clippers know they must control the tempo in Game 2 and make sure this match-up tonight has a faster pace. At home, I expect them to be successful in achieving that. Even though the Jazz are known for their defense and playing at a slower pace, Utah has averaged 103 points per game in their last 13 games.
The Clippers average 109 points per game at home on the season. The over is 4-1 this season when Utah is off of an upset win as an underdog. Also, when the Jazz enter a game on a winning streak of 3 games or more, the over has gone 12-5 this season. The over is 10-6 this season in Clippers games when they are off of an upset loss as a favorite.
Look for the over in LA games to improve to a perfect 5-0 in Tuesday games on the season. The Clips force the tempo but the Jazz continue the hot shooting that has been a key in their current 8-2 run their last 10 games. Keep in mind, the Clippers had shot at least 50% from the field in 7 straight games before the loss to the Jazz in Game One. They respond here.
Free Pick on OVER 196
Best of luck, Scott “The Bulldog” Rickenbach
