NBA Betting – Can the Bucks Cover Another Big Number Against the Clippers?

There have been a lot of pro basketball experts, including TNT commentator Charles Barkley, who truly believe that the Los Angeles Clippers are a genuine contender to win the Western Conference this season. And by definition, any team that can run through the gauntlet in the West has to have a pretty good shot at winning the world championship. On Monday night, the Clippers will be in action against the Milwaukee Bucks in an NBA betting encounter that tips off at 10:35 PM ET at the Staples Center.

The Clippers are very sharp right now; they have won 12 out of their last 13 games and sport a record of 49-21 straight-up, which has them in third position in the West. They have also proven to be a very profitable team for basketball bettors, with a pointspread mark of 39-30-1. The Bucks would love to be able to catch the Philadelphia 76ers so that they can avoid having the worst record in the NBA. Currently they are 13-57 straight-up. Philadelphia is 15-55 and is on a 24-game losing streak at the moment. In other words, we’ve got a real horse race going at the bottom, as well as the top.

In the NBA betting odds that have been posted on this game by the people at BetAnySports, the Clippers are, of course, laying a whole lot of lumber:

Los Angeles Clippers -16.5
Milwaukee Bucks +16.5

Over 213.5 points -110
Under 213.5 points -110

The Clippers have mangled the Bucks lately, winning three meetings by a total of 70 points since the beginning of last season. In all three of these meetings, they have shot 54% from the field. We wonder what is going to change that dynamic, considering that Milwaukee has allowed the opposition to make more than half its shots in four of its last five games. This team has actually been competitive more often than not lately, covering 16 of their last 24 games against the NBA betting odds. And they have been very scrappy as the visitor in losing against the Warriors, Pacers and Trail Blazers.

But they were pretty awful last night, as they allowed Sacramento to shoot 51% in a 124-170 defeat. Milwaukee never even had a chance to get out of the starting gate, as they were trailing by 23 points at the end of the first quarter. And when you look at this team when they are playing in the second end of back-to-back situations, they have covered only six out of 18 in that circumstance.

Milwaukee, as BetAnySports customers know, is often behind the eight ball when it comes to hitting the glass. They are one of the worst rebounding teams in the NBA, and they have the very formidable duo of Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan to contend with here. But the Clippers who has had the hot hand over the last couple of games has been Chris Paul, with 57 points compiled against Denver and Detroit. It was unfortunate that the Clippers have their 11-game winning streak snapped in the Mile High City, but the game they won against Detroit two nights ago is the only time they have played the last seven days, so you will be looking at a fresh crew.

One trend NBA bettors may want to take a long look at is the fact that the Clippers have played 10 of their last 11 games under the total, as it has been posted in the basketball betting lines at BetAnySports. It might take a very good evening defensively for Milwaukee to stay in this game, considering that they score less than 97 points per game on the road.
