LA Lakers vs LA Clippers by FairPlayBet
Obviously Lakers are bigger franchise but in recent years (even while Kobe was still playing), Clippers dominated in this H2H. And I do not see anything different in this new season. Exactly due to fact Lakers are one of best franchise ever, Clippers will use every possible chance to demolish them.
The Clippers of course are now without Chris Paul who went to Houston Rockets but they brought from Europe (from CSKA Moscow) probably the best European guard, Milos Teodosic. In the preseason games Teodosic simply continued to do what he was doing in Euroleague and I think he will fit very well in Clippers roster and will 'feed' both, Griffin and Jordan with great assists that will result in many easy baskets.
Lakers also are looking a little bit different now when they have 2nd pick in face of Lonzo Ball but IMO this (not yet 20 years old) rookie wont be on expected level, at least not in this first season.
Lakers and Clippers BTW met in preseason and back then Lakers won the game, 111:104 but really nothing to be concern about. Cause we know how preseason does not mean much. After all in the mentioned game Clippers played with their reserves. Neither of Blake Griffin, DeAndre Jordan, Milos
Teodosic, Danilo Gallinari, Patrick Beverley, Austin Rivers, Lou Williams ... took any part of the game, not one single second. Though, Lakers were too without Lonzo Ball, Andrew Bogut and Luol Deng but clearly it was much weaker Clippers team than Lakers'. And of course it is obvious that when both, Clippers and Lakers are with all best players on the floor, there is big edge on the Clippers side.
Also it should be mentioned for those who are not following NBA closely, both of these two teams are the hosts on the same place, in the Staples Center so not real home floor advantage here for Lakers who are tonight just official hosts.
Initial line moved from -4 to -5.5 but IMO it is still very good if you want to bet the Clippers. I see here double digits win for LA Clippers.
