Los Angeles Clippers vs Utah Jazz (By: Miyagi)

The Clippers are on a three-game losing streak while they lost back to back home games to teams that have struggled big time on the road (Pistons, Pelicans) which is quite surprising given the fact that the Clippers are very strong at home. The main issue for the Clippers in those last two home games has been their offense as they failed to score above 104 points in both games although they average 116 points per game at home this season.

The Jazz are in great shape, with 4 straights wins (all at home) despite the fact that they run out of options at guards with Exum, Rucio, and Neto remain sidelined. They have a decent record on the road (12-13) though most of their wins were against bottom half teams.

This is the 4th game in 6 days for the Jazz who are on an 8-man rotation as of late.

This will be a tough game for the Jazz as the Clippers are a very strong team at home and very dangerous considering their depth. The Clippers' bench is by far the highest scoring in the league with their 52 points per game (and they have the two top scorers coming from the bench, Lou-Montrezl) while the Jazz's bench, on the other side, averages just about 37 points per game while they are also shorthanded! It's going to be very tough for the Jazz, despite their strong defense, to counter Clippers' production while they quite certainly will lose the battle of the benches, so, all things considered, there is no way I would trust them here.

Your picks are great, really accurate and meaningful. But maybe 3-4 selections a day is a lot, in my humble opinion if you took just 1 pick a day your ROI and strike rating would be better

Thanks, Morfeo. Yeah I know its a lot but it's not tough, perhaps I have to prepare better.
And they also have to stop bullshitting me LOL. Let me share this one: Yesterday i had bets on assists and triple-double for Simmons. the guy needed just one assist for his triple-double and what did his coach do??? He pulled him out in the third quarter earlier than any of his teammates and never brought him back. I mean, seriously dude??? That happens almost every day, to an extent that it has become suspicious but anyway.....

It's old narrative in NBA on Simmons being better out late in the game, when he's becoing a liability due to his lack of shooting.
