Los Angeles Lakers vs Los Angeles Clippers (By: FairPlayBet)
LA derby. I simply can't bet on Lakers, not after I saw them many times recently and after they really played bad in those games. As said earlier, Lakers are overrated. They were third worst ATS team and after Phoenix loss, Lakers dropped to 29th position (2nd worst ATS team). Especially they are bad in favorite role. No way I would bet them when they need to win with a margin. Also they are not complete. LeBron could have amazing game but it's still not enough in most of the nights.
Clippers on the other side just the opposite. The bookies continues to underestimates them. Yes, after those trades Clippers should be weaker and they are weaker but they don't look like that. 6-3 since then although Clippers now usually have three super young players in their starting five. Doc Rivers is amazing coach, that is well known. I was against Clippers in Sacramento but I was deadly wrong. I definitely wont bet against Clippers here against Lakers.
And yes, huge coaching mismatch in favor of Clippers. Unlike Doc Rivers who is one of league best, Lakers have Luke Walton. Give me a break. Walton is history at the end of the season and maybe even earlier if LeBron decides that way. But probably he won't cause he needs guys like Luke Walton. LeBron can't play for Greg Popovic, he needs someone who isn't in charge for anything. Maybe that's the biggest problem throughout James' entire career. Fact that his teams were without coach with integrity. In any case, that's now Lakers' problem while my problem is how to get back some of units I lost by betting on Lakers. I feel the best way is to bet against them, especially in favorite role.
