The Clippers are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games as a road underdog. The Jazz are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The under is 18-8-1 in Clippers last 27 overall. The over is 7-2 in Jazz last 9 overall. The Clippers are 8-22-1 ATS in the last 31 meetings in Utah and 5-11 ATS in the last 16 meetings.

The Jazz are in a shaky spot given that Mitchell is banged up and Conley is still questionable at best. The Clippers have also proven to play their best ball with their backs against the wall and they're coming off back-to-back blowout wins. There's value with the Clippers and the free bucket. However, the home team has comfortably won all four games in this series and are winning those games by an average of 12.25 points. You almost feel like you have to ride the trend here. I'll lay the bucket with the Jazz at home.
