The Clippers are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 Saturday games and 0-6 ATS in their last 6 games playing on 0 days rest. The Nets are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 1 days rest and 1-8 ATS in their last 9 home games. The under is 5-1 in Clippers last 6 overall. The over is 5-2 in Nets last 7 overall. The Clippers are 4-17 ATS in the last 21 meetings in Brooklyn and 7-19 ATS in the last 26 meetings.
The Los Angeles Clippers are still very undermanned, and they're on the end of a back to back, spots that usually kill teams without their best players. The Brooklyn Nets are piling up the wins and have to be excited that Kyrie will soon be joining the squad. However, this line is quite steep, and while the Nets are winning, they're 6-10 ATS when favorites of five or more points. The Nets win at home by an average of just 0.8 points and just 3.5 points as a favorite. This feels like an overreaction. Give me the points.
