The Los Angeles Clippers pay a visit to the Cleveland Cavaliers at the Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse on Monday night.

The Los Angeles Clippers have been in great shape as they’ve won nine of their last 13 games overall and they will be looking to stay hot after sneaking past the Pistons in a 106-102 road win last night. Marcus Morris led the team with 31 points on 10 of 19 shooting, Luke Kennard added 16 points off the bench, Reggie Jackson tallied 15 points with eight rebounds and nine assists while Ivica Zubac chipped in with 14 points and 15 rebounds. As a team, the Clippers shot 44 percent from the field and 10 of 30 from the 3-point line as they got off to a terrible start and managed just 39 points in the first half to trail by as many as 18 points, but they regrouped and dominated the second half by 67-49 to rally past the Pistons and escape with the narrow win.  

Meanwhile, the Cleveland Cavaliers have been in a real slump as they’ve lost eight of their last 11 games overall and they will be hoping to snap a two-game skid after getting stopped by the Bulls in a 101-91 road loss on Saturday. Darius Garland led the team with 25 points, seven rebounds and seven assists, Evan Mobley added 17 points while Cedi Osman chipped in with 14 points off the bench. As a team, the Cavaliers shot just 41 percent from the field and a miserly five of 24 from the 3-point line as they struggled to find their offense and managed just 42 points in the first half to fall behind early and things only got worse in the fourth quarter where the deficit ballooned to 18 points at one stage.

Looking at the betting trends, the Clippers are 5-2 ATS in their last seven road games, 5-1 ATS in their last six games playing on zero days’ rest and 9-3 ATS in their last 12 games overall. The Cavaliers are 2-6-1 ATS in their last nine home games against a team with a losing road record and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games overall.

Head to head, the under is 7-3 in the last 10 meetings in Cleveland, the Clippers are 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings in Cleveland and the Clippers are 5-1 ATS in the last six meetings overall.

 The Clippers are still without Robert Covington due to personal reasons, while the Cavaliers have listed Caris LeVert, Dean Wade and Lauri Markkanen as questionable. The Clippers are coming into this game in decent form and they would’ve taken plenty of confidence from their comeback win over the Pistons last night, while the Cavaliers have really cooled off lately with eight losses in their last 11 games. I get why the Cavaliers would be favored at home as they’re due for a win and the Clippers are playing their second game of a back to back set. However, the Clippers are 5-1 ATS in the last six meetings overall and I think they can pull off the upset in this one.
