The over is 6-2 in Mavericks last 8 overall. The under is 21-5-1 in Clippers last 27 home games. The Mavericks are 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Los Angeles and 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings.

I'm not eager to lay chalk with the Los Angeles Clippers as much as the next guy, as their constant lineup changes and inconsistent play has me scared each time they take the floor. However, this line tells me the Mavs will be without Luka and this is a lottery team without him. If the Clippers can't win this game at home with the Mavs down one of the best players in the league, something is seriously wrong. Give me the Clippers.
