The Clippers are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 home games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The over is 13-5 in Raptors last 18 road games. The over is 6-2 in Clippers last 8 overall. The Raptors are 6-2 ATS in the last 8 meetings in Los Angeles. The under is 16-5 in the last 21 meetings in Los Angeles and 6-2 in the last 8 meetings.
It's hard to back either of these teams with confidence, given the constant ups and downs. However, the Los Angeles Clippers have shown more signs of life lately, and it feels like they're close to putting things together. The Toronto Raptors are in a bit of a defensive funk, and that's not ideal when going up against the firepower the Clippers have. We're not laying much. Give me the Clippers at home.
