Los Angeles Clippers vs Oklahoma City Thunder prediction

The Oklahoma City Thunder are going to get the benefit of the doubt because they're at home, and they've been cash cows all year with their 33-21 ATS record. I get it. However, you can argue the Clippers are the better team here, and they're making a case as the best team in the league when they're at full strength. The Clippers also beat OKC last month by 11 points. I'm not turning down a healthy Clippers team in the underdog role. Give me the free bucket.
