Point Spread: 4.50 | -110.00 LA Clippers (Away)
Clippers (+) over Jazz- I kind of like this side as the Clippers enter this series as the underdog up against Utah the No.1 seed. LA laid down the final weekend in order to face Dallas yes, but they also knew it would be Utah next. They got what the wanted and took the Mavericks down as the cream rose to the top and now they play a Utah team that has never been in this position as they were always positioned behind at least the Lakers and more. The Jazz had that incredible run that pushed them so far ahead they were just on cruise control the final eight weeks. There is one tiny little thing...the Clippers just get hammer by Utah year after year as they are not only 3-9 ATS in the last 11 meetings but in Utah they are 8-20-1 ATS in last 29 meetings in Salt Lake. Sooo, we DO have a chance! It's times like these I have to remember that 'the future doesn't equal the past' or something like that! Personally, I can say that I am 'playing' this game. Take the CLIPPERS!
