Why should you bet on the Clippers?

Given the monster triple-double that Russell Westbrook threw down against the Clippers, it’s hard to say that any team could have beaten the Thunder in that game, unless Steph Curry was there to drain more 40-footers late in the fourth quarter and overtime. When the Clippers routed Dallas on Monday night, Chris Paul showed how the team can find another gear on defense — and DeAndre Jordan appears to be finally living up to his max deal with his control of the inside. The Cavs don’t have an answer for Jordan on the inside.

Why should you put your money on Cleveland?

When the Cavaliers are on with their offense, opposing teams suffer. They have won 3 of 4, and in each of those three wins they have put up exactly 120 points. The struggle comes with consistency, as the Cavs dropped a strange home game against a Memphis team missing four starters last week. The Clippers are a lot like Boston (whom Cleveland whipped 120-103 a couple weeks ago), so they are a team that the Cavs can beat.

Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction

I like the Clippers to defend their home court and knock off the Cavaliers, 112-109.
