Boston Celtics (218) vs. Los Angeles Clippers (-5.5) Preview & Prediction (11/20/2019)

The Boston Celtics will be on the road Wednesday taking the court against the Clippers at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. The Celtics will be looking for back-to-back wins following a 99-85 win in Phoenix against the Suns on Monday. The Clippers will be looking to make it three straight wins after beating the Oklahoma City Thunder in Los Angeles their last time on the court.

The Boston Celtics are now 11-2 on the season following a 99-85 win against the Suns in Phoenix. Jayson Tatum was able to drop 8 of 16 from the field to lead the Celtics with 26 points. Brad Wanamaker was able to pass the ball for a team-high six assists while both Tatum and Daniel Theis pulled down 11 rebounds. Boston had five different players with at least 10 points in the game.

The Celtics have been good for an average of 112.6 points per game on the offensive end of the court while hitting 44.7 percent from the field. They have been able to pass the ball for an average of 24.5 assists per night while grabbing 46.7 rebounds. Defensively, they allow an average of 104.2 points per game to their opponents. Boston has been taking the ball away for 8.4 steals every time they are on the court to go along with 6.0 blocks. They will be looking for a second win in a row.

The Los Angeles Clippers are now 9-5 on the season following a 90-88 win at home against the Oklahoma City Thunder. Montrezl Harrell was able to knock down 13 of 20 from the field to lead the Clippers with 28 points. Lou Williams was able to pass the ball with a team-high nine assists while Harrell pulled down 12 rebounds. The Clippers had four different players finish the game with a double-digit scoring night.

The Clippers have been able to put the ball in the net for an average of 112.8 points per game this season while shooting 46.0 from the field. L.A. has passed the ball for an average of 22.4 assists per night with 48.2 rebounds. On the defensive end of the floor, Los Angeles gives up 106.6 points per night. The Clippers average 7.0 steals per game to go along with 5.8 blocks. They will be looking for a third consecutive win.

As of late Tuesday night, both the point spread and total were off for this game. I’m liking Boston to win on the road, here. They are solid when it comes to moving the ball and I think that is the key to beating the Clippers. Kawhi Leonard is out for this game and Los Angeles simply isn’t the same team without him on the court. I like the Celtics getting the win.

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN? (CFL, CFB and NFL)
C.O.C. = (Chances of Covering) – The ‘C.O.C.’ percentage is based on a teams win/lost record from a ‘Point Spread’ perspective and not their ‘straight up’ (SU) record, using the teams short and long-term win/lost record. After we process it through our ‘math predictor’, we then provide a ‘CHANCES OF COVERING’ percentage for that team in their next game, which let’s you know if there’s any value on betting that team.
C.O.G.O. = (Chances Game Going OVER) – The ‘C.O.G.O.’ percentage is based on both teams OVER/UNDER record, using both teams short and long-term OVER/UNDER records. After we process it through our ‘math predictor’, we then provide a ‘CHANCES OF COVERING’ percentage for that game, which let’s you know if there’s any value on the OVER in that game.
*Note: If there’s a 60% chance of the game going OVER, that means, there’s a 40% chance of the game going UNDER.
MSV = (Market Spread Value) – The MSV is our researched and calculated line compared to the bookmaker’s line. When calculating the MSV, we look for the margin of error between the bookmaker’s line, the final result of a game and then produce the value of what the line should be in the next game for both teams.

VI = (Value Index) – The Value Index is the current psychology of the betting public, based on a teams 3-game cycle.

  • BULLISH = Team is either (3-0) in their last 3 games.
  • NEUTRAL = Team is either (1-2 or 2-3) in their last 3 games.
  • BEARISH = Team is either (0-3) in their last 3 games.

L.O.A. = (Law of Average) – The “Law of Average” edge is based on the 50/50 theory. Play on a team that lost against the spread (ATS) or straight up (SU) in their last game, vs. a team that won against the spread (ATS) or straight up (SU) in their last game.
