San Antonio Spurs vs. Los Angeles Clippers Free Pick 04/19/15
The San Antonio Spurs are visiting the Los Angeles Clippers Sunday for Game 1 of possibly the most anticipated best of 7 series in the first round of the NBA playoffs 2015. The Spurs are the #6 seed while the Clippers finished as the #3 seed in the West.
The Spurs finished the regular season with a respectable 22-19 road record and will be coming in with great confidence here despite losing their final game of the regular season as they had won 11 straight prior. They’re 4-0 ATS in their last four games following a S.U. loss and 12-4 ATS in their last 16 games overall. They’re also 13-6 ATS in the last 19 meetings in Los Angeles so should have a psychological advantage over the Clippers here.
The Clippers closed out the regular season in style as well by winning seven on the bounce and 14 of their last 15. They’re however only 1-4 ATS in their last five when facing a team with a winning % above .600 and 0-5 ATS in their last five at home.
As the reigning champs you just gotta love the Spurs here, and I have no problem playing them at a pick’em on the road.
