Clippers vs. Warriors TV Coverage: TNT

The Clippers went into the All-Star break playing really well as they had won four straight even without Chris Paul but they have very little chance to win this game on Thursday night. The Warriors are 47-9 overall and 24-3 at home.

Los Angeles simply doesn’t match up well with Golden State and without Paul in the lineup it is even worse so it would be a major shock if this game is even competitive.

The Warriors have won the last nine games in this series and they have gone 6-3 ATS with the last two going over the total.

Clippers vs. Warriors Free Picks

It is hard to make any case for taking the Clippers in this game as they have been crushed three times already this season by the Warriors, losing 115-98, 144-98 and 133-120. I will lay the points and take the Warriors. Make sure to check back for odds at BetCris.

Clippers vs. Warriors ATS Pick: Lay the points with Golden State at BetCris.

Celtics vs. Raptors TV Coverage: ESPN

Two of the top four teams in the Eastern Conference meet on Friday night as the Celtics visit the Raptors. Boston is just three games out of first place in the East while the Raptors are seven games back. This is the first game back for both teams so there is no edge in terms of rest.

Toronto has won six of the last ten in this series with four of the last five going over the total but Boston did win the last meeting in early February in Boston by a score of 109-104. Toronto has won 8 of the last 10 at home in this series with three of the last four going over the total.

Bulls vs. Cavaliers TV Coverage: ABC

The Cleveland Cavaliers are big favorites on Saturday night as they host the Chicago Bulls. The Bulls are hanging onto a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference but they don’t have the look of a team that is going anywhere as they still have a losing record. The Cavaliers have the top record in the Eastern Conference but they have lost the last three games against the Bulls.

This is a back-to-back for the Bulls as they hosted the Suns on Friday night. The Cavaliers have had one day off as they hosted the Knicks on Thursday.

Chicago has six of the last ten against Cleveland including both of the meetings this season as they won 111-105 at home and 106-94 in Cleveland.

I will go against the trends in this game and lay the points with the Cavaliers. Make sure to check back for odds at BetCris.
