10* COACHS CORNER (HAVE WON 5 OF L6 DAYS!)
(NBA) Toronto vs. LA Clippers,
05/04/2021 10:00 PM, Score: 100 - 105
Point Spread: -10.00 | -110.00
LA Clippers (Home)
The set-up: The Clippers have lost three straight games. They've lost four straight against the spread. They haven't faced the Raptors yet this year, but with the Lakers and Knicks up next, I expect the home side to lay the foot on the gas from start to finish in this one. Note as well that the Clippers are 7-2 ATS in their last nine after three or more straight ATS/SU losses in a row.
The pick: After three straight losses, the Raptors got a huge game from Kyle Lowry to beat the Lakers 121-114 here two nights ago. With a game at home vs. Washington up next though, this sets up not only as a letdown spot after beating the Champs, but also a "look ahead" spot as well. That = trap. Look for the hungry and focussed home side to take advantage.
This is a 10* COACHS CORNER on the Clippers.
