The Los Angeles Clippers will be on the road this Tuesday night, December 11 for a betting matchup against the Chicago Bulls that is set to take place at the United Center, with tip off schedule for 9:35 PM EST.
The Oddsmakers have set the line listing the visiting Clippers as a -3 point favorite, while posting the over/under total at 187 points.
The Clippers enter play tonight on a six-game winning streak and now own an impressive 14-6 straight up record on the season. They have also been pretty good against the spread with a 12-8 record, but are just 3-4 when playing away from Staples Center. The Clippers score 102.3 points a night, which is 6th best in the NBA.
The Bulls are starting to gel as a unit and after winning three games in a row, they now stand at 11-8 on the season, which is good enough for first place in the Central Division. However, Chicago has been awful against the spread, having produced just a 2-9 ATS record in 11 home games this season.
The Clippers are 9-2 ATS in their last 11 games followed by a straight up win, but they are only 5-21 against the spread in their last 26 games played on a Tuesday.
Seven of the Clippers last eight games have gone over the posted total.
The Bulls are 3-11 ATS in their last 14 games played against Western Conference teams and 2-5 against the spread in their last seven played on a Tuesday.
Chicago has stayed under the posted total in 23 of their last 31 games overall.
Chicago needs to start playing better at home and the Clippers need to put out better performances on the road. Tonight, the Clippers will excel and prevail for the win and point spread cover, while handing the Bulls another ATS home defeat.
