Vegas: Clippers -5.0, OU: 220.5


Qs Quote:
Despite the season starting sooner, it has still been a long way coming. Even moreso when you consider that nearly every other franchise has already played their first games. Injuries prevented the Clippers from consistent play during the preseason, which was needed with the roster turnover coming in as only Sacramento retained less minutes per game.
Beverly versus Lonzo will be a match-up to keep an eye on, as will Lou facing off with the team that traded him last year.

Qs Quote:
A rematch of last years First-Round series has both teams looking different, as both sides, arguable, franchise players are elsewhere. The biggest test for both sides this early on, as the Clippers haven't faced a team with the defense that Utah brings to the table.

Vegas: Blazers -2.5, O/U 215


Qs Quote:
Clippers first (true) road game of the year is against a Blazer side that seeks to show the league that they are legit. Vegas agrees that the Clippers have an uphill battle as this is the first time they are considered to be the underdogs. Beverly is going to need help from Austin to slow down the dynamic duo of Lillard & McCollum.

Vegas: Clippers -7, O/U 207.5


Qs Quote:
The league's last undefeated team has a chance to extend their record to 5-0 when the Pistons come to town on Saturday evening, as DeAndre Jordan and Andre Drummond are sure to put up a fight against each other. The two big men, who were rumored to be involved in a trade for one another this past summer, play similar roles for their sides as defensive anchors that love to crash the glass. DeAndre leads the league with 18.3 rebounds a night, Drummond is third at 14.2. Jordan's 5.8 offensive rebounds also leads the league, edging the second place Drummond's 5.4. Having won 13 of the past 15 in the series, can't see Los Angeles giving this one up.

Qs Quote:
Two losses ended the Clippers undefeated start, the last of the league and now, a perfect opportunity to get some wins comes up as the putrid Mavericks come to town. Not to be overlooked, Dallas' lone victory came over the Memphis Grizzlies, the top of the West at this point. A perfect chance to run off a victory or two.

Qs Quote:
An early tip off has Lob City hosting Grind City, as the Clippers look to continue their solid start over a battered Grizzlies side. Injured or not, Memphis is not a side to be taken lightly as Fizdale has done a spectacular job in keeping the side competitive. Clippers are still waiting for Gallinari to get going, and this is as good a chance as any to do so.

WHERE: Staples Center in Los Angeles, CA
MEDIA: Fox Sports Prime Ticket
Vegas: Clippers -5.5, O/U 207.5


Qs Quote:
Back-to-back early games make little sense, but expect the Clippers to be ready for the Heat, unlike the date against Memphis a day prior. With 8 of the next 9 on the road, the Clippers need to get some momentum going, and a home mark of 3-3 to this point is disheartening. Need Jordan to outboard Whiteside and not let Waiters get going.

Q's Prediction:
Clippers Win 111-95
Q's Prediction Record (vs Spread): 5-3 (6-2)
