The Los Angeles Clippers are due for a bounce back performance and usually win the games they’re supposed to win comfortably. The Toronto Raptors are piling up the losses left and right, and now it seems like all of their key players are injured. It feels like the Raptors have checked out on the season and are just eager to get back to Canada. Massive number, but backing the Raptors and their banged up roster isn’t an option. It’s the Clippers or pass for me.
Los Angeles Clippers -11.5
