Clippers Vs Warriors | 2019 NBA Thursday Night Betting Odds & Pick
Los Angeles Clippers At Golden State Warriors Pick
When the Los Angeles Clippers landed Kawhi Leonard in free agency, it was with the sole purpose of taking over the league.
Kawhi and the Clippers already sent a huge message to the NBA on Tuesday after beating LeBron James, Anthony Davis, and the Lakers on opening night. The Golden State Warriors are next in line.
Let’s dive into the Clippers at Warriors betting odds and game pick.

What The NBA Odds Say About The Clippers vs. Warriors Matchup
The opening line for this game had the Clippers -2 on the road.
The oddsmakers didn’t leave that number out there for long, and the line moved half a point down.
Currently, Los Angeles is -1.5. There are some markets where you can get the Clippers-1.
The total opened at 224, and it moved up half a point to 224.5.
Why Bet On The Los Angeles Clippers?
After seeing the Clippers take down the Lakers 112-102 on Tuesday night, I’m sure the rest of the league took notice of the talent and depth on this team.
It’s easy to talk about Kawhi Leonard. He became the undisputed best player in the world last season when leading the Toronto Raptors to the NBA title.
In case we had forgotten, he reminded us with a stellar 30 points, six rebounds, and five assists stat line against the Lakers.
The Clippers’ strength this season doesn’t end with Kawhi
The team is deep in most positions and will be really hard to beat even by a squad with similar talent. Their bench outscored the Lakers’ bench 60 to 19, led by 21 points from Lou Williams.
The scary part is the Clippers are a team in development. They are nowhere near where they want to be, and just the thought of them getting back Paul George soon should terrify their competition.
This team didn’t enter the season as the favorites to win the NBA title just because the Lakers’ hype was a little louder. After the game on Tuesday night, I’m thinking the odds will be shifting to their favor.
Why Bet On The Golden State Warriors?
In the past is the Golden State Warriors’ super team that was nearly unbeatable.
Last year, injuries and the lack of depth ended one of the best runs in NBA history.
However, the Warriors want to remind us they are still an outstanding team even though Kevin Durant is no longer with the franchise, and Klay Thompson still is rehabbing an ACL injury.
Steph Curry Carries The Team
Steph Curry might need an MVP year just for the Warriors to have a chance to make the playoffs. I get the statement might be a little far-fetched, but we can’t underestimate the loss of two of the best scorers in the game.
The locker room will also miss one of their main leaders after the front office decided to send Andre Iguodala to Memphis.
A New Roster
The Warriors went through a full makeover after the NBA finals loss to Toronto. This is a new team that will need time to find an identity.
Having Draymond Green still there helps to keep some of the culture. But two questions come to my mind when looking at their current roster:
Can D’Angelo Russell and Curry coexist in the backcourt? Will both be enough to keep Golden State relevant?
Los Angeles Clippers vs. Golden State Warriors NBA Prediction
After seeing what the Clippers did to the Lakers, I’m actually a little surprised they are not favorites by a larger spread.
All signs point to Los Angeles being the best team in the West. The core of the squad has been playing together for a couple of seasons.
What coach Doc Rivers did was just insert Kawhi Leonard to the system, but the flow and rhythm were the same. It just happened that the team added the best player in the world to the equation.
I expect Golden State to have problems early in the season.
Steph Curry is one of the best scorers the league has ever seen, but he’s just one guy. Where will the Warriors find the offense to beat Los Angeles?
Bet Clippers -1.5.
