Los Angeles Clippers @ Portland Trail Blazers – Saturday January 26, 2013 10:00PM EST

According to the NBA standings, the Los Angeles Clippers are not officially the best team in basketball. But the best online betting sites have the Clippers listed on top of most of the NBA power rankings. The thing that makes the Clippers such a great team is consistency. Each player knows his role in the offensive and defensive game plan, and then the team goes out and executes that game plan effectively. Veteran leadership from players like Chris Paul helps to keep the rest of the team focused on each and every game and there is nothing the Clippers takes for granted.

The online sports betting world has watched the Portland Trail Blazers work hard to stay around the .500 mark for the season, but Portland has now shown any signs of being a playoff contender. The top of the Western Conference looks to be pretty crowded and Portland is going to need to start making some moves if it wants to get into consideration for a post-season spot. Ideally, a win over the Clippers would go a long way towards boosting the Trail Blazers’ confidence and moving the team closer to a playoff berth. But that is easier said than done.

Why the Clippers Will Win

The online sports book experts feel that the Clippers can adjust its game to beat just about any team in the NBA. The only team that Los Angeles has really had a problem with is the Oklahoma City Thunder. While that makes for an interesting playoff situation, it does not really give insight into this game. All the Clippers really needs to do to win this game is stick with the things it does best and play a complete game. Portland has struggled this season, but it is definitely not a team to take lightly.

Why the Trail Blazers Will Win

Portland knows that the Clippers will not let its guard down for this game at all, so the Trail Blazers will have to work to win this one. Portland will have to play a game of ball possession if it wants to have any chance of cracking the Clippers’ offense. The less that Chris Paul has the ball, the less damage he can do on the scoreboard. But with the aggressive style of defense that the Clippers play, it will be difficult to for Portland to keep the ball for very long.

The Bottom Line

Portland will give the Clippers about all it can handle in this game, but it won’t be enough to help the Blazers win. Los Angeles refuses to look ahead on its schedule. It takes each game one at a time and the Trail Blazers are next up on the list. This will be a fun game to watch, but probably not if you are a Portland fan.

Pick: Los Angeles Clippers
