Tips For Betting On Clippers Timberwolves – Clippers Look To Take Advantage Of Injured Timberwolves This Thursday

Posted by Craig Parsons on 1/15/2013 6:28:06 PM

The Minnesota Timberwolves have dealt with a ton of bad luck this season, including both Kevin Love and Ricky Rubio spending extended time on the sideline due to injury. On the heels of four-straight losses, it isn’t about to get any easier for Minnesota either, with the second-place Los Angeles Clippers in town on Thursday night. Despite the injuries, the Timberwolves have managed to maintain a winning record at home where they have won 10 of 15 games, which is the only reason they still have a slim chance of making the playoffs. That won’t make it any easier against the Clippers though, as they enter this online betting contest with one of the better road records in the NBA.

NBA Sportsbook Line: Los Angeles – 4.5

Blake Griffin and company have slid behind the Oklahoma City Thunder at the top of the standings over the past week, but still have time to get back in to that top spot down the stretch if they can finish strong. Whether or not they are able to will be based in large part on this next stretch, where Los Angeles will play 13 of its next 16 games on the road.

The Clippers had their way with Minnesota in the first meeting, as Chris Paul scored a game-high 23 points and also chipped in with 11 assists to lead the way. Los Angeles had five scorers that finished in double-digit scoring including Paul, who has averaged close to 10 assists while chipping in with his own shooting behind leading scorer Blake Griffin. Paul is the biggest reason why the Clippers rank second in the NBA in assists, and has also been a force at the defensive end of the floor where the team’s commitment to working hard has paid off with the second-best points allowed average in the NBA.

Even with Kevin Love the Timberwolves struggled in the initial meeting between these clubs, as he scored a team-high 19 points and led the way with 12 rebounds in a losing cause. Minnesota has looked much stronger at home all year, but the loss of Love in the middle has left them exposed against bigger teams and that will be the case again in this sports betting contest. The Timberwolves have a number of important weapons that have contributed all season, but as a team they are at their most efficient only with Love holding things down in the middle.

NBA Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

The fact that Minnesota is still even in the playoff picture despite all of the injuries they have had is testament to how hard they have worked. However, the Clippers have worked just as hard all year and have one of the most talented rosters in the NBA, so don’t expect them to slow down at all. Los Angeles is still fighting with the Thunder for the top spot in the Western Conference, and with so many road games coming up they will need to win the games they are expected to win and remain in the hunt.
