This should be a fun matchup between two of the more talented teams in the league, but we're getting a free bucket with the more balanced team in the Clippers. As explosive offensively as the Nets are, they continue to struggle defensively and it's hard to trust them with big chalk or against the better teams in the league. The Clippers have been one of the more consistent teams in the league from the start, and they win by an average of 8.1 points on the road. Give me the free point and the better team.
