The Los Angeles Clippers look for another win after winning five of their last eight games.

Tobias Harris is averaging 21.1 points and 7.9 rebounds while Danilo Gallinari is averaging 19 points and 2.5 assists.

The Los Angeles Clippers are allowing 34.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45.5 rebounds per game. The Los Angeles Clippers have won their last three road games.
The Toronto Raptors could use a victory here after splitting their last eight games. The Toronto Raptors are averaging 113.7 points on 47.1 percent shooting and allowing 108.6 points on 45.4 percent shooting. Kawhi Leonard is averaging 27.6 points and 7.9 rebounds while Serge Ibaka is averaging 16.1 points and 7.6 rebounds.

The Clippers are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 Sunday games and 7-2 ATS in their last 9 road games. The Raptors are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 vs. NBA Pacific and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 Sunday games. The Clippers are 2-7 ATS in the last 9 meetings in Toronto and 2-7 ATS in the last 9 meetings. The under is 5-2 in Raptors last 7 overall. The under is 11-4-1 in Clippers last 16 overall.
The Los Angeles Clippers are a better basketball team now that they're healthy, and they're outscoring teams by an average of 4.6 points in their last five games due to an improved offense. The Toronto Raptors are a bit hit and miss lately and have been very shaky defensively in their last five games, allowing 46.3 percent shooting. The Raptors are 7-12 ATS this season when favored by at least nine points. The Clippers are 3-1 ATS this season when an underdog of at least six points. I'll side with the Clippers and the points, as this is too many points to turn down with a playoff contender. The Raptors also aren't playing consistent ball lately.
