Clippers vs. Raptors NBA Betting Odds

Tuesday is the first of two regular-season meetings between the teams with Toronto going to Los Angeles on March 8.

Last season, the Dinos won both. Pascal Siakam averaged 28.0 points and 15.5 rebounds in the series, Fred VanVleet 26.0 points and 6.0 assists, and Gary Trent Jr. just 8.5 points. Marcus Morris averaged 21.0 points for the Clippers, Reggie Jackson 20.0 points, and Terance Mann 17.0 points and 10.0 rebounds. Neither of the Clippers’ two All-Stars, Kawhi Leonard or Paul George, played in the games. Leonard missed the season injured but is healthy now. 

Toronto leads the all-time series 29-23, is 17-9 at home and is 11-5 ATS in the past 16 overall meetings. The total has gone under in six of the previous seven.

Los Angeles Clippers

The Clippers were 142-131 OT winners in Detroit on Monday playing without All-Star Kawhi Leonard, who doesn’t play both ends of a back-to-back with his injury history. He should play tonight it’s but far from a sure thing. Ditto fellow All-Star Paul George, who had 32 points and 11 rebounds in leading Los Angeles back from a 14-point deficit in the final 3:34 of regulation in one of the most unlikely wins in franchise history. Even more amazing, the Clips finished the fourth quarter on a 16-2 run with a lineup of basically all reserves. Norman Powell had 16 off the bench, and the former Raptor will play his first game at Scotiabank Arena tonight since Feb. 28, 2020. He was dealt to Portland in March 2021 in the Gary Trent Jr. trade. The Clippers are 7-2 ATS in their past nine games. 

Toronto Raptors

Toronto won a second straight game in upset fashion Friday, 118-107 at Cleveland – which leads the NBA in home victories. Scottie Barnes broke out of a slump by finishing with 25 points on 10-for-16 shooting to go with 10 rebounds. Pascal Siakam had 26 points, nine assists and seven rebounds, and OG Anunoby 26 points. Siakam was named the Eastern Conference Player of the Week for last week. The Raptors made a season-high 19 3-pointers, with Anunoby tying his career best with six. They improved to 7-0 this season when shooting 40 per cent or better from three-point range.

Khem Birch (non-COVID illness) missed his second straight game, but coach Nick Nurse said he was improving. Starting tonight, Toronto will play its next seven games against teams with a record above .500. The Raptors are 7-1 ATS in their past eight Tuesday games.
