Thursday NBA Betting Preview:

Free NBA Picks and Predictions on this Los Angeles Clippers vs Charlotte Hornets game that tips off Thursday, May 13th at 7:10pm. The Draftkings NBA Odds have the Clippers listed as an -8 point road favorite and the over/under is currently at 224 total points.

These teams faced each other only once this NBA Season and that was back in March where Los Angeles got the 125-98 home win and covered the -9.5 point spread. In that game, the Clippers shot 52% from the field and had seven players that scored in the double digits including Paul George’s 21 points. On defense LA was able to hold Charlotte to 39% from the field and 15 of 41 from 3-point land.

The Hornets Gordon Hayward and Miles Bridges combined for 38 points in that matchup, but as per reports both out them have been ruled out for this one due to injuries or health protocols.

Los Angeles currently sits in the third seed in the Western Conference at 46-23 overall and 20-13 on the road this season. This Clippers team had bad luck when it came to injuries this season and are still trying to find their identity, but if they can get it together, they have the depth on the bench and the 3 point shooting to be able to make a run to the finals this season.

In the last 3 games, the Clippers have scored an average of 111 points, while playing the best defense in the league, only giving up an average of 98.7 points.

LA is 2-6 against the spread in their last 8 games and the total has gone under in 8 of the Clippers’ last 9 games.

For Charlotte, this will be their last home game of the regular season. They’ve clinched a spot in the NBA Play-In Tournament, but they’ll be battling with the Pacers and Wizards to see who finishes in the eighth, ninth or tenth spot. With two of their star players out, Devonte’ Graham stepped up his performance and led the team with 31 points in their last game on Tuesday against the Denver Nuggets, but it still wasn’t enough to grab that win.

Our numbers show that if they want any shot at upsetting the Clippers, then Terry Rozier will need to have another big game and drop over 30 points. In the last 3 games, Charlotte has put up an average of 115 points while giving up an average of 113.7 points on defense.

Charlotte is 6-12 against the spread in their last 18 games and total has gone under in 6 of the Hornets last 9 games against the Clippers.
