L.A. Clippers (-4') at ORLANDO

By Jack Brayman, Featured Handicapper

Nailed my 30 Dimer on Saturday, as I told you San Francisco would be dangerous at home, and could challenge BYU for the outright win. Sure enough, the Dons got it done.

Today I have another 30 Dimer, as I head to the opposite side of the country, to Loudonville, NY, where Siena is hosting Quinnipiac for a conference battle.

Let's carry the momentum over from Saturday and into this Sunday matinee.

My free basketball winner is on the Los Angeles Clippers at the Orlando Magic, as we're laying cheap number with arguably the best team in the Western Conference. You Lakers lovers may disagree considering the records, and the fact the Purple and Gold are on top of the West, and the Utah Jazz are in second place.

But the Clippers have just as many wins as the Jazz, and they're undefeated against the Lakers this season. They also have Kawhi Leonard.

Quite frankly, as sketchy as the Magic have been - even at home - I don't think they'll be able to contain the surging Clippers and Leonard, who just registered the first triple-double of his career. In South Beach, Leonard poured in 33 points, grabbed 10 rebounds and dished 10 assists in a 122-117 come-from-behind win over the Heat.

Leonard, who is known for his defensive edge, has scored more than 30 points in each of his last seven games, averaging 35.6 points, 7.0 rebounds, 5.1 assists and 2.7 steals while shooting 51.5 percent from the field and 37.7 percent from three in that stretch.

With his offensive surge, the Clippers have now won five of six, an make note he didn't play in the lone loss, in Atlanta.

The Clippers, who have won their last 12 games against the Magic and have covered four of the last five meetings, rank in the Top 10 in both offensive and defensive efficiency. Los Angeles, which is on ATS runs of 25-12 as a road favorite and 10-4 on just one day of rest, has an offensive rating of 112.3 points per 100 possessions, and a defensive rating of 106.1 points allowed per 100 possessions - both good for sixth best in the league.

Lay the cheap road number as the Clippers roll.


Indiana at PORTLAND (-1)

I nailed a 400♦ Winner on Wednesday night with Richmond (-9) blasting La Salle in Atlantic 10 action, an 18-point victory with the Spiders.

I nailed an 800♦ Winner on Thursday night with Utah (+1) defeating Washington outright, 67-66.

I nailed another 800♦ Winner on Friday night with Marquette (+6') covering at Butler in an overtime loss.

Saturday I delivered my first 1500♦ College Basketball release since 2017 on Colorado (-7'), a 76-62 winner over Washington.

Now it's time to put those winnings to work, as I aim for Winning Day # 5 in a Row with my SECOND 1500♦ College Basketball release since 2017.

My complimentary winner is out of the NBA, as I'm on Dame Time tonght. The Western Conference's 11-seed Portland Trail Blazers are laying just a point to the Eastern Conference's No. 5 seed, the Indiana Pacers. 

The Blazers have had the last two nights off, and I like their chances to rebound from Thursday's 133-125 loss to the Dallas Mavericks. An 8-point loss to one of the best teams in the West, but can you imagine if the Blazers had CJ McCollum in the lineup?

Portland's number two scoring threat is expected to rejoin Damian Lillard after sitting out the past three games with an ankle sprain. Injuries have hindered the Trail Blazers all season, as they've missed Zach Collins in the paint.

Indiana suffered a severe blow when it lost starting point guard Malcolm Brogdon Wednesday in Phoenix, where he suffered a concussion. That'll hurt against the Blazers, who have a red-hot Lillard running their offense.

Over his last two games Lillard is averaging an outrageous 54 points per game thanks to an aggressive approach of driving into the lane or confidence pulling up from just past half court. Hell, go back and watch his highlights, as Lillard is throwing up shots closer to the half-court line than he is the 3-point line.

Dame has hit 19 of his 35 3-point attempts (54.3%) and connected on all 23 of his free throws (100%) during this two-game stretch. He is averaging 31.4 points this month while shooting over 41 percent from distance. The return of  McCollum will help distract the Pacers, who won't know who to guard.

I'm playing the home team here, as Portland continues to make a push heading into the All-Star Break.
