NBA Playoff Betting Odds Game 7 Los Angeles Clippers vs Houston Rockets Free Picks

The NBA Playoffs continue on Sunday night and we will see the Los Angeles Clippers travel to the Toyota Center to take on the Houston Rockets in game 7 of their best-of-seven series. Free Pick to follow. The game has a start time of 9:30 pm (Eastern) and will be televised on TNT. Current Vegas betting odds have the Clippers listed as 2.5 point favorites, while the total is set at 219. 

Analysis: The Los Angeles Clippers came into the playoffs as the number 3 seed and they took on Houston at the Staples Center in game 6 with a 3-2 series lead and had a 19 point lead in the 4th quarter of that game, but then an epic collapse happened and here we are for a game 7 in Houston. The Clippers have had issues closing out series in the past and it happened again. LA has gone 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games playing on 2 days rest and 16-5-1 ATS in their last 22 road games. The Clippers have scored 106.9 ppg on 47.2% shooting overall and 36.8% from long range on the road this year. Defensively they have struggled away from home as they have allowed 102.9 ppg on 45.4% shooting overall and 36.0% shooting from long range. 

The Houston Rockets went in to LA down 3 games to 2 and then were down big in the 4th quarter, but something sparked them and the went on a 31-7 run in the last 7 minutes of the game to send this series back to Houston for a game 7. One of the most incredible playoff comebacks in the history of the NBA. Houston has gone 9-1 ATS in their last 10 games playing on 2 days rest, but just 4-10 ATS in the last 14 games in this series. The Rockets have scored 104.6 ppg on 44.4% shooting overall and 35.0% from long range at home for the year. Defensively they have been decent at home as they have allowed 98.9 ppg on 45.6% shooting overall and 29.2% shooting from long range.  

Pick: I will be going with the Under here. This has been a long series and both teams should be a bit tired, plus we also note that this is a game 7 and those games tend to be a bit lower scoring than normal. I look for both teams to try and lock it down defensively here in what should be a slower paced game than the first 3 in the series.

Hack-a-Deandre Jordan is a Winning Strategy--Buy/Sell?
The NBA discussion gets heated between pro bettors Steve Fezzik and Teddy Covers as they debate the merits of the Hack-a-Deandre Jordan approach taken by the Houston Rockets and countless teams before them. Teddy defies Fezzik to name one time in 15 years since this tactic first emerged as Hack-a-Shaq where a team won a game employing it, while Fezzik insists something is working if Doc Rivers is benching his star center for the Clippers after whiffing so many free throws.
