Before making any Clippers vs. Warriors picks, you NEED to check out the NBA predictions from the SportsLine Projection Model.
The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every NBA game 10,000 times and has returned almost $9,000 in profit on its top-rated NBA picks over the past three seasons. The model finished up almost $600 on its top-rated picks last season and enters the 2021-22 NBA season on a stunning 100-66 roll on top-rated NBA picks against the spread. Anyone following it has seen HUGE returns!
The model knows the Clippers are a top-level offensive team. L.A. finished as a top-three team in the NBA in offensive efficiency a year ago, leading the league in both free throw shooting and three-point shooting. With Kawhi Leonard out of action with a knee injury, Paul George takes center stage, but the Clippers are deep, balanced and talented under the direction of Tyronn Lue.
The model also knows the Warriors are very good on both ends. Golden State's offense is keyed by Stephen Curry, who averaged 32 points per game and shot nearly 42 percent from three-point range on sky-high volume last season. The Warriors also received a flash of upside from Jordan Poole in the season opener with 20 points, and Golden State held Los Angeles to fewer than 1.02 points per possession on Tuesday.
Now, it has set its sights on Clippers vs. Warriors. We can tell you the model is leaning over the total, and it also says one side of the spread hits in almost 60 percent of simulations! You ABSOLUTELY need to see it before locking in any NBA picks.
