Tom Stryker’s Free Basketball Play April 21st


#587 DALLAS (-2′) over LA Clippers at 3:30 PM EST
Locked into a double-revenge mode, the Mavericks will stroll right into LA and knock off the Clippers in this NBA Playoff battle. Los Angeles stumbles into this contest on a woeful 0-3 SU and ATS run, and this will be a tremendous challenge for head coach Tyronn Lue and his squad.

Technically speaking, this is a lucrative spot for the visitors. Since 2011, Round 1 Game 1 No. 5 seeds have inked a respectable 17-10 ATS mark against the No. 4 seed. If this is a non-division battle, the No. 5 seed cruises to an elite 13-7 ATS. Equally impressive, Dallas has assembled a stunning 87-42-1 ATS in its next game when coming off a straight up road loss of 20 points or more. In this situation priced as an underdog or a favorite of -8 or less, the Mavs improve to a powerful 84-34-1 ATS. Also, as a playoff guest arriving without steam off a straight up loss, the Mavericks own a respectable 21-10-1 ATS tally including a golden 10-0-1 ATS if they hit the hardwood off two or more straight up losses.

Since February 7th, the Clippers have been an average basketball team inking a soft 17-16 SU and 10-23 ATS mark. In this run playing in the comforts of home, Los Angeles falls to a dismal 4-14 ATS. Additionally, when running the floor off a blowout loss of 10 points or more, Coach Lue and his players have failed to respond notching a surprising 23-39 ATS mark including a stiff 8-22 SU and 10-20 ATS provided their opponent carries a team won/loss percentage of .488 or higher.

The Mavs have excelled on the road, and they’ll get out to a fast start in this series with a solid victory. Take Dallas. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
