Clippers vs Bulls Prediction, Odds and NBA Picks Thursday, March 14

The Los Angeles Clippers’ ranking within the Western Conference has dipped after they lost three of their last five games. They are now four games out of first place as they prepare to play the Chicago Bulls on the road on Thursday night.

The Bulls are on the second night of a back-to-back, having clinched an overtime victory against the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday. They’re vying for a position in the play-in tournament, with a likely finish as the East’s ninth seed. But they got beat up 112-102 by the Clippers on Saturday and might be heading into Thursday’s matchup shorthanded.

Guard Coby White, a contender for the Most Improved Player award, suffered a hip injury during the Indiana game and is listed as out for Wednesday.

Meanwhile, the Clippers might also be at a disadvantage with critical players Kawhi Leonard and James Harden tagged as questionable for this matchup. Their potential absence could significantly impact the betting odds and game dynamics.

The game’s NBA point spread sits at six points in favor of the Clippers, with the full game total at 213½. If Harden or Leonard can’t go, expect that line to shift.

Clippers vs Bulls ATS Pick: Bulls +6

Given the current circumstances, there’s a compelling case for siding with the Bulls with a +6 spread.

First, let’s discuss Chicago’s record. As home underdogs, the Bulls have posted an 8-6-1 record against the NBA spread this season.

While Coby White’s injury might raise concerns, his recent performances — with shooting stats like 7-for-16 and 6-for-17 in his latest outings — haven’t been stellar. This opens up an opportunity for Chicago’s bench, especially guards Alex Caruso, Jevon Carter and Ayo Dosunmu, who are more than capable of stepping up. Their increased playing time could lead to a stronger defensive approach, which is advantageous when facing a Clippers team that might not be at full strength.

Regarding the Clippers, Leonard’s limited playtime recently — only 12 minutes in his last game — and his injury history could mean a cautious approach, possibly sidelining him. Moreover, the Clippers could be significantly weakened with Harden’s status uncertain and Russell Westbrook already out.

The Clippers have been inconsistent on the road, with a 12-10 against the Vegas betting odds as favorites and just a 5-5 record in their last 10 games. With Leonard’s condition uncertain, betting on the Clippers seems risky.

Thus, as home underdogs, the Bulls stand an excellent chance to exceed expectations on Thursday, notably if the Clippers are missing key players. Basketball betting online on the Bulls +6 seems wise because of their ability to cover at home and the potential handicaps facing the Clippers.

 

Clippers vs Bulls Player Prop Pick: Alex Caruso Over 10.5 Points (-124)

When Caruso needs to step up, he has a proven track record of filling in nicely. Take Wednesday night, for example. With the injuries to Chicago’s starting lineup, Caruso logged 37 minutes and scored an impressive 23 points. It was the third time in his last seven games that he logged 26+ minutes and 11+ points in a game.

While Caruso is my guy tonight, you could also bet online in favor of Carter and Dosunmu to eclipse their points totals.
