Wednesday's NBA Free Pick ---Los Angeles Clippers -6---

LA Clippers vs. Boston, 12/11/2013 19:30
Point Spread: -6/-105 LA Clippers

Wednesday's NBA Free Pick ---Los Angeles Clippers -6---

Clippers head coach Doc Rivers will be making his first appearance as the opposing coach of the Celtics since he left Boston in the offseason. I believe this game means more to Rivers than it does the Celtics. Only six of the players who are currently suiting up for Boston played under Rivers last year. The Celtics didn't exactly step up their game last night in Brooklyn when they faced former teammates Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce.

Three of the Celtics key players this year did play under Rivers last year in Avery Bradley, Jeff Green and Jordan Crawford. What I really like here is Rivers knows these players strengths and weaknesses and will have his new team ready to exploit those weaknesses.

Another key factor here is that we know the Clippers players are going to show up and lay it all on the line for their new head coach against his former team. When Los Angeles decides it's time to play they normally win and win convincingly against inferior teams. Los Angeles is 27-12 ATS in their last 39 road games when listed as a favorite of 3.5 to 6 points, while the Celtics are just 1-4 ATS in their last 5 vs a team with a winning percentage of 60% or better. BET THE CLIPPERS -6!
