NBA Handicapping: LA Clippers winning games and covering numbers without Griffin

01.13.2016     09:18 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Interesting article on why the Los Angeles Clippers are performing better without the services of Blake Griffin who has been out with an injured quad. Sans Griffin, the Clippers are 7-0 SU and 6-1 ATS. They also went a respectable 9-6 SU/ATS when he missed time last season with an elbow injury. From a betting perspective, logic points us towards extra value with the markets perhaps overestimating Griffin's true worth. Then there's the "step up" mentality of having your star player out and needing to perform at a higher level to offset the loss. As pointed out in the article, LA's success without Griffin was also likely aided by the fact that that multiple opponents were without the services of key players. In the meantime, Griffin remains out and DeAndre Jordan is questionable with the flu for tonight's game against Miami. The Heat though may be without Hassan Whiteside who is questionable with a bum knee.
