They’re truly in a tough spot. First they get thrown into a back to back for the first 2 games of the season against run and gun offenses that know how to move the ball. Then they lose their lottery pick for the entire season as Julius Randle goes out with a leg fracture.
Now you throw them into a home game matchup that really isn’t a home game. The Lakers need a game against a team that will come in and play with an approach to work out their kinks such as the Kings or Jazz. Instead they get the Clip Show. Lob City. Rejuvenated and Energized. New Ownership and the same guys who know how to destroy the Lakers inside and out.
You realize the Clippers beat the Lakers all 3 times in 2014 by an average of 35.7 points? That’s not a typo and it’s not a combined score. The Clippers show no mercy. It’s an overall attitude that a revolution is taking place in Tinseltown and the Clippers are taking the throne as the team in LA.
I’m not a fan of either team and I don’t recommend large wagers when either team plays. This is a good pick from -12 to -19 for the Clippers to blow out the Lakers early on. Kobe is already shaking his head as its going from bad to worse.
Take a small play on the Clippers and wait for SportsAtari’s true NBA season to return.
Ari Atari went 81-51 last season and 78-35 in 2011-2012, with a combined total of a 197% return in the last 3 seasons on a starting bankroll from November-April. If you’re looking to ride a season the right way with the BEST NBA CAPPER in the business, then look no further.
Atlanta Hawks vs. Toronto Raptors
NBA Pick: Toronto -4.5 (October 29th 2014)

The Raptors were a big surprise last season as they won the Atlantic Division and finished tied for the third best record in the Eastern Conference. Expectations are high this season but we are getting a good number to open with here as Toronto hosts Atlanta in each teams opener. The success took place mostly after Rudy Gay was dealt to Sacramento after 20 games, the Raptors went 41-21 the rest of the way and narrowly missed making it out of the first round of the playoffs. The opening game is always big for teams like Toronto and we should see a solid effort. The Raptors had an excellent offseason, re-signing Kyle Lowry and acquiring Lou Williams without giving up too much. Atlanta meanwhile has made the playoffs for six straight years and the weak Eastern Conference should allow it to make it seven straight. This team is stuck in neutral however and the Hawks 14-27 road record last season was the worst of any team to make the playoffs. The home team won and covered all four meetings last season and I expect that to carry over here. Given the short price for the home team, I’d recommend a play on the Raptors tonight.

Free Play from Doc’s Sports. #359 Take Florida Gators over Georgia Bulldogs (Saturday 3:30 pm CBS) The World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party has lost most of its luster with Florida falling off a cliff and will likely have a new coach at the end of the season. But that being said I expect them to put forth a solid effort this week and this is one of the few games they have left on their schedule that will get national exposure. Georgia has won five straight games against bad teams but is still without their best player in Todd Gurley. Expect Treon Harris to start at quarterback for the Gators as he gives them the best chance to move the football. Doc’s Sports is coming off a monster week in football highlighted by a perfect 4-0 performance in the NFL and a pair of blowout top play winners. Now is the time to jump on board with a veteran handicapper of 43 years. Doc’s Sports Mountain West Game of the Year goes this Saturday and you can purchase this selection right here, right now!
