The L.A Clippers were known as a laughing stock franchise and the ugly step-brother to the Lakers for so many years, but all that changed when Blake Griffin and Chris Paul arrived in town. Since those two became teammates in late 2011, the Clippers have been reborn and are a consistent playoff team that bettors can count on for about 50 wins per year. That many wins brings many sharp LA Clippers lines from the oddsmakers…
But if you are a savvy bettor and follow L.A’s schedule and results you’ll know when to get your money down and when to stay on the sidelines.

LA Clippers Record
Starting in the early 1980′s, the Clippers were usually the place where NBA careers went to die. The organization had just three playoff appearances from 1984-85 to 2004-05 and they all ended in first round defeats. It was not a pleasant place to be for players and you could tell that many of them were only out on the floor to collect their paycheck. There was only one other playoff appearance between the end of that run and the arrival of Chris Paul, and things have certainly changed since then.
While the 2015-16 playoff appearance was the Clippers fifth straight with Paul and company, they’ve failed to get past the second round in any of those years. Now the questions about this organization aren’t about if they will put a winning team out there, but if they can build a championship calibre unit. Those questions are ones bettors will keep a close eye on in the coming years.
Numbers-wise, the LA Clippers have been fairly kind to bettors with those 50+ win seasons. Including all of their playoff games, since the 11-12 season the Clippers have an ATS record (not including pushes) of 224-209 with their first-round exit in 15-16. That’s a solid profit of 15 units over the course of that time, but the biggest margin of wins they had in a single year during that time was +7. Long-term they are solid numbers, but it tells you that you’ve really got to do your homework with this team.
Picking your betting spots with any team is critical for success, but it’s been especially important with the LA Clippers lines.
