|Clippers Odds||-8.5 [Bet Now]|
|Moneyline||+300/-385 [Bet Now]|

The -385 moneyline odds suggest there’s a pretty darn good chance — almost 80% implied — that the Clippers will punch their ticket to the Western Conference Finals this evening.
Those -385 odds also convert to a spread of 8.5 points, which is probably the more intriguing number to most bettors. And as our PRO Report has made apparent, sharps are among those bettors making a move on it. The report also suggests there may be some value on the same side in the form of a historically profitable PRO system.
Let’s take a look.

Nuggets vs. Clippers Game 5 PRO Report
As you can see below, the current 8.5-point spread wasn’t always the listed option. This number has moved from an opener of Clippers -8, thanks to some help from pro bettors.
It’s first worth noting that the Clippers have been the popular side in this matchup. But Los Angeles’ 58% backing probably wouldn’t be enough for a line move, all else being equal.
Of course, that changes if the 58% includes some wiseguys.
In this case, Sports Insights Bet Signals have been triggered twice on the Clippers spread at -8, confirming pro action as the reason for the half-point move.
Sharp Action edge: Clippers
As you can tell by the far right side of the PRO Report snippet, the 58% of bets on the Clippers have generated 63% of actual money hitting the spread. And while that’s not quite enough of a discrepancy to trigger our Big Money indicator, it does put LA in a spot that’s been historically profitable in the playoffs.
The Clips are a match for our PRO System, “NBA Playoffs: More Money on Favorites,” which has a 64% win rate and 24% return on investment.
PRO Systems edge: Clippers
