Los Angeles Clippers game lines

Legal sportsbooks in California will offer the following NBA lines for betting on Clippers totals, moneyline, and point spread.

Lakers/Clippers LinesMoneylineSpreadTotal
LA Lakers-150 -3.5 (-110)Over 210.5 (-110)
LA Clippers+140+3.5 (-110)Under 215.5 (-110)

In the typical Lakers/Clippers game lines you see above, The Clippers are +140 underdogs on the moneyline. This means betting $100 on the Clippers moneyline will get you $140, plus your bet back, if the Clippers win outright.

The Lakers are favorites with a -150 on the moneyline, which means you have to bet $150 on the Lakers to win $100, plus your bet back.

The Clippers are +3.5 underdogs on the NBA point spread. This means you can bet on the Clippers winning or losing by three or fewer. It also means the Lakers are -3.5 favorites, and you can bet on them winning by four or more. Both bets are at -110 odds that, if successful, pay $100, plus your bet back, for every $110 bet.

There’s also a 210.5 totals line. Bet the under and you win if the final total score adds up to 210 or less. Bet the over, and you win if the final score adds up to 211.

Once again, both bets are at -110 odds that, if successful, pay $100, plus your bet back, for every $110 bet.

Clippers futures odds

The Clippers futures market is where you can bet on the Clippers doing things the team has never done before, like winning the Western Conference Championship or the NBA Finals. Of course, it also includes bets on the team winning more than a specific number of regular-season games, winning its division, or simply making it to the NBA Playoffs.

Most futures bets are available throughout the calendar year, with the odds fluctuating along with the team’s chances. This usually means early bets offer the best Clippers odds. Once the Clippers indeed prove themselves contenders for the NBA crown, the odds will shrink significantly.

Because of Kawhi Leonard’s injury status in 2021, the Clippers opened at +2000 to win the NBA Finals. Late in the season, with the team in the bottom half of the playoff race, the odds rose closer to +4000.

Meanwhile, the Western Conference Champion Phoenix Suns, opened at +1300 and the odds dropped to +320 once they proved to be the best in the West again before the playoffs started.

Live betting on the Clippers

Mobile tech can turn your phone into a sportsbook available whenever you want, wherever you are. That means you can watch a Clippers game wherever you like and, once California legalizes and regulates sports betting, bet on a Clippers game with your phone or tablet.

CA mobile apps also let you bet on Clippers games in the middle of the action. Live betting is mainly betting on the same lines you bet on pregame, but the odds constantly change with the game’s action. Top apps expected to launch in CA post legislation include the BetMGM Sportsbook app and Caesar mobile betting app.

Clippers past, present, and future

The Los Angeles Clippers were officially born in 1984 when then-owner Donald Sterling moved the franchise to Los Angeles from San Diego. The team was founded as the Buffalo Braves in 1970, moved to San Diego in 1978, and rebranded as the San Diego Clippers, named after the sailboats in the nearby bay.

The Clippers never made the playoffs in San Diego and continued losing in LA, making the playoffs only four times in their first 27 seasons and even then losing in the First Round all four times. The team’s first sniff of any real success came when they added All-Stars Blake Griffin, DeAndre Jordan, and Chris Paul. The ‘Lob City’ Clippers made the playoffs six straight seasons from 2012 to 2017, but failed to advance past the Western Conference Semifinals.

In 2014, owner Donald Sterling was caught on tape displaying racist behavior, banned for life from the NBA, and forced to sell. Former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer bought the team for $2 billion, eventually broke up the Lob City team, and started a rebuild in 2017.

The big move was sending Chris Paul to the Houston Rockets in a sign-and-trade that brought the Clippers Lou Williams, Patrick Beverley, and Montrezl Harrell. The Clippers made a surprising playoff run in 2019 behind the play of those three, then signed two-time NBA Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard and traded for NBA All-Star Paul George in the offseason.

Williams, Beverley, and Harrell have since moved on, but the Clippers made the deepest playoff run in franchise history in 2021, making it to the Conference Finals for the first time before losing to the Phoenix Suns.

In September 2021, the Clippers also broke ground on the $1.8 billion 18,000-seat Intuit Dome in Inglewood. The team plans to move into the new arena in 2024.

The team is widely considered secondary to the Lakers in all aspects, though, since the Lakers have won 17 NBA titles and the Clippers were one of just three NBA teams never to have even reached a Conference Finals before 2021.

Clippers betting partners

In 2015, the Los Angeles Clippers and DraftKings struck a deal making DraftKings the official daily fantasy sports partner of the Los Angeles Clippers. The deal saw the DraftKings name and logo incorporated with the Clippers video board, LED Courtside signage, and digital media.

It may also have paved the way for a deal with DraftKings to become the team’s official sportsbook partner should legal sports betting ever come to California.

The Clippers have also called Agua Caliente Casino Resorts a Presenting Sponsor since 2015. Agua Caliente Casino Resort Spa is a tribal casino in downtown Palm Springs.

Los Angeles Clippers FAQs

The Clippers were the Buffalo Braves before they moved to San Diego where the name was changed to ‘Clippers’ as an ode to the sailing boats found in San Diego Bay.

The Los Angeles Clippers were founded as the Buffalo Braves in 1970, moved to San Diego, California, in 1978, and then in 1984, then-owner Donald Sterling moved the team to Los Angeles without NBA approval. The league took legal action, but the Clippers stayed in LA, becoming a perennial loser and the polar opposite of the 17-time NBA Champion LA Lakers.

Kawhi Leonard is currently the Clippers’ best player. Leonard won Defensive Player of the Year in 2015 and 2016 and was named NBA Finals MVP twice after championship wins with the San Antonio Spurs in 2014 and the Toronto Raptors in 2019. After winning the title with Toronto, he signed with the hometown Los Angeles Clippers.

1975 NBA Most Valuable Player Bob McAdoo is widely considered the best Clippers player in history, even though he played with the franchise when they were the Buffalo Braves and won two NBA championships with the Los Angeles rival Lakers. McAdoo is in the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame and was named to the NBA 75th Anniversary Team. His NBA MVP award came in the 1974–75 season with the franchise, as he averaged 34.5 points and 14.1 rebounds per game. McAdoo also led the league in fan voting for the All-Star Game that season.
