It's already returned almost $1,800 in profit on all its top-rated NBA picks during the 2019-20 season and entered Week 10 on a blistering 23-11 run on all top-rated NBA spread picks. Anybody who has followed it has seen huge returns.
Now, it has simulated Clippers vs. Grizzlies 10,000 times and the results are in. We can tell you that the model is leaning over, and it's also generated a point-spread pick that is hitting in almost 70 percent of simulations. You can only see the pick at SportsLine.
Los Angeles opened the new year with a 126-112 win over Detroit. Forward Montrezl Harrell (23 points) and guard Lou Williams (22 points) were the top scorers for the Clippers. Paul George had to leave the game at halftime after feeling some tightness in his hamstring and it's likely that the Clippers play it safe with the superstar on the second night of a back-to-back.
That means Kawhi Leonard will carry a larger load on both ends of the floor, but it's a responsibility he's used to after leading the Raptors to a title last season and playing without George as he recovered from offseason shoulder surgery to start the season.
Meanwhile, Memphis started off the new year with a 128-123 defeat to Sacramento. Memphis was up 42-26 at the end of the first quarter but couldn't hold on to the lead. The Grizzlies did have six players score at least 15 points in the loss. Ja Morant led the way with 23 points and seven assists and Jonas Valanciunas had a double-double with 18 points and 12 rebounds.
The Clippers got away with a 121-119 win the last time the two teams met in November.
