LA Clippers +15 at Hornets: This will be a taxing day for the visiting Clippers, who would have a better chance to win at Mardi Gras. The game opened at 17˝ and was bet down to 14˝ in some locales. The movement can be attributed to the Hornets going 1-3 against the spread in their last four outings. New Orleans still has hope to secure the top seed in the West, but it would take a Lakers loss tonight against Sacramento and Hornets wins here and at Dallas tomorrow night in the regular season finale.

The line movement works in our favor since we had the number at 17. The Clippers are on a five-game losing streak, allowing at least 105 points in each loss. The Hornets are 25-15 ATS at home and it would be logical to think MVP candidate Chris Paul will put up some numbers to boost his stock. The spread is high, but the Hornets definitely need the victory a lot more. HORNETS.
