Los Angeles Lakers vs. Los Angeles Clippers: Picks, predictions, odds and player props

Wednesday night will see the Los Angeles Clippers face their bitter rivals the Los Angeles Lakers at their shared venue, the Crypto.com Arena, for the final time in the 2024 regular season.

With the Clippers moving to their own arena at the end of the season, it will bring an end to the ‘Hallway Series'. 

The Clippers are the designated home team for this clash and they have been the better team this season, sitting fourth in the West with their rivals down in 10th. 

The Lakers have lost 12 of the last 14 meetings between the California foes and will need to be at their best to get a result on Wednesday. 

Los Angeles Lakers vs. Los Angeles Clippers betting picks and predictions

LA Clippers -3.5 @ -110

The Clippers have dominated this rivalry in recent times, winning 12 of the last 14 meetings with the Lakers, and they can end their final ever regular season Hallway Series matchup with a convincing victory. 

They have won seven of their last 10 games at the Crypto.com Arena and should see off their depleted rivals with little trouble. 

The Lakers will definitely be without Christian Wood, Gabe Vincent and Jarred Vanderbilt for this match while stars Anthony Davis and LeBron James are listed as probable and questionable, respectively. 

Should either one - or especially both - of the Lakers' stars not make it, the Clippers could land a big victory on Wednesday night and the hosts could do so even if the pair do play as they have covered the spread in seven of their last 10 home games. 

Ivica Zubac over 9.5 rebounds @ -140

With Vanderbilt and Wood confirmed out and Anthony Davis probable with an ankle injury, Ivica Zubac could enjoy a big night on the boards. 

The Clippers' center has averaged 14 rebounds in his two games against the Lakers this season and looks sure to reach double figures in that statistic once again, with so many glass cleaners out for his opponents. 

With his average so high against the Lakers this term, the Croatian big man could be worth a shot in the milestone market with +240 available for Zubac to register 13 rebounds on Wednesday. 

Rui Hachimura over 1.5 threes made @ +165

With the Lakers missing key players, it will fall on the shoulders of the other starters to step up, namely D'Angelo Russell, Austin Reaves and Rui Hachimura, with the latter likely to enjoy a good game. 

Hachimura struggled against the Clippers in these teams' last clash, but he did make his only attempted three-pointer in that game and he is growing with confidence from beyond the arc game by game. 

He has knocked down at least two threes in three of his last four games, making a sensational six against the Utah Jazz four games ago, and he could find some more space against the Clippers this time round with elite defender Paul George ruled out due to injury. 

If James and Davis are out, Hachimura could get more shooting opportunities and, given he has made 53 percent of his threes across his last 15 games, he should be backed to knock down at least two on Wednesday.
