NBA Playoff Betting Odds:
Golden State Warriors
The Warriors haven’t looked as great as they would’ve liked in their opening series of the 2019 NBA playoffs. Heading into Game 6, the Warriors have a 3-2 edge over Los Angeles. And despite playing Game 6 on the road, tonight’s NBA playoff betting odds are pegging Golden State as a massive favorite. This shouldn’t come as a massive surprise because Golden State is 7-3 in their last 10 against the Clippers. But since two of those losses came in this series, some fans might be inclined to stick with Los Angeles. However, the Warriors are undefeated against the Clippers on the road in this series. With that in mind, it’s clear that the Warriors will be closing out this series tonight.
Players to Watch: Kevin Durant (32.0 ppg, 5.2 rpg, 5.4 apg), Stephen Curry (24.8 ppg, 6.8 rpg, 5.0 apg), and Klay Thompson (19.0 ppg, 2.0 rpg, 1.6 apg).
Los Angeles Clippers
Unlike the Warriors, the Clippers are facing elimination this evening. All in all it’s not the first game they’re doing so. Game 5 had the same implications for Los Angeles but the Clippers were still able to pull through despite being on the road. Now that they’ll be at home, will Los Angeles have a greater advantage this evening? Tonight’s NBA playoff betting odds don’t seem to think so but Los Angeles is hopeful they can get the job done. All things considered, Los Angeles’ chances lie in their shooting. In Game 2 and 5 where they upset the Warriors, the Clippers accomplished the feat by shooting over 50% from the floor. If they can replicate those results at home, they should have no problems tying this series up.
Players to Watch: Lou Williams (24.4 ppg, 3.0 rpg, 7.8 apg), Montrezl Harrell (20.0 ppg, 5.4 rpg, 2.4 apg), and Danilo Gallinari (18.0 ppg, 6.4 rpg, 3.2 apg).
