Los Angeles Clippers Betting

The Los Angeles Clippers have been on a tear as of late, and they have Kawhi Leonard to thank for that. The reigning NBA Finals MVP has scored 30+ points in six consecutive games now. Leonard was once again spectacular in the Clips’ 110-107 win over the Dallas Mavericks on Tuesday. He finished with 36 points on 12-for-29 shooting with 11 rebounds and two assists to outlast the Mavs at American Airlines Center.

Players to Watch: Kawhi Leonard (27.1 PPG, 7.4 RPG and 5.0 APG)

Lou Williams (19.9 PPG, 3.0 RPG, 6.1 APG)

Montrezl Harrell (19.1 PPG and 7.2 RPG)

Atlanta Hawks Betting

After stunning San Antonio and Phoenix, the Atlanta Hawks dropped back-to-back games against Detroit and Toronto. In Monday’s 122-117 loss to the Raptors, Trae Young delivered another outstanding game with 42 points, 15 assists and 6 boards. John Collins had 17 points and 11 boards, but the Hawks turned the ball over 23 times.

Players to Watch: Trae Young (29.2 PPG, 4.7 RPG and 8.6 APG)

Jabari Parker (15.0 PPG and 6.0 RPG)

Los Angeles Clippers vs Atlanta Hawks Betting Picks

The Clippers are 8-2 in the last 10 games, most of these games without Paul George. The Hawks, on the other hand, are 3-7 in the last 10. Sports betting experts would have put the Clippers as a double-digit spread favorite if Leonard and George are both available for tonight’s ballgame. Then again, with George’s availability in question and the possibility of another Young’s scoring explosion, bookmakers have played it safe at a 6-point spread.

Moneyline: Back the Clippers at -195. Kawhi Leonard is feeling it right now. Young might be on his way to dropping another 40, but the Clippers have just too much in their arsenal to outscore the Hawks.

ATS: Bet on the Clippers to cover the 6-point spread. The Clippers blew the Hawks by 49 the last time. I expect another double-digit victory by the Clips.

TOTALs: Pick OVER at 231. Pick OVER at 231. The Clippers are scoring really well against sub .500 teams. The Hawks are also picking it up offensively too.

Score Prediction: 115 – 105 Hawks
