Los Angeles Clippers Betting

The Clippers after winning four straight games, they see-sawed in their last four with two wins and two losses alternately. Expect them to bank on defensive stops to prevail over the thunder with both Kawhi Leonard and Paul George leading the pack. The two players have combined for 50 points per game. This Doc Rivers team boasts a deep roster with Lou Williams and Montrezl Harrell each doing 19 points per game outside of those four players, role players Pat Beverley, Ivica Zubac and Landry Shamet have been great contributors for the team. All eyes now are on Paul George on what type of numbers he will provide for the Clippers against his former team.

Oklahoma City Thunder Betting

The Oklahoma City Thunder now are on a three-game winning streak and in their last game, they dominated the Phoenix Suns, 126-108. The game was decided early so the starters, aside from Shai Gileous-Alexander played above 30 minutes. SGA had a strong offensive night shooting 13-of-18 to finish with 32 points. Dennis Shroeder came of the bench and he did 24 points, nine rebounds and six assists. Steven Adams must try to carry his team by controlling the paint and rebounds for them to pull in closer. Interestingly, Clippers are Chris Paul’s old team so he also have a chip on his shoulder and he is someone to watch out for in this game.
