Dallas Mavericks vs LA Clippers Game 5: BETTING TIPS, PREDICTION & BETTING ODDS

A slow start in Game 4 was just too much to overcome for the Mavericks down the stretch as they let home court advantage slip away ahead of Game 5. Tonight’s game is a pivotal one, whoever wins will have a chance to advance in the next one. It’s all about the status of Luka Doncic for the Mavericks here, his knee is causing him massive problems, especially on the defensive end where opposing players are blowing right by him. It goes without saying that Dallas is cooked if their superstar is playing on one leg, no matter who the opponent is. The good news is the Mavs still have Kyrie Irving to pick up the slack offensively, he finished with a team high 40 points on Sunday, including 6 threes made. Mavs are just 4-8 ATS in the last 12 meetings vs the Clippers.

LA also has it’s fair share of injuries right now. The biggest one is obviously Kawhi Leonard who has been ruled out once again with his knee inflammation not getting any better. James Harden did exactly what he was supposed to in Game 4, putting in a vintage performance with 33 points and 7 assists. Paul George equaled the tally and mesmerized everyone with 7 threes made on just 10 attempts. Those two will likely have to repeat that performance if the Clippers want to go back in front, I’m willing to bet Harden has a better chance of doing so since his primary defender is a hobbled Luka Doncic. LA also has the x-factor on the inside and that is Ivica Zubac who is proving to be too big and too agile for the Mavs interior defense.

LA Clippers Point Spread Prediction

Clippers +3 Point Spread is available at -110 odds

The road team has won 2 of the last 3 games here, at some point home court advantage has to become a factor. If the Clippers can get off to a hot start once again, I really like their chances here. Doncic is clearly hurt right now, until he gets better I’m picking the Clippers. LA to cover in Game 5.

Dallas Mavericks vs LA Clippers Game 5 Total Points: Under 207

Under 207 Total Points is available at -110 odds

It took us four games, but the flood gates finally opened and we get ourselves a high scoring game on Sunday. However, the stakes are pretty high in Game 5 and I am not expecting any team to get anything easy here. This has been a hard fought series by two defensive minded coaches, resulting in the 3rd slowest match-up in the first round of the playoffs. Mavericks leader Doncic is shooting under 40% for the series, it took 40 points from Kyrie Irving for Dallas to put up 111 points in Sunday’s Game 4. The degree of difficulty scoring the ball becomes much greater on the road, the Mavs are yet to score 100 points at crypto.com Arena this season in 3 visits. The under has cashed in 5 straight meetings in this building and in 8 of the last 10 overall. It won’t be a pretty game to watch, but if you’re a hardcore 1990s NBA fan you’re in for a treat. Back the under in this one.
