LA Clippers vs Dallas Mavericks Game 3: BETTING TIPS, PREDICTION & BETTING ODDS

Kawhi Leonard returned to the line-up in Game 3, but the Clippers laid an egg at home and we now have ourselves a series. In what was one of their lowest scoring games of the year, the Clippers managed just 93 points, 15 of them came from Leonard who seemed to run out of gas late. That’s understandable for a player who just came back from an injury that kept him out for almost 3 weeks. As time goes on Kawhi will only get better, until then the Clippers have to find a way to stay afloat in this series. Winning at Dallas won’t be an easy task, but they’ve already done it once in the regular season. So far in the 2 games of this series I’ve been impressed the most by their center Ivica Zubac who has posted a double-double in both games.

Losing Daniel Gafford was a big blow for the Mavs in Game 2, they’re already thin at the center position. The good news is head coach Jason Kidd shortened the rotation, gave more minutes to P.J. Washington and it’s paid off. However, Game 3 will be a lot more difficult as the Mavs now have to confirm home court advantage after stealing it in the previous game. Luka Doncic is yet to shoot 50% from the field in the series, playing in front of the home crowd might improve his numbers a bit, if Leonard isn’t at 100% the Clippers simply don’t have an answer for him. Dallas is a 4.5-point favorite for Game 3, they went 25-16 at home this season and are currently on a run of 14 covers in 18 games vs West coast opponents.

LA Clippers Point Spread Prediction

Clippers +4.5 Point Spread is available at -110 odds

As impressive as that Dallas win was in Game 2, that won’t mean much if they are unable to follow it with a similar performance on Friday. I expect another close game, from a betting standpoint it actually makes more sense to back the underdog here. LA has covered in 7 of the last 10 meetings and was able to split the 2 meetings in Dallas during the regular season. Clippers to cover.

LA Clippers vs Dallas Mavericks Game 3 Total Points: Over 209.5

Over 209.5 Total Points is available at -110 odds

We’ve had at least one of the two teams shoot below 40% in the opening 2 games of this series so far, I refuse to believe all 7 of these games will be a dog fight. There’s simply too much talent on both teams for us to see another sub-100 point game from both teams. With Gafford out of the line-up, look for the Clippers to exploit their match-up at the center position as much as they can, they have a healthy Zubac who has posted career numbers so far in 2 games played. Leonard getting into rhythm will also result in him scoring more here, plus I’m expecting Doncic to do better than the 42% from the field he’s posting so far in the series. These two teams are averaging 212.9 points per game between them in the last 10 meetings, the 2 meetings in Dallas during the regular season saw 270 and 231 points respectively. I don’t think we’ll go in the 230s here, but the two teams should be able to get to at least 210 points. I’m backing the over.
