I’m not gonna lie, this isn’t the most original prop you’ll ever see. I am gonna take LeBron over points vs the Clips. LeBron is in the midst of yet another incredible year, and his numbers rise noticeably with the frequent absence of Anthony Davis. Davis will be out the next several weeks so I’ll be eyeing this prop often, especially when set at 29.5.
LeBron has played 20 games without AD this season, and is over this number in 16 of them. He has averaged 32.7 in those games. When we look deeper into games at home, LeBron has hit in 9/11 without Davis. The Clippers defense is solid, and perhaps a big factor into why this is set at 29.5 instead of 31.5, but with LeBron’s ability and consistency I am thrilled to bet him to get to the 30 point mark tonight.
(I wouldn’t be surprised if this flips to 30.5 by the time of publishing, and I would still take it there) .
