For the first time since before Christmas, the Clippers may actually see Paul George on the floor. While doubts still remain about whether or not George will see his first action since Dec. 22 due to an elbow injury, he is officially listed as questionable heading into tonight’s matchup against the Jazz. Utah has injury concerns of their own, notably Rudy Gobert, who missed last night’s game with a leg injury. Bojan Bogdanovic is also questionable, as he has missed eight straight games. The Clippers have been riding Reggie Jackson and a cast of characters to fill in for George, Kawhi Leonard and Norman Powell. Los Angeles comes off a brutal Friday night loss to the 76ers, marking the Clippers’ fifth straight defeat. Los Angeles has won just two of their last 10 games as they try to avoid falling below the eighth seed.
The Jazz dropped last night’s game to the Mavericks and watched Dallas move ahead of them in the fourth seed. Donovan Mitchell did suffer an ankle injury but is not listed on the report heading into tonight’s game. Utah is on a mini-skid right now, losing four straight games after winning six straight. Getting healthy is always the key in any stretch run, but the Jazz are still top 10 in both scoring average and defensive scoring average. Even if they see a limited George, the Jazz are in a prime spot to end their recent losing streak by taking advantage of an even worse freefall in the Clippers.

Jazz -1: -108 (FanDuel)
This line is asking the bettor to believe that all tailspins are created equal, which just is not the case tonight. While the Jazz are struggling, they lost four straight road games all against teams heading to the playoffs or play-in games. Utah is also a better team than Los Angeles no matter how much George plays tonight. There should be an expected level of rust from missing so much time, plus the team has created their own sense of identity, for better or worse. This is the get-right game that pops up towards the end of the NBA season. The value at OddsShopper found less juice on a number below 1.5 points. Books are normally asking -1.5 at -110, so OddsShopper found a break on both. The Clippers have dropped five straight but also failed to cover the spread in six straight games.
Make sure to check OddsShopper throughout the day for the best value and return on any NBA betting pick today. It is also important to check as Awesemo’s projections update and shift any initial data earlier in the day.
Donovan Mitchell Under 5.5 Rebounds: -144 (FanDuel)
The Jazz may get an offensive explosion from Mitchell on any given night, but do not expect him to pad his rebounds against Los Angeles. OddsShopper has a 76% chance of Mitchell staying under 5.5 rebounds, which reinforces this as a single play or an anchor in any parlay. Mitchell has gone under six rebounds in 10 of the 14 games played in March, as the break-even point for the -144 bet is 59%. OddsShopper also has a 28% xROI on this play that’s backed by a 4.2 rebound projection from Awesemo.
Mike Conley Over 1.5 3-Pointers: -145 (DraftKings)
This is another opportunity from OddsShopper to play a single bet or use this Mike Conley prop in a parlay. He should have some solid looks at the basket from deep tonight, regardless of who is out on the floor for the Clippers. Awesemo has Conley projected for just over two makes at 2.1, with a 62% chance of hitting the prop. Conley is averaging 1.8 makes in the month of March but has an easier matchup against the Clippers’ perimeter defense.

Nicolas Batum Over 0.5 Steals: -105 (DraftKings)
OddsShopper has this as one of the sharper plays for Nicolas Batum tonight, especially favoring an over in any category. Batum is projected to finish with 0.8 steals, and OddsShopper has a 56% chance of hitting the prop. Batum comes off a two-steal game and has a stretch of four games with at least one steal this month.
