NBA Betting Preview: Picks, Odds & Betting Trends Tonight
Los Angeles Clippers (43-20, 19-12 Away) vs. Phoenix Suns (43-18, 23-9 Home)
Date: Wednesday, April 28, 2021
Time: 10 p.m. EST
Venue: PHX Arena — Phoenix, Ariz.
The Clippers enter this game fresh off a loss. However, they had won 11 of their 12 games prior. Simply put, they were off last game. Paul George hit just 3 of 11 shots in 25 minutes while also turning the ball over four times. Tonight Awesemo projects George to score about 26 points, leading the team in scoring. Kawhi Leonard has missed the previous four games due to a foot injury, and he is listed as doubtful to play tonight. Marcus Morris has stepped up in his absence, scoring double digits in each of the past seven games. Awesemo projects Morris to be the second-leading scorer on the team, keeping the double-digit points going.
The Suns enter this game off a win after losing back-to-back games. They wrapped up a five-game road trip and will play their first home game since April 17. The Suns are 10-1 in their last 11 home games and are led by their backcourt, who have been fantastic this season. Chris Paul has stepped up his play during this month, averaging 16.4 points and 8.9 assists. Devin Booker has continued to be steady, averaging 25.4 points, including back-to-back 30-point games. Tonight Awesemo projects Paul and Booker to score 15 and 25, respectively. After Los Angeles won the previous two meetings, Phoenix will look to prevent the sweep tonight.

Clippers vs. Suns Prediction
The Suns have been fantastic at home this season, going 20-12 against the spread. They are also 29-19-1 against the spread as favorites, while the Clippers are 16-14-1 against the spread on the road. With Leonard out and the Suns starters looking good, I’m siding with Phoenix to prevent the sweep and cover the spread.
