Suns vs. Clippers Betting Preview: NBA Picks & Odds
Suns vs. Clippers Game Info
Phoenix Suns (62-25, 29-14 Away) vs. Los Angeles Clippers (57-33, 31-14 Home)
Date: Wednesday, June 30, 2021
Start Time: 9 p.m. EST
Venue: STAPLES Center — Los Angeles, Calif.
After a defensive clinic in Game 4 of this series, the Suns lacked the same intensity and focus right from the jump on Monday night. Phoenix quickly found themselves down by 10 after the first quarter as NBA betting favorites and could never recover. They were outscored in every quarter but the second. If not for a 3-pointer by Devin Booker to beat the halftime buzzer, the Suns would have only finished even with Los Angeles in that second frame. Booker had a strong performance with 31 points, four rebounds and three assists. Chris Paul was also sharp with 22 points and eight assists. Although he did finish with a double-double, Game 5 was a bit of a letdown for Deandre Ayton. The Suns will need more than 10 points from their center if they are to close out a series win.
In a way, it was hilarious to listen to the ESPN announcers belittle Paul George at the end of the first half. Sure, it wasn’t his best 24 minutes of basketball, yet the Clippers had the lead and were getting all kinds of contributions from other places. Perhaps a lightened first half load was what enabled George to take over after the break. He wound up with a massive line of 41 points, 13 rebounds and six assists. Both Reggie Jackson and Marcus Morris were also phenomenal in the huge Game 5 win, with 23 and 22 points, respectively. After Ivica Zubac was a late scratch due to injury, the Clippers got a huge boost from DeMarcus Cousins. He scored 15 points and dished three assists in just 11 minutes of action. Could he possibly play a bigger role in Game 6 tonight?

Suns vs. Clippers Prediction
It is quite clear that the NBA betting market and oddsmakers aren’t quite sure which way to go on this one. Bettors can find either team favored at different sportsbooks ahead of Game 6. Depending on the side, shopping the odds is more critical than ever tonight. While the Suns are the deeper and more talented team overall, the Clippers just seem to have a way of coming through this postseason. It seems pretty safe to say that Phoenix will turn up the heat defensively after losing on their home floor the other night. Look to play the total under, and also consider a Suns moneyline prediction should extremely favorable odds emerge prior to tip-off.
Prediction: Under 215 (-110)
