Betting on the Los Angeles Clippers (+7.5)

Regular Season Record: 44-38

The Clippers got the job done in Game 1, as they scored a 115-110 road win in Phoenix. Kawhi Leonard was at the top of his game in the series opener, exploding for 38 points and adding five rebounds and five assists, while Eric Gordon scored 19 points. Russell Westbrook shot just 3/19 from the field but made the most crucial defensive stop to help seal the deal for the Clippers, who have seen the total hit the Over in four of their last 10 outings. Over their last 10 games, the Clippers have averaged 120.5 points, 41.9 rebounds, 28.1 assists, 7.1 steals, and 4.9 blocks, while holding opponents to 117.7 points in that same span. The Clippers are also 7-3 against the spread in their last 10 Tuesday games.

Betting on the Phoenix Suns (-7.5)

Regular Season Record: 45-37

Phoenix’s first playoff game with Kevin Durant did not go as planned, but there’s nothing to feel overly concerned about – for now. Durant had 27 points on 7/15 shooting in Game 1, while Devin Booker had 26 points on 10/19 shooting. Phoenix is more than capable of responding with a comprehensive victory in Game 2, especially with a little bit of pressure on their shoulders. Over their last 10 games, the Suns have averaged 114.2 points, 45.7 rebounds, 27.8 assists, 6.4 steals, and 7.2 blocks, while holding opponents to only 108.3 points in that same span. The Suns are also 5-2 against the spread in their last seven after just a day of rest.

Writer’s Prediction

The Suns win, 114-106.
