Betting on the Los Angeles Clippers (+11.5)

Regular Season Record: 44-38

Kawhi Leonard is considered doubtful at the time of this writing for Game 5. He has missed the last two games, including last Saturday’s 112-100 home loss to Phoenix. In any case, the Clippers will continue to lean on the production of Russell Westbrook, who is putting up 26.0 points, 11.5 rebounds, and 7.3 assists in the series for Los Angeles. The Clippers are 5-1 against the spread in their last six games after losing a game by more than 10 points. Over their last 10 games, the Clippers have averaged 117.7 points, 41.5 rebounds, 23.9 assists, 6.6 steals, and 5.0 blocks per game, while making 48.6 percent of their attempts from the field.

Betting on the Phoenix Suns (-11.5)

Regular Season Record: 45-37

The Suns can feel it. Kevin Durant and Devin Booker are having a field day producing for Phoenix’s offense, with the Clippers missing their best players. Durant scored 31 points in Game 4, while Booker cooked 3- points. So far in the first round of the 2023 NBA Playoffs, the Suns are generating 118.5 points on 50.7 percent shooting. Over their last 10 games, the Suns have averaged 115.7 points, 44.4 rebounds, 26.4 assists, 7.0 steals, and 6.6 blocks, while knocking down 48.2 percent of their shots from the field. The Suns are 9-4 against the spread in their last 13 games in the first round of the playoffs.

Writer’s Prediction

The Suns win, 112-107.
