NBA Betting Prediction: LA Clippers vs. Dallas Mavericks Game 3 4/26/2024

LA Clippers (51-31) vs. Dallas Mavericks (50-32)

As the NBA Playoffs heat up, the LA Clippers and Dallas Mavericks are set to clash in Game 3 of the first round on Friday, April 26, 2024. With the series shifting to the American Airlines Center, this matchup promises to be a crucial one for both teams. The Clippers, holding a slight edge with a 51-31 record, face a Mavericks team close on their heels at 50-32. This game not only highlights the competitive spirit of the playoffs but also offers some of the best live betting opportunities as the series unfolds.

The Clippers are hot from an offensive standpoint now, having scored 115.6 points per game, so far, which comes largely from their 48.9 percent of successful shots. While they are good scorers, the fact that they have lost in 3 out of the last 5 games speaks of an inherent weakness in their structure. During the season, they posted an ATS record of 20-21 when performing on the road, which indicates some lacks in the away games. The weakness at their frontline has been compensated by the deeper bench they have and the capacity to make three pointers which averages 12.6 per game.

As its counterpart, the Dallas Mavericks have been excellent in scoring efficiency with an average of 117.9 points per game and holding a bald advantage on the road with a record of 27-14 ATS. The Clippers key to victory has been their strong three-point shooting, as they are leading the league in average field goal attempts at 14.6 threes per game. Despite the percentage being a few points lower than the regular 48.1%, their ability to dominate the game and sink shots from even behind the arc have been key to their great performance this season.

Paul George (F) vs. Luka Doncic (PG)

Paul George has been a solid piece of the Clippers squad with them in all 74 games this season and averaging 22.6 points per game. He can put in work anywhere, contributing with 5.2 rebounds and 3.5 assists per game which is a nice match with his defensive skills, proven by 1.5 steals per game. Nonetheless, his influence is sometimes constricted by the turnovers and personal pity, and could be exploited in a high stakes playoff game which eventually could cost the match.

While on the other hand, Luka Doncic has been literally everything for the Mavericks, with a fantastic line of 33.9 points, 9.2 rebounds, and 9.8 assists per game. His power to be a big-time scoring and playmaking operator at the same time elevates him above others since his 4 turnovers per game might be a matter for a Clippers team which is well known to be good in defense.

The clash of these pivotal players is probably the game determining factor and the outcome could depend on how well they perform. They are both capable of shaping the game by themselves, but how they respond to pressure and the accuracy will complete the play.
