Kawhi Leonard (SF) vs. Luka Doncic (PG)

Clippers’ star forward Kawhi Leonard featured during all the games with an average of 23.7 points and 6.1 rebounds per game. However, his inability to work with other players that were equally skilled made it hard for him to fit in with the team, and prevented him from developing his game. Although Leonard’s turnover rate has been problematic and his capability to deal with pressure in playoffs is indispensable for the Clippers to win their championship.

On the other hand, the charismatic captain of the Mavericks by the name Luka Doncic is almost godly, with him leading his team with 33.9 points and 9.8 assists per game. His spectaculars and spectacular ability to gather the ball and generation of plays makes him one overall threat. On the contrary, the higher turnover per game that he averages (4 in a game) could become a cause for worry in tight matchups.

These two figures are often the most influential in deciding the outcome of the game should they enter into a head-to-head duel. There will be a great battle of wits between Leonard’ defense and offensive diversity. This encounter intends to demonstrate who is strong and who is vulnerable, carry a message for those who win and give a clue for those who lose.


NBA Odds/Point Spread: TBD, Total Odds: TBD

As the odds have yet to be determined, keeping an eye on how the spread and moneyline evolve will provide insights into public and expert sentiment as game day approaches.


LA Clippers Betting Trends

The Clippers are currently in a slump, both straight up (2-3 in the last 5 games) and against the spread (1-4 in the last 5 games). This trend hints at a possible problem of handling pressure or sustaining the consistency, which can be aggravated in an elimination game organized away from home.


Dallas Mavericks Betting Trends

To the contrary, the Mavericks have improved with the same outcome, being 3 wins and spread covers (3-2 in both cases). Their own performance against the spread at home this season shows that they have the ability of taking advantage of the home court advantage in the playoffs.


LA Clippers vs. Dallas Mavericks 4/28/24 Betting Picks

Given the trends and the home-court advantage, the Mavericks might be the safer bet in this matchup. Their ability to outscore and cover spreads at home gives them an edge, especially with the Clippers’ recent struggles on the road. For prop bets, considering Doncic for a high points total could be wise given his scoring track record this season.

With both teams boasting high-powered offenses, the over might be tempting, especially if the game becomes a shootout. However, with the details of the spreads and totals still pending, it’s advisable to monitor updates on the latest NBA Playoffs picks closely before finalizing any bets.
