1.5 units on Los Angeles -195 (moneyline) (risk 1.5 to return 2.27) RESULT: win
1 unit on Game Total OVER 223 -107 (risk 1 to return 1.93) RESULT: win
Los Angeles is going home down 0-2 in the series and that has been historically a good bet on the home team as it's in a desperate situation against an opponent who will be a little complacent. Donovan Mitchell was too much for the Clippers in Game 2 as he scored 37 points while Jordan Clarkson hit six 3-pointers and Rudy Gobert grabbed 20 rebounds. Still, the Clippers had a chance, but they missed nine straight shots down the stretch and fell short 117-111. The game went OVER by 4.5 points and the Jazz now are 6-1 OVER their last seven games. The Clippers lost the first two games at home in the Dallas series and came back to win four of the next five so this is nothing new for them and they still have plenty of firepower with Kawhi Leonard, Paul George and Reggie Jackson, who combined for 77 points on Thursday. Take the Clippers on the money line and the OVER.
