Paul George is averaging 25 points and 7.3 rebounds, while Reggie Jackson is averaging 17.5 points and 4 assists. Marcus Morris Sr. is the third double-digit scorer and Luke Kennard is grabbing 3.3 rebounds. The Los Angeles Clippers are shooting 36 percent from beyond the arc and 79.7 percent from the free throw line. The Los Angeles Clippers are allowing 33.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 44.2 rebounds per game.
The Utah Jazz are averaging 115 points on 47.9 percent shooting and allowing 104.4 points on 44 percent shooting. Donovan Mitchell is averaging 24.6 points and 5 assists, while Bojan Bogdanovic is averaging 16.9 points and 3.9 rebounds.

The Clippers are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games playing on 1 days rest. The Jazz are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 Wednesday games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The under is 4-1 in Clippers last 5 overall. The over is 5-1-1 in Jazz last 7 overall. The Clippers are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Utah and 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings.
The Los Angeles Clippers are finding ways to win games and just beat the Suns, but they're still banged up, and I don't want to back them on the road without PG13 on the court. The Utah Jazz are heating up, and that includes winning their last five games by an average of 17.4 points while shooting 51 percent from the field. The Jazz also win at home by an average of 10.3 points. I have no choice but to lay the chalk here with the Jazz. However, you should check if PG13 plays or not before locking in a bet.
