Los Angeles Clippers Betting Preview
The Los Angeles Clippers look for another win to improve to 3-1 on the season. The Los Angeles Clippers have won 5 straight home games. The Los Angeles Clippers are averaging 121.3 points on 52.3 percent shooting and allowing 104.7 points on 43.1 percent shooting. Paul George is averaging 27.3 points and 3.7 rebounds, while Kawhi Leonard is averaging 23 points and 5.7 rebounds.

The Los Angeles Clippers are shooting 41.4 percent from beyond the arc and 73.8 percent from the free throw line. The Los Angeles Clippers are allowing 34.9 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 43 rebounds per game.
The Los Angeles Clippers are off to a fine start offensively, they have the rest advantage, and now the players should have an added pep in their step with the trade for James Harden. The Orlando Magic are playing well through 3 games, but this is a tough schedule spot after playing last night. It was an emotional game where the Magic lost on the last shot, and it could be tough for a young team to get off the canvas so quickly. Suggs was very disappointed after missing the tying shot at the buzzer. Give me the Clippers and the reasonable chalk.
