3 Best Prop Bets for Clippers vs Timberwolves NBA Play-In Tournament Game on FanDuel Sportsbook
Tuesday's NBA slate of Play-In Tournament games includes a showdown between the LA Clippers and Minnesota Timberwolves. FanDuel Sportsbook is currently listing the Timberwolves as the 3-point home favorites over the Clippers.
Here's three of the best prop bets for the Clippers-Timberwolves game, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.
Clippers vs Timberwolves Player Props
1. Paul George - Points: Under 27.5 (-110)
Paul George has been relatively quiet ever since dropping 34 points in his return from injury on March 29. He's averaged an underwhelming 19.8 points on .400/.484/.800 shooting in the four subsequent contests. Although the Clippers' postseason success likely hinges on a superstar performance from PG13 against the Timberwolves, his recent play doesn't leave much to be trusted when it comes to this prop bet. Add in the fact that he finished with 23 or fewer points in two of three meetings against Minnesota this season and it's clear that the under is the way to go here.
2. Karl-Anthony Towns - Rebounds: Under 11.5 (-115)
While Karl-Anthony Towns is one of the more offensively-gifted centers in the NBA today, his rebounding numbers took a hit this season as he averaged a career-low 9.8 rebounds per game. What makes him even likelier to hit the under on this prop is the fact that he's finished with 11 or fewer boards in 10 of his last 11 contests. Towns also finished with the under on this prop in each of his three tilts against the Clippers this season, averaging 9.0 RPG in those contests. While Towns will make his presence felt on the scoreboard, don't expect a big rebounding performance from him.
3. Patrick Beverley - Assists: Under 4.5 (-110)
The Timberwolves have been great at ball movement this season, proven by their team average of 25.7 assists per game (No. 7). Patrick Beverley has been a consistent contributor to that average with his 4.6 APG in 58 contests. While that's above the total for this prop, there's reason to believe that Beverley will finish with the under tonight. For starters, he's finished with four or fewer assists in nine of his last 12 outings. Secondly, although he had eight assists in his first game against the Clippers this season, he averaged only 2.5 APG in the following two meetings. Add in the fact that a lingering ankle injury has been holding him back and it's easy to see how the under on this prop is the better option.
