The 2021 NBA season is in full swing. Tuesday's basketball action features a primetime matchup between the Portland Trail Blazers and Los Angeles Clippers.
Here's three of the best prop bets for Blazers-Clippers, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.
Blazers vs Clippers Player Props
1. Damian Lillard - Points: Under 25.5 (-106)
It's no secret Damian Lillard has struggled to score this season. He's recorded more than 26 points in just one game this year as he's cratered in two key areas of his game: 3-point percentage (24.7%) and made free throws (2.9 per game). His current cold shooting streak has shown no signs of warming up anytime soon. The fact he's combined for just 37 points in two games against the Clippers this season proves it's not the matchup for him to break out.
2. Paul George - Made Threes: Over 3.5 (+144)
Paul George's recent shooting woes present an intriguing opportunity here. He's gone just 2-of-17 over his last two games from deep. Prior to that, though, he averaged 3.9 makes on 42.2% shooting from 3-point range over the first seven contests. That included a 6-of-9 outing against these same Blazers. Portland is one of the worst defenses at stopping opponents from deep (37.0%), making this a perfect bounce-back opportunity against a familiar foe.
3. Jusuf Nurkic - Rebounds: Over 10.5 (-104)
Jusuf Nurkic is dominating on the boards to start the year. He's currently averaging 11.9 rebounds per game and has at least 12 boards in half of his games played so far. He set a season high with 17 rebounds on Oct. 29 against LA, and he also grabbed another 10 boards against them on Oct. 25. It's clear Ivica Zubac can't handle the Bosnian Beast, and Serge Ibaka is still working his way back after just making his season debut on Sunday. Nurkic should thrive in this matchup once again.
