Wednesday's full NBA slate features 11 games, and the Los Angeles Clippers at Utah Jazz will draw plenty of betting interest at 10:00 p.m. ESPN. The Jazz (19-7) are a 9.5-point favorite over the Clippers (16-12) with a total of 217.5. But prop bets will prove popular in this contest with last year's Defensive Player of the Year Rudy Gobert and star Donovan Mitchell popular players.

Clippers stud Paul Georgie (elbow) is questionable and has missed LA's last three games. Check his status before placing your wagers.

Here's three of the best prop bets for the Clippers-Jazz game, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.

1. Away Team Total Points: Under 103.5 (-104)

Both the Clippers and Jazz rank top-5 in the NBA in ESPN'sdefensive efficiency ratings. The Clippers offense is in the bottom quartile, and Los Angeles scored just 102 and 99 points in two recent road games against bottom tier-defenses of Portland and Sacramento with George in the lineup. Points will be tougher to come by for Los Angeles without George, and especially inside. The Jazz also lead the NBA in rebounding rate, making second chance points more difficult as well.

2. Player Performance Double: Donovan Mitchell 25+ Pts/Utah To Win (+136)

The Jazz have won seven straight games, including four in a row on the road, as they return home to Vivint Sport Home Arena for six straight home games. Donovan Mitchell has been on a tear, scoring at least 28 points in five of the Jazz's last six games and making 4 or more 3-pointers in his last five games. The Jazz are a likely winner especially if Paul George is out again for the Clippers. Rather than play Mitchell over 25.5 points scored (-102), take the solid plus price on Spida-Man Mitchell to hit 25-plus points in a Jazz win.

3. Bojan Bogdanovic - Player Threes: Under 2.5 (-136)

The Clippers' 3-point defense is among the best in the league, along with the Jazz. Los Angeles has allowed less than 31% shooting from beyond the arc over their last three games. Bogdanovic's minutes and 3-point volume has dipped the last two games, and the Jazz league-best 2-point shooting and offensive efficiency should have them shooting and scoring more inside with George likely out.
