Game 6 is a must win for the Los Angeles Clippers, who trail the Dallas Mavericks 3-2 in their opening Western Conference NBA Playoffs series. The Clippers are up to a 3-point road favorite, according to spread betting odds on FanDuel Sportsbook.
Leonard is averaging 30 points per game in the series, and he'll have to score more again, but this time in victory. Leonard's Game 6 points prop is over/under 29.5.
Which players are going to deliver in an elimination game? Using props and odds from FanDuel Sportsbook, here are three player prop bets for Game 6 between the Clippers and Mavericks.
1. Kristaps Porzingis - Under 22.5 Points + Rebounds (-118)
Kristaps Porzingis averaged 23.7 points and 8.7 rebounds in last year’s playoff series against the Clippers before injury knocked him out after three games. This year he’s averaging 13.8 points and 4.4 rebounds. The Clippers continue to drape players over Porzingis as he hangs out in the corners most of the game. In Game 5, he had few touches and took just six shots and scored a series-low 8 points. In Game 4, Porzingis scored just 9 points with 4 rebounds while playing 34 minutes. He's sacrificing for the team, and bettors can cash in again on less production.
2. Luka Doncic - Under 39.5 Points + Rebounds (-113)
Luka Doncic is averaging a series-high 35 points per game against the LA Clippers. At some point, Clippers coach Tyronn Lue will figure out how to slow the Mavericks star. In Game 6, fatigue will be a factor and start to settle in. Doncic comes off a 42-point performance while playing more than 42 minutes in Game 5. He took an amazing 37 shots from the field in the 105-100 victory. After Doncic went off for 44 points in Game 3, he scored just 19 points with 6 rebounds in Game 4 at home. Doncic is carrying an enormous load, and he wore down during the fourth quarter of Game 5 after scoring 40 points through the first three quarters. Los Angeles needs to ramp up the defensive pressure with smaller, more switchable lineups.
3. Nicolas Batum - Over 14.5 Points + Rebounds (+100)
Most bets are on the star players points, but Nicolas Batum has emerged the last two games as a starter after coming off the bench. The Clippers have had to rotate more players and bodies to try and slow Luka Doncic, and Batum has produced 7, 5 and 6 rebounds the past three games while scoring 10 points in each contest. In Game 1, he had 11 points and 7 rebounds. Batum is a versatile player up front who can use his length and athleticism to produce again to get over this prop.
