The Los Angeles Clippers will try to regroup following a 113-103 Game 1 loss to the Dallas Mavericks in the opening round of the Western Conference playoffs. The No. 4 seed Clippers are a 7-point favorite in Game 2 at the Staples Center, and the FanDuel Sportsbook adjusted series odds shows the Clippers still a -154 favorite to win the series and the Mavericks at +124.

The Mavericks are taking more than 62% of the spread bets and money (handle) in Tuesday's Game 2, according to oddsfire NBA betting data at FanDuel Sportsbook.

Sports bettors are always attracted to other popular prop bets as the playoffs roll on. Using props and odds from FanDuel Sportsbook, here are three prop bets for Game 2 between the Clippers and Mavericks.

1. Kawhi Leonard - Over 33.5 Points + Assists (-111)

Kawhi Leonard had 26 points and 5 assists in Game 1 making 9-of-22 shots and just 1-of-6 three pointers. That included 13 points in the opening quarter. He's a popular prop bet to go over his point total in victory, and he can get there while adding more assists if he can reserve energy later after guarding Doncic more in Game 2.

2. Luka Doncic - Under 28.5 Points (-118)

Tyronn Lue is not a top-tier coach by any stretch, but at least he's figuring out (too late) how to better guard an opponent's best player. Defensive stalwart Leonard will guard Luka Doncic much more in Game 2. Doncic went off for 31 points on 11-of-24 shooting in Game 1. He added 10 rebounds, 11 assists and made five three-pointers. And 16 of his points came while being defended by Ivica Zubac, per NBA.com. But Leonard will be on Doncic's hip more often after only guarding Doncic for 1:43 of Game 1.

3. 1st Quarter Line / Total Double - LA Clippers -1.5 / Under 54.5 (+230)

The Clippers are going to come out with a desperate and determined defensive effort in Game 2. That should include slowing down Doncic and the Mavericks. That could lead to an early Clippers' advantage in a low-scoring game, and this is juiced nicely at +230.
