Sports Betting Preview on this NBA Playoffs Round 1, Game 5 matchup between the Dallas Mavericks vs Los Angeles Clippers.

Tipoff is set for this Tuesday, August 25th at 9pm et. The current NBA odds have the Clippers as -6.5 point favorites and the over/under at 236.5 total points. The betting public has 57% of their money on the Mavericks.

All the talk these past 24 hours has been on Luka Doncic huge 43 point, 17 rebound, and 13 assist night including the step back overtime dagger giving them the 135-133 win and tying up the series 2-2. Trey Burke and Tim Hardaway Jr. also stepped it up big time with the absence of Porzingis. They both combined for a total of 46 points including 7 of the Mavericks 13 3-pointers.

Porzingis is likely a game-time decision for Game 5 due to his sore right knee, per coach Rick Carlisle, In the last 3 games the Mavericks average 128 points per game, while the Clippers are right behind them at 125.7 points per game.

Dallas is 6-12 against the spread in their last 18 games and the total has gone over in 7 of the Mavericks’ last 9 games.

Los Angeles comes into this game with the mind set of missing a huge opportunity with Porzingis out last game and taking the 3-1 lead in the series. Now all eyes will be on Paul George, who’s been playing horrible this series. In the last 3 games, he’s shooting 10 of 47 from the field and 4 for 25 from 3 point land and only averaging 11.3 points. It’s time for him to step it up and we think he’ll finally do it in this game. Our numbers have him putting up 19+ points and 10 rebounds, so when the player props come out, make sure to check out the over if the price is right.

Los Angeles is 14-6 against the spread in their last 20 games.and the total has gone over in 8 of the Clippers’ last 10 games.
