NBA Playoffs Sports Betting Preview on this Western Conference Semifinals Game 1 between the Denver Nuggets vs Los Angeles Clippers. This matchup is set to tip off Thursday, September 3rd at 9:00pm et.

The current NBA odds have the Clippers as -8.5 point favorites with the over/under at 223 total points. The betting public has 79% of their money behind LA.

Denver comes into this game fresh off a crazy game 7 win against the Jazz Tuesday Night after being down 3-1 in the series. Jamal Murray played lights out in that series, shooting 55% from the field and averaging over 31 points per game, but now Kawhi Leonard and Paul George will be guarding him, so expect those number to decrease substantially. Nikola Jokic had an impressive first round against one of the best defensive centers in the league, Rudy Gobert and he should have no problem against this Clippers frontline.

Denver is 0-5 straight up in their last 5 games against an opponent in the Pacific Division and the total has gone over 13 of Nuggets last 15 games.

Los Angeles comes into this game taking care of business in round 1 against the beat up Mavericks. The Mavericks gave the Clippers a real fight, led by Luka Dončić, but without their second best player, Kristaps Porzingis, they had no real shot at moving forward. The Clippers will depend on Leonard to get them 30 points a night, but they’ll also need Paul George to play to his abilities if they want to face the Rockets or Lakers in the next round.

Los Angeles is are 6-2 against the spread in their last 8 games and the total has gone over in 4 of the Clippers’ last 5 games.

Our numbers show the best opportunity to make money in this Denver Nuggets vs Los Angeles Clippers game is to take the Nuggets Over 53.5 points in the first half at the -115 price.
