- Prediction: Top 3 seed in the West, a main contender for the NBA Championship.
- Pick: No recommended bet
The odds for the Los Angeles Clippers have dropped even further in comparison to the start of the summer. The team is viewed as one the top contenders for the NBA Championship and for a good reason.
And yet, I don’t think any of the prices right now is high enough for a bet. There are too many other franchises that will be strong, especially in the West.
After the summer that the LA Clippers had, it’s no surprise to see them as one of the favorites to win the NBA Championship. With Kawhi Leonard and Paul George on the roster, as well as the core from last season, this team is certainly among the best in the NBA.
It has two superstars, a strong bench, and a bunch of guys that play tough defense. The Clippers have the potential to be a top 5 franchise in both offense and defense.
Considering the injury records of both Kawhi and Paul George, I think they’ll control the load in the regular season. However, once the playoffs are here, this should be the team to beat.
As it stands, though, the odds for the Clippers are too short because of the euphoria around the team. So, we don’t recommend you back them right now. Instead, you should probably wait for a while and try to get a better value.
