Paul George remains out for tonight’s game with a hamstring injury while Patrick Beverley is doubtful with a groin injury. George is putting up 23.5 points and 6.0 rebounds per game for Los Angeles. Kawhi Leonard is leading the team with 27.1 points, 7.4 rebounds and 5.0 assists per contest.

Heat grind out wins

Miami is coming off back-to-back OT wins over the Kings and Wizards at home this week. The Heat have won four of their last five games. The Heat are 31-13 on the season, 20-1 at home, 25-17-2 against the spread and 27-16-1 with the over.

Miami is giving up 108.4 points per game while holding opponents to 44.5 percent shooting from the field and 32.6 percent from the arc. The Heat have Kendrick Nunn, Jimmy Butler and Goran Dragic all listed as questionable to go tonight due to injury. Those three combined for over 50 points per game as they are the three leading scorers. Butler is leading the team with 20.3 points, 7.0 rebounds and 6.5 assists per contest. Bam Adebayo is adding 15.8 points and 10.5 rebounds per contest.

NBA Betting Trends

Los Angeles

The Clippers are 9-4 against the spread in their last 13 games playing on 1 day of rest, but 1-8 ATS in their last nine Friday games.


The Heat are 16-5-1 against the spread in their last 22 home games and 9-2 ATS in their last 11 games as a home underdog.


Injuries are going to play a big factor in tonight’s game as both teams are possibly going to be without big contributors. The Clippers are definitely short handed and the Heat are possibly without their top three. Miami has a little more hope for their injured players tonight. The big thing that is hard to overlook is 20-1 at home this year. When you play that well at home, it is hard to pass up betting on them getting points. Especially against a Los Angeles team that is just 12-10 on the road and without two key players.
