The NBA is planning to resume play in late July after putting the season on hold amid the Covid-19 pandemic. The Los Angeles Clippers are second to the Lakers in the Western Conference, but are among the favorites to compete for a championship in Orlando. Can the new-and-improved Clippers featuring Kawhi Leonard and Paul George overcome the frontrunners? DraftKings Sportsbook is offering a Name the Finalists market for each team and their potential NBA Finals matchups. Let’s take a look at all the odds offered for the Clippers.
Clippers vs. Bucks: +350
Clippers vs. Celtics: +2000
Clippers vs. Raptors: +2000
Clippers vs. Sixers: +2700
Clippers vs. Heat: +2700
Clippers vs. Pacers: +9000
Clippers vs. Magic: +25000
Clippers vs. Nets: +25000
A Clippers-Bucks matchup is the second most likely outcome on DraftKings Sportsbook. That makes sense when you consider that Milwaukee is favored to come out of the Eastern Conference while Los Angeles has the second best odds in the Western Conference. A Clippers-Raptors or Clippers-Celtics are equally likely at +2000 and are the second most probable outcomes should Los Angeles reach the final stage.
Betting on a Clippers-Raptors lineup seems enticing, as Toronto has managed to hold the second seed despite being banged up all year at key positions. Both its frontcourt and backcourt have been given time to get completely healthy. The reigning champs have experience making a deep playoff run and have returned most of the personnel from last year’s team.
