Best Clippers-Kings Player Prop Today: Paul George
The acquisition of James Harden has done wonders for Paul George in terms of the player prop bet we’re attacking tonight. In 11 games played with Harden, George has averaged 22 points, seven rebounds and 3.5 assists. So naturally, we’re backing George to go over 9.5 rebounds + assists at -105 on DraftKings Sportsbook.
In the last five games, it’s been Harden and then George who are accumulating the most assist opportunities. George is averaging 7.2 opportunities to Harden’s 13.2. Meanwhile, Russell Westbrook has taken a seat on the bench. He’s good for 25-plus minutes as a reserve, but his role is to lead the second group. In addition to Westbrook, Kawhi Leonard will see much of the usage while on the court. In the last five games, George has led the team in usage rate at 28%, but Lenoard is right behind him at 27%. Nonetheless, George will be asked to do a ton in a game featuring a total of 231 points — the second highest of the slate.
Our fingers will be crossed that the Kings won’t sit their starters for tonight’s game after winning in dramatic fashion last night. The Kings are currently 2-point underdogs on FanDuel Sportsbook, which should give bettors hope that Fox and Sabonis will suit up. In games that George has played at least 35 minutes in, his season average, he’s over his rebounds + assists line in seven of 10 games and is riding an eight-game hit streak to this prop. For more fun, George’s double-double prop is set at +600 on BetRivers — something he’s been close to accomplishing in the last 10 games.
