Clippers favored to force Game 7 vs. Suns

Oddsmakers expect a Game 7 in the NBA Western Conference finals and favor the Los Angeles Clippers to win Game 6 at home on Wednesday.

The Clippers won 116-102 as road underdogs in Game 5 at Phoenix on Monday night to push the series to a sixth game at Staples Center, even without two regular starters, thanks to a 41-point night from Paul George.

The Suns were favored by six points at most books when the game tipped off, but the Clippers quickly took control.

BetMGM installed the Clippers as a one-point home favorite in Game 6.

At PointsBet, the Suns remain the second favorite to win the NBA title behind the Milwaukee Bucks (-125) at +160. The Clippers are +800 and the Atlanta Hawks stand at +2500 entering Tuesday’s Game 4. The Bucks lead that series 2-1.

The Clippers don’t expect Kawhi Leonard to play in Game 6 because of a knee injury. Leonard hasn’t played in the series and there is doubt around whether center Ivica Zubac can return due to a sprained knee. He didn’t play in Game 5 after averaging 14 points and 13.7 rebounds in the three previous games in the series.
