Russell Westbrook Expected to Play Tonight Against the Clippers
Despite being 11-17 and at the bottom of the Southeast Division, the Washington Wizards are finally showing some life as they’ve been able to put together a five-game winning streak. The Wizards have as good of a chance as any team to make the playoffs this year, considering that the NBA will have a play-in tournament for teams seeded from seventh to tenth.
Washington’s recent run has given the team some optimism, which has probably led to Russell Westbrook’s pronouncement that he’ll no longer take a day off during back-to-back games. Westbrook is close to averaging a triple-double for the season with 19.9 points, 9.7 rebounds, and 9.7 assists.
After defeating the Lakers in overtime yesterday, the Wizards will remain in Los Angeles to take on the Clippers.
One Westbrook prop that could offer some value is playing his three-point field goals under 0.5. Westbrook has shot fewer three-pointers in his last two games, averaging just one per game. He’s yet to make a three-pointer in his last six games, and the decline in his attempts suggests that he currently has a lack of confidence in his ability to connect from a distance.
If you think the Clippers can hold Westbrook scoreless from the three-point line, then head over to FanDuel Sportsbook; where can this prop is valued at +185.
