Suns-Clippers Game 6 odds a near toss-up, per betting services
Which team between the Phoenix Suns and Los Angeles Clippers is a favorite in Game 6 of the Western Conference Finals?
Depends on where you’re putting your wager.
While the line opened with the Los Angeles Clippers as a one-point favorite for their final home game of the series, that’s fluctuated in the day since the game has been on the board, per OddsShark.com.
Bovada has the line now in favor of the visiting Suns by a point as of 6 a.m. Wednesday morning.
BetOnline, Intertops, GTBets and SportsBetting all remain in favor of the Clippers or have the game as even, though the lines have shifted from favoring Phoenix, to even, and then back with Los Angeles in some cases.
The Suns are coming off a 116-102 loss in Game 5 that saw them get down by 15 early on. They could never grab control despite at one point in the second half taking a brief one-point lead.
Phoenix has made its identity out of shrugging off such lackluster performances, and that’s been reflected in the betting circles. The team is 19-7 against the spread in the past 26 games that followed a straight up loss, according to OddsShark.com.
The Clippers, meanwhile, are 3-0 against the spread and straight up when facing elimination. Their head coach, Ty Lue, is known for coaching resilient teams.
He was in charge of the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2016 NBA Finals when they overcame a 3-1 series deficit against the Golden State Warriors, and Lue’s career mark in playoff elimination games is 10-2.
The over/under for Game 6 of Suns-Clippers opened at 216 and has fallen to 215 as of Wednesday morning.
