We go over some of the best betting options for the NBA second round 2021 NBA playoff matchup between the Utah Jazz and LA Clippers on Saturday.

The Utah Jazz and Los Angeles Clippers meet in Game 3 Saturday with the West’s No. 1 seed holding a 2-0 lead over Kawhi Leonard and Paul George. LA will look to get back in the series at home while Utah tries to get one step closer to the conference finals, a place the franchise hasn’t been since 1997-98.

Jazz vs. Clippers, 8:30 p.m. ET, ABC

Pick ATS: Jazz +4.5

Games 1 and 2 were both close contests and the Clippers have been maddening to figure out. While they’re favored to win, don’t expect a blowout. Leonard should bring his best, but George has not helped the cause. Los Angeles might win the game, but it’ll come down to the wire. Take Utah against the spread.

Player Prop: Donovan Mitchell points, rebounds and assists over 40.5 (-121)

Mitchell has been one of the rising stars of these playoffs, taking over Games 1 and 2 for Utah. He could hit this total on points alone given his recent performances, but throw in rebounds and assists and this becomes a relatively safe prop bet.
