Despite the Phoenix Suns holding a 2-1 lead over the Los Angeles Clippers in the Western conference finals, the betting public seems to like LA despite Kawhi Leonard remaining out with a knee injury.

According to the latest splits from DraftKings Sportsbook, 60 percent of bets are coming on the Clippers. Los Angeles is +350 to win the series after storming past the Suns in the third quarter of Game 3 to cut Phoenix’s series lead in half. 60 percent of the money on the series is also trending LA’s way.

Paul George continues to lead the Clippers despite Leonard sidelined, but Reggie Jackson and Terance Mann are emerging as vital cogs in LA’s rotation. Jackson is providing relief as a secondary scorer and Mann brings energy and effort to give the Clippers an edge they may have been missing last year.

The Suns, who are -480 to win the series, are receiving 40 percent of the money and bets. Phoenix got point guard Chris Paul back in Game 3, but he and Devin Booker struggled from the field in a 106-92 loss.

Game 4 is Saturday at 9:00 PM ET.
