We go over some of the best betting options for Friday’s matchup between the Los Angeles Clippers and Milwaukee Bucks.

Update: The Clippers have ruled out Reggie Jackson, Nicolas Batum and Paul George. The Bucks have countered by ruling out Giannis Antetokounmpo, Khris Middleton, Jrue Holiday and Brook Lopez. I hope you took the under on the total this morning before it dropped to 219. The line is now Bucks -4, although LA might still be the play there.

The Los Angeles Clippers and Milwaukee Bucks both come into this game after overtime outings Thursday, potentially making this a game filled with backup players as the stars gear up for the playoffs. As we wait for the injury report for both teams, it seems like everyone should be in play.

The Bucks are 7-point favorites according to DraftKings Sportsbook, with the total set at 226.

Clippers vs. Bucks, 8:00 p.m. ET

Pick ATS: Clippers +4 (was Clippers -7)

This could change depending on who eventually suits up and even though the Clippers are 3-7 ATS in the last 10 games, Paul George being back helps their cause. On the second game of a back-to-back for teams, expect some tired legs overall and a close contest. Seven points is a lot in this scenario, so back LA to cover.

Over/Under: Under 219 (was previously 226)

This is a somewhat high number and depending on who sits, it could be inflated. Either way, both teams are likely not going to be able to go all-out in this one. The under is the safer play for now.
