DraftKings NBA Playoffs

Los Angeles Clippers Moneyline -180 at Draftkings Sportsbook
The Pelicans have dominated this matchup throughout the year. The Clippers are a different team than at the beginning of the season. The Clippers are healthier than during most of the season and are the hot team in this matchup. The Clipper’s only loss this month is against the Timberwolves. The Pelicans are 4-3 this month. One of those losses includes a 119-100 loss against the Clippers within those seven games. The Clippers are more consistent right now. 

Atlanta Hawks Moneyline -120 at Draftkings Sportsbook
The Cleveland Cavaliers are struggling to get their defense together right now. That will be the decider of this game. Allen being on the sideline has hurt them on the defensive end and has let opposing teams get in the paint and score high percentage shots. The Hawks want to get into a shootout in this game. The Hawks have plenty of scorers. That will be the difference in this game, who can score consistently. 

Clint Capela Over 12.5 -110 at Draftkings Sportsbook
Clint Capela has scored over 12.5 four games in a row, and with Allen, on the sideline, he will have an opportunity to do it again. The Cavaliers are struggling on defense, and without Allen, we saw against the Nets what opposing big men do to the Cavs. Andre Drummond scored 16 points against the Cavs, and he is only averaging 7.9 points a game this season. Capela has everything going for him in this matchup.
