DraftKings Sportsbook’s Best Promo Code & Bonus (Wednesday, Dec. 25): Christmas NBA
Kawhi Leonard to Score 30 or More Points & Clippers to Win
Boosted from +275 to +350
It’s tough to get a great sense for Kawhi’s scoring ceiling with this Clippers team, given how he’s been load managed throughout the season. Even when he plays, Leonard sometimes sees a less-than-full workload. That doesn’t appear it will be the case tonight in the Christmas showcase game against the rival Lakers.
Kawhi is averaging nearly 26 points per game this month — and that’s come in just 30.7 minutes. Our models have him projected to get around a 10% bump in playing time tonight (33.6 minutes).
In terms of the Clippers-to-win portion of this bet, a few of our NBA experts have already bet on them as slight underdogs against the Lakers. There’s certainly a case to be made that the Lakers are slightly overvalued in the market with both Anthony Davis and LeBron James expected to play. The Clippers beat the Lakers on opening night — and that was without Paul George, who will be playing tonight.
Other Christmas NBA Odds Boosts
Anthony Davis to have Over 2.5 blocks (boosted from +100 to +130)
The Clippers, on average, allow their opponents to block 4.9 shots per game. Davis himself is averaging 2.7 blocks this season. He’s been on a run of late, compiling three-plus blocks in three of his past four games.
Joel Embiid to score the first field goal (boosted from +500 to +600)
There aren’t a whole lot of analytics to back this one up. If you’re looking for a pure gamble, this is your bet. It’s nice to get the odds boost, as other sites have Embiid at +480 to score the first bucket.
