The Golden State Warriors will host the Los Angeles Clippers in the nightcap on Wednesday evening. Kevon Looney (34% opening-tip win rate) will face off against Ivica Zubac (38% win rate) on the opening-tip. The two centers have faced off against each other four times last season, with Looney controlling the tip in three of them.

Despite having a sub-par win rate on opening tip-offs, the Warriors have been fairly successful on opening possessions and have scored first in 56% of games this season. The Warriors have the highest first team field goal percentage in the league at 72%.


To place your bets on this and many, many other markets across the world of sports, head over to FanDuel Sportsbook right now!


The Clippers have struggled on opening possessions, averaging 2.3 field goal attempts to make their first field goal.  The Clippers will also be without their stars, Paul George and Kawhi Leonard, both of whom are out due to injuries tonight. I think that will make it harder for the Clippers to score first.

The Clippers have allowed the opposing shooting guards to score the first team field goal in 44% of games this season. Klay Thompson and Andrew Wiggins have led the way for Golden State, each scoring the first team field goal four times this season.

I’m going with  Thompson first basket tonight and will pair him with Wiggins for my play.

The Pick: Klay Thompson first basket (+800, 0.5 units; play down to +550) | Andrew Wiggins first basket (+650, 0.5 units; play down to +500)
