For the third and final NBA props piece on Friday, January 26, we present you the Clippers vs Raptors Player Prop Bets. The Los Angeles Clippers visit Canada with hopes of getting the fourth straight win, while the Toronto Raptors are hopeful of avoiding the fourth consecutive defeat and ninth in 11 games.

Clippers vs Raptors Player Prop Bets – James Harden Over 8.5 Assists (-140)

James Harden is a top assist-maker on the Clippers this season with 8.5 apg. His scoring numbers significantly dropped in Los Angeles, but that’s understandable considering that Kawhi Leonard and Paul George are healthy.

The Beard is getting enough time on the floor, averaging 34.2 mpg, and although his usage is not the same anymore, Harden still contributes offensively. His contributions come in the form of assists; in ten of the previous 12 games, Harden registered 9+ dishes. Last time out, Harden had ten dishes against the Lakers and that was a winning bet for me.

The Clippers met Toronto once this season. It was a couple of weeks ago in Los Angeles and Harden struggled from the floor (5-13) for just 14 points. However, he did have 11 assists, which is not the first time this year that he can’t score enough points but delivers enough dimes to go over.

Toronto is not even in the top 20 when it comes to defense against assists. The Raptors allow 27.8 apg to the opponents, while they allow 9.2 apg to the opposing point guards.

Paul George Over 22.5 Points (-120)

For the second pick in the Clippers vs Raptors Player Prop Bets, I selected Paul George, not only because of solid arguments but also because there isn’t a good offer for Toronto’s players. George struggled on offense recently; he scored below 18 points in three of the last four games.

However, if we take a look at the bigger picture, PG13 went over 22.5 points in nine of the previous 13 games. In the lone H2H against the Raptors, George scored 29 points. His matchup against RJ Barrett is rather favorable, and I am sure George will bounce back on Friday.

After all, he is the team’s second-top scorer with 23.5 ppg. Toronto allows 22.8 ppg to the opposing small forwards, and the Clips scored 125+ points in five of their last six games. Los Angeles scored 126 in the most recent H2H.
