Paul George of the Los Angeles Clippers has a tall task ahead of him and that’s beating the Golden State Warriors tonight without Nicolas Batum, Serge Ibaka and Kawhi Leonard.

WynnBET Sportsbook currently has George at +5000 to win the NBA MVP Award, but it will be interesting to see where his line goes if the Clippers can start strong while Leonard is still on the shelf.

Steph Curry posted a triple-double in his season debut for Golden State, recording 21 points, 10 rebounds, and 10 assists in a 121-114 win over the Lakers at Staples Center. Curry sits just behind Luka Doncic on WynnBET Sportsbooks’ odds for NBA MVP at +550.

Who will have more points in tonight's Warriors-Clippers matchup? George or Curry?

Here’s how the two scorers stack up statistically based on last year’s numbers.

George’s point total for tonight is set at 26 points (Over -115/Under -115) and Curry’s point total is set at 33.5 points (Over -115/Under -115). 

It’s hard for anyone to score more points than Curry in any given matchup, but I think Paul George does it tonight.

The Clippers are down a few men and I would expect George to be playing a large chunk of minutes tonight, possibly over 40 minutes. It’s Golden State’s home opener, and if anyone is going to hurt the Warriors on the scoreboard it will be George. 

Curry shot just five of 21 from the field in the opening game against the Lakers, and was two of eight from three-point range. I’ll bet it doesn’t all come back so quickly.

George will go over his point total of 26 and score more points than Curry tonight.
