The fifth season of the annual Play of the Day betting competition between the Sun's sports staff is now under way, effective July 1.
Bankrolls start at $10,000 for each of the four participants, with the objective to increase it as much as possible over the next year. The minimum daily wager is $300, with a $200 penalty assessed for failing to place a bet on an assigned day.
Past winners are Case Keefer in 2017-2018, Ray Brewer in 2016-2017 and 2015-2016, and Taylor Bern in 2014-2015.
Los Angeles Clippers plus-4.5 vs. Toronto Raptors: $660 to win $600
The Clippers are playing their second game in two nights, but they are one of the hottest teams in the league (despite needing overtime to dispatch the Phoenix Suns last night) and should be especially pumped for this game. Toronto is sitting atop the Eastern Conference standings, so this is the Clippers' chance to prove they are an elite squad.
Meanwhile, Toronto might be caught looking ahead to their Wednesday game at Golden State, which the Raptors hope will be a Finals preview. While the Raps overlook Los Angeles, look for the Clips to cover as home underdogs tonight.
Current Standings: Keefer, (19-17-2, $9,256), Brewer (11-12-1, $9,060), Emerson (0-1, $8,125), Grimala (11-11-1, $5,205)
