NBA Wednesday: Fats is betting on Ben Simmons to make a 3, more picks from Wizards vs Sixers, Knicks vs Pacers
Last night, I split my four bets and lost $8.80 (see below). The going may be rough in the early weeks as teams find their footing and new lineups adjust to each other. Shame my book doesn't have over/unders on turnovers. Tonight I'm concentrating on the Wizards vs. Sixers and Knicks vs. Pacers. Returns are based on $10 bets.
Wizards at SIXERS, 7:05 pm EST, Knicks at PACERS, 7:05 pm EST
3-pointer: Ben Simmons Over .5 three-pointers made +700 (Returns $80).
2-pointers: Victor Oladipo Over 24.5 (points, rebounds, assists) -110 (returns ($19.10)
Free throw: Knicks at PACERS Under 222.5 (alternate line) -235 (Returns $14.30)
Steal: Ben Simmons Over 32.5 (points, rebounds, assists) -110 (returns ($19.10)
Joe Harris (Nets) Over 17.5 (points, rebounds, assists) -110 (returns $19.10). Harris had 19.
Total Warriors vs Nets Points Under 247.5 (alternate line) -480 (returns $12.10). Total was 224. (The secondary wager of Over 216.5 -480 also paid off.)
Kevin Durant (Nets) Over 6.5 rebounds +110 (returns $21). Durant only had 5 boards in 24 minutes of action.
Lakers -3.5 AND Over 220.5 (+265) (returns $36.50). Got the over but the Lakers looked outmatched for much of the game.
$40 wagered, $31.20 returned
Day 1: -$8.80
