It's Fats Tuesday: NBA picks for Jayson Tatum, Russell Westbrook, Elfrid Payton and the L.A. Clippers
Last night was oh so close to being a clean sweep, and I was in all the bets until the end. James Harden would have made his number if the game was closer. The worst is when you know you're out of it midway through the second quarter.
Tonight I look to build on last night and start going positive with picks in four different games:
Celtics at PACERS, 7:10 pm EST; Bulls at WIZARDS, 7:10 pm; Knicks at CAVALIERS, 7:10 pm; Timberwolves at CLIPPERS, 10 pm
3-pointer: Jayson Tatum (Celtics) double-double +205 (returns $30.20)
2-pointer: Russell Westbrook (Wizards) triple-double +175 (returns $27.50)
Free throw: Elfrid Payton (Knicks) Over 24.5 (points, rebounds, assists) -117 (returns $18.60)
Steal: Clippers win and Under 228 +123 (returns $22.30).
2-pointer: Jerami Grant (Pistons) Over 16.5 points +100 (returns $20.00). Grant easily beat the number, scoring 27.
Free throw: Hawks Over 117.5 points -109 (returns $19.20). The high-flying Hawks put up 128 on the roster-resting Pistons.
3-pointer: Mason Plumlee (Pistons) double-double +170 (returns $27.00). Plumlee needed one more freakin' point.
Steal: James Harden double-double -120 (returns $18.40). Harden finished two assists short of a double-double.
$40 wagered (2-2), $39.20 returned.
Day 5: -$. 80
Total: -$93.55 (10-18 off 28 $10 wagers)
