Thursday NBA Prop Picks: Fats Baller likes the odds on Damian Lillard, Nikola Jokic, Jarrett Allen, Jamal Murray
Fats split last night, kind of like the country, but for once the wins were easy. The Bucks were clearly going to win and top the over by the end of the first half, De'Andre Hunter had his number by the end of three and became a two-time Fats winner. Wish Eric Bledsoe had done the same since he didn't play the fourth. Steph Curry left me hanging by one assist. Just because you're the best shooter Steph, doesn't mean you shouldn't pass the ball.
So tonight, I'm counting on Nikola Jokic to get that triple-double, Damian Lillard to go off (in two categories), Jamal Murray to rebound from last game's low-scoring effort, and Jarrett Allen to continue his dominant play.
Payoffs based on $10 wagers.
