Fats Baller's Friday NBA prop picks include Mitchell Robinson, Caris Levert, Devin Booker and Jerami Grant
Last night, Jamal Murray took my heart. And not in a Lifetime romance kind of way.
But NBA bettors are like baseball closers, we need to have short memories,
Tonight, I'm looking for the Knicks emerging big man Mitchell Robinson to do his Jarrett Allen imitation, Net Caris Levert to remember every possession that Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving aren't playing, Devin Booker to remember who he's playing and Jerami Grant to keep being a Piston bright spot.
Payoffs based on $10 wagers.
Suns at PISTONS, 7:05 pm, Thunder at KNICKS, 7:35 pm EST. Nets at GRIZZLIES, 8:05 pm.
3-pointer: Mitchell Robinson (Knicks) double-double +230 (returns $33.00)
2-pointer: Caris Levert (Nets) over 22.5 points -110 (returns $19.10)
Free throw: Devis Booker (Suns) over 34.5 points, rebounds, assists -117 (returns $18.60)
Steal: Jerami Grant (Pistons) over 26.5 points, rebounds, assists -134 (returns $17.50)
Free throw: Jarrett Allen (Nets) double-double +141 (returns $24.10) The Fro played like a man again with 15 points and 11 boards in 28 minutes.
3-pointer: Damian Lillard (Trail Blazers) double-double +350 (returns $45.00) Dame was on his way to a double-double with 39 points, 7 boards and 7 assists, but with the Blazers up 31, he sat out the 4th quarter.
2-pointer: Nikola Jokic (Nuggets) triple-double +180 (returns $28.00) For the second time Jokic told me not to bet on a triple-double. This time I will listen.
Steal: Jamal Murray (Nuggets) Over 21.5 points -105 (returns $19.60) This was a heartbreaker. Murray had 13 points after one quarter and 21 at the end of four quarters when Jokic hit a long two to send the game to OT. Even with 5 more minutes to get a stinking point, Murray disap-point-ed.
$40 wagered (1-3), $24.10 returned.
Day 15: -$15.90
Total: -$150.65 (27-42 off 69 $10 wagers)
