Fats Baller's Sunday NBA prop picks feature Kyle Lowry, Julius Randle, Christian Wood, John Wall, Jerami Grant
Since a 4-0 night on Fats Tuesday nearly two weeks ago, my results have been terrible. People keep asking me why I continue to flush money down the toilet. I have a few answers:
It's not that much money and I have good plumbing;
It gives me a reason to watch some hoops when there is nothing else on;
I don't want to let down my fan;
You can bet the opposite.
Last night I hope you learned another valuable lesson: While I have to file my picks early when Giannis is still scheduled to play, you don't have to place your bets until game time, when it is clear that he isn't. Goodbye over.
The Mavs over is on me. I knew three key guys were out and still thought the game would score more.
After letting me down twice, Devin Booker is off the grid for awhile.
Blessings, however, on De'Andre Hunter, one of the NBA's most consistent players.
Since you're all going to be watching football today, I'm giving 8 picks for the basketball fans to spread throughout their day. I would love some action on the Nets tonight, but at press time my book had no props for the Nets because who knows if Kyrie is playing. So here's what I got and check game time starters before you wager.
All wagers and returns based on $10.
