NBA Thursday: Fats Baller's prop bets look to Damian Lillard, Pascal Siakam, Domantas Sabonis, Draymond Green
I hate it when I'm out of a bet before a game is out of the first quarter because it makes watching the NBA so much less interesting. On the other hand, I hate losing a +200 double-double by one rebound. Last night's $20 loss was 1 board away from a $10 net and 3 boards away from a $30.50 net. Goodness knows there are enough missed shots to go around. Oh, well. If it were easy, the people who went to the casinos would be rich and the people who owned the casinos wouldn't be.
Tonight I'm returning to three players who've either won me money or were close to winning me money, feel bad about their performances, and want to do better tonight. I'm adding in Draymond Green, who's looking close to being Draymond Green again. His double-double line at +275 isn't so high that he shouldn't be able to scrap by a 20 PRA. I'm not picking it officially, but the Rockets on the moneyline (+210) may be worth a wager. You never know how a person will respond once a cloud has been lifted, but John Wall, Christian Wood, Eric Gordon and DeMarcus Cousins could just do a happy dance to a W.
All wagers and returns based on $10.
