In NBA Sunday, Fats picks props on Kawhi Leonard, Richaun Holmes, Buddy Hield, Jayson Tatum, and Devin Booker
Celtics at SUNS tip off at 2:05 pm EST, Kings at CLIPPERS at 3:05 pm EST
Went 2-2 last night but since one of the wins was a Sixers over Nets parlay, turned a 33% profit. But, man, I sweated out those final few minutes - "Stop scoring, dammit!"
I should take today off since all the games are in the afternoon and I hate NBA afternoon games because you never know who's going to be sleepwalking, out of rhythm, etc. But I need to have something to pay attention to besides the 8-hour Super Bowl pre-game show.
With no Jaylen Brown and no Marcus Smart, I hope Jayson Tatum had his Wheaties this morning because the Celtics and Fats are going to need him to come up big.
Devin Booker has let me down this year, but with no Smart and Brown to pester him,Over 31.5 PRS seems doable since he could make that number just on points.
He played a nice team game, but Buddy Hield scored only 5 yesterday in the Kings' win over the Nuggets. I think he picks up some points today as the Clippers concentrate on stopping De'Aaron Fox and Harrison Barnes.
And in the no-guts, no-glory department, I'm going to pick Richaun Holmes and/or Kawhi Leonard double-double. Each did it in his last game. Holmes has done it four times this season. Kawhi needs to do more with Paul George out. If the game stays close and both men play the fourth quarter, I think I'll have something to pull for around 5 o'clock and not have to switch over to Doritos commercials.
