Fats Tuesday NBA Prop Picks: Saddiq Bey, James Harden, RJ Barrett, the weary Wizards, and two parlays
1-3 last night but the winner was +300 so the wallet broke even.
Six games, Six picks with two parlays.
All wagers and returns based on $10. Please check game time lineups before wagering.
Pistons at MAGIC 7:05 pm EST, Sixers at RAPTORS 7:35 pm, Celtics at MAVERICKS 7:35 pm, Warriors at KNICKS 7:35 pm, Kings at NETS 7:35 pm, Wizards at CLIPPERS 10:05 pm
3-pointers: James Harden (Nets) triple-double +340 (returns $44.00) With no Durant and maybe no Jeff Green or TLC, Harden will have to rebound and score. Assists will depend on guys he's passing to making shots.
Sixers ML win over Raptors AND Celtics ML over Mavericks PARLAY +226 (returns $31.57) Why? If the Sixers see themselves as serious contenders they can't lose back-to-back to the Raptors and the Celtics have got to turn it around eventually.
Free throws: Nets win over Kings and game is under 242 +170 (returns $27.00) With fans in the Barclays Center for the first time - granted it's only a few hundred – I think the Nets will be ready to play against the Kings, who are badly missing Harrison Barnes and Richaun Holmes.
Steals: RJ Barrett (Knicks) Over 24.5 points, rebounds, assists -115 (returns $18.70) Barrett has been scoring the last three games and played very well against the Warriors when they met earlier this season.
Saddiq Bey (Pistons) Over 18.5 points, rebounds, assists -118 (returns $18.50) Bey has been playing well with more minutes. When theses team played two nights ago he went 11-8-1. A smart Villanova player like Bey should be able to figure a few more things out in the rematch, but 11-8-1 will get it done.
Wizards at Clippers Under 233.5 -113 (returns $18.90) The Wizards have won 5 straight but are coming off an OT win at the Lakers last night in which Beal and Westbrook both played over 44 minutes. The Wizards don't have a ton of depth and I have to think they're not going to run themselves into the ground now that they've started playing well. If you accept the line at +/-12, I can see the game ending something like 121-109.
3-pointers: Wendell Carter Jr. (Bulls) double-double +300 (returns $40.00) Carter made his double-double in the first half and finished with 18 points and 13 boards.
3-pointers: Blazers at Suns over 227 -112 AND Grizzlies at Mavericks over 232 -113 Parlay at +259 (returns $35.91) The first game ended up with 232 and the second game ended up with a piddling 194. The Grizzlies couldn't score. Against the Mavericks.
Ja Morant (Grizzlies) double-double +250 (returns $35.00) Morant just missed with 22 points and 9 assists.
2-pointers: Chris Paul (Suns) double-double +195 (returns $29.50) Paul went 1-9 from the floor and ended with 2 points and 9 assists and the Suns still won by 32. Had I gone with Deandre Ayton at -125, I still would have lost.
$40 wagered (1-3), $40.00 returned.
