NBA Sunday: After 5-0 Saturday Fats picks props for LaMelo Ball, Derrick Rose, Saddiq Bey and the Kings
5-0 last night. Yes, you read that right. (And on Twitter I threw in a game time Knicks pick which also won.) If your kid can now afford college the only thanks I need is that he/she/they works hard and graduates.
Four games, four picks. Not pushing it tonight after going 5-0. Yes, you read that right.
All wagers and returns based on $10. Please check game time lineups before wagering.
Knicks at PISTONS 8:05 pm EST, Hornets at KINGS 10:05 pm
3-pointers: KINGS -3 Over Hornets and Over 236 +255 (returns $35.50) This could be tonight's sucker bet. The Hornets are likely without Gordon Hayward, Cody Zeller and Devonte Graham and are in the 4th game of a West Coast swing. The Kings finally won a game and are home after a looooong trip. The Kings push tempo, the Hornets only have 9 players and they'll be guarding multiple positions. Don't mock me if the Hornets win 84 -82.
2-pointers: LaMelo Ball (Hornets) double-double +135 (returns $23.50) With only 9 players, someone is going to have to score, rebound and pass. Ball does all three.
Derrick Rose (Knicks) Over 5.5 assists +110 (returns $21.00) On one hand, Rose is going to want to play well against his former team. On the other, he played 37 minutes last night, then had to fly from New York to Detroit. The Knicks may have no legs so Rose's passes may go for nought, but over the past three games he's averaged over 8 assists and not been below 6.
Free throws: Saddiq Bey (Pistons) Over 19.5 points, rebounds, assists -110 (returns $19.10) Bey has been beating this number recently and should have live legs against a Knicks team that battled last night.
2-pointers: Michael Carter-Williams (Magic) Over 4.5 assists +135 (returns $23.50) MCW has had 7 assists.
Bruce Brown (Nets) Over 20.5 points, rebounds, assists +100 (returns $20.00) Brown went 12-9-3 for a 24 PRA.
Free throws: Nerlens Noel (Knicks) Over 15.5 points, rebounds, assists -110 (returns $19.10) Noel went 8-7-1 to squeak by with 16.
Mavericks vs NETS Under 233 -109 (returns $19.20) The Nets scored 38 in the 2nd quarter and 34 in the second half to make this a lock. Mavs win 115-9 - 213.
WIZARDS -4 Over Timberwolves -112 (returns $19.00) Wizards won 128-112.
