Thursday NBA Prop Picks: Fats likes LaMelo Ball, CJ McCollum, Joe Ingles, and the Hawks vs Thunder

Jazz at WIZARDS 7:05 pm EST, Thunder at HAWKS 7:35 pm, Pelicans at TRAIL BLAZERS 10:05 pm, Hornets @ LAKERS 10:35 pm.

2-2 for tiny win, which is always better than a loss.

Thursday picks

Four games, four picks.

Y'all know I love to bet Knick games, but not tonight: The Magic have lost 9 in a row and the Knicks are playing without their top four point guards. Come on down, Frank Ntilikina, now's your chance to shine. The coach almost can't take you out.

All wagers and returns based on $10. Please check game time lineups before wagering.

Jazz at WIZARDS 7:05 pm EST, Thunder at HAWKS 7:35 pm, Pelicans at TRAIL BLAZERS 10:05 pm, Hornets @ LAKERS 10:35 pm.

3-pointers: LaMelo Ball (Hornets) double-double +535 (returns $63.50) LaMelo returns home to face the Lakers. If he plays out of his mind, this could pay off nicely, but it's +535 for a reason.

2-pointers: Hawks Over THUNDER and Under 225.5 +160 (returns $26.00) The Thunder beat the Hawks in OKC at the end of February when the Hawks were going through a rough patch. They've been on a roll lately, under new Coach Nate McMillan and expect them to turn the tables. On most of my recent game parlays, I've had the correct winner and the wrong over/under. You're forewarned.

Free throws: CJ McCollum (Trail Blazers) Over 25.5 points, rebounds, assists -110 (returns $19.10) McCollum had a game to shake off the rust, but Damian Lillard is unlikely to score 50 again, so CJ needs to take some of the pressure off.

Steals: Joe Ingles (Jazz) Over 22.5 points, rebounds, assists -117 (returns $18.60) This number just seems high. Ingles averages 11/3/4 and has only gone over 22.5, three times in the past 10 games. But in February, when Mike Conley was out, Ingles beat this number more than not. Conley is out tonight.

Wednesday Results

Winners:

2-pointers: Ben Simmons (Sixers) double-double +110 (returns $21.00) It took Simmons nearly 45 minutes of playing time to notch a double-double, and within 4 seconds of that he notched a triple-double. Sixers lost 107-105 in OT (without Joel Embiid) and Simmons went for 13-10-12.

Free throws: Kings at WIZARDS Under 247 -109 (returns $19.20) A) Kings win 121-119 = 240. It looked BAD after that 72 point 1st quarter, but the 45 point 4th quarter brought it under.

Losers:

3-pointers: Kevin Porter, Jr. (Rockets) double-double +230 (returns $33.00) Porter isn't helping the Rockets win – they've lost a franchise-record 18 straight – but 25-4-7 is not a bad 5th game for the rookie.

2-pointers: Warriors Over ROCKETS and Over 229.5 +114 (returns $21.40) Warriors win 108-94=202 – a 28 point miss. When the oddsmakers miss by that much what are you going to do?

Canceled:

$40 wagered (2-2), $40.20 returned.
