Monday NBA Picks: Fats likes Ricky Rubio & Anthony Edwards props, T-Wolves vs Thunder, Kings vs Cavs parlays

Kings at CAVALIERS 7:35 pm, Thunder at TIMBERWOLVES 8:05 pm.

So . . . LeBron is out, LaMelo may be done for the year, Aaron Gordon wants to be traded (personally, I wanted to trade him yesterday), and I was on the verge of a historically bad night, losing my first five picks, before Chris Paul and the Suns saved me, Still took a loss, but it wasn't an 0-for-8 loss.

Monday picks

Two games, Four picks.

I'm going in on the T-Wolves tonight breaking the rule of the old horse racing adage by the late Al Bader. "Never bet on the nags, because they never run true to form." I don't want to call any NBA players nags but many teams are lacking when it comes to consistent performance. This just seems like a set-up for the fresh Wolves tonight to play well against a a Thunder squad that's been rolling all around the country.

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

Kings at CAVALIERS 7:35 pm, Thunder at TIMBERWOLVES 8:05 pm.

3-pointers: TIMBERWOLVES -3 Over Thunder and Under 227 +260 (returns $36.00) The logic here is so overwhelming it's scary. The Wolves have been off for three days. The Thunder are on the fourth game of a road trip and won a tight game last night in Houston.The teams average only 216 per game. The Wolves beat Phoenix on the road and last week beat the Trail Blazers, so they have the W in them. This is a good spot for them.

Ricky Rubio (T-Wolves) double-double +170 (returns $27.00). Rubio has double-doubles in two of his last three games. Let's make it three of four, shall we.

2-pointers: Kings win Over CAVALIERS and Over 224 +190 (returns $29.00) The Kings have been on the road a long time but this is the end of the trip.I think they'll have enough energy to enjoy the long flight home.

Free throws: None

Steals: Anthony Edwards (T-Wolves) Over 2.5 threes made -130 (returns $17.70) Edwards has hit three or more 3s in five straight games. It may take him 15 shots to get the three makes but he'll keep shooting.

Sunday Results

Winners:

3-pointers: Chris Paul (Suns) double-double +200 (returns $30.00). Paul went for the triple-double with 11-10-13.

2-pointers: SUNS win Over Lakers and Under 215 +125 (returns $22.50) Suns win 111-94 = 205.

Steals: Maxi Kleber (Mavericks) Over 15.5 points, rebounds, assists -113 (returns $18.90) The Mavs scored 132 points but Kleber went for only 8-7-1, but that still beats 15.5.


Losers:

3-pointers: Bulls -3 Over PISTONS and Over 217.5 +255 (returns $35.50) Bulls easily win 100-86, which is unfortunately nowhere near 217.5.

Steals: Magic Over 103.5 points vs CELTICS -122 (returns $18.20) Magic score 31 in the first and end up with 96. That's not that easy to do in an NBA game.

Aaron Gordon (Magic) Over 26.5 points, rebounds, assists -113 (returns $18.90) Gordon goes 12-6-5 = 23.
