Wednesday NBA Picks: Fats likes John Collins, Mike Conley, Pacers vs Pistons, Suns vs Magic, Jazz vs Nets
2-2 last night for a small profit. Let me just say that James Harden and four concessions workers could probably compete in an NBA game. That the Nets won last night is ridiculous.
Four games, Five picks.
All wagers and returns based on $10. Please check game time lineups before wagering.
Pistons at PACERS 7:05 pm EDT, Suns at MAGIC 8:05 pm, Nets at JAZZ 10:05 pm Hawks at KINGS 10:05 pm.
3-pointers: MAGIC +9.5 Over Suns and Under 216 +255 (returns $35.50) Both teams played last night – the Magic at home (a loss to Denver), the Suns in Miami (a win over the Heat). This is just a feeling. And you know what they say about feelings: They pass.
John Collins (Hawks) double-double +275 (returns $37.50) Collins has doubled things up in three of his last five games and tonight gets a Kings team without Marvin Bagley – playing three guards.
2-pointers: JAZZ Over Nets And Under 231 +125 (returns $22.50). I am nothing, if not stubborn. James Harden and the Nets brought it last night in Portland, but tonight they're still undermanned, playing a back-to-back in another city and against a better, rested team.
Mike Conley (Jazz) Over 5.5 assists +102 (returns $20.20) Conley averages 5.5 assists and is playing tonight in a game that should have pace against a tired team. With + odds, that's a play.
Free throws: PACERS -6 Over Pistons -110 (returns $19.10) The Pacers are coming off a drubbing to the Bucks after sweeping the heat. With Caris Levert back, they need to start winning games if they're going to make the playoffs.
2-pointers: Brandon Ingram (Pelicans) Over 24.5 AND PELICANS Win +165 (returns $26.50). The Pels won 128-111 and Ingram scored 36 points.
Steals: Julius Randle (Knicks) Over 42.5 points, rebounds, assists -118 (returns $18.50) Randle went off with a 37-6-2 line and shot 7-10 from three. Knicks won 131-113.
3-pointers: TRAIL BLAZERS -3.5 Over Nets and Under 233 +255 (returns $35.50) The Nets beat the Blazers 116-112.
2-pointers: HEAT moneyline win Over Suns +110 (returns $21.00) The Suns beat the Heat 110-100.
