Thursday NBA Picks: Fats likes Luka Doncic, Saddiq Bey, Cavs vs Thunder, Bucks vs Mavericks, Pistons vs Kings

Cavaliers at THUNDER 8:05 pm EDT, Bucks at MAVERICKS 9:05 pm, Pistons at KINGS 10:05 pm.

2-2 last night with one cancellation as John Wall played for the Rockets. Guessing who's going to be in an NBA game is a job for Miss Chleo.

Thursday picks

Three games, five plays.

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

Cavaliers at THUNDER 8:05 pm EDT, Bucks at MAVERICKS 9:05 pm, Pistons at KINGS 10:05 pm.

3-pointers: Cavaliers Over THUNDER and Under 218.5 +200 (returns $30.00) The teams average 209 combined and both have lost four of their last five. The Cavs, however, are coming off a win over the Spurs.

2-pointers: Luka Doncic (Mavericks) double-double +115 (returns $21.50) Doncic hasn't had a double-double since he had a triple-double against the Clippers on March 15. But in the 10 games since, he's come within one R or A 4 times, and within two, 3 more times.

Saddiq Bey (Pistons) Over 13.5 points +100 (returns $20.00) With Jerami Grant out, someone will have to shoot the ball for the Pistons. Bey better score, because he's stopped getting assists and rebounds.

Free Throws: KINGS -7.5 Over Pistons -110 (Returns $19.10) The Kings are in another funk but tonight return home to face a Pistons team without leading scorer Jerami Grant.

MAVERICKS -2 Over Bucks -112 (Returns $19.00) The Bucks are without Giannis and the Mavs, after finally getting their act together, are coming off a total stinker against the Rockets. I think they rebound.

Steals: None

Wednesday Results

Winners:

Free Throws: Kelly Olynyk (Rockets) Over 21.5 points, rebounds, assists -106 (returns $19.50) Olynyk went for 10-18-3 = 31 PRA and the Rockets beat the Mavs 102-93.

Hornets vs THUNDER Over 213 -112 (Returns $19.00) The Hornets won 113-102 just getting over the number.

Losers:

3-pointers: Jakob Poeltl (Spurs) double-double +285 (returns $38.50) Poeltl was a non-factor, going 4-5-5 in 27 minutes.

2-pointers: NUGGETS Over Spurs and Over 222.5 +145 (returns $24.50) The Nuggets did beat the Spurs, but only 106-96 = 202, not even close to the Over.

Canceled:

Free Throws: Kevin Porter Jr. (Rockets) Over 23.5 points, rebounds, assists -108 (returns $19.30) When John Wall doesn't play, Porter puts up good numbers. Well, Wall played, even though when I made the pick in the afternoon, he was, at best, questionable. Although Porter had an okay game going for 14-4-3, he took only 9 shots. Wall took 23 en route to a 31-3-7 = 45 PRA.


$40 wagered (2-2), $38.50 returned.

Day 92: -$1.50

Total: +113.25 (196-232 off 428 $10 wagers)
