Friday NBA Prop Picks: Fats likes RJ Barrett, Kelly Olynyk, Will Barton, Kevin Porter Jr, Wizards vs Warriors
1-4 last night. For the second time this season I say, "Remind me to never bet on the Kings."
Four games, five plays.
All wagers and returns based on $10. Please check game time lineups before wagering.
Grizzlies at KNICKS 7:35 pm EDT, Spurs at NUGGETS 9:05 pm, Rockets at CLIPPERS 10:05 pm, Wizards at WARRIORS 10:05 pm.
3-pointers: WARRIORS - 4.5 Over Wizards and Under 239.5 +260 (returns $36.00) I think the Warriors will cover and with the Wizards in the middle of a cross-country road trip, I think they'll slow down the pace a little.
2-pointers: RJ Barrett (Knicks) Over 1.5 threes made +100 (returns $20.00) Barrett is 11-13 from deep over his last three, including 6-6 in his last game. That means he's probably due for a 2-8 night, but as long as he nets the two . . .
Free Throws: None
Steals: Will Barton (Nuggets) Over 14.5 points -113 (Returns $18.90) Barton shot the ball poorly in Wednesday's matchup between these teams. It's unlikely to happen again.
Kelly Olynyk (Rockets) Over 22.5 points, rebounds, assists -125 (Returns $18.00) Olynyk has gone over this number his last three games and seems to have found his role in Houston.
Kevin Porter Jr. (Rockets) Over 24.5 points, rebounds, assists -113 (Returns $18.90) Wanted to make this play the other night, then John Wall ended up playing. Reports say Wall is out tonight so I'm going back to KPJ.
Free Throws: MAVERICKS -2 Over Bucks -112 (Returns $19.00) Mavericks win 116-101.
3-pointers: Cavaliers Over THUNDER and Under 218.5 +200 (returns $30.00) The Cavs crushed the Thunder 129-102. Thought I had no chance after a 76-point first quarter – where the hell did that offensive explosion come from? Then thought I was back in it after a 42-point 3rd quarter. Nope.
2-pointers: Luka Doncic (Mavericks) double-double +115 (returns $21.50) Oh, Luka, you rip my heart out, finishing 27-9-9.
Saddiq Bey (Pistons) Over 13.5 points +100 (returns $20.00) Bey went for 12 points.
Free Throws: KINGS -7.5 Over Pistons -110 (Returns $19.10) The Kings may be the most frustrating team in the NBA – although they do have plenty of competition. Last night they lost at home to the Pistons 113-101 and were never in danger of winning.
$50 wagered (1-4), $19.00 returned.
