Sunday NBA Bets: Fats picks Kyrie Irving, Jusuf Nurkic, Raul Neto, Wizards vs Cavs, and Grizzlies vs Blazers
Decent night last night: Only went 2-3, but all the games went as I thought they would – one was a BAD beat – and I turned another profit.
Three games, five plays. A lot is going to depend on who shows up to play.
All wagers and returns based on $10. Please check game time lineups before wagering.
Suns at NETS 3:35 pm, Grizzlies at TRAIL BAZERS 4:05 pm EDT, Cavaliers at WIZARDS 7:05 pm EDT.
3-pointers: Kyrie Irving (Nets) double-double +310 (Returns $41.00) With James Harden out, Kyrie has been close to a double-double every game and made it in the last two. I think with KD back and going against Chris Paul, he's going to bring it.
2-pointers: WIZARDS Over Cavaliers and Under 227 +155 (Returns $25.50) The Wizards play at the top pace in the league but the Cavs don't and don't play that many games over 227. With the Wizards crazily in the playoff hunt, I think they'll be more focused on winning than running.
Jusuf Nurkic (Trail Blazers) double-double +110 (Returns $21.10) Nurkic went for 26 and 17 against the Grizzlies on Friday and missed the game winner, so he should return today with a little fire in his belly.
Free Throws: None
Steals: Raul Neto (Wizards) Over 17.5 points, rebounds, assists -113 (Returns $18.90) Neto is coming off solid back-to-back games in which he's put numbers in the three key columns. 17.5 seems very doable for the starter.
Grizzlies vs TRAIL BLAZERS Under 235.5 -113 (Returns $18.90) It's a 1 o'clock start on the West Coast, so I have to take the Under on principle.
3-pointers: Mason Plumlee (Pistons) double-double +425 (Returns $52.50) Yesterday: "With Sabonis and Turner out, if ever there was a game for Plumlee to rack up numbers, this is it." Today: Plumlee went 17-21-5. I'd say that qualifies. Pistons still lost, 115-109.
2-pointers: BUCKS Over Sixers and Under 228.5 +143 (Returns $24.30) I feared yesterday the Bucks might score 130 and I'd lose, but they scored 132 an I snuck in with the W: 132-94 = 226.
3-pointers: Malcolm Brogdon (Pacers) double-double +365 (Returns $46.50) Brogdon had a big game in the pacers 115-109 win, just nogt quite big enough.. going 26-8-4.
Free Throws: NUGGETS -14 Over Rockets -107 (Returns $19.40) Nuggets up 129-105 with less than 2 minutes to play. Rockets score final 11 and hit 2 threes in the final 39 seconds to lose by 13.
Steals: Jrue Holiday (Bucks) Over 27.5 points, rebounds, assists -113 (Returns $18.90) Holiday went 12-3-5 in only 27 minutes of the Buck blowout.
$50 wagered (2-3), $76.80 returned.
