Thursday NBA Prop Bets: Fats picks Christian Wood, Kelly Olynyk, Isaiah Stewart
1-4 last night BUT the lone winner was a +375 Paul George double-double so the night was basically a wash. Other plays were close but not close enough.
Two games, three plays. I really wanted to start picking only double-doubles since those the bets I've been more consistently winning, but there just aren't enough options today. +140 for Draymond Green is too low given his aversion to scoring. +145 for Michael Porter Jr. is too low, given he's only been close to a double-double once in his last 7 games. Can't pick the Mavericks vs. Pistons because 3 starters are out for Detroit and all of Dallas's key players are questionable.
All wagers and returns based on $10. Please check game time lineups before wagering.
Mavericks at PISTONS 7:05 pm EDT, Bucks at ROCKETS 8:05 pm.
3-pointers: Kelly Olynyk (Rockets) double-double +210 (Returns $31.00) Olynyk has won 7 of 8 times for me but I've never taken him on the double-double. But . . . he's doubled things up in 4 out of his last 10 games, usually with rebounds but once with 11 assists – and in four more games had 8 or 9 boards. That means he should have a chance if the Rockets can stay close enough to keep him in the game.
2-pointers: Christian Wood (Rockets) double-double +100 (Returns $20.00) Wood averages a double-double and has been cleaning up on the boards the last two games.
Free throws: None
Steals: Isaiah Stewart (Pistons) Over 24.5 points, rebounds, assists -113 (Returns $18.90) With Mason Plumlee out, Stewart will get the minutes if he can stay out of foul trouble. He's going to get rebounds, the question is on the points and assists.
3-pointers: Paul George (Clippers) double-double +375 (Returns $47.50) The Clippers lost to the Suns, but George came up big for me late with 25 points and 10 rebounds.
3-pointers: Miles Bridges (Hornets) double-double +350 (Returns $45.00) Bridges went 19-4-4 in a Hornets loss to the Celtics, 120-111.
Anthony Davis (Laker) double-double +300 (Returns $40.00) Davis finished with 26 points, but only 5 boards.
2-pointers: KNICKS Over Bulls and Over 209 +195 (Returns $29.50) The Knicks pulled away from the Bulls in the 4th to win 113-94 = 207, but the total came up 3 points short.
SIXERS Over Hawks and Over 214.5 +132 (Returns $23.20) The Sixers massacred the Hawks 127-83 = 210, but the total cam up 5 points short. 83, Hawks? Really?
$50 wagered (1-4), $47.50 returned.
Day 113: -$2.50
Total: +117.05 (230-282 off 512 $10 wagers)
