Fats Baller's Saturday NBA Bets: Jakob Poeltl plus Spurs vs Trail Blazers and Thunder vs Warriors parlays
i-4 Friday night as my slump continues.
Two games, three plays. Trying to stay in the black through the regular season and missing the playoffs.
All wagers and returns based on $10. Please check game time lineups before wagering.
Spurs vs TRAIL BLAZERS 10:05 pm, Thunder at WARRIORS 10:05 pm.
3-pointers: Jakob Poeltl (Spurs) double-double +400 (Returns $50.00) The positive is that Poeltl doubled it up last night against the Kings, but that's also the negative. Another positive is that Poeltl has played well on second nights of back-to-backs and a third positive is that neither of the Blazers centers are Rudy Gobert on the defensive end.
WARRIORS -14 Over Thunder and Over 225 +260 (Returns $36.00) The Warriors are desperate to win, the Thunder are desperate to lose. I'm hoping for something in the 125-105 range.
TRAIL BLAZERS -6 Over Spurs and Under 232.5 +260 (Returns $36.00) Both teams are on the second night of a back-to-back – the Spurs on the road, the the Blazers at home. The Blazers need to win to stay ahead of the Lakers and out of the play-in game. The Spurs are 2.5 over the injured Pelicans to retain the final play-in spot. The Blazers have a bit more depth for a Saturday night.
Free throws: None
Steals: Rockets at BUCKS Over 232.5 -113 (returns $18.90) Bucks win 141-133 = 274.
3-pointers: Jayson Tatum (Celtics) double-double +200 (Returns $30.00) Note to self: Add Celtics to list of teams to avoid. Tatum goes 9-6-3 in a 121-99 loss to the Bulls.
CJ McCollum (Trail Blazers) Over 22.5 points And Blazers win +125 (Returns $22.50) Blazers won 106-101, but McCollum scored only 21.
Free throws: SIXERS -8.5 Over Pelicans -108 (Returns $19.30). Sixers Barely beat the Pelican bench, 109-107.
Cavaliers at MAVERICKS Over 219.5 -108 (Returns $19.30). Mavs win 110-90 = 200.
2-pointers: Zion Williamson (Pelicans) double-double +185 (Returns $28.50) Minutes after I filed, I saw Zion was done for the season.
$50 wagered (1-4), $18.90 returned.
Day 121: -$21.10
Total: +28.15 (240-307 off 547 $10 wagers)
