Thursday NBA Playoff Props: Fats Picks Jrue Holiday, CJ McCollum, Andre Drummond, Bobby Portis, Damian Lillard
4-3 yesterday, but the big winner was the +700 Mike Conley double-double. Wins like that pay for a lot of losses.
Thursday Playoff Picks
Three games, six plays.
All wagers and returns based on $10. Please check game time lineups before wagering.
Bucks at HEAT 7:35 pm EDT, Suns at LAKERS 10:05 pm, Nuggets at TRAIL BLAZERS 10:35 pm.
3-pointers: Jrue Holiday (Bucks) double-double And Bucks win +340 (returns $44.00) Holiday has done it four straight games. Let's make it five.
2-pointers: CJ McCollum (Trail Blazers) Over 22.5 points And Blazers win +152 (returns $25.20) I'm banking on McCollum having a good night at home.
Andre Drummond (Lakers) Over 20.5 points, rebounds, assists +110 (returns $21.00) The last time I thought I was getting a gift, the gift lost. But this sure looks like a gift given Drummond's performance over the last two weeks.
Bobby Portis (Bucks) Over 14.5 points, rebounds, assists +110 (returns $21.00) Over the last 10 games, Portis's PRA has been 16, 12, 18, 17, 26, 18. 25, 15, 9, 31. So more than double on something that recently has been happening 80 percent of the time. I'll take that every day.
Damian Lillard (Trail Blazers) Over 8.5 assists +100 (returns $20.00) In the last three games against Denver, Lillard has averaged 11 assists.
Free throws: LAKERS -6.5 Over Suns -110 (returns $19.10) If Chris Paul can't go at full-strength, the Suns's hard job is going to get even harder.
3-pointers: Mike Conley (Jazz) double-double And Jazz win +700 (returns $80.00) Conley got 11 assists in Game 1 and with Donovan Mitchell back that should be easier. He hasn't been below double-figures in points in a game since March 26.
Free throws: Grizzlies vs JAZZ Over 55.5 points in 3rd Quarter -106 (returns $19.50) The third was the Jazz's quarter all season.
Steals: Daniel Gafford (Wizards) Over 14.5 points, rebounds, assists -113 (returns $18.90) Gafford has been consistently beating his number and easily paid off for me in Game 1. I'm going back to the well.
SIXERS -8 Over Wizards -114 (returns $18.80) The Wizards gave the Sixers all they could handle in Game 1. I don't think tonight will be as close. But with Westbrook and Beal, it's possible.
2-pointers: Tobias Harris (Sixers) Over 21.5 points And Sixers win +125 (returns $22.50) Harris scored 19 and would have beaten this number easily if he played at all in the fourth quarter.
Derrick Rose (Knicks) Over 5.5 assists +118 (returns $21.80) Rose had only 4 assists, but his scoring was key to the Knicks win.
KNICKS -1 Over Hawks 1st Quarter +102 (returns $20.20). The Knicks did not come out hot. They finished hot.
