7 Monday NBA Props: Fats picks Blake Griffin, Kyrie, Khris Middleton, Jrue, Deandre Ayton, Devin, Monte Morris

Bucks at NETS 7:35 pm EDT, Nuggets at SUNS 10:05 pm.

4-4-1 yesterday, with a few late wins. It didn't go as I planned: Joel Embiid did play (and a lot) and De'Andre Hunter didn't, but I'll take the split and a fair profit.

Monday Playoff Picks

Two games, seven plays. I'm going heavy double-double in the first game as the odds are pretty good for guys doing what they've shown they can do. The outlier to me (and I didn't pick him) is Bruce Brown at +500. Brown has shown the ability to go double-double when James Harden is out and he's playing 30+ minutes, but not if Mike James is getting the bulk of the run. But they don't set these odds in a vacuum so maybe Brown is getting the big minutes tonight.

All wagers and returns based on $10. Please check game time lineups before wagering.

Bucks at NETS 7:35 pm EDT, Nuggets at SUNS 10:05 pm.

3-pointers: Blake Griffin (Nets) double-double +400 (returns $50.00) Griffin went for 18 and 14 in game 1 and while I don't expect him to hit four threes again, at +400 I'm willing to to take a shot at 10 and 10.

Kyrie Irving (Nets) double-double +350 (returns $45.00) Irving will have more ball-handling responsibilities with James Harden out, unless Mike James handles the dishing, Kyrie could get to 10 assists if KD and Joe Harris are hitting shots (he did it 6 times this season – and in four other games he got 11 boards).

Khris Middleton (Bucks) double-double +350 (returns $45.00) Middleton is the same odds as Kyrie, and he's gone double-double in the previous two games.

Jrue Holiday (Bucks) double-double +285 (returns $38.50) Holiday went double-double in 5 straight games and in the last two he missed by one board in one and one assist in the other.

2-pointers: Deandre Ayton (Suns) double-double And Suns win +171 (returns $27.10) Ayton went for double-doubles in all three games against Jokic and the Nuggets. Tonight, the Nuggets are playing with a different lineup, however (no Gary Harris, Jamal Murray, Will Barton) so I think the Suns may take the first game at home.

Devin Booker (Suns) Over 2.5 made threes +130 (returns $23.00) In Most games, Booker does not make 3+ threes. But I watched him hit EIGHT in the clincher against the Lakers and I can't not take +130 for over 2.5.

Monte Morris (Nuggets) Over 4.5 assists +130 (returns $23.00) Morris has been a stud off the bench in the playoffs, playing starter's minutes and getting others involved. In the Portland series, his assist number were 4, 5, 7, 5, 4, 5, 9.

Sunday Results


3-pointers: Clint Capela (Hawks) double-double And Hawks win +210 (returns $31.00) The Hawks won, Capela had 11 points and got his 10th rebound in the final two seconds of the game..

2-pointers: Reggie Jackson (Clippers) Over 14.5 points And Clippers win +150 (returns $25.00) I thought this was a sure L, but Jackson scored 8 points in the final 4:16 of the game to get to 15 – and the Clippers won by 15.

Luka Doncic (Mavericks) Over 3.5 made threes +140 (returns $24.00) Luka went 5-11 from three.

Steals: Mavericks at CLIPPERS Over 211 -112 (returns $19.00) Clippers won 126-111 = 237.


3-pointers: Ben Simmons (Sixers) triple-double +500 (returns $60.00) Simmons went for 17-4-10. He probably would have gotten more rebounds if Embiid didn't play.

Luka Doncic (Mavericks) Over 32.5 points And Mavericks win +400 (returns $50.00) Luka scored 46, but the Mavs didn't win.

2-pointers: Paul George (Clippers) Over 9.5 rebounds +112 (returns $22.50) George had 10 assists in this game and Kawhi had the 10 rebounds. George only had 6.

Free Throws: Tobias Harris (Sixers) Over 37.5 points, rebounds, assists -106 (returns $19.50) Harris went for 20-10-3 in defeat.


Free Throws: De'Andre Hunter (Hawks) Over 12.5 points -105 (returns $19.60) Hunter was a game-time scratch due to a knee injury.
