Friday NBA Playoff Props: Fats picks Jrue Holiday, Trae Young and the unappreciated Hawks getting points
2-2 last night, broke even. Not the goal, but better than losing.
Friday Playoff Picks
One game, 3 plays. Light night tonight because I can't figure the Bucks out. Even when i can figure the teams out I don't always win, but at least I think I'll win.
All wagers and returns based on $10. Please check game time lineups before wagering.
Hawks at BUCKS, 8:35 pm EDT.
3-pointers: Jrue Holiday (Bucks) double-double +210 (returns $31.00) Holiday had a big first game and the Bucks are going to need to have a big second game – and defend Trae Young. It's a lot to ask, but that's why they signed him.
Free throws: Trae Young (Hawks) Over 44.5 points, rebounds, assists -105 (returns $19.60) Tonight's sucker bet? Young scored 48 points in the first game and finished with a PRA of 66 – and shot only 4-13 from three. He's also gone over 44.5 in four of the last 5 games.
Hawks +8.5 Over BUCKS -110 (returns $19.10) I won this easily the other night at +102. Tonight's odds are a little worse, but I'm getting an extra point. Sure, it's possible the Bucks are going to blow the Hawks out but the Bucks haven't played well and the Hawks have to be supremely confident against a team that has had trouble closing out games – even the games they've won.
2-pointers: Jae Crowder (Suns) Over 2.5 made threes +125 (returns $22.50). Crowder went 3-6 from three before fouling out.
Steals: Reggie Jackson (Clippers) to score more points than Chris Paul (Suns) -134 (returns $17.50) Jackson outscored Paul 23-15.
2-pointers: Devin Booker (Suns) to score more points than Paul George (Clippers) +120 (returns $22.00) George outscored Booker 27-15.
Chris Paul (Suns) Under 8.5 assists +110 (returns $21.00) When Paul had three assists on what seemed like the Suns' first three possessions, I knew this was a loser.
