Sunday NBA Playoff Props: Fats picks Khris Middleton, Brook Lopez, John Collins, curious which teams show up
2-1 last night, as Ivica Zubac and Paul George netted double-doubles.
Sunday Playoff Picks
One game, 3 plays. I'm willing to bet the Hawks play better than they did on Friday. If the same Bucks team shows up, it may not matter.
All wagers and returns based on $10. Please check game time lineups before wagering.
Bucks at HAWKS, 8:35 pm EDT.
3-pointers: Khris Middleton (Bucks) double-double +350 (returns $45.00) This number seems too high, which makes me a little nervous. Middleton has had double-figure points in all but two games all season, so half the wager appears safe. He's had double-figure rebounds in five of the last 10 playoff games and three of the past 6 road playoff games and would have had the number last game, most likely, if he played the fourth quarter. Since I expect tonight's game to be closer, getting 3.5 to 1 on something with a 50% chance of occurring, strikes me as a solid wager.
2-pointers: Brook Lopez (Bucks) Over 1.5 made threes +155 (returns $25.50) Even with the Bucks choosing to go small, Lopez is getting 20+ minutes/game and knocked down three threes in the last. In the last three road playoff games he's gone 2+ made threes.
John Collins (Hawks) Over 9.5 rebounds +100 (returns $20.00) Collins has had 10+ rebounds in six of the last 10 games and is averaging 11.5 in the two games against the Bucks.
Free throws: None
2-pointers: Ivica Zubac (Clippers) double-double +125 (returns $22.50) Zubac had 13 points and 14 rebounds in defeat.
Paul George (Clippers) double-double +110 (returns $21.00) George had 23 points and 16 rebounds in defeat.
3-pointers: Chris Paul (Suns) double-double AND Suns Win +230 (returns $33.00) Although the Suns won, Paul finished 18-4-7 and seemed more concerned about winning the game than me winning my wager. That's the problem with these NBA guys – always thinking about themselves.
