WE look to keep things rolling this week with some more NBA winners for members.
Here’s our best bets for the action ahead:
Oklahoma City Thunder @ Brooklyn Nets
The Thunder head to Brooklyn as part of their East Coast road trip and we’ve circled an interesting player prop to tackle.
Steven Adams’ points & rebounds total is far too high considering his contributions on the road and against Eastern Conference teams.
Adams is averaging 14.9 points and 10.1 rebounds on the season (26.0 combined) but he’s only cleared the 26.5 p+r total once in his last five starts. In fact, he’s only cleared this total once in his seven games against Eastern Conference teams this season.
The 7ft Kiwi is projected to finish with 12.2 points and 11.6 rebounds according to our data (23.8 combined), giving us terrific value on the Unders at this number.
Tip: Steven Adams u/26.5 points & rebounds @ $1.87 (Ladbrokes)
Philadelphia 76ers @ Toronto Raptors
Write up to come . . .
Tip: Ben Simmons u/16.5 points @ $1.75 (UBet) (2 units)
LA Clippers @ Memphis Grizzlies
The Grizzlies welcome LA in what should be a tense battle between two unlikely leaders out West.
Memphis have been dominant at home this season and the points total for them is very attractive today given how poorly the Clippers defence on the road.
In their last five games, Memphis has averaged 109.0 points per game while averaging 48% shooting from the field. They’ll now face a Clippers team that gives up 116.5 points per game on the road this season and has held just two of their 13 opponents on the road Under this number.
A lot of that is down to the easy transition point that the Clippers give up at the moment. So far this season, they’re allowing teams to have 94.4 field goal attempts per game – almost seven extra shot attempts per game than the league average.
In their last five meetings in Memphis, the home side has managed to clear this total on four occasions with an average score of 108.4 points. The lone Unders was when they finished on 105 points.
Our projections show them scoring 108.9 points giving us a big edge on this total and huge value with this price.
Tip: Memphis Grizzlies o/105.5 points @ $1.87 (Sportsbet) (2 units)
