NBA Pick: Cavs -1.5
The Cavs this season have outplayed the wizards on offense and defense. The spread is low due to the Cavs playing a back to back, but that does not scare me. With Kuzma out and the wizards when they have a rest advantage against a NBA team they are 5-9 against the spread. Bradley Beal is also questionable in this game and is not 100 percent if he plays. Getting a spread this low for a team that is as good as the Cavs is a must for me. Getting the number 1 ranked defense versus a team that doesn’t have there second scoring option and struggles to defend throughout the game, is good value for me.
NBA Prop: Dwight Powell Over 13.5 PRAs
This season the jazz defense gives up the second most points to centers and 5th most rebounds per game. The mavericks have a lot of guys out and I like there trusty vet at a low total. Last game he recorder 10 points and 7 boards with everyone but Luka in for the mavericks. I like Powell to pick his spots on offense against this jazz team that can not guard centers and to control the boards both on offense and defense.
NBA Parlay: Clippers -3.5, Kings vs Rockets Under 241.5
Due to the trade saga the Brooklyn nets are without Kevin Durant and are in shambles. I like the true line at -7.5 with all of the clippers players healthy and the nets players questionable. When Kawhi Leonard and Paul George are on the court together they clippers are 14-8 Against the spread. The nets are banged up and have no true guy to lead them against these two stars.
As a away favorite this season unders are 7-4 for the kings and the rockets as home underdogs unders are 14-10. This total is super high for reasons like bad defense but I think with the kings giving up 134 points to a pelicans team without most starters will focus on being solid on defense and control the pace of the game.
