A 3-1 record on the last set of props has us looking to continue that trend. We were .5 points away from a perfect four for four, but Gordon Hayward did not lead us to promise land. However, we have the chance to go perfect tonight.
Tonight does not have the best slate, as we only have four games on the menu. However, that does not mean we should sit and let the opportunity pass us by. The bankroll will continue to expand tonight. There are some nice props tonight. Let's cook!!!!!
Zach LaVine Over 23.5 Points (-102)
The Chicago Bulls have been a mixed bag so far this season. There was a team meeting after the first game of the season. Teams around the league are even watching for who they can grab off the team once they officially call an end to this era. The biggest name in this mess is Zach LaVine.
LaVine has been around for a while now and was labeled as the franchise guy. Things have not gone how they wanted, but LaVine is still an All-Star talent, who can put up big scoring nights. We saw him put up 51 earlier this season, but the big nights are far and between.
LaVine has only hit his over twice in 10 games, while only scoring over 23 three times. The trend says to stay away, but the matchup screams to us.
The Milwaukee Bucks are just awful on defense this season. They are bottom five in defensive rating, made three-pointers allowed, and points allowed. Their defense is just not the same without Jrue Holiday, and it clearly shows. They have no one on their current roster who can stay with athletic wings or shifty guards.
LaVine fits the mold of a player that can give the Bucks fits tonight. The numbers might not be on our side, but I like the matchup a lot while thinking this can be a big get-right game for him.
Dennis Schroder Over 7.5 Assists (-118)
One thing that is apparent this season is that the Washington Wizards stink. Their defense is just putrid and all-time-level bad. They are giving up threes while giving up points in the paint. It is a free-for-all all when teams play them. The Wizards are in the bottom in almost all defensive categories, but the most important stat for tonight is their assists allowed per game. They are ranked dead last in assists allowed per game; one assist more than the second worst team.
The Toronto Raptors get the pleasure of playing them tonight, while they are on the second night of a back-to-back. The Raptors do maintain a rather slow pace and can get into iso ball from time to time, but the Wizards can easily speed them up with the open opportunities they allow.
Dennis Schroder started off a hot streak with hitting the over on his assists. Unfortunately, he has hit the under in his last three games. Schroder has been pretty good this season for the Raptors as their primary point guard. This matchup screams must play. It is hard to pinpoint who the scorer of the Raptors will be tonight, but all Schroder has to do is find the open man and they are going to score at will.
Julius Randle Over 9.5 Rebounds (-115)
Julius Randle has had his struggles so far. His shooting splits are abysmal. He is on pace to have one of the worst shooting seasons in NBA history. That is why we are completely ignoring his points props for the time being. We are going to make our way over to his rebounding prop, which has been printing money most of the time this season.
Randle is top five currently in rebounds per game, while only getting less than 10 rebounds twice this season. He hits the glass hard, as do the rest of the Knicks. The Knicks are first in rebounding percentage, thanks to a lot of that being from Randle himself. The Boston Celtics are a good rebounding team, as they are top two in rebounds per game, alongside the Knicks.
Randle, in his first matchup against the Celtics, finished with 11 rebounds. The Knicks and Celtics tend to have close encounters. If the game is indeed close, expect Randle to get his over on the glass.
