NBA Picks, Predictions & Best Basketball Betting Odds [Thursday, March 16th]

Jay Money:

What’s up, what’s up everybody? Welcome to another show, NBA Show from BetUS TV guys. I’m your host Jay Money. We got our guy Josh with us. Well, we got our guy Chris Farley as well, guys, ready to get some cash. We’re here every single day, Monday through Friday. I hope you guys are enjoying the March Madness. We do have a March Mayhem contest, guys, if you’d like to enter in and get a chance to win a million dollars. Every $100 deposit to BetUS sportsbook will get you a entry over there, guys. Also have up to a $2,500 sign on bonus as well. Up to 125% as well, guys, so make sure you guys are checking it out. Josh, how you doing my brother? Is everything cool with you?

I can hear you just… I got you Josh, but what about you, Chris? Everything cool with you?

Chris Farley:

Everything’s good with me, guys. I had a pretty massive night last night, which was good after a bunch of even days before that. Unfortunately, I really can’t stand the slate today. Obviously happy to talk about it, I have a few leans. But in the past I’ve made plenty of mistakes about that. I like to talk about my mistakes on shows like this because we can all learn a lot from each other. If that instinct is in there, to play or to bet on anything, you might just want to let that day go, right? I’ve made that mistake too many times in the past. So you won’t see any players from me on this show, but I do have a few leans. Let’s get some wins for you guys, though.

Jay Money:

Exactly, and like I always say, sometimes the best bet is no bed as will, man. You’re guaranteed not to lose money, see what I’m saying, if you choose to stay off a game here today, guys.

But let’s go ahead and recap our best bet for the show for the season in this one, guys. Probably still under $500, but it’s all good. A total of 689 plays guys, 335 wins, 345 losses, with nine pushes. Hey, I always say it could be a lot worse than that one. So actually, with this crazy season, only 10 games under .500 with the amount of plays we’ve made is actually pretty good to be honest with you, man. But we always trying to get some cash, man, every single day, giving out our top plays on the card. We’re going to break down every game on the card today, guys. It’s only five games, so let’s go ahead and get straight to it in this one. Guys.

The first game up, we’re going to head over here to the streets of Detroit here guys, where we have the Detroit Pistons getting 14 and a half points at the house verse the Denver Nuggets in this one, land 14 and a half on the road. Man, if you’d like to go the money line route, the Nuggets laying minus 1200 on the money line on this one. You can get back plus 750 if you’d like to go with the underdog Detroit Pistons on this one guys. Over and under sitting at 228 and a half in this one. Obviously the Nuggets have lost four straight games in this one, guys. Chris, you think that the Nuggets can finally get over that speed bump in this one and finally get some wins here versus the lowly Detroit Pistons team?

Chris Farley:

Yeah, I mean, my goodness, you don’t want to be trending down at this point in the season, but that’s exactly what’s happening for the Denver Nuggets, really in unspeakable ways too, right? I mean, this is one of the most elite teams in the NBA really for quite a few months now, and they’re stumbling against much more inferior competition. Now, it’s in Detroit tonight, but look at who is out for the Pistons. I mean, you got a bunch of names out for the Pistons tonight. I know it’s in Detroit, but there’s no reason why the Denver Nuggets shouldn’t be able to step up. The Nuggets, on the other hand, it doesn’t look like there’s a lot of injuries on their side, Jamal Murray is probable. But this is a huge line, and there’s no way that I can take the nuggets at 14 and a half after what we’ve been seeing from them lately.

We’ve also been seeing a lot of these young teams, a lot of these teams that have a lot of players that are still working through their careers in the NBA really show out lately. For the Raptors… Not the Raptors, the Rockets, the Spurs, we’ve just seen it a lot. So, cautionary to bet on the Nuggets in any manner. Probably a Nuggets team total over, something like that works. But again, it’s a blowout, right? So the games could slow down later. So I don’t like anything on this game and I can’t trust Denver, although they’re probably, as the line indicates, the side to look at.

Jay Money:

Yeah, I’m right there with you, Chris. I could not trust laying 14, 15 points with the Nuggets here as well in their current form. This is a game maybe look towards some props on the Nuggets side. Should be a ton of easy baskets. Their team total is sitting at 120 and a half in this one, Josh. Do you think this is one of those type of games where Jokic chooses to stat pad in this one?

Yeah, no I’m right there with you on that, Josh. Yeah, this is a tough game. Don’t necessarily want to take the points with the Pistons because this one could get ugly, but when you’re talking about asking the Nuggets to win by 15 by margin, they’re just not in the current form in my opinion. So I’d look for maybe some props in this one, mainly on the Nuggets side, they should get some buckets, they should break out of their funk in this game, I just don’t want to ask them to win in a blowout fashion in this one, guys. So, tough game for me, tough game for all of us. We don’t have anything official on this game, guys.

Let’s head over here to the streets of Brooklyn in the Knicks game, guys. Here’s a tough slate, I’ll be honest, man, it’s a really tough slate. Man, hey, some funny stuff going on man. But let’s go over here to the streets of Brooklyn here, guys. We have the Brooklyn Nets here, laying two and a half points at the House verse the Sacramento Kings here getting two and a half points here on the road. Line makes you scratch your head here as well, guys. If you’d like to go the money line route, Sacramento Kings are getting back plus 120 here on the money line, or you could go with the home favorite here in the Brooklyn Nets, laying minus 140 on the money line in this one. Over and under sitting at 238 in this one, Chris. How you liking this one, my brother?

Chris Farley:

Yeah, if there’s any game that I was looking to bet on, it was going to be this one, because what a weird line, right? I mean, the Kings keep on proving that they’re not going away. I mean, the Kings have been fantastic really since the All-Star break. Effective field goal percentage, they don’t turn the ball over, obviously their offense has been through the roof, and their defense has been competent, right? I mean, this is a team that I expected to really flail in the final months of the season, and we’re not seeing that. But then we still have a Nets team that is just minus two and a half here at home, and the Nets aren’t obviously not one of the elite teams, still working on things right now, but I did like the Nets after the All-Star break as a betting companion, and that seems to be the case. They’re 6-1 against the spread in their last seven games. They’re getting more respect from the sports books, certainly.

Maybe this is a game where you go for an under, or maybe like a Sacramento Kings under. Tough spot for the Kings. It’s their fifth game in seven days, back-to-back, and the Brooklyn Nets are the number one defense in the NBA over the last six games, so over the last week or so. They just got a lot of good two-way players on that team. Again, B2B plus players. So maybe you look to play in the Nets in this one. I’m not going to touch it, because right now I’m not seeing that the Kings are sitting out many guys, but it is certainly lined as if that’s going to happen. So, can’t bet either side. Wanted to take a team total under on Sacramento, but it’s just a lean for me.

Jay Money:

Yeah, that’s a good point there. Yeah, definitely not the greatest spot for the Kings. The reason why I’m staying off this game because it’s a spot that I like to faith the home team as well. First game back at the house after a five game road trip. They’ve played 10 of their last 11 games on the road as well, the Brooklyn Nets have if I’m not mistaken. I know nine of last 10 for sure. So they’ve been traveling all over the place, first game back at the house. They do have somewhat rest advantage here, but when you only have one day of rest off that five game road trip, you can’t really practice, you’re just trying to relax. You see what I’m saying? So, that’s two conflicting spots in my opinion, Josh. Do you think that the Kings obviously sitting here as a underdog, it looks like they’re being disrespected once again. Do you think we should just maybe ride with the Kings in this one, just ride the hot streak here?

Josh:

Potentially. I mean, like you said, it’s a horrible spot for both teams. It’s not one that I want to be backing the Kings in a really, really tough spot, it’s not one where I want to be backing the Nets coming back home off of that West Coast trip specifically. So it’s an easy pass ultimately for me, my number basically exactly what the market says it is at the minute.

Normally I would lean towards an over between these two teams. I’ve spoken about Brooklyn’s offense lately. They try and push pace, they’re much better when playing in transition, not having to worry about set defenses. The Kings have obviously just been a dead nut overs team all season long. But this again has traditionally been that spot where these teams struggle offensively coming back home, and of course Sacramento, like I said, fifth game, seven nights, back-to-back, road back-to-back at that, on the East Coast. So yeah, everything for me screams to stay away from this one. If I had to pick anything, I’m probably just going to take the value on Sacramento here, and I probably would still lean the over, but like I said, just a game where there’s far too much going against any which way that I would want to get involved with, so an easy reason for me to stay away entirely.

Jay Money:

When there’s conflicting sides, I usually stay off the game every single time, especially when they’re doesn’t surprise me, whichever happens. We are seeing three starting to pop up on the board here, so not sure if there’s an injury that came out. But the Nets seem like they’re starting to take some money as we are doing this show right now, guys. So keep an eye on the injury report. You never know what could happen in today’s NBA, guys. I always say this might be the type of game that you want to bet at the last minute right before tip off. Could not talk you off doing that, guys.

Let’s go over here, we got three other games here, man. Let’s talk about them. Go over here to the streets of Toronto here, where we have the Toronto Raptors laying six and a half points at the house verse the Oklahoma City Thunder in this one getting back six and a half on the road. If you’d like to go the money line route, the Toronto Raptors home favorite are laying minus 250 on the money line here, or you can get back plus 205 if you’d like to go with the underdog in this one here on the road. Over and under sitting at 231 in this one, Chris, as well as the Thunder 6-1 straight up and against the spread last seven games. Do you think they keep it going here, my guy?

Chris Farley:

Yeah, another really tough one, because I don’t really want to bet against OKC here. They’re playing some pretty good basketball, and they’re showing that they’re not going to really go in tank mode. I mean, they’re showing a lot of effort a lot of these games, SGA, et cetera. Yeah, the Raptors are at home, they’re better at home, but this Raptors team still, I know they got off of that long road trip, didn’t perform really well on that road trip, so maybe that’s an excuse. But first game back at home, I had this at five and a half, so very tight for me.

But the Raptors are getting a little too much respect for me in this spot, because again, the Raptors don’t produce consistent offense. OKC doesn’t really produce a consistent defense either, but this is a spot where the Raptors should take care of business. They’re pretty healthy. But again, everything is really close in this game, and two pretty unpredictable teams. If anything, I would lean towards OKC because of what they’re showing us lately. Toronto just continues to be a team that I thought I was going to play on a lot this season, and I just keep on getting trigger shy because they don’t show me enough to trust them game-to-game.

So again, no play on this one. Maybe a Siakam prop, something like that. He had some down games on his road trip. This is usually where he surges against a team that can’t really contain him, and all the length that Toronto has in general. So maybe like a PAR prop for him or something like that. But that would be the only thing I would look at. Again, just a lean for me on this one.

Jay Money:

Yeah, that’s a good point there. The Raptors, they are definitely one of the most inconsistent teams in the league. Really hard to figure out. You never know when they’re going to show up, you never know when they’re going to throw out a dud as well, and sometimes they can have a good start to some games and just can’t really close them as well, man. So I’m not laying the points with the Raptors in this point spread range. Personally, I do think the Thunder’s wins have come against some bottom-tier teams and catching teams in the right spot, so they do head out on the road here for a standalone game before heading back to the house.

But like I said, I don’t want to take the points with the Thunder, I don’t want to lean them with the Raptors, but I do think the Raptors should win this game. Obviously if they’re trying to make the playoffs, they’re not going to get bumped out. You have to win these type of games, but Thunder also fighting for a play-in spot as well, Josh. How we looking at this one? Do you think The Thunder keep it going, 6-1 ATS last seven?

Josh:

Yeah, I mean, the Thunder are the best ATS team I think for a reason in the NBA. It seems the market doesn’t quite want to rate them as they should. This is still a far better team for me than what is showing up in the marketplace. Six and a half points is way too many for Toronto to be laying against a very, very competitive team. The Raptors have been pretty heavily priced, I think, since the All-Star break, but they’re not exactly showing us any reason why they should be. I still think that the Thunder offense can do more than enough against this Toronto defense to hang around long enough, and I still think that the Thunder defense can do enough to also get stops against a Raptors offense that is still pretty flawed in its own right, and can certainly have moments in games where they struggle to score with any sort of consistency there.

So for me, I’m more than happy to grab the points here. I have this probably closer to four, four and a half than I do six and a half. This line is basically suggesting that the Raptors would be about four points favorite on a neutral court. I don’t think that’s accurate at all. I think, like I said, the Thunder is still being a little bit disrespected in that regard. So for me, happy to grab the points in my pocket and live with whatever the outcome is here. I think that they match up well enough. I think they have enough pieces, like I said, to be scoring consistently against this defense, and they should be liable to steal this one as well on the road.

Jay Money:

Yeah, and SGA, if I’m not mistaken, is from Toronto, I know he’s Canadian for sure, so maybe looking at some SGA props in this one, going back home looking to show out in front of his friends and family in this one. Chris, you had something else on this one?

Chris Farley:

Yeah, just to support Josh with this one, it feels like the sportsbooks, the marketplace, this is still a perception from last season or something, right? I mean, you could really, by the metrics, these two teams are pretty even, and you’re getting points with OKC significantly. I know they’re on the road, but there’s not a lot separating these teams right now. So, the more we talk about this stronger lean to OKC and now you’re telling me SGA is from Canada, guys, I didn’t know that either. So maybe I’ll put this in my pocket tonight too. But I mean, absolutely. The Raptors are not a considerably better team, and a six and a half point line is what that suggests.

Jay Money:

Yeah, and it was at five and a half last night as well, so the Raptors actually taking money here. You might be able to get a seven with that one. So somebody out there has confidence pushing it up six and a half across the board here for the Raptors in that one. I was a bit surprised to see that one coming up from five and a half to six and a half. So our guy Josh rocking with the Thunderbirds in this one plus the six and a half could not talk you off the Thunder in this one, my guys.

Let’s head up here to the streets of Milwaukee here, man, the hottest team in the NBA right now, Milwaukee Bucks here, laying 13 points at the house verse the Indiana Pacers in this one, get back 13 on the road and this one. If you’d like to go the money line route for the Bucks here, they are laying minus 1,000 on the money line in this one. You could also get back plus 650 on the money line for the Pacers in this one. Total sitting at 238 in this one, my guys. Chris, the Bucks have been I believe what, 20-2, 21-2 straight up last 23 games? Absolutely smoking everybody that comes into their path. They do head back here off a little mini road trip. Only three games, though. But the Pacers have a ton of guys on the injury report and this one. They’ve seen been somewhat falling off a cliff in this one, Chris. Do you think that the Bucks keep the hot streak going here tonight at the house?

Chris Farley:

I think they probably do, but this line is massive. You can make a case that the Bucks are the best team in the NBA right now, but they also have some guys out, right? If this injury report is correct, and you know what? I shouldn’t trust ESPN ever, so let me just make a quick double take it. Yeah, so Brook Lopez is still questionable, right? Jae Crowder is questionable. They got a few guys on the questionable injury report status. So if Brook Lopez has out of this game tonight too especially, he’s been, in my opinion, a top 10 NBA player this year. I mean, he’s been unbelievable, just what he’s able to do on defense, on offense, one of the most accountable players for that team game-to-game. So he’s going to make a difference if he’s out.

We’ve seen it in the NBA this year, even though the Bucks, they’re the second best ATS team in the NBA, actually, but we’ve seen these teams that they got a lot of players on the injury report for the Pacers, so the home team, the team expected to win, doesn’t really put out full effort. I would actually lean to the Pacers, which is absolutely disgusting, and I’m not going to do it on this show, which is why I don’t have a play on it. But Bucks should take care of business here, especially if Giannis is playing. We’ll see if Brook Lopez is out there. But just not a lot to say on this, because this is probably a pretty predictable game, but 14 and a half, 13 and a half, that’s a lot of points, guys.

Jay Money:

Yes, definitely a lot of points. Bucks have been balling, though, I must say. They’ve been mowing teams down in this one, guys. But like I say, with a lot of injuries on both teams, could not talk you off waiting to see exactly who’s playing in this one with a few big names on the injury report as well in this one, Josh. How you looking at this game, my brother? Do you think the Bucks keep it rolling, or can the Pacers bounce back coming off that 20 point loss versus the Pistons?

Josh:

Yeah, I think the Pacers are done with the season. I think they’re trying to bottom out here. They have no interest in making that play-in tournament in the East, and for good reason. They’re not going to make the playoffs even if they make the play-in anyway. So for them, it looks like it’s just a case of let’s try and position ourselves to get the best lottery odds possible, and as a result, they’re a team that I don’t think should be backed at any point this season almost regardless of the number.

So yeah, this is a big number, it’s a lot to be asking of Milwaukee. It is a division game as well, so that’s spread even bigger than what it should probably normally be. But even with all of that taken into consideration, I have zero interest in looking at playing the Indiana Pacers in this spot.

So again, another game that’s just an easy pass for me. I’m probably at about 12 and a half here. But that said, I have no real case or argument to be made to be backing Indiana with real money here. So for me, let’s leave this one here. I think, like I said, there’s probably better looks on the board. If you want to be getting involved in anything, maybe a Bucks first half, they come out, put some separation between them, then they can rest their guys the second half and not have to worry too much about exerting energy in a game that shouldn’t provide too many difficulties for them down the stretch.

Jay Money:

What about Bucks first quarter, Josh? A few people in the chat liking Bucks in the first quarter. Would you look at Bucks first quarter minus four and a half here?

Josh:

Yeah, I mean, the Pacers have struggled first quarter for the majority of the season as well for whatever reason. Their starting lineups of come out slow, and it’s often the bench it has to spark things for them and get that offense clicking again. So if Milwaukee’s offense is firing early, then yeah, I don’t see a world where the Pacers are able to keep up, so probably a decent look there as well.

Jay Money:

What about you, Chris? Do you think Bucks first quarter minus four and a half has some substance to it?

Chris Farley:

Yeah, I think maybe Bucks first half team total too, something like that. Bucks are number one pace team, tempo team in the NBA right now, too, so these two teams can fly up and down that court, and if they’re going to do it, they’re going to do it early, right? So I do like those looks on the Bucks tonight. I’ve just made up my mind about today’s slate, but that would be the way to look.

Jay Money:

Yeah, I like it, I like it. Definitely some good looks. Yeah, Pacers definitely been one of the worst teams in the first quarter all season, guys, so definitely could not talk you off Bucks in the first quarter now and laying the four and a half points, guys.

Last game up and then we’ll get to some Q&A in the chat, guys. Let’s go over here to the streets of Phoenix here. We’re headed to the desert, guys. Suns laying eight points at the house versus the Orlando Magic in this one on the road, getting back eight points here. If you’d like to go the money line route, the Phoenix Suns are laying minus 320 on the money line at home, or you can get back plus 263 if you’d like to go with the road underdog in this one. Over and under sitting at 228 and a half in this one.

I know for me personally, I will go with the Suns to start off this game quick. In the first quarter, Suns minus two and a half to get things off started. Like I said, coming off three straight losses here, you head out on the road trip after this, so you do want to get a win at the house before you head out on that road trip, and you want to start this game early as well. Magic traveling cross country and going to cross country in this one. I like Suns first quarter in this one. Chris, how you looking at this game, my brother?

Chris Farley:

Yeah, the only way to look at this game I think is the Suns. Right now, the Clippers and the Warriors creeping up on the Suns in the Western Conference standings, and obviously with Kevin Durant out, that’s probably a little more possible, like we’re seeing. Three straight losses as well, against some good teams, but this is a Suns team who’s going to want to get some rhythm and momentum heading into the later part of the season. When Kevin Durant returns, that’ll definitely help. Then Devin Booker doesn’t have to be the number one, which I think is good for the Suns. I’m just always crapping on Booker, sorry about that, but it’s true.

But yeah, this is a team, against the Magic, especially at home, the Phoenix Suns are really good, they’re high-paced, they’re defense steps up, and Orlando hasn’t been the same defensive team that we saw earlier in the season, really starting to figure out their parts, but bottom third in the NBA in defensive efficiency over the last week or two. So this could be a show for the Suns tonight to go off pretty healthy. I think the point guard is a little banged up. We’ll see what happens there. But no excuse for the Suns not to win this game, to cover. Maybe look at a team total, or you look at the Magic team total under. I don’t hate those looks, again, but I think everything is right about this line. The Suns without Durant right now aren’t a team that I expect to just blow teams out of the water necessarily game-to-game, and the Magic are still a formidable team. So Suns lean, not a play for me.

Jay Money:

All right, gotcha. Yeah, Josh, the Magic here coming off a 18 point loss to the San Antonio Spurs here. I mean, what are we doing here? The Magic actually could have made the play-in tournament. You can’t be losing like that to the Spurs, especially when you’re laying seven points, so it really brings cautions for me to looking towards the Magic really for the rest of the season after that output in the last game here, Josh. What do you think happens in this one? Is the sun out and shining where you live right now, Josh?

Josh:

It most certainly is this side of the world. Look, I grabbed Suns minus seven last night, minus eight probably my cutoff point for them in this one. I do have it between eight and a half, nine. I think that this is a matchup for them that they really shouldn’t have too many difficulties negating. Their defense should have little trouble I think shutting down this Orlando offense, which has been a little rough on the road for the majority of the season, and like you said, they seem to be bumbling their way to the finish line a bit here. I’m still not convinced that they’re a team that necessarily wants to make the play-in. I think they’re still a year or two away from being a genuine playoff team anyway. So for them it might, again, be in their best interest to sort of drop these games, try and get the best lottery odds possible, and just sort of reload for next season.

So for me, everything screams Phoenix in this spot, everything screams Phoenix in this matchup. I think the Suns offense can get going as well against an Orlando defense that doesn’t travel anywhere near as well as what they perform at home. So there’s still a team for me that in home underdogs, I think the Orlando Magic could be very valuable down the stretch, but when you’re asking them to perform on the road, this young team just doesn’t seem to have it in them to show up night in, night out at the moment, especially not against a team who is highly motivated and like you said, needs to start stacking up some wins in a pretty log-jammed Western Conference.

So for me, Suns, I agree with you, Suns early, and I think the Suns often as well, so they should get this one done down the stretch of the game. I don’t see them giving up too much down in the final few minutes either to allow Orlando back in to cover this number. So, happy to lay the eight. Like I said, I grabbed a seven, but eight is probably the cutoff point for me. No issue with it whatsoever if you want to jump on now.

Jay Money:

I like it, I like it. Glad we’re in line to know. Yeah, the way I see it, Suns early build a lead, then they can rest up their older guys in the second half of this one, man. So Suns early and often is what we’re liking in this one, guys. We broke down all five of the games, now it’s time to get to some Q&A. I’m on Suns first quarter minus two and a half official, and our guy Josh is rocking with the Suns minus eight official as well, man. Let’s cash both of those, my guys. Let’s get to some Q&A in this one, man. Our guy Aaron [inaudible 00:24:30], first question up, says, are we liking any player props today, Chris?

Chris Farley:

Yeah, I would avoid the Bucks and Nuggets just because of the blowout potential there. If you want to look at some of their bench players, some of those players that can come in and get more action in those games, maybe that’s something to check out. Again, in Toronto, that’s a pretty good spot. I mean, I don’t know if they’re going to win that game. I certainly don’t think that they’re going to cover that line necessarily. But it’s a good spot for Siakam, maybe Jakob Poeltl, things like that. Suns too, maybe that’s a closer game than people think until the end, so that one maybe you’ll look at some things.

But not a great slate for me for props either, guys. I mean, these are huge lines in a lot of these games. Sacramento and Brooklyn too with the injury report, the weird line, just nothing stands out to me, unfortunately.

Jay Money:

Yeah, no it’s definitely a tough slate, man, I’ll tell you that right now. It’s definitely a tough card here, Josh. Are you liking any player props? I know I didn’t really have my eyes on any today either. Do you like any player props today, Josh? Anything catching your eye?

Josh:

Yeah, I love SGA props today against Toronto. I think that the Raptors still struggle against scoring guards. Fred VanVleet’s certainly not going to be able to stop him at the point of attack. He should be able to get into the paint, score pretty efficiently as well as he has basically all season, so his points prop something worth looking at for me.

For that Phoenix game, I think there’s a few Suns you could probably make a fair argument for. Deandre Ayton, his points, points and rebounds, both of those guys, I think him and Devin Booker are probably going to be able to have whatever it is that they want to do against the Orlando Magic. Booker’s assist prop a really good one as well. He’s been certainly playing a very high level of facilitator role for them lately. I think that that probably continues again tonight. You’ll get him and Ayton in a lot of pick and roll situations. So his assist line, his points and rebounds assists, I would be looking both of those, and like I said, Deandre Ayton’s matchup as well, his points and rebounds for me.

Jay Money:

Yeah, could not talk you off that as well, my guy. [inaudible 00:26:30] in the chat says, what about Devin Booker’s three point prop, Chris? We know you love Booker. Nah, I’m messing with you. But you don’t even have to answer this one if you don’t want.

Chris Farley:

No, no, no, I’ll answer that. Actually, I think this is a great spot for Booker, and I think he’s a really solid number two. I mean, he’s like a Ray Allen type of player, so I like that tonight.

Just want to bring up a prop that Ski had on the show yesterday before I forget. Anthony Edwards, coaches emphasizing him facilitating the ball more. Had a seven assist last night. His prop was I think three and a half. So we’ve seen that now in two straight games. He’s really emphasizing facilitating the ball more. So look at that for Anthony Edwards. Then for our audience, in case they don’t know, I don’t know if you guys bet on UVA, but UVA, perennial March Madness titan, just lost to Furman. So that just happened while we were on the show. That’s the biggest March Madness upset right away, guys, right from the first slate of games. That’s wild.

Jay Money:

Yeah, a lot of my guys were on Furman as well, I know it, man.

Chris Farley:

Love that.

Jay Money:

I hadn’t really been participating in the college basketball, man. But Josh, what do you think about Devin Booker’s three point prop at two and a half, my guy? Should Booker go bonkers in this one from three?

Josh:

Yeah, he’s going to have the opportunity to do so. I still think that the Magic give up a lot of good looks on the perimeter as well. They’re not a team that necessarily defends the three point line particularly well. They have the length inside to make life uncomfortable. They do a good job of packing the paint at times. So there’s definitely going to be opportunity for him out there. Like I said, I couldn’t talk you off any sort of Devin Booker prop, I don’t think, in a match up like this, so I wouldn’t be betting it under, that’s for sure. I have no issue if you want to try and take an over there.

Jay Money:

Yeah, I couldn’t talk you off Devin Booker three point prop. He does go bonkers versus somewhat like bottom tier teams as well man. So yeah, Booker should actually go crazy in this one. I hope he hit three threes in the first quarter in this one, man. So yeah, I’d lean that over two and a half, man, for sure. Yeah, you got me looking towards something now. But next question up, Vincent Hawkins says, Joker, Jokic, triple-double here tonight, Chris?

Chris Farley:

You know what? I don’t like it because Jokic is not the problem for the Nugget’s recent woes, right? I mean, he’s still taking care of business, he’s still getting triple-doubles. But the rest of his supporting staff there, supporting cast, needs to pick it up a little bit. So I’m not looking at that, especially for the blowout potential in that game. He could sit most of the third and fourth quarter if it’s a double digit lead at the end of the first half, so it’s not my favorite look.

Jay Money:

Yeah, I’d like to know what the price is on that. With Jokic, I know he’s spoke about not really caring about MVP, but he is slipping, he’s not the favorite anymore guys. So this could be a game where I feel like he might try to stat pad. This could be one where he might have a triple-double by halftime. We’ve seen it happen before. So personally, today I actually do think Jokic could get a triple-double. I think they can do whatever the hell they want versus this Pistons team, and then when you need to get over the speed bump, it’s just what the doctor ordered up in the Detroit Pistons here, Josh. Do you think Joker is live to go for a triple-double in this one?

Josh:

Yeah, definitely. But like you said, I want to see the price there. Obviously you’d be wanting to get some sort of plus money at a minimum, and a decent amount as well, even if this is Detroit. But he’s going to be able to score at will on the inside, he’ll be able to crash the glass as well against a Detroit team that doesn’t have a ton of length outside of James Wiseman at the moment, and the opportunity for assists will always be there against this Detroit team as well, especially a lot of those kick outs to the perimeter. So everything lines up for a triple-double, but it’s all price-dependent as to whether I’d recommend actually betting it.

Jay Money:

Yeah, you can get Jokic at at plus 160 to win the MVP, guys, for all his believers out there. You can get plus 160 on Jokic, not for a triple-double tonight, but to win the MVP, guys.

But that’s it for the questions today, guys. We broke down all five games and went through every question that was presented to us. Now it’s time to recap our best bets in this one and try to go get some cash in this one, guys.

Our guy Josh rocking with Thunder plus the six and a half in that one versus the Raptors. He’s also taking Suns full game minus eight, and give me the Suns in the first quarter minus two and a half in that one. Also couldn’t talk you off those Booker props as well, guys. It looks like Jokic triple-double is plus 120, guys, if you’d like to go with that, man.
