Ryan’s NBA Sick Pix 4-17

Here are my NBA sick pix for March 17th. But first, a recap.

Quick Recap

After going 16-10 on the 10th and 12-7 on the last set of picks. let’s continue the positive streak. We hit the Hawks +2.5, the over in the Pacers game, Sabonis rebounds, Lakers ml, Lou Dort points, Maledon points, Celtics ml, Tatum rebounds, Kemba points, Powell points, Suns ml, and Ayton points. We missed Bam badly as he didn’t score much at all, the Pacers covering, Nunn points, Chris Paul double-double, Bazley rebounds, and T-wolves spread. Now lets hop into tonight’s sick pix and find some winners!

Cavs-Bulls

I love Colin Sexton tonight and his points being set at 24.5 points seems very doable. The Bulls are one of the worst teams in the league against point guards and are still missing Lavine. For +870 odds, I am very tempted to sprinkle a little on, but I will definitely hop on the 30+ at +275. I love Garland as a passer tonight and will hammer his assists over 6.5. For the +194, I could jump on him at 8+ as well. Garland over 17.5 points and 1.5 threes both seem like moves, as this matchup is very favorable and he’s hit the threes in seven straight games. I lean towards the under for Kevin Love’s rebounds, as his numbers have been all over the place, notably only going over in two of 5, where usually he had 11 in each game.

Jarrett Allen against Vucevic down low should be very fun to watch tonight. I’m leaning towards the over 14.5 for Allen, as he’s been hitting this very efficiently, but he will really be battling down low. I don’t like where Allen’s rebounds are set at (10.5), so I’m staying away from it. The Bulls are down, currently they are on a five-game losing streak, but Vucevic has been a beast over that stretch. I like Vucevic over 24.5, as somebody has to score tonight. I like the Cavs tonight, especially as the underdog. 

Pistons-Wizards

There are not many props currently offered in this game, but I like Rui Hachimora under 14.5 points. The last time he went over this was five games ago and he really hasn’t come close since. I like Deni Avdija over 6.5 rebounds and assists at +112. If it gets added, a Russ triple double and win is a great bet; he is always close and this is a very winnable game. I love Jerami Grant tonight and I think he’ll continue his nice little scoring stretch he’s on. Bradly Beal is coming off three straight 30+ point games and I like his under today, if they post it. Last, I like the Wizards moneyline, but the Pistons have been hanging around so this game could go either way. 

Grizzlies-Bucks 

Giannis is back, so I’m giving the Bucks the edge tonight. The Grizzlies are probably the worst team at closing out games in the league. They have lost two games where they held multiple possession leads late and lost due to missing free throws. Ja Morant missed four free throws down the stretch against the Knicks and again against the Pacers. Greyson Allen continued the trend last time out, setting Luka up for that incredible game winner. Tonight, I love Ja Morant over 18.5 for +100, as I think he will go off to try and attempt to beat a team as good as a fully healthy Bucks team. I’m leaning towards the over 4.5 rebounds at +100. Brooks is coming off a great night, so I like him to go over 17.5 again tonight. While I think it is a good bet to say Valanciunas shouldn’t hit 17.5 points.

I see Giannis having a great game tonight, but instead of being the main scorer, I see him flirting with a triple double. 25.5 points is something Giannis can get in his sleep, so the over should be safe. A final Giannis pick is 10+ assists, and while it is a dart toss, for the +1060 odds, I may have to throw some money on it. Khris Middleton over 5.5 assists and over 5.5 rebounds also look solid, as he’s had 9 rebounds in the last two and 8 rebounds the game before that. 

Suns-Spurs

The Spurs have been playing some really solid basketball lately, and for that I lean towards the Spurs +9.5. The Suns will probably win, but there is absolutely no value in their moneyline. Devin Booker is coming off two disappointing performances scoring the ball, but after getting stuck at 23 points last time out, I actually like him to go over 25 tonight. I’m leaning towards the over 26.5, as I think he’ll take over tonight. I love Ayton tonight for sure, and will hammer his over 16.5, and for the odds might ride 20+ for the +190. I also like his over 10.5 rebounds and think he’ll hit that as well.

Derozan is having a great season, but he’s got a super tough matchup tonight, so I’m riding his under 20.5 points. Dejounte Murray is coming off a triple-double and should have another solid performance tonight. I think Murray over 11.5 rebounds and assists is a good bet to put some money on with your sick pix.
