Ryan’s NBA Sick Pix: April 22nd

Here are my sick pix for April 22nd!

Suns-Celtics

I like the Suns tonight with my sick pix, even on a back-to-back, as they are just such a solid team. Jaylen Brown is doubtful and Robert Williams and Fournier are both out. Tonight, I like Kemba under 20.5 tonight as he’s still under the weather and he only averages 17.8 ppg. I like Marcus Smart tonight and am riding the over at 14.5 points. I also like him over 4.5 assists as he’s been averaging 16 and 6 over his last 5 games. Another play I love Tatum under 28.5 points as this is a really tough matchup for him. The Suns give up the least points per game to small forwards in the league. On top of Brown being potentially out, the focus will be solely on Tatum. Hammer his over 4.5 assists for positive odds as he had 7 last time they played as he is averaging 5 over the last five games and had 10 last game out. I love Tatum over 11.5 rebounds and assists as he is coming off a triple double and has been grabbing boards at a great rate as of late.

For the Suns, I like Chris Paul over 15.5 points with my sick pix, as he is scoring very well this week. 20+ in the last two games, and two double doubles in the last 5. Boston gives up its fair share of points, so I expect Paul to step up again and carry some of the load. Devin Booker under 25.5 is the play as he hasn’t hit 25 in huis last 6 games, getting stuck at 24 3 of his last 8 games. Hammer Booker over 3.5 assists as he’s been cruising past that number. He had 11 last time these teams played, and had 7 in 2 straight. I like Ayton double-double tonight as he had 16 and 11 last head-to-head.  I also like Ayton over 15.5 points as he’s been scoring pretty consistently over his past 5.  

Pelicans-Magic

Zion, that’s pretty much it. He’s going to have an incredible game tonight, as there is nobody that can guard him. Kelly Olynik had 24 on the Magic two games ago, so I love Zion 30+ and win tonight. Ingram also has a very favorable matchup and I like him and Zion to both score their points and cruise to a much-needed victory. I like Lonzo over 9.5 rebounds and assists as he is capable of a triple double any night. 

For Orlando, I love Okeke over 4.5 rebounds as he had 10 in their last head-to-head. I also like Wendell Carter over 8.5 rebounds as he had 13 boards the last time he faced New Orleans. My favorite play is Wendell Carter over 14.5 points and rebounds. Lock that into your sick pix

Sixers-Bucks

So, the Sixers still haven’t released an injury report, so as its this late I’m assuming its most likely the same as yesterday. Meaning no Ben or Tobias. Why else would the line be set at 8 if they were expected to play. Looks like another night of Embiid solely carrying his team against a tough opponent. Embiid needs 30 tonight as if he doesn’t, they get laughed out of the arena and lose by 20+. The Bucks give up a ton of threes, so I love Danny Green over 10.5 for +106. I even love Danny Green 15+ points for +360. 

For the Bucks, I love Giannis over 27.5 as he’s averaging 32 against Philly this year. Giannis 30+ and win is a really solid prop double that should hit tonight. For Middleton, I lean towards his under that’s set at 20.5 points, as he only had 15 last time these teams faced off.  I like Jrue tonight but wish his points prop was set a little lower than 18.5 because I think he has a very solid game, but 19 points might be too high for him. 

Pistons-Spurs

I like Demar to score 20 tonight as he has a pretty solid matchup. Demar hasn’t really been scoring as of late, so I do not like his prop set at 21.5, but tonight’s also a great opportunity for him to break out of his scoring drought. I do not like Grant tonight as he has a brutal matchup against the team that allows the least ppg to power forwards in the league, so hammer his under if FD adds it. As of right now, only spurs props are listed so maybe that changes but probably not. Spurs -9 should be another solid play, as they are the better team.

Hornets-Bulls

I genuinely do not want to touch a Bulls game after their continued lack of consistency. Vuc was absolutely terrible last night scoring 9 points early, and being held scoreless the entire rest of the game. A game where the awful Cavs, who had recently lost to the bulls, blew them out by 16 and had a 20+ point leads for a majority of the game. Vuc over 23.5 should be a solid play as Chicago is in desperate need of him to bounce back.  I love Coby White as he had 18 in the last head-to-head and is starting again with Lavine out. His over is set at 15.5 and that should be easy money for him. 

The Hornets have also been brutal of late, losing four of five. I love Terry tonight, as I feel Scary Terry makes a triumphant return tonight to destroy these down bad Bulls. Terry played terrible in their first head-to-head only scoring 10 points, but he’s topped 20 in four of his last 5. Hammer his over at 22.5 and sprinkle some on 30+ and even 35+ because Terry can shoot the lights out and has a great matchup. Miles Bridges has been playing some incredible basketball lately and I lean towards his over at 16.5 points.

Lakers-Mavs

Anthony Davis has been sitting on the bench watching the Lakers struggle for a while now. I think he has a gigantic game tonight. Fanduel needs to add his props because I’m 100% sprinkling money on him 35+ and even 40+, as KP can’t hold his jock. Whoever KP gets put on, whether its Drummond or AD, they will give him buckets.  I like Schroder for over 15.5 points as he’s just a consistent scorer with a solid matchup. Riding the under on Kuzma as with AD “100%”, Kuzma’s role decreases. I lean towards the over on Luka’s points, as KP will be in jail all night whenever AD is on him. The Mavs will need Luka to go off. For that reason, Luka 35+ and win is a solid dart toss at +560

I like the Mavs to win this game, as it’ll take some time to get the rhythm back with Davis returning to the lineup. I could see AD hitting the first basket, as the Lakers should try and get him going as soon as they possibly can. 

Dart Tosses

Devin Booker double-double and win +1700

Marcus Smart 20+ and win (strictly for the odds, if Boston somehow wins, Smart hits 20)

Danny Green 5+ threes (sneaky play that I love)

Terry Rozier 30+ and win +750

Luka Doncic 35+ and win +560

Anthony Davis first basket +600
