Here are my NBA sick pix for 4-26!
The Hawks are red hot after winning seven of their last ten games. Even with Trae Young out, they still came back and beat the Bucks. Hawks should cruise tonight, with their three-point shooting fueling their success. Bogdan has been great picking up the slack for Trae and he should have another solid game tonight. While FanDuel only has Pistons props up, if they add Hawks, I like Bogdan to score 20-30 points tonight. In two head-to-head matchups this year, Capela is averaging 17-17 against the Pistons, so I also like his props tonight. I like his over 15.5 rebounds for + odds, because he is just such an unstoppable force on the glass. Jerami Grant will get his points tonight, he’s averaging just under 30 ppg against the Hawks in the last two meetings. Hammer his over at 22.5; he’s gone over in two straight and four of his last five games. I like Josh Jackson over 14.5 as well, he should get his fair share of shots up. Finally, I like Plumlee under 10.5 points, as he will have Capela all over him.
Currently no props are up in this game besides first basket, so that’s not too ideal. Lakers should cruise, with Schroeder most likely continuing his stretch of solid play. I like KCP tonight again to have a good game, and I might hop on him as the first basket scorer at +900. The lines are not great for this game, as the Lakers are still reacclimating after the return of AD. The Lakers ml is set at -620 and the spread is currently 10.5, and after losing three straight, they are not looking like a 10.5 point favorite over anybody.
Ben Simmons is still questionable but I like the Sixers -13, as they have been hanging with good teams, even with key guys out their last few games. I just don’t see the Thunder hanging in with them. Sadly, FanDuel only has props for the Thunder at the moment, but hammer Joel 30+ and to win if they end up adding it. Joel is a beast trying to secure himself as the NBA MVP, so he’ll need to go off again to have a chance of claiming that title. Bazley and Maledon should both hit the under for points, but my favorite play in this game is Maledon over 4.5 assists for + odds.
I’m touching very little, if anything, in this game. The Cavs are my kryptonite, and I seem to be on the wrong side of them almost every single time. I like Siakam over 22.5 points; he has hit this in three of his last four and needs redemption after his 9-point performance in their last matchup against the Cavs. I love VanVleet assists over 4.5, and I will probably end up playing him for 6+ for + odds. I like Lowry under 15.5 points; he hasn’t really been scoring lately and I like VanVleet and Siakam to go over a little more. OG has been playing some incredible basketball, scoring 20+ in three straight games, so OG over 17.5 tonight is a good bet. He has a solid matchup and should get the benefit of being the third or fourth option offensively.
This should be a very good game, and I’ll be tuned in from start to finish. The Suns are coming off a tough loss to Brooklyn yesterday, and the Knicks are on a 9-game winning streak. The Suns are not playing great, losing two straight and barely scraping a win against what was basically just Embiid. I’m riding with my team at home, Knicks ml. Even with Burks still out, I love this team; they play so hard on both sides of the court and have such great chemistry. RJ has taken incredible leaps in his game (too big to be considered strides), and he is truly a closer. He can suck for three quarters and I’d still want him out there in the fourth. When the game matters, he steps up. Give me RJ 20+ tonight, as he should get some really solid looks. Jae Crowder is out, so I like Reggie Bullock over 12.5 points. He’s just a sniper from deep and is just playing out of his mind this year. You give him half an inch, and he gives you three points almost every time. I’m leaning towards under 15.5 for Ayton, as Nerlens is such a tough defender who will be giving him trouble all game. The Knicks do not rebound well on defense, so I love Ayton over on rebounds, as he should eat off the glass.
The Bulls are another team I love to stay away from, as they are way too inconsistent. Vuc already has played the Heat four times and is averaging 25 points, so I like him over on points. Coby White over 15.5 seems like another solid play. Bam over 18.5 points is also very solid and should hit as well. The Heat win this game for sure and should cover -5.5.
Clippers are hot, even with Kawhi not playing, winning their last nine of ten, so let’s ride the hot hand Clippers ml. I like Zion over 27.5 points, as he is just so efficient scoring the ball. Zion over 8.5 rebounds also seems solid after coming off 14 last game. Paul George will need another huge night tonight to win, and I do not like where his prop is set at tonight. Almost 6 points higher than his season average scares me so I am staying away. Marcus Morris has been terrible in both matchups with the Pels this year, only averaging 4 points in 20 mpg on 23% shooting. I’m leaning towards his under 16.5, based on past performances. I also like Ingram over 23.5, as he puts that up pretty much every night.
I like the Timberwolves +10, as the Jazz lost to them last night without Mitchell. Anthony Edwards over 20.5 is probably my favorite play, as he is a legit threat for 20+ a night. I also like Towns over 24.5, as he is getting so much help from Edwards and Druss, his life down low is a breeze. The Timberwolves are playing so much better now that Russell is healthy and all three can be on the court. Timberwolves still aren’t great defensively, so I love Bojan over 19.5 after coming off 30 last game. Conley over 17.5 points is a solid move, as he has a nice matchup and should get plenty of good looks. I also like Rudy under 15.5 points as he isn’t really like that on offense. This game should be pretty high scoring, especially after last night’s low scoring game.
The Grizzlies are very exciting right now and are playing some clutch basketball. Losing to the Nuggets last time in double overtime, I like the Grizzlies +4.5. Jonas didn’t play that game and Jokic went insane, but that probably won’t happen tonight. Jokic will still be great, I just don’t see 47 points again. I love Jokic over 26.5, as he should be carrying again, I also like him over 10.5 rebounds for +100. Michael Porter Jr. has been great and I like him again tonight over 22.5. Ja should have another solid game tonight, as the Nuggets are in the middle of the pack against point guards. Hammer Ja over 20.5, as he’s been averaging 26 against Denver this year. Brook’s prop should be set higher than 16.5 in my opinion, as he’s hit in four of his last five and is currently averaging 20 against Denver.
Hammer the over on points in this game, as both teams give up points like very few others in the league. The Kings are terrible defensively and 224 is super low for this game. I like Luka 35+ points tonight, but currently, there are no Mavs props up. I’d ride the over on Haliburton points at 16.5 because since Fox’s injury, his role has expanded. Harrison Barnes was unreal last night, and for that, I’m on his under 19.5 points tonight. I doubt Barnes can pull that off on a back-to-back. I don’t like Buddy tonight either, as he was unconscious shooting last night, so he’s due for a stinker.
