Kemba Walker Total Points

Over 17.5 -125

Under 17.5-105

This prop stuck out like a sore thumb as Walker has been cold as ice as of late. He’s been really non-existent in his last two games, averaging a mere 8.5 points per game against the Thunder and Spurs. Walker must now face another tough opponent on the road in the Miami Heat. Al Jefferson has been carrying the Bobcats; take the under.

Pick- UNDER 18 -115

Randy Foye- Total Points

Over 16.5 -125

Under 16.5 -105

What NBA odds makers are failing to take into consideration is the return of Ty Lawson. Lawson will be playing tonight and this will take away from some of Foye’s production. In his last 3 games, without Ty Lawson playing, Randy Foye averaged 16 points per game. The under is the play as Lawson will be looking to make a splash in his return against Minnesota.

Pick- Under 16.5 -105

Rudy Gay -Total Points

Over 21.5 -130

Under 21.5 – Even

Rudy Gay has been on a relentless tear as of late, scoring over 22 points in each of his last 5 games. (2 games over 30 points). It didn’t matter when DeMarcus Cousins sat out a game and it won’t matter when Cousins is playing. Gay is on one of the best runs of his career and the Kings allow him the latitude to shoot often.

Pick- Over 21.5 -130

Kenneth Faried- Total Points and Rebounds

Over 21 -115

Under 21-115

I’m not a huge Kenneth Faried fan because at times he can be very inconsistent. Expect Faried to see the ball more often from a very unselfish Ty Lawson in what should be a high scoring game. Go with the over as your pick.

Pick- Over 21 -115

Gordon Hayward- Total Points

Over 17.5 -130

Under 17.5- EV

Although Utah isn’t a good team due to lack of experience, they have a lot of young talent. He might not be the most physically gifted player on the team, but currently, Gordon Hayward is the Jazz’s go to guy. He’s averaged 20 points in his last 3 games and against a very weak Milwaukee squad, look for Hayward to surpass the 17.5 point total mark.

Pick- Over 17.5 -130

Tim Hardaway Jr.- Total Points

Over 11.5 -130

Under 11.5 EV

Tim Hardaway Jr. has been one of the only bright spots on a disappointing New York Knicks squad. He can shoot the 3-ball efficiently and if given the playing time, will score in double figures. The Knicks might want to start looking at the future in Hardaway Jr. They’re also playing a weak Pistons team. Make this a small bet because he’s a rookie, but take Jr. with the over.

Pick- Over -130

Carmelo Anthony –Total Points

Over 29.5 -130

Under 29.5 -EV

Plain and simple; the Knicks are exhausted after an embarrassing loss to Joakim Noah and the Chicago Bulls on Sunday. After his record breaking 62 point game at MSG, Melo has been on fire, but in the last 3 games has failed to crack the 30 point barrior. He’s also possibly looking ahead to free agency. From watching some of his missed shots against the Bulls, exhaustion was definitely a factor. Look for Melo to share the ball with his teammates against the equally poor Pistons.

Pick- Under 29.5 –EV

Good luck everyone. Let’s make some cash. Odds are courtesy of Bovada Sportsbook.
