With a lot of high scoring teams in NBA action for Tuesday, will we see a lot of overs in the prop betting that’s offered by the books? Let’s take a look and break down the games with some winning NBA picks.
<p><b>Fade Philly Rule</b></p> <p>Being that the Philadelphia 76’ers have the worst defense in the league and are sending out bench players to start the game, the fantasy league rule is to stack players against Philadelphia. <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Take a look at our NBA Prop Betting Directory" href="">When making props bets</a>, we might see a lot of over the totals, especially in where the Sixers are concerned.</p> <p><b>Total Points For Kevin Durant</b></p> <p><b>Over 28.5 -135</b></p> <p><b>Under 28.5 +105</b></p> <p>The over appears to be a “slam dunk” in this prop as not only have the Sixers lost 14 games in a row, they also allow a league’s worst 110.7 points per game. Add in the fact that Kevin Durant is the most prolific scorer in the game and this is an easy over. The only thing that would stop this from being an over is if Durant sits in the 4<sup>th</sup> quarter due to a blowout. I’ll take my chances.</p> <p><b>Pick- Over 28.5 -135</b></p> <p><b><a target="_blank" title="Take a look at our picks for the 76ers vs. Thunder game" href="/nba-basketball/free-picks/nba-picks-76ers-vs-thunder-a-37806/">Total Points For Russell Westbrook</a></b></p> <p><b>Over 18.5 -135</b></p> <p><b>Under 18.5 +105</b></p> <p>This is another easy over as Westbrook is one if not the best point guard in basketball. The 18.5 points is quite low for a player such as Westbrook ,who has averaged well over 20 points for his career. Westbrook will get plenty of opportunities to drive the ball through the Sixers Swiss Cheese-like defense and he has an above average outside shot.</p> <p><b>Pick- Over 18.5 -135</b></p> <p><b>Total Rebounds and Blocks for Serge Ibaka</b></p> <p><b>Over 11.5 -135</b></p> <p><b>Under 11.5 +105</b></p> <p>Ibaka gives the Thunder his usual 8 to 10 rebounds and 2+ blocks per game. With an inept Philly offense,  Ibaka could get many more chances and with Spencer Hawes traded, Ibaka should have less resistance to deal with. Make this a small bet, but I like the over here also.</p> <p style="text-align:center"><em>Be sure to check out all of our <a target="_blank" title="Free NBA picks available daily from SBR" href="/nba-basketball/">Free NBA Picks</a></em></p> <p><b>Pick- Over 11.5 -135</b></p> <p><b>Total Points For Thaddeus Young</b></p> <p><b>Over 21.5 -125</b></p> <p><b>Under 21.5 – 105</b></p> <p>With Jrue Holiday no longer a 76’er, Thaddeus Young has been a flatout beast all season long. Young is coming off of a huge performance against Orlando with 29 points and 8 rebounds. Along with Michael Carter Williams, Young has been one of the go to guys on this team. That said, he faces the best team in the West and on the road. Look for Young to underperform in tonight’s contest. The total is a bit high.</p> <p><b>Pick- Under 21.5 -105</b></p> <p><b>Total Points For Lebron James</b></p> <p><b>Over 29.5 -130</b></p> <p><b>Under 29.5 –EVEN</b></p> <p>Lebron feasted off of a weak Charlotte Bobcats defense in his last game to put up 61 points. This was done without Dwayne Wade and Wade’s status does have a bearing on this prop.</p> <p>I’m going to assume that Wade plays because he tends to sit out unnecessarily at times. The other issue is the clear mask that the NBA forced Lebron to wear. It didn’t seem to bother him at all. Don’t expect 61 points, but LBJ should crack the 30 point mark quite easily in a <a target="_blank" title="NBA Picks: Heat vs. Rockets" href="/nba-basketball/free-picks/bet-rockets-1-vs-heat-your-nba-picks-a-37795/">fast paced game against the Rockets</a>.</p> <p><b>Total Points For Blake Griffin</b></p> <p><b>Over 24.5 -130</b></p> <p><b>Under 24.5- Even</b></p> <p>Griffin is looking like he did in his rookie season; full of confidence and having a great chemistry with CP3. That said, Griffin’s number have tailed off just a bit in his last few games. He’s failed to score more than 23 points in his last 4 games. <a target="_blank" title="NBA Picks: Clippers vs. Suns" href="/nba-basketball/free-picks/clippers-3-vs-suns-nba-picks-a-37794/">Although tonight’s matchup</a> against Phoenix seems appealing, look for Griffin to stay under the 23 point mark in what’s expected to be a fast paced game.</p> <p><b>Pick- Under 24.5- Even</b></p>
