The betting props are out and it’s time to make some money. The numbers are set and I really think the bettor can take advantage of what’s provided for this Wednesday with a little due diligence. Keep your eye on the injury reports up until game time. Time to make our NBA picks.

Total Points For Kemba Walker

Over 16.5 -125

Under 16.5 – 105

The odds makers haven’t made any adjustments with Walker’s point total and what’s worse is that he’s playing a ferocious Indiana Pacers defense. Walker has been a disaster in his last 3 games, averaging just 8 points per contest. The under looks like a nice play in this situation. Charlotte is at home, but it won’t be enough for Kemba to score 17 points.

Pick- Under 16.5 -105

Total Points For Al Jefferson

Over 22.5 -125

Under 22.5 – 105

We stay in the same game and AJ has been a flatout beast, coming off of a 38 point, 19 rebound performance against a tough Miami Heat team. The fantasy league rule is to not take a player against the Indiana Pacers, but I’m going to break it with Jefferson, who has found a home with Charlotte. The points have to come from somewhere. Take the over.

Pick- Over 22.5 -125

Total Rebounds + Assists For Paul George

Over 10.5 -125

Under 10.5 -105

George is on the verge of coming an elite player in this league. A couple of weeks ago, he was slumping, but he’s seemed to return to his old form and is a very versatile basketball player. George has eclipsed the 10.5 mark for rebounds and assists combined in 5 out of his last 7 games. He’s also coming off of a huge game against Golden State in which he picked up 12 rebounds and 4 assists. Look for the momentum to carry over.

Pick- Over 10.5 -125

Total Rebounds For DeMarcus Cousins

Over 11.5 -155

Under 11.5 +125

Odds makers appear to be baiting the public into taking the offer; I’m taking the bait. Cousins is a super-productive and talented basketball player. The only issue with him is the foul trouble that he get’s into. He’s facing a rather weak opponent in Milwaukee and look for Cousins to grab 12 rebounds or more tonight and lay the juice.

Pick- Over 11.5 -155

Total Points For Brandon Knight

Over 17.5 -125

Under 17.5 -105

Although Knight has had a very respectable season on a lousy team, his production has went down as of late. In his last 2 games Knight has averaged 12.5 points per game and one would think that he would get a decent amount of shots against a bottom-feeder such as Sacramento. 17.5 is a bit high and I’m leaning towards the under in this spot.

Pick- Under 17.5 -105

Total Points For Ersan Ilyasova

Over 13 -125

Under 13 -105

“Illy” can be a baffling player at times as he’s the definition of inconsistent. One game he can score 7 points and the next game like his last one against Utah, he breaks out with 31 points. Look for Ilyasova to carry some of that momentum over against a weak Kings club. Take the over.

Pick- Over 13 -125

Total Rebounds For Greg Monroe

Over 9 -125

Under 9 -105

With Andre Drummond doing a fantastic job of controlling the boards for Detroit, this leaves less opportunity for Greg Monroe to get double figures like he has in the past. Monroe is concentrated more on his offense lately and has scored in double figures in 10 out of his last 10 games. He’s also playing against a tough Chicago Bulls defense and will have to deal with the likes of Boozer and Noah in the middle. The under is the play.

Pick- Under 9 -105

Good luck everyone!
