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.
<p><b style="font-size:1em">Total Points For Kemba Walker</b></p> <p><b>Over 16.5 -125</b></p> <p><b>Under 16.5 – 105</b></p> <p>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.</p> <p><b>Pick- Under 16.5 -105</b></p> <p><b>Total Points For Al Jefferson</b></p> <p><b>Over 22.5 -125</b></p> <p><b>Under 22.5 – 105</b></p> <p>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.</p> <p><b>Pick- Over 22.5 -125</b></p> <p style="text-align:center"><em><em>Take a look at <a href="" title="NBA Prop Bet Directory" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">SBR's NBA Prop Bet Directory</a></em></em></p> <p><b>Total Rebounds + Assists For Paul George</b></p> <p><b>Over 10.5 -125</b></p> <p><b>Under 10.5 -105</b></p> <p>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.</p> <p><b>Pick- Over 10.5 -125</b></p> <p><b>Total Rebounds For DeMarcus Cousins</b></p> <p><b>Over 11.5 -155</b></p> <p><b>Under 11.5 +125</b></p> <p>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.</p> <p><b>Pick- Over 11.5 -155</b></p> <p><b>Total Points For Brandon Knight</b></p> <p><b>Over 17.5 -125</b></p> <p><b>Under 17.5 -105</b></p> <p>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.</p> <p><b>Pick- Under 17.5 -105</b></p> <p style="text-align:center"><em>Be sure to check out all of <a href="/nba-basketball/" title="Free NBA picks available daily from SBR" target="_blank">our Free NBA Picks</a></em></p> <p><b>Total Points For Ersan Ilyasova</b></p> <p><b>Over 13 -125</b></p> <p><b>Under 13 -105</b></p> <p>“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.</p> <p><b>Pick- Over 13 -125</b></p> <p><b><a target="_blank" title="NBA Picks: Bulls vs. Pistons" href="/nba-basketball/free-picks/bulls-2-5-vs-pistons-nba-picks-tonight-a-37833/">Total Rebounds For Greg Monroe</a></b></p> <p><b>Over 9 -125</b></p> <p><b>Under 9 -105</b></p> <p>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.</p> <p><b>Pick- Under 9 -105</b></p> <p><b>Good luck everyone!</b></p>
