Last Slate: 3-1
Brooklyn Nets @ Oklahoma City Thunder
Russell Westbrook OVER 23.5 Points (-122)
Russell Westbrook OVER 1.5 Made Threes (-172)
The point total on Russell Westbrook has dropped the last three games, despite his scoring production rising in the second half. Brooklyn used to be an easy team to target with point guards, but their defense has been a lot better this season. Since the break, Westbrook is averaging 3.3 threes made per game, and 30 points per game. With his improved three point shooting of late, I will take these odds for him to hit two or more. Both of these teams are in the top half in pace, this game sits with a 231 over/under.
Orlando Magic @ Washington Wizards
Tomas Satoransky OVER 18.5 Points + Assists (-118)
Tomas Satoransky managed to hit this mark five of the last six games, and since the break he is averaging 12.7 points per game and 7.0 assists. Over the last ten games, Orlando are allowing 8.7 assists per game to opposing point guards, and 25.5 points per game. Satoransky should continue to thrive, especially with his shot dropping over 50%. His minutes also give him an added bump, averaging 37.3 in that span.
Utah Jazz @ Phoenix Suns
Rudy Gobert OVER 12.5 Rebounds (-128)
Phoenix comes in as one the worst teams against centers. They also are one of the worst rebounding teams, ranking dead last in rebound differential. Against centers this season, they allow an average of 16 rebounds per game, which is the fifth most in the league. The 12.5 rebounds puts Gobert right at his season average this season, and he has averaged 13 in his last five games against Phoenix.
