Last Slate: 3-1
Dallas Mavericks @ Denver Nuggets
Luka Doncic UNDER 22.5 Points (-122)
Luka Doncic has been battling some knee issues, and you can tell he isn’t right out there. He is shooting under 30% from three, and just 55% at the line. His overall shooting is sub 40% in the last five games. Doncic might also just be hitting a wall, but he goes up against a Denver team that has been one of the top backcourt defenses in the second half. Doncic has also struggled shooting the ball against Denver so far this season. Love Doncic and what he has done this season, but it is tough seeing him not at 100%.
Sacramento Kings @ Boston Celtics
Kyrie Irving OVER 4.5 Rebounds (-142)
Bogdan Bogdanovic OVER 1.5 Threes Made (-176)
Since the break, Sacramento is allowing 7.8 rebounds per game to opposing point guards, which is the fifth most. Over the course of the season, they rank 19th. We get some strong odds on Irving here, who has been averaging 5.8 rebounds per game in the last five. Boston is allowing the second most threes to opposing small forwards this season, and mainly because of the high volume. Bogdanovic is averaging two threes made per game in the last five, and is averaging 5.2 attempts per game in that span.
Cleveland Cavaliers @ Orlando Magic
Nikola Vucevic OVER 3.5 Assists (-156)
Nikola Vucevic has been contributing across the board this season, averaging nearly four assists per game. He has averaged 2.4 in his career. He is averaging 3.8 over the last five games, and had six in the last game against Cleveland. The Cavs rank 24th in assists allowed to opposing centers.
