Luka Doncic 30+ Points / Mavericks Win -126 via FanDuel
The leader of the Mavericks has taken his scoring to the next level lately, and it is hard to see him slowing down against this Knicks team. Yes, they have won a couple of road games of late, but they haven’t faced a team like these Mavs over the short stretch. Over the last four games, he has eclipsed thirty points three times and is averaging 33.8 points per game over this stretch, and the Mavs have won all four games. Look for him to continue this hot play and lead the Mavs to another win here!
Bam Adebayo Double-Double / Heat Win +120 via FanDuel
Bam Adebayo is a big part of everything that the Heat do, and he has been playing extremely well of late, averaging 18 points and 10.8 rebounds per game over the last four games, in which the Heat have a record of 3-1. He has only missed scoring in double-digits twice this calendar year and has had at least ten rebounds in each of the last four games. Look for him to approach 20 and 10 here against a Suns team that just let Wendell Carter grab 12 boards.
Marcus Smart OVER 12.5 Points -110 via DraftKings
Speaking of prior matchups, we saw what Kyrie Irving did to the Hornets last night, and it was just a microcosm of how bad they have been at defending against guards. Marcus Smart is no Kyrie on the offensive side of the ball, but leave him open, and he will make you pay. He has scored at least 13 points in four straight and five of six games, and the team has won five of six games as well. The key is that he is hitting 42.9% of his threes di lui. He is averaging 13.8 points per game over this six-game stretch and should be a key part of why one of the hottest teams in the league, are in this game once again!
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander OVER 29.5 Points +100 via DraftKings
It seems clear that teams know that SGA is going to get his, and they can still win against this Thunder team. With three more players ruled out for the season, including Lu Dort, Shai has taken his scoring to the next level. He has scored thirty or more points in six of the last seven, even though the Thunder’s scoring margin has been -14.5. He averages 33.3 points per game over this stretch, and he has been a sharpshooter from distance in the limited attempts he has taken. He had 33 points against this Minnesota team just five days ago, and it’s hard to think they will deviate from their game plan, given that they won by 37 points. Back Shai with confidence!
