Here are my NBA sick pix for April 10th!
The Raptors are without VanVleet, Lowry, and Rodney Hood, so as difficult it is to really trust the Cavs, I lean towards the underdog winning here. Jarrett Allen is out, but Garland and Sexton have been picking up the scoring slack recently. Garland had 37 points against the Spurs and 21 points last game against OKC. While Sexton has scored 20+ in 7 of 8 including 36 last time against the Raptors. I like Collin Sexton over 25 points and could really like 30+ as well. After two 50-point performances last night, could tonight feature that trend again? Sexton to drop 40+ could be a really interesting dart toss at +1800.
As they couldn’t stop him last matchup and are without their starting backcourt tonight. I like Siakam over 25 points and Boucher 20+ at +122. As Boucher is coming off a 37 and 19 performance last game and 19 the game before. I like OG under 6.5 rebounds as he hasn’t hit that in 4 of his last 5.
I like the Nets to handle business, especially with Durant playing his second game since returning. I really don’t trust the spread at 10.5 on either side. As the Nets have only covered 10.5 in 3 of their last 5. I lean towards Kyrie over 26.5 points as he’s been carrying the scoring load. But he has gone under in 3 of 5 topping out at 24 in two of them and 15 in the other game.
Jeff Green has been on a very nice run scoring, but I am leaning towards under 10.5 as he’s bound to have a disappointing performance. I love Andre Drummond over 14.5 points as none of the big men on the Nets can really hang with him inside so over 11.5 rebounds should also be solid. Schroder has not been shooting very well from the field, but he gets to the line so much. His over under is higher than his season average and I like the under as he hasn’t hit it in his last 3 and in his two games hitting it with exactly 17.
Sixers should still handle business even with Embiid banged up. I like Ben Simmons under 15.5 points as he is just not aggressive on offense at all. With Embiid struggling last night, he took 6 shots, as a star player you got to step up offensively when your best player isn’t on, and he rarely does that. I like Danny Green over 9.5 points especially if Embiid doesn’t play, as Green has been getting a healthy amount of looks. Seth Curry under 12.5 is a solid play, because he has been on a very rough slump shooting the ball in his last three games. Tonight is probably the Tobias show again, and I lean towards his over at 21.5 points.
I like Fox under 25.5 as this game could get ugly and he might not get a ton of late game minutes. I love Richaun Holmes under 9.5 rebounds, as he hasn’t hit 10 in his last four games. I lile Donovan Mitchell over 4.5 rebounds as he has been putting up solid rebounding numbers this season and has gone over in his last three games. I also like Mitchell over 30.5 but that is very high so I might stay away.
The Kings give up a lot of points to point guards, and even though Conley hasn’t been scoring his last two games, I like him to score 17.5 points tonight and could even grab his points at 20+. I like Harrison Barnes over 13.5 as he should get some good looks as the defense will have their hands full with Fox. Rudy Gobert over 14.5 rebounds is another solid good play for +104.
Pistons have been playing well and 11.5 is very high for a spread, but in their last 5 the only two games they lost, they got destroyed. While the Blazers haven’t been great either, the spread is untouchable in this game. I like Dame to have a great game tonight, as he is just incredible and has a great matchup. Kanter is a rebounding machine, so I lean towards his over at 11.5. The top three scorers on the Blazers all have had great success against this Pistons team this year, so all three could have solid showings. I love the over in this game at 227.5. Add that to your NBA sick pix no matter what.
I like Russell Westbrook to get a triple double again tonight as he has just been automatic almost this season. I lean towards the under on Russ points at 23.5 as I think he can get close but not go over. Jae Crowder under 10.5 is a lock for this game. For Ayton I lean towards under for his points at 16.5 as he struggled in their last head-to-head only scoring 8 points. Booker should have another great game tonight, with 33 in the last head-to-head he had 33. So I expect similar results tonight as well.
