The Joker is back at it again posting some ridiculous stat lines to start the season and he gets a nice look at the Pelicans.
Denver Nuggets @ New Orleans Pelicans (12:10pm)
Nikola Jokic’s numbers this year are off the charts, even by his lofty standards. The Joker has been insane on the glass this season easily leading the NBA with 13.9 rebounds per game – his last six games he’s going at 15.7 per game covering 12.5 rebounds every time.
This is a really nice match-up for Jokic when he comes up against Jonas Valanciunas. In 18 games he’s come up against the Lithuanian across his career, he averages 12.5 rebounds dating back to 2016. Since 2021 that number jumps to 13.8 across nine games, where he’s record 14+ in three of the last four against JV.
He’s paying $15 with some bookies for a 20+ rebound effort which is worth a dabble considering he just pulled in 21 against the Rockets.
SGM – Zion Williamson Under 24.5 Points / Nikola Jokic Over 12.5 Rebounds / Aaron Gordon Over 6.5 Rebounds = $5.50
Houston Rockets @ LA Clippers (2:40pm)
Incredible that they still haven’t moved this man’s PRA line. Alperen Sengun is the focal point of this Houston team that enter LA off a six-game win streak.
Sengun’s PRA average is 33.7 this season where he’s averaging 19.4 points per game – his points line still remains at just 16.5 against the Ivica Zubac match-up. Recording a PRA of 30+ in eight of nine games this season, I’ll once again back in the big fella to do some damage against this somewhat disorganised Clippers outift.
SGM – Alperen Sengun Over 16.5 Points / Ivica Zubac Under 9.5 Points / Rockets +5.5 = $5.25
Philadelphia 76ers @ Atlanta Hawks (11:40am)
Turns out Jalen Johnson can shoot the rock. The Atlanta Power Forward is going at 47% from deep this season and looks to be gaining confident in shooting the three-ball.
Johnson has averaged 1.8 triples per game from his last six appearances on his way to 16 points per game (also paying $2.53) while shooting the 3-ball at 55% during this stretch. The return of Trae Young will only help him in the pick and pop action where he knocked down 4 triples against the Knicks. Making 2+ in four of his last six, the $2.71 is a nice price.
SGM – Jalen Johnson Over 11.5 Points / Trae Young Over 9.5 Assists / Dejounte Murray Under 19.5 Points = $5.50
Saturday NBA Multi
Lakers / Suns / Magic / Knicks = $5.05
