Anthony Edwards - NBA Tips

Betseeker’s expert tipsters have you covered for the best NBA tips and predictions for every game of the NBA season.

One of the NBA’s rising stars will be hard to stop when he heads to New Orleans to take on the Pelicans.

Best Bet: Timberwolves @ Pelicans (12:10pm)

Anthony Edwards
12+ RA

Ant-Man has been everywhere lately thriving in the absence of KAT, and has produced some full stat lines.

Averaging 6.3 rebounds and 5.8 assists without Towns this season, this has escalated in his last five games averaging 7.8 rebounds and 7.2 assists, and with the Pelicans conceding assists to shooting guards 18% above average over the last month, we should expect another full stat in this one.

The RA of 12+ is the best bet, but the double-double paying $6 and triple-double at $44 should also worth small plays.

Next Best: Magic @ Pistons (11:10am)

Over 230
Total Points

Everything points to a high-scoring affair when the Pistons host the Magic, in what otherwise would be a far from enthralling contest between two of the NBA’s worst teams.

Seven of Detroit’s last eight home games have gone over the total points, conceding the most points per game of all teams on their home floor this season at 120.7 per game.

The Magic have been terrible on no rest this season with a 0-5 record, which makes the double market of Detroit into overs very tasty, but four of those five games off no rest have also gone overs. With five of the last six games between these two teams going overs, expect the total points closer to 240.

Value Bet: Bucks @ Bulls (12:10pm)

Nikola Vucevic
3+ Threes

Nikola Vucevic has found some form from deep for the Bulls, averaging 2 triples per game from his last 12 and making 3 triples in three of his last five games where he averages 20.6 points.

With the Bucks conceding threes to centres at 74% above average the last month, mainly due to Brook Lopez’s rim protection, Vucevic has a huge opportunity to get some looks from deep, and has done so historically against the Bucks with 13 threes in his last five games including four twice.

There are multiple plays in this game for the Bulls big man, covering his points line of 15.5 with 20+ points paying $2.37, while it’s worth taking two ($1.74), three ($3.90) and four ($9.80) three-pointers made.
