Kawhi Leonard - NBA Tips

Kawhi is putting together one hell of a season and gets a nice look against the Hawks.

Best Bet

Golden State Warriors @ Brooklyn Nets (11:40am)

Brandin Podziemski
Over 23.5 PRA

With Wiggins out for the Warriors, I expect BPod to continue to see high minutes in this Golden State rotation.

The Warriors Rookie hasn’t necessarily been producing big points totals, but his rebounding and assist numbers have been a real highlight in Steve Kerr’s system, and the coach has repaid the faith.

From the 12 games BPod has played 30+ minutes this season, his PRA average sits at 26.75 per game, and in his last eight games with at least 30 minutes that PRA average jumps to 28.7 covering that line in six of those games.

SGM – Bridges Over 23.5 Points / Dinwiddie Under 11.5 Points / Podziemski over 6.5 Rebounds = $5.25


Next Best

LA Clippers @ Atlanta Hawks (11:40am)

Kawhi Leonard
Over 27.5 Points

The season Kawhi Leonard is putting together has gone under the radar a bit, and with Paul George’s availability uncertain when they face the Hawks off no rest we could see a big game from the Klaw.

Averaging 26.3 points from his last 24 games, Leonard has led the way in LA’s recent road stretch scoring 25+ in all five road games including 30+ on three occasions.

In the three games Kawhi has played without PG this season he averages 29.3 points and against this Atlanta team that cough up scores for fun, I expect Klaw to cover this – with or without PG.

SGM – Leonard Over 27.5 Points / Leonard 6+ Rebounds / Murray Under 22.5 Points = $4.50


Value Bet

LA Lakers @ Charlotte Hornets (11:10am)

Brandon Miller
25+ Points

Steve Clifford has lost Terry Rozier, LaMelo Ball is injured again (shock horror), so he has no choice but to give the keys to the kid, and Brandon Miller has shown plenty with the opportunity that’s been presented to him.

In Miller’s last four games without both Rozier and LaMelo, he’s averaged 28.3 points per game from 21 attempts. Clifford is playing Miller bulk minutes even in blowouts and doesn’t really have much choice otherwise due to the Hornets literally having nothing else on their roster.

The Lakers really should smoke Charlotte off no rest, but with Miller coming off a 35 point outing against the Pacers I see no reason why he won’t cover his line again and going for another 25+ points.

SGM – Lakers -10.5 / Miller Over 22.5 Points / Russell 15+ Points = $4.50
