Anthony Davis

6 games on the slate but our fate lands in the hands of a man with one eyebrow. Do us proud, AD!

Best Bet

Milwaukee Bucks @ Miami Heat (12:10pm)

Giannis Antetokounmpo
30+ Points

The Greek Freak is absolutely flying at the minute, clearing this line in 8 of his last 11 games in which he sees at least 30 minutes of action. Whilst the Bucks are starting this game a 8 point favourites, we know that The Heat has given them a lot of trouble of late, so this game should remain close.

The Bucks are on the back end of a road back-to-back, but Giannis should be quite well-rested after not being required to log more than 30 minutes in each of his last 3 games (due to blowouts).

Giannis personally loves the match-up against the Heat, going for 38, 33, and 33 points in the 3 most recent outings. Bam is a sensational defender, but Giannis size and athleticism has always posed a problem for the Heat undersized C.

SGM – Heat +8.5 Handicap / Crowder 2+ Threes / Giannis 30+ Points = $6.50

Next Best

Detroit Pistons @ LA Lakers (12:40pm)

Anthony Davis
Over 40.5 PRA

AD can be a bit of a yo-yo, but he comes into this favourable matchup against Detroit averaging 24.7 Points, 12.1 Rebounds, and 3.9 Assists on the season. I particularly like including assists here, as since the turn of the year, Davis is averaging just about 5 dimes, yet the books have only added 4 to his PR market.

Davis, like most, also loves playing Detroit. Over the past 3 contests, he hasn’t scored less than 28 points nor brought in less than 15 rebounds. He even has a 7 assist game in there as well.

SGM – Davis 4+ Assists / LeBron 20+ Points / Duren 10+ Rebounds = $3.25

Value Bet

Detroit Pistons @ LA Lakers (12:40pm)

Anthony Davis
6+ Assists

I usually try to steer clear of doing two markets from the same game, let alone by the same player, but when I was doing the research for the Davis PRA market, this stood out like dogs balls!

$5.10 is some juicy odds for a market that has hit in 5 of the past 10 games that Davis and LeBron have both played. Davis’ assist numbers have climbed all season, moving from 3.3 per game in December, to 4.6 in Jan, and are currently sitting at 6.3 in the 4 games he has played so far in Feb.

Based on his recent play, this market should probably be more like a flip of a coin, so don’t mind me while I launch at $5.10 odds for a coin flip.

Keep an eye out in the morning for the alt-assist line, as Davis has cleared 5+ assists in 9 of his past 13.
