I think it’s time I throw my hat in the ring for betting tips. I’m starting with a clean slate, but I’m looking to finish Friday night 3-0 with the following three wages.
May 7 NBA Prop Bet Tips
Julius Randle, New York Knicks at Phoenix Suns
Over 38.5 Points + Assists + Rebounds (-120)
Wager: 1 unit (win would pay 1.83 units)
The Knicks and Julius Randle have been a delight to watch this season as they continue to exceed expectations. Randle struggled when the Knicks lost to the Suns a little over a week ago (18 points, 4 assists, 6 rebounds), but he won’t repeat that performance will repeat tonight.
In the last 10 games, Randle has dropped 30+ points six times. Randle will definitely be putting on a show tonight with the Knicks fighting tooth and nail for the 4 seed in the East.
Nikola Jokić, Denver Nuggets at Utah Jazz
Over 44.5 Points + Assists + Rebounds (-125)
Wager: 1 unit (win would pay 1.80 units)
This pick might seem steeper than the Randle pick, but it should be another day at the office for the MVP candidate. Even with Jamal Murray out, Nikola Jokić and the Nuggets haven’t missed a beat.
Since Murray’s injury, Jokić is averaging 26.6 points, 10.8 rebounds, and 8 assists, while the Nuggets are 13-4 in that time frame.
The Jazz are the best team in the league right now, but Jokić is too dominant to be stopped.
Zion Williamson, New Orleans Pelicans at Philadelphia 76ers
Over 28.5 Points (+100)
Wager: 1 unit (win would pay 2 units)
Zion Williamson is a certified bully on the court, plain and simple. Everyone knows this already, but it’s becoming more and more apparent as we get closer to the end of the season.
He is the main reason why the Pelicans are in the conversation for a play-in game. Zion is dropping 30 or more points more often than not, netting 11 30-point performances in his last 20 games. Zion very well could carry the Pelicans into the playoffs himself.
