Atlanta Hawks -3.5
@ $1.92 (Sportsbet)
Despite a bad loss to the Clippers, the Hawks are looking like a real threat in the East. Atlanta are deep, play hard, shoot the ball well, have multiple creators, rim protectors and compete defensively. They really should’ve won the last game to make it 9 wins a row for Nate McMillan. The Kings are in limbo as we enter the trade deadline, they have several players who have been heavily rumoured to be on the move. NBA players are humans, we’ve witnessed first-hand many bets go south as a result of guys underperforming due to so much uncertainty with their situation. The Hawks look to have found a group of guys that can perform strongly against quality opponents, at home or on the road. Roll with Atlanta to come out and take care of business today.
Luka Doncic Triple Double
@ $3.50 (Sportsbet)
Dallas are fresh off murdering the Blazers in Portland, winning by 40. Doncic was scoring the ball at will, going 8/9 from 3PT range alone, on his way to 37 points in 30mins. It was an important Western Conference battle, so his playmaking took a backseat. We think Luka will look to find his teammates more against a TWolves team that struggle to defend the 3 ball. They are bottom 5 in the league for both opponents 3PT percentage (38.4%) & opponents assists per game (26.2). Expect Doncic to have a field day passing the ball and enjoy him stuffing the stat sheet on his way to getting triple double number 10 for the season.
Zach LaVine 5+ threes
@ $5.50 (Sportsbet)
LaVine has cemented himself as an elite scorer in the league this season. He shoots 44% from 3PT range, attempting 8 per game. Zach has hit at least 5 threes 8 times this season, with 6 of them coming at home in the United Centre. The Bulls are at home to Cavs who are 3rd worst in the league for opponents 3PT % as they let teams shoot 39% against them. Everything is in line for him to cash in from deep today. The All-Star has such an effortless stroke, that getting to 5 threes’ is not difficult at all. Back him in to get this one done.
