MGM’s Best Wednesday Promo Code & Bonuses (Jan. 15): NBA Boosted Odds
There are three NBA prop boosters offered today by MGM:
LeBron James to Record a Triple-Double
Boosted from +190 to +220
Triple-doubles are usually hard to come by, but we’re talking about LeBron here.
James comes into tonight’s game with the fifth-most triple-doubles in NBA history (90 total). “The King” is currently averaging 25.5 PPG, 10.7 APG and 7.8 RPG. Our models projected LeBron to score 27.8 points tonight, pull in 8.9 rebounds, and dish out 11.3 assists … before Anthony Davis got ruled out. You can expect those numbers to increase.
Another thing to point out is that the last time LeBron’s Lakers matched up against the Magic, he in fact recorded a triple-double with 25 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists.
Ben Simmons to Score 20+ Points and Record 10+ Assists
Boosted from +350 to +400
Simmons comes into this game averaging 15.2 PPG and 8.4 APG. Over the last ten games, partly due to the Joel Embiid injury, those numbers increase to 17.7 PPG and 8.8 APG.
For what its worth, our models have him projected to score 17.4 points and to dish out in 10.3 assists. With Embiid out yet again, and the Sixers on a losing streak, the Sixers will need everything they can get from Simmons tonight.
James Harden to Score 40+ points and Record 10+ assists
Boosted from +600 to +800
Since the odds listed are high, this might seem like a tough parlay to cash, but let’s break it down.
Harden currently leads the NBA in scoring with 37.8 PPG. He also averages 7.5 assists and 6.2 rebounds per game. What makes this booster interesting is that Harden has scored at least 40 points, sixteen times this season!
Our models project Harden to come close to his scoring mark tonight (37.6 points). The over/under for the Rockets’ game against the Blazers is the highest on the board, so you know we have the potential to see a bunch of points. (And, as a reminder, this boost pays out at 8-1 odds!)
