Kings PF Marvin Bagley
The Pick: Under 16.5 points (-115)
Bagley is a gifted scorer, but this line is too high. He’s been limited in both games since returning from an extended injury absence, playing 20 minutes or less in each contest. He’s scored 15 points or fewer in those games despite shooting 55.6% from the field. There’s definitely some value in the under as long as he’s seeing limited minutes.
I’ve bet the over on Bagley a lot this season — and he’s rewarded me more times than not — but scoring at least 17 points in only 20 minutes is a difficult ask for anyone. I like the under up to -130.
Magic PG D.J. Augustin
The Pick: Over 5.5 assists (-106)
Augustin has seen a nice spike in playing time recently given the injury to Isaiah Briscoe. He played at least 31.4 minutes in back-to-back games prior to seeing just 25.8 minutes in a blowout win in his last game. Augustin has handed out at least six assists in each of his past three contests, so this line seems low given his current role with the Magic.
He also has an elite matchup vs. the Atlanta Hawks. They’ve played at the fastest pace in the league this season, and the Magic’s implied team total of 116.75 represents a massive increase when compared to their season average of 105.8.
This is my favorite prop of the day, and I’d be willing to play it up to -140. If you’re feeling frisky, you can also take a look at the over on Augstin’s scoring prop of 12.5 points (-102).
Nets PG Spencer Dinwiddie
The Pick: Over 3.5 assists (-120)
Dinwiddie has handed out just two assists in each of his past three games, which is creating some value with the over on his assist prop on today’s slate. He’s averaged 4.9 assists in 28.1 minutes per game this season and is projected for 29.4 minutes on today’s slate.
He’s also in a strong spot vs. the Los Angeles Clippers, who have played at the ninth fastest pace this season. There’s no reason he shouldn’t be able to improve upon his poor recent results moving forward.
This is an excellent spot to buy low on Diwniddie, and I like the over up to -135.
