Seth Curry (BKN) Over 1.5 3PM/Paul George (LAC) Over 5.5 Rebounds
Playoff basketball is one of the most exciting times for sports bettors across the country, but it's also important to recognize lines are as sharp as they’ll be all season long. While I love both of these spots as straight bets, I think there is a bit more value with this combo. While playing with Durant and Irving, Seth has 2+ 3PM in 11/12 games, hitting this number with consistency. When he played 35+ minutes, he went 4/8. 7/11, and 2/7. With rotations tight, I have Curry projected for over 35 minutes and between 7-9 3PA.
Paul George has played the Timberwolves 3 times this year, grabbing 9, 10, and 6 rebounds. During the playoffs last year, George grabbed 6+ rebounds in 17 of 19 games and I’m projecting a similar outcome again this year. George has always been active on the boards, and considering he's likely gonna play upwards of 38 minutes, I’m a big fan of this bet.
Caris LeVert (CLE) Over 24.5 Points
Earlier today someone asked me how the Cavaliers could win this game, and to be honest, I’m really not sure. What I do know is that guys like Caris Levert, Lauri Markannen, and Kevin Love are gonna need to take some of the scoring load off of Garland if they're gonna have a chance here. LeVert has played the Nets three times since departing, scoring 19, 36, and 16 points. LeVert has never been the most efficient shooter in the world, but with attention being focused on Garland, he should have plenty of opportunity to make his mark on this game.
Paul George (LAC) Over 6.5 1Q Points/Clippers ML
You could play George by himself at -140, but I really do think the Clippers are the better team here. In his first game since returning from Injury George had 0 points but since then he's scored 14, 10, 12, and 7 in the first. In those games he didn't play the full 12 once, but since it's playoff time, I’m expecting a full 12 minute rotation in the first. The Timberwolves has been solid against opposing #1 scorers, but I’m expecting George to start strong here.
