New York Knicks vs. Washington Wizards
Friday, January 13, 2023 – 07:00 PM EST at Capital One Arena
Jalen Brunson (New York Knicks)
- Over 24.5 Points Scored
The New York Knicks come into this game with the Washington Wizards on a hot streak. They have won five of their last six games. The Knicks’ most recent game was a 119-113 victory over the Indiana Pacers. In the game, Jalen Brunson scored 34 points
Tonight the Knicks face the Wizards who are struggling with injuries right now. In spite of that, they were able to defeat the Chicago Bulls on Wednesday night. Still, being depleted without players such as Bradley Beal and Kristaps Porzingis will be a tough task for the Wizards.
Jalen Brunson has gone over this point total in each of his last four games. In the fifth game, he landed on 24, showing he is consistently putting up points every evening.
It is well known that New York Knicks coach Tom Thibodeau plays his starters heavy minutes and makes it tough for bench players to get minutes. Jalen Brunson has had 38 minutes or more points in his last five games.
Jalen Brunson has a nice matchup tonight against the depleted Wizards squad who struggle to defend on the perimeter. His quickness and ability to get to the rim will shine through. The Wizards will lack the defensive chops to keep him from putting up another big night.
NBA Prop Pick: Jalen Brunson Over 24.5 Points (-123) at Caesars Sportsbook
New Orleans Pelicans vs. Detroit Pistons
Friday, January 13, 2023 – 07:00 PM EST at Little Caesars Arena
CJ McCollum (New Orleans Pelicans)
- Over 26.5 Points Scored
After facing the NBA’s best team on Wednesday night, the Pelicans now face the team with the most losses in the league tonight, the Detroit Pistons. The Pelicans are on a slide, they have lost five of their last seven games. That coincides with injuries to key players Zion Williamson and Brandon Ingram.
With the Pelican stars out, CJ McCollum has absorbed the majority of the usage on offense. McCollum is now required to lead his team on the offensive end. McCollum did his part on Wednesday night against the Celtics, scoring 38 points.
The Pistons are not immune to the injury bug either. They are struggling in the front court, with Jalen Duren, and Isaiah Stewart missing their most recent game. The Pistons’ lack of depth makes it easier for opponents to get to the rim and score easy layups.
CJ McCollum averages 21.8 points per game this season. However, since Zion Williamson was hurt, he has put up point totals of 26, 28, 28, 34, and 38. See a trend here?
CJ McCollum continues to take more and more of the burden on the offensive end. He is coming through and his statistics have shown that. I expect CJ McCollum to have another big night against a Pistons team that struggles to play solid defense.
NBA Prop Pick: CJ McCollum Over 26.5 Points (-125) at Bet365
Golden State Warriors vs. San Antonio Spurs
Friday, January 13, 2023 – 07:30 PM EST at Alamodome
Stephen Curry (Golden State Warriors)
- Over 4.5 3-Pointers Made
The NBA plans to set an attendance record tonight when the Golden State Warriors will face the San Antonio Spurs and the Alamodome in Texas. They’re expecting more than 60,000 people tonight which will break the regular season attendance record.
Although the Spurs have not been good this season, the NBA expects their defending champions, the Golden State Warriors, to put on a show.
The Spurs come into this game struggling, having lost six of their last seven games. The Warriors are also on a losing streak, dropping their last three games. Both teams will be looking to get back on track tonight.
In Steph Curry’s first game back from injury, he shot 15 3-point attempts. With shot volume like that, it’s hard to imagine that a shooter such as Steph Curry not being able to go over this prop.
There might be a slight adjustment needed by Curry with the sight lines in the bigger arena. However, with volume like this, I expect Curry to get adjusted and for the threes to start pouring in.
NBA Prop Pick: Stephen Curry Over 4.5 3-Pointers Made (-110) at Bet365
