PICKS OF THE DAY MARCH 11

Nathan Hursh

Al Horford o1.5 Threes (+136 FD)
Horford has been a big part of the Celtics’ recent success. After looking washed for much of the season, he has anchored himself nicely in Boston’s frontcourt. More importantly for bettors, Horford has been hitting his threes as of late. In four straight games, the big man has hit at least two threes. In his past nine games, he’s made two threes seven times. Tonight against the lowly Pistons, he will have a nice opportunity to make two more.

MGM NBA Offer

LaMelo Ball o31.5 Pts+Reb+Ast (-111 FD)

Ball has been a bit up and down lately, I will admit that. That said, 31.5 seems like a low and easy total for him to hit in terms of points, rebounds, and assists. Over his last five games, Ball has scored at least 20 points in three of them. In one of the games he didn’t score 20, he only played eight minutes. If he can score around 20 points tonight, plus add his usual six or seven assists, LaMelo will clear the 31.5 stat threshold easily. This is what I expect.

Washington Wizards +4.5 (-114 FD)
I am fairly sure that most of the betting world is aware of this right now. But the Lakers STINK. They just lost to the Rockets a few nights ago. They have lost nine out of their last 11. It took a Lebron 56 point miracle to beat Golden State last Saturday and that was the last time they won. Westbrook has been a disaster. AD can’t stay on the court. Lebron isn’t getting any younger. This team has been in trouble for a while. Tonight they play the Wizards who are 4-6 in their last 10. Washington isn’t exactly good, but they aren’t the Lakers. I’ll take them to cover.
