SGG Picks of the Day February 11

Nathan Hursh

Lu Dort OVER 2.5 Threes (+102 FD)
Over four games in February, Dort is averaging 3.8 made threes per game. Lately, he’s been chucking threes like it’s nobody’s business. This month, Dort averaged just under 10 threes attempted per game. Tonight, against the Sixers, I expect Dort to continue his three-point shooting barrage. For this over to hit, he just needs to make three of them. In terms of the +102 value, this is a nice bet.


Nikola Jokic OVER 1.5 Threes (+128 FD)
Over his past two games, the Joker has not made one single three. Not one. That said, when he does hit from deep, he hits them in clusters. In the ten games before this current two-game mini-slump from three, Jokic hit at least two threes in eight of them. Once again, I love the value of getting plus odds on this bet. This season, two straight games are the longest Jokic has gone without hitting at least one three. He will most definitely hit a three tonight. I’m confident though that he’ll make it two. 

Trae Young OVER 10.5 Assists (+110 FD)
We’re taking chances today, people. For our final bet of the day, we once again have plus odds. Young has been on an assist tear though as of late. In four of his last five games, Young has tallied at least 11 assists. The reason these odds are so juicy is that Young has averaged just 8.7 assists over his last ten games. I don’t care though. I will ride this recent wave. Against a bad Spurs team, buckets will be flowing for the Hawks. As long as Trae doesn’t go off himself and decide he wants to score 40 plus points, I believe he will be dishing it out all night. 

Bonus Same Game Parlay:
Lamelo Ball 2.5 threes (+112)
Lamelo Ball 20+ points (-220)
Miles Bridges 2+ threes (-148)
Hornet win margin 11+ (+165)

Total parlay: +804 (FD)
