SGG PICKS OF THE DAY, JAN. 28

Nathan Hursh

Jayson Tatum OVER 38.5 Pts+Reb+Ast (-115 FD)
Over the past week or so, Tatum has been on fire. Over his last three games, he is averaging 38 points per. If Tatum can score in the 28-30 range tonight against a Hawks team that doesn’t love to play defense, the remaining rebounds and assists needed will be cake. If three games are too much of a small sample, consider this. Over his past 10 games, Tatum is averaging just over 27 points, eight rebounds, and four assists. Add those three numbers up and you get 39. 39 is all we need. I like the over.

MGM NBA Offer

Nikola Jokic OVER 1.5 Threes (+108 FD)
On the season, Jokic is averaging just over 1.5 threes per game. However, over his past six contests, the big man has hit at least two triples in five of them. I will say though, in the 13 games before his current six-game three-point barrage, Jokic hit two threes just once. Tonight, I believe Jokic will keep popping those threes. In general, Jokic has been white-hot as of late in all aspects of his game, three-pointers included. I love the value of getting plus odds on this bet. The three-point magic may run out at some point. I do not think that that will be tonight.

Giannis Antetokounmpo OVER 42.5 Pts+Reb+Ast (-113 FD)
Tonight on ESPN, Giannis and the Bucks look to take down the Knicks in Milwaukee. I believe Giannis will show up on primetime television. Over his last ten games, he’s averaging over 30 points, over 10 rebounds, and six assists. On the season alone, he is averaging over 42.5 points, rebounds, and assists. In their last game, the Bucks were a bit embarrassed, losing to the Cavaliers by 16 points. In the press conference, Giannis took a bite out of a chicken wing and said, “We suck. We played bad.” That will not happen tonight. Giannis will obliterate this over.
