Welcome to Bales’ Bananas – Monkey Knife Fight NBA Prop Picks 3/6! Below I will discuss my NBA favorite plays for tonight’s slate!
More or Less 2/2 – Indiana Pacers/Chicago Bulls
The Indiana Pacers are dealing with a plethora of injuries tonight. Jeremy Lamb has been ruled out, Malcolm Brogdon is doubtful, and Victor Oladipo, Doug McDermott, and JaKarr Sampson are all questionable. Furthermore, T.J. Warren is questionable, as well. He has seen plenty of ups and downs this season, but he’s averaging 21.0 points in 34.5 minutes per game over the last 10 days. This is a matchup based play, though. Warren gets a matchup against the Chicago Bulls, who rank 15th in the NBA in pace and 12th in defensive rating. Through 3 matchups, he’s averaging 22.7 points per game against Chicago. He has found tremendous success, and could see similar results with Indiana dealing with injuries tonight.
Coby White’s total is set far too low. He’s averaging 25.5 points on 20.0 shot attempts, 8.3 three-point attempts, and 2.3 free throws in 32.0 minutes per game over the last 10 days. White has scored 19+ points in each of his last 6 games. His usage rating has been sitting around 30%, and he’ll continue to be the focal point of the offense with Zach LaVine injured. White gets a tough matchup against Indiana, who ranks 25th in the NBA in pace and seventh in defensive rating. While the matchup is far from ideal, White has easily exceeded this number on a consistent basis, and tonight should be no different.
Play 1 unit on T.J. Warren OVER 20.5 points and Coby White OVER 17.5 points to win 3 units (3x)
