NBA Bets

NBA Prop Bet of the Day

Trae Young OVER 26.5 points versus Washington (-125, BetMGM

When it comes to the game of life, there are axioms we all follow. Always accelerate through a yellow light. Never wear socks with flip flops. Apply one condiment only (mustard) on a hot dog. In NBA betting, loading up on guards against the Wizards is another rule to live by. Washington’s propensity for shootouts breathes oxygen into opponents’ over bets. On the season, Russell Westbrook and Co. rank No. 20 in adjusted defensive efficiency, surrendering an appreciable 1.098 points per possession. Taking it a step further, according to the FTN Daily advanced DvP tool, they’re the single best matchup for a scorer, an obvious Young attribute. Setting nets ablaze in two prior matchups against the Wiz — he racked 41 points and 36 points against them Jan. 26 and May 10, respectively — he should again brandish sharp talons en route to a 30-plus point performance.
