NBA Bets

NBA Prop Bet of the Day

Julius Randle OVER 26.5 points vs. Atlanta (-120, William Hill

Though very much a rarity, some bets cash with sweat-free ease. For example, Damian Lillard’s 7.5 assists over nearly hit in the first quarter Saturday. The gambling gods displayed unusual kindness. Sunday night, a torturous wrath is sure to rain down, but Randle’s proposed points line seems off. Yes, in his final 10 games he climbed over the hump five times. However, in two regular season contests against the Hawks he hammered the total with a pair of 40-point torrents. Atlanta, which wrapped the regular season No. 21 in adjusted defensive efficiency, isn’t exactly pugilistic in the paint, or anywhere for that matter. According to the FTN Daily Advanced DvP tool, the Hawks are the fourth-best matchup for a scorer. Similar to his prior showings, Randle should get rowdy in the box score in Game 1.
