Brad Evans' NBA bet of the day (May 26)

NBA Bets



Always itching for action, Brad Evans scours the ‘books for a seducing wager whether NFL, NBA, MLB, Chinese ping pong, whatever. Come back daily to see where he’s blowing his bankroll. Fade or follow? That, of course, is entirely up to you. 

NBA Prop Bet of the Day

Trae Young OVER 25.5 points vs. New York (-114, DraftKings

At this rate, I may need to somehow woo a multi-billion-dollar recent divorcee to replenish funds lost. Hey, Melinda Gates, hit me up on OKCupid. All logic suggests Young, who not only silenced a raucous Tracy Morgan-led Garden crowd with a game-winning floater, is an easily defensible over wager, but this -EV bettor’s curse is real. In two out of three games against New York this season, including his heart-stopping Game 1 performance, Young has cruised past the proposed total. However, the Knicks, largely stout defensively, ranked No. 3 in adjusted defensive efficiency during the regular season and No. 9 versus scorers over their last 15 games. Still, the volume — he jacked 23 shots in the series opener — should side with the former Boomer Sooner.
