Brad Evans’ NBA bet of the day (May 3)

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. 

Lonzo Ball OVER 5.5 rebounds vs. New Orleans (-125, PointsBet

Known more for his court vision and dishing wizardry, elder Ball has come on strong, stacking stats in other key categories. Earning at least 31 minutes in each of his last five games, he’s scored 16 or more points four times while grabbing nine or more boards in four straight contests. Overshadowed by Zion Williamson and Brandon Ingram, the former Bruin has undoubtedly roared, living up to the hype that made him the No. 2 overall pick in the 2017 draft. Prodigious numbers should again adorn the box score for the pointman. Golden State, fighting for its playoff life, is more pyrite in specific defensive areas, rebounding especially. No team has allowed a higher defensive rebounding percentage on the season. Unraveling even more of late, they’ve yielded an 87.2% mark in the category in their last three. Also No. 25 in opponent offensive rebounding and No. 28 in opponent total raw rebounds, the Warriors should prove wimpy against Ball’s sudden willingness for snatching boards.
