Seth Curry UNDER 16.5 points

Best Available Number: -110 at Draftkings

Seth went off in his Brooklyn Nets debut, scoring 23 points on only 18 shots. This was the most points he has scored over his last 10 games. However, this scoring outburst was against a weak Kings defense that allows the 3rd most points per game.

Tonight, Curry faces the Knicks, who are the 8th best in the league in opponent points per game. I believe Curry will come back down to earth tonight in the Garden. This should be a classic case of regression to the mean so I'll take the Under!

Tyrese Haliburton OVER 1.5 steals

Best Available Number: -105 at Caesars

Since joining the Pacers, Haliburton has averaged 2.7 steals per game. He seems to be embracing the expanded role on his new team and his stat lines are benefiting. Tonight, he faces the Wizards, who allow 7.4 steals per game, which is the 10th highest in the NBA.

I expect Haliburton to be as active as he always is on defense. There's no reason he can't get 2-3 steals tonight against Washington.

Klay Thompson OVER 2.5 Made 3s

Best Available Number: +130 at BetMGM

Klay is averaging 3 made threes per game over his last 10 games. He had 2 games in which he made only 1 or no threes during this stretch. His following games resulted in 3 and 7 made threes.

In his last game against the Clippers, Thompson was just 1 of 5 from deep. However, tonight Thompson faces the Nuggets who give up the 9th most threes per game at 11.7. This sure looks like an easy Over!

Devin Booker UNDER 1.5 Turnovers

Best Available Number: +145 at Draftkings

Booker has only gone over 1 turnover in 5 of his last 10 games. One of those games was against Minnesota, who is leading the league in forcing turnovers at 16.5 per game.

The Suns are 15-point favorites tonight and, as always, this could lead to limited playing time and fewer chances for turnovers. I like the plus money we get on this one and look for a blowout come the 3rd quarter.

Stephen Curry Leading Scorer of Game

Best Available Number: +145 at Draftkings

Steph has been on fire of late, as he's averaging 30ppg over his last 3 games. In his last meeting with the Nuggets, he led all scorers with 23 points, which was one more than Joker’s 22.

Curry's splits are better at home than on the road, which gives me a bit more confidence in him tonight. Let’s root for Steph to continue his hot scoring and get us this W of the plus money variety.
