In his second year as a Cavalier Kevin Love continues to struggle finding the right fit next to two ball dominant stars. From being a 25/15 guy in Minnesota his scoring is down to 15.9ppg, his lowest total since 2009-10. Our projection has Love coming in under his 16.5 line and he is 18-8 on the season when projected under. We think he is a solid play today.
We are HUGE Spurs fans here at Player Line Pro not just from a basketball perspective but also betting wise. Outside of LaMarcus Aldridge the rest of the Spurs have been unders cash cows. This is a product both of their exceptional depth and that they have had a heap of blowouts allowing for their stars to rest. Todays best bet is Tony Parker at under 15.0. Guarded by Patrick Beverley, Parker has only averaged 6.3ppg in three games against the Rockets this year.
Bob Cov was a bright spot in the dark season last year for the Sixers, but this season he has struggled to find the same form after an injury interrupted preseason. The Sixers still suck and Covington has been hit and miss, our guess is that against the Wizards he will be a miss. Under 13.5 for us.
The first time all star has been the cornerstone for the Celtics offence ever since his move from Phoenix. In the midst of a career year Thomas is averaging 21.6ppg, a remarkable feat given his 5’9″ frame. He has however struggled with long defenders throughout his career and Milwaukee has a ton of them. Combine that with reports of a sore wrist this week and our statistical modelling projecting a mid teens return, we are betting on under his line of 21.5.
After a slow start RoLo has played well for the Knicks bringing a little more offence to the table than was expected. In fact of his last 17 lines 13 have gone over. Our modelling has him for an over against Raptors, and so far we are 8-0 this season when Lopez has projected over.
