Tim Duncan under 8.5 | Player Line Pro

Tim Duncan under 8.5

By | Daily tip | No Comments

Tim Duncan is not only the greatest power forward of all time but also a huge favourite around the Player Line Pro office. Once a powerhouse on both ends of the floor Duncan’s main contribution these days is to anchor the lead leading San Antonio Spurs defence. In the blockbuster matchup against the Golden State Warriors he be going head to head with one of, if not the best, defensive big men in the league in Andrew Bogut. In addition the Warriors most productive lineups have played Draymond Green at the 5, which is a terrible matchup for Duncan and…

CJ McCollum over 18.5

By | Daily tip | No Comments

With four of Portland’s starters departing in the offseason, CJ McCollum was primed for greater opportunity, and while he had previously flashed potential few anticipated the borderline all-star campaign he has produced. He has been one of the leading candidates for most improved players and it has been his consistency that has shone through in particular. In this matchup against the ever injured New Orleans Pelicans, McCollum should have plenty of opportunities as there are no even remotely decent backcourt defenders on their active roster. In three games this year against the Pelicans McCollum has averaged 24ppg and our projection…

Nicolas Batum under 16.5 | Player Line Pro

Nicolas Batum under 16.5

By | Daily tip | No Comments

Frenchman Nicolas Batum has been a terrific pickup by the Charlotte, acting often as the main facilitator while Kemba Walker gets his shots up. He’s rebounded from a tough year last season posting career highs in scoring and assists and making a significant contribution to the success of the Hornets. His increased usage however, has come at a cost, with his fg% and 3pt% the second worse marks of his career. The most outstanding number for Batum this year though has been the disparity between his performance at home and on the road. He’s been better at home throughout his…

Chris Paul under 22.0 | Player Line Pro

Chris paul under 22.0

By | Daily tip | No Comments

Chris Paul has stepped it up significantly in the absence of Blake Griffin, averaging 24.5ppg since the all star break and pretty much carrying the Clippers night in night out. He has busted us a bunch of times however we like Paul on the under against the Rockets for a number of reasons, with the main being that it is the second night of a back to back. In the second game of back to backs this year Paul has averaged only 14.8ppg, a huge 5ppg lower than his average. In addition he will be guarded by one of the…

Tony Parker under 11.5 | Player Line Pro

Tony Parker under 11.5

By | Daily tip | No Comments

For so long a stalwart in the Spurs machine, Tony Parker has taken a huge step backwards in terms of workload with the emergence of Kawhi Leonard and the arrival of LaMarcus Aldridge. While he has maintained his trademark efficiency, Parkers scoring, minutes and usage rate are all the lowest since his rookie campaign. His importance to the Spurs remains unquestioned, however our projection has him going under in the tough match up against Chris Paul. He’s 8-2 when projected under this season and we expect that trend to continue.

Andre Drummond under 16.5 | Player Line Pro

Andre Drummond under 16.5

By | Daily tip | No Comments

Andre Drummond started off the season in record breaking fashion, averaging more rebounds than anyone since Dennis Rodman. In the new year both his scoring and rebounding dipped slightly as the grind of the season began to set in. A first time all star this year, Drummond is the franchise cornerstone that Stan Van Gundy is building the Pistons around, and with good reason seeing as he is only 22 years old. Having said all that Dre has struggled on the road, and against the Wizards this season hasn’t performed well. Our projection has him under, and when projected under…

Robin Lopez over 12.0 | Player Line Pro

Robin Lopez over 12.0

By | Daily tip | No Comments

Robin Lopez has been an overs star for us all season and we haven’t seen any sign of him slowing up, especially against a Lakers front court that couldn’t guard a chair. A native of the Los Angeles area, RoLo has always performed well at Staples Centre, and our projection has him going over again. Lopez is 12-2 when projected to go over this season and thats as good a record as you are likely to see so we are pretty confident.

PJ Tucker under 7.5 | Player Line Pro

PJ Tucker under 7.5

By | Daily tip | No Comments

Not known as a scorer throughout his career, virtually all his offence comes from corner threes, PJ Tucker doesn’t blow us away. On the road Tuckers scoring average is almost 44% worse than at home while shooting almost 10% worse from the field. Add to it that in three games against the mighty Warriors this season he has scored 9 points total. Not per game, but in three games combined! He is 7-0 when projected under on away games, so with all that combined, theres reason to be confident.

Jae Crowder - over 15.0 | Player Line Pro

Jae Crowder over 15.0

By | Daily tip | No Comments

Jae’s back! Our overs cash cow Crowder has a super favourable matchup against James Harden and his defence averse Rockets. Houston has been pretty much the worst team defending wing players all season with 2’s and 3’s scoring at almost 20% higher their average over the course. Add that to the fact that Crowder comes in averaging 17.2ppg since the all star break, and is an incredible 14-1 when projected over, why would you look elsewhere.

Devin Booker - over 17.0 | Player Line Pro

Devin Booker over 17.0

By | Daily tip | No Comments

Despite looking like he’s 13 years old Devin Booker is a flat out stud. He’s a personal favourite in the Player Line Pro office and looks like a star of the future. He has been showcasing the full arsenal when it comes to scoring the basketball in the Month of March averaging 24.0ppg and earning high praise from the likes of Kobe Bryant and Dwyane Wade. Booker is getting all the minutes he can handle and as the focal point of the Suns offence and in what likely will be a high scoring game against the Nuggets, he should beat…
