NBA Multi bet of the Weekend| February 02

A big day of NBA action kicks off the weekend in Australia, with ten games set to take place across the course of our Saturday. There is plenty of value to be found in those games, and our weekend multi kicks off with a line bet before focusing in on a couple of player props which look to be good spots. 

Phoenix Suns @ Atlanta Hawks

Saturday 3rd February, 11:40am AEDT, State Farm Arena 

It’s no great surprise that with all three of Kevin Durant, Devin Booker and Bradley Beal having now shared the floor for a few weeks without interruption, the Suns are beginning to look like the kind of team many expected them to be after trading for Beal in the off-season. A victory in early January against the Lakers kickstarted a run of form, and inclusive of that game they have won nine of their last 11 games to fly up the Western Conference standings into sixth place. Most of those wins have been in impressive fashion, too; their last two have been by 16 against the Nets and 13 against the Heat, and six of the nine wins in the aforementioned run of form have been by double digits. NBA betting sites have adjusted to their form a little, but not quite enough, and the line set for their game against the Hawks looks too low. Atlanta continues to be a relatively uninspiring team; they have won their last two including a good win against the Lakers in their last outing, but prior to that they lost four games in the trot. They’re not much better on their home floor than away, either – at State Farm Arena they are 10-13 for the season, while their road record sits at 10-14. The Suns, meanwhile, actually have a better record on the road than at home, so don’t expect the trip to Atlanta to bother them too much. They’re a far better team wherever this game is being played, and should be able to comfortably cover the line of 3.5 points set for this game. 

Golden State Warriors @ Memphis Grizzlies

Saturday 3rd February, 12:10pm AEDT, FedExForum 

Jonathan Kuminga has been a new player over the past few games, and though betting agencies are very slowly adjusting to that, they still haven’t quite adapted enough to his current burst of form. Seven games ago he put in one of the better performances of his career, going 9-12 from the field and 4-4 from long range to score 24 points in as many minutes, and he hasn’t looked back since. Coach Steve Kerr has finally rewarded him with as many minutes, and he is repaying the favour in a big way. Inclusive of that aforementioned game against the Bulls he has scored at least 20 points in every game while playing at least 29 minutes, averaging over 25 points per game in that time. His over/under points total, however, is still set at just 20.5. That’s a number he has now covered in six of his last seven games, with the solitary miss coming when, as mentioned, he scored right on 20. No longer is this just a good run of form – Kuminga has become a genuinely important scorer to the Warriors and there is nothing to suggest that he is not capable of maintaining the 20+ points he is currently scoring per night. What’s more, the Warriors are also coming up against a decimated Grizzlies outfit. Despite their incredible run of injuries the Grizzlies are still managing to remain a competitive team, but they’re far from world beaters. Jonathan Kuminga should be able to comfortably make his way through the 20.5 point total set for him for this game. 

Charlotte Hornets @ Oklahoma City Thunder

Saturday 3rd February, 12.10pm AEDT, Paycom Center 

Chet Holmgren is a big man. Standing at 7’1” and with a 7’6” wingspan, he can outreach virtually everyone on the floor relatively comfortably, which invariably bodes pretty well for rebounding. He hasn’t by any means been dominant in that regard in his impressive young career to date, averaging 7.6 per game a little over halfway through his first season, but he appears to be making a concerted effort to up those numbers of late. In his past six games he has had double figure rebounds on four occasions, averaging 10.7 in that time. His over/under rebounding total, however, remains at around his season average, with better than even money odds for him to have over 8.5 boards. I’m going to sneak a little above that to bring some value into our weekend multi, with the nearly $3 on offer for him to have ten rebounds looking particularly juicy. The main concern in this one might be the prospect of the Hornets being blown out by the Thunder and Holmgren not having to play a full game as a result, but if that does happen then he will likely have had more rebounding opportunities in the time that he will have spent on the floor. Regardless, having notched up this number in four of his last six – a couple of times in limited minutes – and the odds suggesting he’s closer to a one in three chance, this looks like a great way to boost the odds of our multi.
