It’s a small NBA slate tonight with Thursday Night Football stealing the viewership, but my hardcore NBA fans will be watching. We are crushing the NBA season so far! Hitting at a 62% rate and up 9.31U. On an even more positive note, I’m 7-1 in the month of December for +5.67U, so we are hitting our stride. Let’s take a look at tonight’s slate.

Lock in our NBA picks for tonight’s games.


Josh Hart (POR) Over 10.5 Rebounds + Assists (-113)

Line available at FanDuel Sportsbook at the time of publishing.

This line is one of my favorites of the NBA season. Hart has been filling up the R+A stat sheet all season and at its peak, you would find this at 12.5. I’ve hit it at 11.5 already this season and excited to see it down to 10.5. He’s one game back from an ankle injury, but still managed 32 min in his return. Portland is at home after a 3-day rest, giving Hart that much more time to recover. He’s had 3 games this season coming off 3+ days rest and averages 7.7 rebounds and 4.0 assists (11.5), putting us just over our number. Hart is hitting this line in 60% of home games this season and while Denver is a very good rebounding team, Hart hit this against Denver earlier in the season (11 rebounds 1 assist). 1U

Paul George (LAC) Over 32.5 PRA (-115)

Line available at Fanduel Sportsbook at the time of publishing.

Stop me if you’ve heard this before…Kawhi Leonard is out tonight. The Clippers are traveling to Miami to taking on the struggling Heat. Miami has dropped 3 of their last 4 and their last home game, but it did come off of a back-to-back. Jimmy Butler is questionable tonight, but I’m expecting him to miss another game. There is a 6-game sample size, but it’s worth mentioning, that the Clippers on the road without Kawhi Leonard are 4-2 this season and Paul George is averaging 25PPG in that span. Over the last 7 games, the Heat have given up the 4th most PPG to opposing SF’s. In that same 6 game road span, George is averaging nearly 12 R+A. His USG increases to 32.6 in that same span vs season average of 30.8. 1U from me.
