JutPicks' best NBA player prop for Thursday: Backing Murray again
Pickswise was nice enough to give me the opportunity to write my plays up for you all. For those of you who don’t know me, they refer to me as JutPicks on Twitter. I post all my plays with brief write-ups every day. Now I get to write even more with no character limit!
I pride myself in being as transparent as they come. My NBA record from last season and this season are listed in my bio alongside with my MLB and NFL record. Without further ado, let’s dive into my favorite play for Thursday.
Dejounte Murray (Spurs) over 15.5 rebounds + assists (-120)
Line available at FanDuel at the time of publishing.
Yes, I am back on this. We unfortunately did not cash this on Tuesday due to a slow start against the Knicks and recorded 14 assists and rebounds. We are getting another solid matchup against the Denver Nuggets who allow the 6th most assists and 13th most rebounds to point guards.
Tonight, the Spurs will be without Keldon Johnson who averages over 6 boards and just under 2 assists per game. Murray is a prime candidate to make up that usage. The Nuggets are coming off a hard fought overtime win that resulted in all starters playing over 35 minutes. The Nuggets allow over 109 points per game on a second leg of a back-to-back and may have tired legs.
This is a great spot for our guy Murray to hit this line like he has in 8 of his last 10 games.
