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 my MLB and NFL record. Without further ado, let’s dive into my favorite plays for Friday.

Kyle Lowry (MIA) under 2.5 three’s (-115)

Line available at DraftKings SportsBook at time of publishing.

The former Raptor legend has taken a passive approach to start the playoffs. His field goal attempts are down and he is top 20 in assists in the playoffs. Lowry averages 6 3-point attempts per game but is down to 4.8 against the Atlanta Hawks this season.

Jimmy Butler was dominant last game and scored 45 points. I expect Butler and Tyler Herro to continue to carry the scoring load. Lowry is the perfect piece for this Miami Heat team. He runs the offense extremally efficient and plays tough defense on the opponents best guards’. Lowry knows his role is to not score a ton of points and feed guys like Bam Adebayo and sharp-shooters Max Struss and Duncan Robinson.

Lowry is under this line in 66% of games this season and has failed to hit 3 3-pointers in 5 straight games. I expect Lowry to look for his teammates to do most of the scoring and lead them in other ways to a 3-0 series lead.

Brandon Ingram (NOP) over 11.5 rebounds and assists (-125)

Line available at DraftKings SportsBook at time of publishing.

Ingram has shown that he is a true superstar in this league. He recorded a near triple-double in the New Orleans Pelicans’ Game 2 win.

Devin Booker will be out for most likely the rest of the series and it seems that the Pelicans may have a chance to upset the #1 seed. It all starts will Ingram’s playmaking ability and being the point-guard that New Orleans is missing. Ingram is averaging 15 potential assist opportunities in the first 2 games and is working well with veterans Cj McCollum and Jonas Valanciunas.

Ingram reeled down 11 rebounds in game 2 and should continue to stuff the stat-sheet with long rebounds as long as the Phoenix Suns continue to shoot high volume from behind the arc.

I expect another 35+ mins from the Pelicans’ best player and for Ingram to lead them to a home victory.
