Tyrese Haliburton to Score 25+ Points (+390)

There’s not much the Indiana Pacers fans can look forward to this season as their team tries to tank their way into one of the top two spots in next seasons draft by losing as many games as possible. The one thing they can count on though is consistent production from their point guard Tyrese Haliburton who is averaging 22.6 points per game while shooting 50% from the field and over 41% from downtown. He also knocks down his free-throws at a 92% rate, so if the Wizards decide to play him tight he will punish them from the line. He had 26 points in the game played against Washington a little over a week ago which was the 2nd time in 3 games against them that he went over 20 points.

After a pair of sub-par scoring games at Chicago and Philadelphia, I think it’s time for Haliburton to get back to scoring 25+ a game and the Wizards are the ideal opponent for that to happen.

Picks on the side and total are also available for Indiana Pacers vs Washington Wizards

Kristaps Porzingis Over 1.5 Made Threes (-136)

I’ve been impressed with Kristaps Porzingis this season, especially with the chemistry he is developing with his new teammates. After struggling to fit in with Luka Doncic and the Mavericks, Porzingis is slowly integrating himself into the Wizards offense and is becoming a key piece for their early success this season. He is averaging almost 17 points per game and is making 2.3 threes a night on almost 41% shooting. After making just 1 three in the first game of the season vs Indiana he has followed it up with 3 straight games of at least 2 threes while shooting 50% in 2 of those games. Indiana is really struggling defending the three-point line, they rank dead last in the NBA allowing 45.8% shots made from distance. On the road it’s even worse at almost 48%, so you can count on Porzingis and co. to take advantage of that in tonight’s match-up.

Friday’s NBA Mega Parlay is priced at +1046 odds!

Bradley Beal to Score 20+ Points (-270)

Beal’s scoring numbers are actually down a bit from last season, but that might not necessarily be a bad thing for the Wizards who have won 3 of 4 games this season. He is getting a lot more help this time around with Kyle Kuzma averaging 21 and 3 more teammates averaging double-figures. As a result his efficiency has been through the roof in these 4 games played so far. From the field he is shooting almost 59% and is making 8.3 shots per game on just 14 attempts. His free-throws are also falling at a fairly consistent 85% rate and against a team that’s struggling to defend the perimeter he is bound to also improve on his three-point efficiency as well. In head-to-head meetings against Indiana, he has gone over 2 in 7 straight meetings averaging 31.8 points per game and in one of those games he exploded for 50 points last season in May. I expect him to get to 20 points with ease tonight.
