Denver Nuggets at Indiana Pacers
Nikola Jokic Over 48.5 Points + Rebounds + Assists (-120)
This is quickly becoming one of my favorite props on the market.
With only a few more games left in the regular season, Jokic is now neck-and-neck with Joel Embiid to win the MVP, and he is even the favorite according to some books. Since the All-Star break, Jokic is averaging 27.2 points, 12.8 rebounds, and 8.3 assists per game on 59.9% shooting from the field.
Jokic has also gone over this number in three of his last four, and during that stretch, the Joker is averaging 29.8 points, 12.8 rebounds, and 7.8 assists on a blistering 70.2% shooting from the field.
Tonight, he will go up against an Indiana team that has all but physically thrown in the towel this season. On the season, the Pacers' defense is ranked 25th in scoring, 15th in assists, 27th in effective shooting percentage, and 26th in shooting efficiency. While Indiana is only allowing 50.4 rebounds per game, they are incredibly banged-up as a team, and this feels like a time where Jokic is going to turn it up to 11, especially with his second consecutive MVP on the line.
Phoenix Suns at Golden State Warriors
Devin Booker Over 28.5 Points (-102)
The MVP is a two-man race between Jokic and Embiid, but Booker has been making a hell of a case for himself. Over his last six games, Booker is averaging 34.5 points on 57.6% shooting from the field, and 41.2% shooting from deep. While he is not attempting as many threes lately, his scoring numbers continue to rise as he has been excellent at attacking the paint down the stretch.
Booker has also gone over this number in two straight games, and four of his last six. Even in the games that he did not go over this number, he is averaging 28 points per game.
While Golden State has one of the top defenses in the NBA, Booker scored 35 against the 76ers in his last game and 49 against the Nuggets in the game before that. Those two teams are not better defensively than the Warriors, but what Booker did to them is nothing short of incredible. Booker has not been good against the Warriors this season, but he is playing on another level right now, and although Steph Curry is out, this game is going to be a battle, and Booker should get his number called a lot tonight.
Dallas Mavericks at Cleveland Cavaliers
Darius Garland Over 32.5 Points + Assists (-120)
The Cavs have been dealing with a lot of injuries since the All-Star break, and they are in danger of falling below the sixth seed in the East. However, none of that is the fault of Garland, who continues to amaze every single night.
On the season, Garland is averaging 21.5 points and 8.6 assists per game on 46.3% shooting from the field. Those numbers would obviously leave us under the number, but Garland has been playing like the best player in the NBA for damn-near a month now. In March, Garland is averaging 25.8 points and 10.9 assists per game on 42.6% shooting from the field. He has gone over this number in six of his last eight, and during those eight games, Garland is dishing out 11.3 dimes per night.
This is such a massive game for the Cavs, and it seems like Garland always shines when they need him the most. Dallas does have a really solid defense, but over their last six games, the Mavericks are giving up 109 points per game.
