Monday was our first losing article of the season, going 1-2, and dropping the overall record to 10-5. I’ll probably get to some props closer to when games actually tip, but I do have four sides that I like on Wednesday’s card in the NBA.
Follow along on Twitter for what we hope to be another great season, as some plays jump out late due to news, particularly in the player prop market — @julianedlow. Here’s what jumps out to me on DraftKings Sportsbook.
The Knicks are … kind of good? As you’d imagine, New York is yet to be favored this season, but has been playing terrific basketball the last five games. The Knicks are on a 4-1 ATS run, also winning those four games outright as dogs of 13 points vs. MIL, 3.5 vs. CLE, 9.5 vs. IND and 7.0 vs. ATL. Three very impressive wins. Meanwhile, Utah’s had some tough showings this year, including just last night in Brooklyn — a 34-point loss to a shorthanded Nets team as 4.5-point favorites. The Jazz are just 3-4 ATS on the young season, and have played down to their competition on multiple occasions — losing to the Timberwolves and nearly losing to the Thunder.
