Best Bets

Alex Barutha: I had time to put in some extra research today, so I’ve got more bets than usual that I like. I’ll keep the write-ups relatively brief but provide the main information that made me lean in a certain direction. To avoid things getting too clunky, I’m not specifying which sportsbook the odds are from, but you should be able to find them on nearly any site you typically use.

  • Dejounte Murray over 1.5 steals (+155) at Washington
    • Wizards have the second-highest TOV% over the past month

Fred VanVleet over 20.5 points at Clippers (-104)

FanDuel, 1:45pm ET

Ken Crites: For the season, the Clippers have been good at guarding point guards.  They rank 7th in the Association, giving up 23.4 points per game to PGs.  But that has changed since they put Russell Westbrook in as a starter.  Over the past three games, the Clippers gave up 25 points to Tyus Jones(!), 33 to De’Aaron Fox and 34 to Jordan Poole.  FVV has been extremely streaky this season, with both ugly streaks and hot waves.  He’s currently on a two-game hot streak with 21 points at Denver and 25 points at Washington. I’m hoping the good times continue to roll in LA versus Westbrook.  But, frankly, I’m in a slump and down to 21-18 on the season, so feel free to fade.

Clint Capela double-double versus the Wizards (+116)

Caesars Sportsbook- 3 p.m.
Michael Gillow: Capela has recorded a double-double in each of his last four games and is averaging 12.1 points and 11.3 rebounds on the season. Considering the Wizards rank 11th in the NBA with 44.0 rebounds per game, getting plus odds on Capela’s double-double is just too good to pass up.
