Jarrett Allen over 9.5 rebounds (-128) vs. GSW – BetMGM (12:57 PM CT)
The Cavaliers are on the second night of a back-to-back, but I think Allen can still have a great game. The Warriors are tied for the worst-rebounding team in the NBA (47.8 opponent rebounds), and Allen thrives on the glass. Since the start of March, he's averaged 10.3 boards, and he has seven games this season where he's racked up at least 15 rebounds.
Cavaliers vs. Warriors under 224.5 points (-109) – DraftKings (12:30 PM CT)
These are literally the two worst teams in the league when it comes to hitting the over on the second night of a back-to-back. They're a combined 17-7 in favor of the under, and the Warriors are 7-0 toward the under on the second game of a back-to-back on the road. Obviously, Curry is on fire, and the Warriors almost threw up 150 last night, but both of these teams have been surprisingly solid defenses of late.
Deandre Ayton to post a double-double (-167) vs. SAC – DraftKings
The Kings are terrible and won't have Richaun Holmes tonight, so that means a lot of Hassan Whiteside and more Damian Jones than you'd like. Ayton has been somewhat disappointing on the whole, but he's been much better of late, putting up five double-doubles in his last six games.
Celtics (vs. LAL) and Warriors (vs. CLE) both to win (-103) - DraftKings (12:51 PM CT)
Going back to the well after Wednesday's favorites-heavy parlay hit. Considering the tear Stephen Curry has been on, I'm not sure how the anemic defense of Collin Sexton and Darius Garland is really going to slow his roll. Back-to-back games for GS, plus the travel, certainly make me a bit hesitant, but I don't see a way in which the Warriors lose unless Curry has a dramatically off night. I feel even more confident regarding the Celtics, especially with LeBron James (ankle) and Anthony Davis (calf) still out of commission.
