Spencer Dinwiddie Over 16.5 Points (-115)
In an afternoon game, Spencer Dinwiddie and the Mavericks will face off against the Los Angeles Clippers. The Clippers are a dominant defense; I get that.
However, Dinwiddie has been remarkably consistent on the offensive end recently. He’s reached 17 points in his last five games and has earned 17 points in seven of his last ten games. He’s attempted 20 three-pointers in the last two games and has taken at least 12 shot attempts in each of his last five games. In all of January, he’s scored 18.4 points per game.
Grab Dinwiddie to get at least 17 points in today’s game.
Kyle Lowry Over 3.5 Assists (-175)
Kyle Lowry has earned 12.7 points per game this season. He’s been a solid scorer. But he’s also distributing the ball at a high rate, earning 5.5 assists per game.
We can get his assists at 3.5 in today’s game. Lowry has only played 22 minutes per night since returning from injury. That’s ultimately why his assist prop is a bit lower. But he’s added six assists in those 43 minutes since returning. He’ll only gradually see more playing time.
Lowry has hit four assists in seven of his last ten games. Even if he gets 25 minutes, with how he’s played all year, he should be able to get four and potentially more.
Jaren Jackson Jr. Under 1.5 Threes (-156)
There are a lot of players to feed in Memphis. They’re a talented group with a ton of incredible scorers.
Jaren Jackson Jr. is a large portion of this offense. But he’s had games where he rarely takes shots. In their last game against the Lakers, Jackson went 3-for-8 from the field and just 1-for-4 from downtown. He’s averaging 1.5 threes per game in January but taking just 3.6 attempts.
Over the last five games, Jackson has earned two threes in just one game. He’s also hit two threes in just 35% of his last 20 games. The volume isn’t there for Jackson. Again, so many players need their buckets. Jackson becomes the odd man out.
