According to props.cash, has only eclipsed this market number in 22 of 59 games played overall this season. However, he has a much better hit-rate to the over at home, eclipsing this market number in 15 of 32 contests, including seven of his last nine games at Ball Arena. In that span, Jokic has never recorded fewer than 12 rebounds. This afternoon, he gets an incredibly favorable matchup against the Brooklyn Nets, which rank 27th in rebound percentage and 29th in opponent rebounds per game across the last month. Expect Jokic to get the job done for us in this spot.
Per CourtIQ, is averaging 31.7 points per 36 minutes of action this season when both Darius Garland and are off of the floor. In nine games played without Garland in the lineup this year, Mitchell has scored 32 points or more eight times, including tough matchups against the Boston Celtics (41 points), New York Knicks (38 points), and Miami Heat (42 points). The Charlotte Hornets have been playing better defense of late, but Mitchell’s volume is likely to help him get to the over in this spot, regardless. Since Mitchell joined the Cleveland Cavaliers, he has attempted at least 19 shots in eight of his nine games played without Garland. Trust him to have high volume again on Sunday, and to knock down some shots – take the over.
In his last three games, has played no fewer than 29 minutes and attempted no fewer than eight shot attempts. On Sunday, is likely to be out of the lineup once again with a foot injury, forcing Grimes into an expanded role. This season, Grimes is averaging 7.9 field goal attempts per game – 5.3 of which are coming from beyond-the-arc. Today, bettors can grab Grimes in a favorable matchup against the Los Angeles Lakers. Since February 12, Los Angeles is allowing the most three-point attempts of any team in the league. Expect him to deliver for us this evening.
