Trae Young OVER 28.5 Points

Trae Young is coming off a 34 point performance his last time out, shooting 13-of-20 from the field.

In his last five games, Young is averaging 30.4 points per game on nearly 53 percent shooting.

Ice Trae can just beat you in so many different ways with his ability to shoot from anywhere and use his crafty dribbling to get to the rim or use his floater in the mid-range. Simply put, he’s unstoppable!

Young has hit the over of this particular line 24 times this season. In going up against the San Antonio Spurs, Young has a real good shot of getting the over in this one.

Jayson Tatum UNDER 28.5 Points

Jayson Tatum hasn’t been playing up to his standards as a scorer recently, as he’s averaging just 19.4 points on 43.2 percent shooting over his last five games.

Tatum is one of the game’s most gifted scorers in the league today, with his ability to knock down the three, get to the rim and bully smaller defenders on post up opportunities.

Tatum is known to be a streaky scorer, though, and while he is capable of breaking through at any given moment, it appears that he doesn’t have the momentum trending in the right direction for him to hit the over of this particular line.

Nikola Jokic OVER 24.5 Points

Nikola Jokic is coming off a 21 point performance his last time out, as he shot 8-of-14 from the field.

However, in the game prior to that one, he dropped 27 points on an extremely efficient 12-of-15 shooting.

Jokic isn’t just a scorer out there, as he’s embraced being the playmaker in the post and attracting a lot of attention down there with his unstoppable abilities to score, thus opening up other opportunities for his teammates.

With the Boston Celtics having smaller defenders to throw Jokic’s way, Jokic should be able to hit the over in this one.

Jokic has hit the over of this particular line 28 times this season.

Jaylen Brown OVER 25.5 Points

Jaylen Brown is coming off a 22 point performance his last time out but did it on 9-of-12 shooting from the field.

Brown had his struggles shooting the ball recently, but his last game proved that he’s rediscovering his touch and can go off for a big scoring performance when he needs to.

In going up against the Denver Nuggets, the Celtics will need some scoring to overcome the play of Jokic, and Brown should be a fairly safe bet to be able to handle that load.

Expect him to hit the over of this line and look to be aggressive in finding his shots in the mid-range and close to the rim.

Dejounte Murray UNDER 21.5 Points

Dejounte Murray is a first-time All-Star, which is a feel-good story around the league. However, in recent games, he hasn’t been scoring the ball extremely well, as he’s been more of a playmaker by racking up assists.

Murray also doesn’t have much of a three-pointer to rely on when he’s having trouble getting to the rim or locating his spots in the mid-range.

Murray is capable of hitting the over of this line on any given night, but his last couple of games suggests that right now, he is much more focused on being a tablesetter than a scorer.
