Ja Morant OVER 41.5 Points + Rebounds + Assists

Ja Morant has been on an absolute tear recently, as he’s averaging 35.0 points, 6.5 rebounds, and 5.5 assists per game over his last four games.

More importantly, those averages have come in wins against good teams for the most part, as they’ve taken down the Phoenix Suns, Los Angeles Lakers, San Antonio Spurs, and Brooklyn Nets.

That dunk Morant threw down had everyone around the basketball universe going crazy. That was special.

Expect his success to continue against the Cleveland Cavaliers, as he and the Memphis Grizzlies will almost certainly want to extend their winning streak, and going up against another great team will also bring out the best in Morant yet again.

Domantas Sabonis OVER 42.5 Points + Rebounds + Assists

Domantas Sabonis is coming off back-to-back performances, which saw him hit the over of this particular line, as he had 32 points, 13 rebounds, and seven assists his last time out against the Cavaliers.

With Caris LeVert now out of action and Malcolm Brogdon still out, the Pacers have had to run several more plays for Sabonis, as he can use his outstretched arms and soft touch to do some serious damage down in the post.

Sabonis is also a very effective mid-range shooter, but if he draws a double-team, he has the playmaking skills to get the ball to the right man at the right time.

Going up against a short-handed New York Knicks team, Sabonis should have plenty of opportunities to put up a monster statline.

LeBron James OVER 30.5 Points

LeBron James has been on absolute fire recently, averaging 30.4 points per game over his last 15 games.

He only scored 26 in the Los Angeles Lakers’ most recent win over the Minnesota Timberwolves, but before then, he had seven straight games of scoring at least 30 points.

James, who recently turned 37 years old, can get it going at any given moment, and the fact that 26 points is considered low for his standards just speaks to how great of a basketball player he still is.

Every game is important for the Lakers from here on out, so expect “The King” to show out.

BetPrep currently has the line at 30.5 with a -120 juice to the over.

Devin Booker OVER 26.5 Points

Devin Booker has put up 24 and 22 points in his last two games, respectively, but in going up against the New Orleans Pelicans, he should have an opportunity to get better looks and convert them at a higher rate than he’s been afforded in his last couple of games, as he’ll be facing one of the worst defenses in the league.

Booker is a multifaceted scorer in the sense that he can create his own shot at any given time in the mid-range and behind the arc. If he takes you off the dribble, he can either post you up and score or finish with his craftiness around the rim.

BetPrep currently has the line at 26.5 with a -113 juice to both the over and under.

De’Aaron Fox OVER 20.5 Points

De’Aaron Fox is coming off a 24 point performance his last time out. However, before that game, he was only averaging 12.5 points per game across four games.

Fox was much more aggressive his last time out, as he got to the free-throw line 15 times, making 14 of his attempts.

That indicates that he’s getting more comfortable in attacking the rim once again and looking for his own opportunities, and with the Sacramento Kings in the thick of the playoff race and competing with the Lakers for a spot, we could see Fox continue to be aggressive.

Expect to see Fox carry his momentum from his last game into this one.
