Domantas Sabonis OVER 36.5 Points + Rebounds + Assists

Domantas Sabonis just missed hitting the over in this category last night in the Indiana Pacers’ loss to the Milwaukee Bucks.

However, in the four games prior to last night, Sabonis has been absolutely crushing the over in the points, rebounds, and assists category – as he was named Eastern Conference Player of the Week. During that stretch, he averaged 26.3 points, 10.5 rebounds and 4.5 assists per game.

Points and rebounds alone could probably get him over this line, as he’ll be going up against a terrible Detroit Pistons team that’ll offer him almost no resistance. Any assist he dishes out would be a nice added bonus, however.

BetPrep has the line at 35.5 with a -116 juice to the over.

Joel Embiid Over 24.5 Points

Joel Embiid had just 17 points last night against the Miami Heat, as he was bothered by Dewayne Dedmon. He only shot 3-of-10 when guarded by Dedmon, as Dedmon knew exactly the right buttons to push to get him out of rhythm.

However, in going up against the Brooklyn Nets, Embiid won’t face as much resistance, as a sizable amount of their roster is in the health and safety protocols, and they have trouble guarding big men as it is.

Embiid should be able to establish his position in the low block the best way he knows how and that alone should get him to hit the over in this one.

Chris Paul OVER 16.5 Points

The Phoenix Suns are absolutely rolling, winning eight of their last 10 and just a half-game behind the Golden State Warriors for the best record in the league.

Chris Paul is a huge reason why the Suns are where they are, as he’s coming off a 24 point performance against the Portland Trail Blazers on Tuesday night.

CP3 is as effective as they come when it comes to scoring the ball. He can get to his spot in the mid-range, get to the rim or let it fly from three.

It’s worth noting that Paul has hit the over of this particular line just twice in his last seven games, but the Washington Wizards are coming in as one of the coldest teams in the league, so expect Paul to be able to find his spots and hit the over in this one.
