NBA "Prize Picks" & Player Props for Saturday!
QUICK NEWS & NOTES:
The plays below are players that I like that have popped out on the NBA CheatSheet for the lines that are released or lines that I think will be favorable. As you know, NBA changes rapidly so when we do our 4:30 pm update there could be an entire new chunk of plays that look solid. It's always something to monitor. These are also not "Plays" of the NBA cheatsheet.

LET'S LOOK AT SOME PLAYER BREAKDOWNS + MORE PICKS TO WATCH FOR!
JAMES HARDEN - One of my favorite legs in my same game parlays is Harden Points + Assists. Dishing off to Joel Embiid is an easy path for him to rack up AST and look at these numbers over recent games! Even if he has a down game watch him going forward as that is a staple play with a high hit rate.
MALAKI BRANHAM - One of my favorite points picks as of late with 23, 23 and 18 points over the last 3 games he lines feels too low at 15.5 on Prize Picks. UPDATE: Keldon Johnson downgraded to Q so like Branham even more if Keldon is out.
LAMELO BALL - His P+R+A stats have been on fire with 50+ 3 games in a row I'm glad to take a shot on his 39.5 number even in the tough matchup vs. Miami.
KCP - Look at those blocks & steals! If you are playing his "Fantasy Score" those are huge on Prize Picks as they are worth +3 each if I remember correctly and he had 5 combined blocks and steals last game so that's 15 prize pick fantasy score points before adding anything else. Pretty sick! I went over 10.5 early this am as he has been over this in 3 of the last 4 games and playing 30+ minutes right now.
P.J. WASHINGTON - No line right now but love his points number as he has 20+ in 4 straight games and his prop is usually well under this!
GORDON HAYWARD - He caught fire going into the break with 21, 26 and 16 points and then he came out of the break and dropped 27/13 last night. Matchup is tough but really curious what his lines are set at today and someone I want to keep an eye on.
Will BAM BAM go BOOM BOOM? He's put together some great games but he is a little all over the place. His matchup is worth taking a look as you can see in the screen shot below CHA allows the 25th most points, 27th most points in the paint and 30th in rebounds allowed so everything lines up for him, but can you stomach the variance???
TYRESE HALIBURTON - Love his points + assists line as he is on fire over the last 3 games putting up a combo of 36, 24 and 42. His floor tends to sit around that 23-25 rangle just shy of the number but he has the ability to get WAY OVER and over quick.
BENNEDICT MATHURIN - I've been hitting his points props when I can get them and he has really taken off over these last 5 games putting up 19, 14, 21, 16 and 22. Curious to see what his line looks like tonight but it's not out as of now. Included this screen shot from the NBA cheatsheet of his recent game logs to help your decision!
DESMOND BANE - He is someone I will use in same game parlays because he has been racking up the points with 25, 24, 18, 20, 17, 26 and 25 over his last 7 games but can't use him on PrizePicks as that 21.5 line is too tight for me!
HIGHLIGHT FROM 2 NIGHTS AGO!
Personally, I don't use projections and they are generally incorrect on a daily basis but man there are some days they are just FIRE! Night before last we had this happen > Fantasy Alarm dropped a 24-4, Fantasy Pros dropped an 18-4 and Roto went 24-9. Typically projections are only about 50% but was impressive when I rolled that over on my results research!
