August 1st NBA Betting Picks
Oklahoma City Thunder (-1.5) vs Utah Jazz (-110)
The Utah Jazz seemed lucky to escape their first game in the bubble with a win. After their narrow win against the New Orleans Pelicans, the Jazz will be looking to replicate a surprisingly balanced offensive attack. All five of the Jazz starters reached double figures against the Pelicans. Do not expect that to happen again today against the Oklahoma City Thunder. The Thunder are looking to start their bubble season with a big win in this rematch of the infamous never-played game from March 11th. The Thunder will need impactful performances from Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Steven Adams if they are going to pull out a win.
The Play – Oklahoma City Thunder (-1.5). 1 Unit to Win .91 Units.
Los Angeles Lakers (-3.5) vs Toronto Raptors (-110)
The Los Angeles Lakers, at times, looked to be shaking off some rust in their narrow 103-101 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers. The second quarter was of particular concern for the Lakers, as they managed to only score 19 points in the frame. However, the Laker’s team defense down the stretch seemed to be in playoff form. LeBron James was the catalyst defensively in the second half. He allowed only one point across 15 possessions in the half that found him guarding Paul George or Kawhi Leonard, according to a stat from Second Spectrum and shared by The Lakers Review. Look for the defense to continue to carry the Lakers against the Toronto Raptors tonight.
The Play – Los Angeles Lakers (-3.5). 1 Unit to Win .91 Units
Ben Simmons Points, Rebounds, and Assists Over 30.5 (-116)
If you are a believer in the Philadelphia 76ers chances to make a run in Eastern Conference then you would expect Ben Simmons to make a huge impact for the Sixers. The Sixers open up their bubble campaign against the Indiana Pacers. Simmons in the past has done more than enough to give you confidence in taking this bet. Stuffing the stat sheet would be nothing new for Simmons, seeing he has 28 career triple-doubles. His ability to hit this over will certainly help the Sixers get off on the right foot inside the NBA bubble.
The Play – Ben Simmons Pts+Rebs+Asts Over 30.5 (-116). 1 Unit to Win .86 Units
