3 PrizePicks NBA Props for Tuesday, March 28
We had a nice 2-1 night on Monday with our NBA player props. Javen Ivey easily went over his assists total, and Julius Randle stayed under his rebounding number quite comfortably. Our only loser was on Talen Horton-Tucker, who grabbed way more rebounds than we expected.
All of that being said, we’ll never complain about a 2-1 evening. Remember, we advise playing a full unit on the Flex Play and a half unit on the Power Play over at PrizePicks.
Let’s see if we can keep the positive vibes flowing with 3 PrizePicks NBA Props for Tuesday, March 28. Best of luck with all of your bets in the Association!
Kevin Love UNDER 1.5 Made 3-Pointers
Hasn’t Kevin Love been in the league for about 30 years by now? He’s actually in his 16th NBA season, which is a heck of an accomplishment. However, we’re fading Love in the 3-pointers department on Tuesday night.
For the season, Love is averaging 1.4 made three-pointers per game, which points slightly to the Under. The former UCLA Bruin has stayed under this total in 30 of his 56 games this year. Toronto also ranks 6th in points allowed, so the matchup won’t be that easy for Love tonight.
Jaren Jackson UNDER 1.5 Made 3-Pointers
Jackson is averaging exactly 1.5 made shots from downtown this season. So why are we taking the Under? The answer is simple. Jackson’s only shooting 27.3% from 3-point land over his last 5 games. That’s quite a bit less than his yearly average of 33.5%.
The former Michigan State Spartan does shoot the ball well, especially for a 6-11 center. However, we can’t ignore the poor current form or the fact that Orlando ranks 8th in 3-point defense. Jackson may not get many opportunities from beyond the arc in this game.
Jackson has played in 57 games so far this season. He’s hit one 3-pointer or less in 31 of those games. That’s enough for us to pull the trigger on the Under. Also, it doesn’t hurt that Caesars is pricing the Under at -143.
Fred VanVleet UNDER 21.5 Points
Well, we might as well make it 3 straight Unders to close out our Tuesday card. Fading a guy like VanVleet is hard to do, but he’s only averaging 19.8 points per game this season. We also like that the Heat rank 2nd in points allowed this season.
VanVleet has been on fire of late, so that’s a bit of a concern with this play. He’s averaging 25 points per game over his last 5 outings. However, we can’t ignore what the market is telling us. Six different sportsbooks are pricing this line at 20.5 instead of 21.5.
The former Wichita State star has played Miami 21 times in his career. He’s scored 21 or fewer points in 14 of those games. Let’s ride that trend with the Under!
