NBA PrizePicks Today – Miles Bridges!

Miles Bridges Less Than So Many Things

Starting our Monday off on the right foot, we’re eyeing a bet that feels pretty solid: Miles Bridges to notch less than 35.5 points, rebounds, and assists combined as they square off against the Pistons in Detroit at 7:00 PM. The crux of this line hinges on Bridges’ hefty playing time, often hitting the 38 or 39-minute mark every game.

However, there’s a chance for an advantage here. If the game turns into a blowout, or if his team decides to dial back his minutes slightly to save him from the season’s wear and tear—maybe dropping to 36 minutes—this plays into our hands.

Interestingly, Bridges has missed hitting this number in two of his last five games. This track record gives us a bit of confidence going into this bet. Betting against someone like Miles Bridges might not be everyone’s first instinct given his role and contributions on the court, but considering the potential for reduced playing time or an off night,

it seems like a prudent choice for our Monday bet. Plus, I get the feeling many of you would join in on rooting against his PRA reaching 35.5 just this once.

Olynyk The Failure?

Today’s top pick for me is betting on Kelly Olynyk to fall short of 25.5 combined points, rebounds, and assists as the Raptors head to Denver for a 9 PM tip-off. This game isn’t just any game; it’s one where the Raptors face the challenges of elevation and one of the strongest teams in basketball, with Nikola Jokic waiting on the opposite side.

With Jacob Poeltl sidelined, Olynyk is seeing increased minutes, stepping in as the starting center. I’m projecting him for 28 minutes in this matchup, but taking on Jokic and the Nuggets is a tall order. This situation, paired with the Raptors being significant underdogs by a 13-point spread and missing Scottie Barnes, puts Toronto in a tough spot.

Denver is expected to manage this game easily, and it’s hard to see Olynyk excelling in such a challenging matchup. Denver has plenty of options defensively to counter Olynyk if needed, further complicating his path to surpassing the 25.5 PRA threshold.
