Miles McBride | NBA Underdog Fantasy Pick Today

McBride’s court time has been limited, with just nine and 11 minutes in his last two games. What’s concerning is not just the brevity of his appearances but also his impact during those brief stints. With plus/minus ratings of -13 and -17 in those games, McBride has struggled to find his rhythm.

Conversely, Donte DiVincenzo has seen a resurgence in his playing time, logging significant minutes once again. Despite Mitchell Robinson’s absence potentially opening up opportunities for unconventional lineup configurations involving DiVincenzo, Jalen Brunson and McBride playing at the same time, it’s more likely that Tom Thibodeau will lean heavily on Isaiah Hartenstein. This could relegate McBride to the sidelines for the third consecutive game.

With Precious Achiuwa likely to absorb the backup minutes, McBride is on the periphery of the rotation. He may end up being the odd one out for a third straight game.

Andrew Nembhard | Underdog NBA Pick

Nembhard is playing well in the postseason and clearing this number often, but his percentages are ridiculous right now. His usage rate is just 14%, but he is scoring thanks to ridiculous 58% shooting from the field and 46% from beyond the arc. That is going to regress at some point, and Nembhard’s playing time in Game 1 was only 29 minutes.

Furthermore, OddsShopper’s tools show that traditional sportsbooks seem to be heavily juicing the lower side of this play, indicating they also believe Nembhard is due for some regression.
