Great 3-1 Thursday for us let’s keep it rolling into the weekend!
Boston College / Syracuse Over (50.5)
Syracuse has scored 14 or less points in 4 straight games but they’ve gone through the ringer of playing Clemson, UNC, FLorida St, & Virginia Tech with the last 3 on the road
But prior to that stretch, Syracuse scored 29 vs Army, 35 vs Purdue, 48 vs W Michigan, & 65 vs Colgate.
Boston College comes in at 5-3 & 7 of those 8 games have gone over 50.5 but it’s worth noting 3 of them barely went over at 27-24.
I do think the offense will shine in this game and go over 50.5 because both teams have shown the ability to score as well as give up plenty of points to cover this number.
Steph Curry Points Over (29.5)
Steph has averaged 31 ppg this season and he’s had 2 of his biggest games on the road with 41 vs the Kings & 42 vs the Pelicans.
He went over 29.5 in all 3 games vs the Thunder last year with 34, 38, & 40.
The Thunder are in the bottom half of the league in 3 pointers allowed with 12.6 per game so Curry should be able to fire away against them tonight.
He made 24 threes in 3 games vs the Thunder last season. His threes made line is 4.5 tonight which also looks like a solid play.
Mavericks Over (111.5)
The Mavericks come in averaging 122.5 points per game this season so I know they are playing the Nuggets defensive minded team but this number seems too low.
It’s the first prime time “In season” tourney game on ESPN on a Friday night so you know the NBA wants this one to be entertaining.
Jokic is a game time decision but probable for the Nuggets with back pain. He’s not going to do much to stop the top scorers for the Mavs anyway but it could affect the rebounding game.
I like the Mavericks to compete in this game and go over 111.5 and this line has gone up from 109 this morning.
