NBA Prop Bets 4/16/2022
D’Angelo Russell over 19.5 points (-105 DK)
Russell is one of the streakiest scorers in the NBA, but he has been hot as of late and his recent performances against the Grizzlies are hard to ignore. In the play-in game, Russell dropped 29 points on 10/18 shooting against a very good Clippers D and he has gone over this line in 3 of his last 4 games. His splits against the Grizzlies are also insane! In 4 games this season, DLo scored 37-29-28-30 and even last season in 2 games, he scored 22-25 points. KAT is going to have a tough matchup down low against Jaren Jackson and Steven Adams, which should leave Edwards and Russell with more favorable matchups on the perimeter. The other factor to look at here is the expected game script – this matchup has BY FAR the highest total on the board of any of the 1st round matchups at 237! Both these teams want to get out in transition and run, ranking #1 and #3 in pace of play this season. Recent scoring success, great splits in this matchup and a sky high total all sets up for an over here for DLo. If you want to get wild, consider Russell to be the highest scorer in the series at +5000 on FD!
