NBA Prop Bets 03/4/2022
Darius Garland over 20.5 points (+100 DK)
Garland has been dealing with a back injury for the last few weeks, missing several games, but that has not slowed down his scoring ability one bit! Garland has cleared this line in 5 straight and dropped 33 vs the Hornets on Wednesday, in his first game in 2 weeks, playing 32 minutes and attempting 22 shots. The Cavs have been in a bit of a slump, losing 5 of their last 6, so we expect them to rely heavily on Garland to keep scoring as much as possible. The 76ers have some good individual defenders on their roster (Thybulle, Embiid) and have decent metrics overall this season, but the addition of James Harden to the lineup has meant one thing – POINTS! More points scored on offense and more points allowed on defense. In 3 games since Harden made his Sixers debut, all 3 games have gone over the total. RJ Barrett is a pretty good comp for Garland, in terms of scoring ability and Barrett was able to put up 24 and 30 point nights on the Sixers back to back, easily clearing his point total in each game. We like Garland to have similar success tonight against the Sixers.
