ThriveFantasy 2-12-20 NBA Prop Bets Picks


Before I begin I want to say, hopefully, this will be the first of many articles I will be publishing for the Fantasy Six Pack family. I am honored and ready to help everyone win money and lots of it!

“Money, money money”! That’s the name of the game! We try to make as much money as possible using my Six Picks for tonight’s game. We do Prop Bets on ThriveFantasy and our goal is to find those pesky good steals.

The way this works is each player has a projected stat for tonight. The ThriveFantasy App asks you if you think the play will go OVER or UNDER the projected stat. You get to pick from 20 players and you have to pick 10 players.

It even gives you the courtesy of two “ICE” players, in case one of your guys are a late scratch.

Simple. If you bet correctly, you win money! It’s that easy!

So, let’s get to it and dive into this monster eleven-game slate!

Locks of the night

Derrick Rose, Detroit Pistons: Projected 19.5 total points – OVER

D-Rose (hip) will be available to play in tonight’s game against the Orlando Magic. He is averaging a very solid 32 fantasy points per game. The Magic aren’t that great defensively and i really believe Markelle Fultz will have a hard time keeping up with D-Rose. To make my case for Rose tonight even stronger, since January, he is averaging 21.5 points per game, 5.8 assists, and 3.2 rebounds, while playing 30 minutes.

Khris Middleton, Milwaukee Bucks: Projected 12.5 Rebounds AND Assist – OVER

Middleton has been on fire this season. He is averaging 37.3 fantasy points per game. Averaging 6.2 rebounds per game, and 4.3 assists per game. To make him a lock, Bucks start Giannis Antetokounmpo is ruled out tonight. Last game, he put up an eye-popping stat line of 28 points, 11 rebounds and eight assists. Aw, yeah! Music to our ears! The Bucks offense will run right through Middleton all night, and the Indiana Pacers will certainly struggle to try to contain him!

Andrew Wiggins, Golden State Warriors: Projected 28.5 TOTAL fantasy points – OVER

Wiggins has been averaging about 38 fantasy points over his last few games. Tonight the matchup can’t get any better for him to keep it rolling. He is averaging 22.4 points per game, 5.1 rebounds, and 3.7 assists per game. The Pheonix Suns are not good. I am expecting him to continue to feast against a pretty bad Suns defense tonight in what should be a high scoring game.

Pascal Siakam, Toronto Raptors: Projected 36.5 TOTAL fantasy points – OVER

Siakam is a stud, plain and simple. He is averaging 42.3 fantasy points per game. That’s good for 23.7 points per game, 7.5 rebounds per game. He is coming off a monster game where he dropped 34 points, six rebounds, and five assists. AND, he gets the Brooklyn Nets tonight. Let’s just leave it at that, shall we? Just lock him in!

Victor Oladipo, Indiana Pacers: Projected 18.5 POINTS and ASSISTS – OVER

Oladipos minutes have been on a steady rise since returning on January 29th. He is becoming much more smooth on the court and his fantasy performances have been getting better and better. He is averaging 18.8 fantasy points a game. 10.8 points per game and 1.8 rebounds. The matchup with Bucks doesn’t look that enticing from a fantasy standpoint. However, the over/under for tonight is 22.5! This means it’s going to be a high scoring game. To top that off, Oladipo was inserted into the starting lineup to regain confidence! This call is borderline for me, but I think he just about makes it tonight.

Stay Away

Jamal Murray, Denver Nuggets: Projected 4.5 assists – UNDER

Murray is in a bad spot here. First of all, he is only averaging 4.6 assists on the year. Secondly, he is facing arguably the best team in the NBA in the Los Angeles Lakers. If we look at his stat line from this year, he is more of a score-first point guard and that will really hurt him in this spot. Yes, he has a few games with 6 assists, but that’s his highest total of the year! I am avoiding him on this prop bet at all costs!
