FanDuel has the Simmons triple double at +3900.
Fan Duel tip - if you build your own triple double you can sometimes get better prices. The Simmons triple double builds to +6100 if you do a single game parlay with 10+ points, 10+ rebounds, 10+ assists.

To give you an idea of how ridiculous this is being priced….if you play this for his 82 games (obv he’s not playing 82 but stay w me here) he has to have ONE triple double to almost break even. Two and you’re a winner. As bad as he was last year….in 42 games he had 2 triple doubles.

Couple issues with tonight’s flier.

1. When Cavs don’t miss, there are no rebounds to collect.

2. When the Nets only miss there are no assists to accumulate.

We’re on to Cincinnati.

Figure the Bucks may pack it in if the game gets out of hand. No Dame again. Got the TT under 111.5

A few day games the next few days, so keep those on the radar. DK already has the Saturday games posted.

@HomeRunBaker any plays tonight? There’s a few teams on B2Bs playing so might look for some live spots. I did play some over Bucks points in the first half with the thought they have been embarrassed lately and are likely to make a strong start against the Junior Varsity Hornets.

Nothing for me tonight.

Bucks first half hit.

taking under Celtics/Wiz 244.5. Heading into the 4th I’d expect the pace to slow, Celtics to do enough to keep this from a foul fest.

Yeah, they never actually tried on defense. 2nd game in a row where they’ll win despite it. Probably worth keeping an eye on as these had been fairly easy prints before.

rather lose by 20 than 2 :)

Simmons on a minutes limit tonight. PSA so you all don’t make the same mistake I already did….

Let's give a few SB thoughts here...fun fact in NJ I genuinely can't bet at any of these books because of my job. So if I can't get these picks down at these prices, and I mean AT THESE PRICES, who better than SoSH to benefit?

-Total Turnovers u2.5, -110 at DK, under D/ST props, then turnovers.
-Mike Danna over 2.5 T+A, even money, also at DK
-Deebo Samuel, o55.5 receiving yards, -125 at pointsbet/Fanatics
-SF spread -1.5, -105 at ESPN/Penn
-Mahomes u4.5 rushes (carries), -105 at ESPN/Penn

To chime in on SB there could be correlated parlays available at some of the square legal sites. I have no idea if prices are adjusted or these are even available but something like San Fran -1.5 & Under Pacheco rushes as KC will likely be throwing more…..or some wacky adj line of KC -9.5 & Pacheco Over rushes.

I’m talking out of my ass but something worth looking for I’d imagine.

I cannot for the life of me find the total turnovers prop. Maybe it got pulled?

I really really like the 9ers in the first half. Think Pats-Falcons SB. Shanahan will be scripted and 9ers will score twice. I think the 9er D comes out strong, takes away Kelce, and holds them in 1H.

You nailed it. Any read on where we go from here?

Feel like Reid and Mahomes can’t be held down forever.

Sorry, took 9ers 2H at +3 and +168. Perhaps a bit of confirmation bias, but this game feels like it should be way out of hand and KC is such a bad 2H team.

No worries I ended up taking KC ML the play before the muffed punt so got decent plus odds.

I’ll take Mahomes over Purdy going into the 4th. We’ll see how it plays out.

Buddy of mine from NJ who is part of a group betting syndicate sent me this early today when I was half asleep. I completely forgot about it and it was +350. Sigh

Two overnights for tomorrow:

* Orlando +2.5
* Detroit +11.5 (I got 12 earlier but good to 10.5)
Lakers down to 10 some places and Wolves to 7.5 so getting some market edge here. Magic now getting 3 and I’ll copy my response to a DM regarding this game.


The Magic are clicking won 5 of 6 and are a very good home team. They’ve had 2 days off now w B2B home games prior to break. I think they approach these next two nights very businesslike esp w tonight being national game.

Thunder have shown some wear recently. They’ve traveled following 5 straight games (I think 5), got whipped by 40 then had their focused bounce back game. I don’t think a road game following that focus game is a good spot for them to be favored in a tough arena for anyone to win in.

Someone of the player pt totals for today (i know) seem low. Are we not expecting Paolo, Mathurin, etc to play minutes enough to get to 10 points?

Edit: looks like the game is some shorter pickup 20 minute bullshit. Makes sense now.

This Dunk Contest has a little something for everyone!

Are you a Jaylen fan, believe in this being “the Celtics year” and him the only star in this contest playing a factor? +450 is for you!

Want some crazy ass length and the “where did this guy come from?”affect? Jacob Toppin is your guy at +575!

Do you like rooting for the 9-to-5 blue collar grinder who is going to give you all the effort in the world and overachieve? Jamie Jacques is +700.

You like chalk and/or think this player is head and shoulders above the field? You want the guy who we gave out right here last year at +400 then when he was bet down to -110 we told you he was still value and it was stealing money? Then -215 is nothing to lay on Mac McClung repeating!

McClung should probably be higher so we took some -215 with a tiny sprinkle on a little Toppin hedge.

I threw a bit on Jaylen, thinking that if he moves into the finals that they might be inclined to lean his way in order to incentive more stars to participate in the future.

I had money at Wynn on Celtics to win the championship. They just refunded the bet since they are closing down operations in MA. I’m really annoyed since I can’t get those odds any more.

I bet him heavily on making finalist because of this type of thinking. Ultimately I think they give it to McClung who is clearly having far better dunks.

I have Jaylen finalist (-130). McClung winner (-200)

Nice call. Well deserved for McClung. Jaylen definitely benefited from some generous scoring.

Wait what? That’s lame

if I was a bettor, I’d be apeshit

Did MGM not take over the bets?

Anything looking good for Thursday or are these games to stay away from coming out of the break?

This is the time of year I scale way back and recharge for 2 months leading into my sweet spot, the playoffs. I have a pretty good read on what/who translates from reg season to post-season so what occurs over these last two months don’t interest me a whole lot. I’ll still be involved several nights a week for live betting spots but for the most part mid-April can’t get here fast enough.
