Ben Simmons over 21.5 points + rebounds + assists (-120)
This will be a fun game for Ben Simmons. 76ers fans will likely give him a hard time considering the way he came off. Fortunately for the Nets guard, he comes into this game soundly. He produced consecutive games totaling 35 points, rebounds and assists. This was stimulated by his return to the starting line-up. Given that it finally looks like Simmons of old and the Brooklyn Nets have won two straight games, don’t expect that or his turn to change tonight.
Simmons will be helped tonight by the 76ers’ absence of Joel Embiid. The center is the best rim guard available for the home team. Given that the only area of the floor the Australian has effective scoring from is the paint, it will make his life much easier. With consecutive games scoring a season high in points, he should be well prepared to set up the points with his points alone. Given that he’s a triple threat on a nightly basis, more PRA seems like the bet to make here.

Jaden Ivey Over 1.5 Made From Threes (+114)
With Kid Cunningham sitting out the Detroit Pistons, Jaden Ivey stepped up and took over their offense. Part of that job for him involves threatening his surroundings, something he hasn’t given up on in recent games. Over the last 5 matches, the keeper has averaged 6.2 tries. That includes a season-high 9 against the Los Angeles Lakers 1 game before. Considering he’s making 32.9% of his three-pointers this season, this level of aggressiveness makes this look a good value.
Nuggets should represent a good opponent that Ivey can be aggressive from the perimeter. On the season, they are currently 19th in opponents’ three-point attempts per game and 17th in opponents’ three-point attempts. Given that Ivey has so far proven to be a mediocre shooter, the Nuggets must be willing to give up on the 3-point shot — especially when considering how blasting he is in the paint. Given the go-ahead as a rookie on the Pistons’ rebuilding team, he should get enough attempts to land a few perimeter shots.
