Odds taken Feb. 26th from FanDuel & BetMGM

Marc Gasol the Shooter?

Marc Gasol is no one’s idea of a prolific three-point shooter, but somehow here we are in 2021 and he’s bombing threes. In his last five games, Gasol has attempted at least four 3s in every game. Even better, he has hit at least two of those attempts in all of them.

Playing time is always an issue with Gasol, as he only averages 20 minutes per game this season but that’s changing.

Without Anthony Davis, Gasol has been asked to play a few more minutes as he’s averaged 24 minutes in the Lakers’ last three games. At +160, his three-pointers made prop is more than worth a look considering his role on the Lakers squad this season.

  • The Pick: Marc Gasol Over 1.5 Three-Pointers Made (+160)

Victor Oladipo Can Dish

Since coming into the league in 2013, Victor Oladipo has been known as a lockdown defender. He’s scrappy, always willing to take a charge and he can score a bit averaging 17.4 points per game in his career. One thing we don’t hear about too much is his passing ability which has been there long before he was a Houston Rocket.

So far this season, no team in the NBA has allowed more assists per field goals made than the Toronto Raptors. Over the past three games, they have been even worse as 78.6% of field goals made against them came from an assist.

Only once in his career has Oladipo averaged more assists per game than this year. This seems like a great price to get exposure to his passing ability.

  • The Pick: Victor Oladipo Over 4.5 Assists (+106)
