Pick #1: Zion Williamson Over 23.5 Points

The Pelicans are narrow favorites over the Bulls on Wednesday night. Both teams sit exactly at .500 coming into this one, but the Pels’ record isn’t an exact representation of the strength of their team due to key players missing some time already. Zion Williamson and Brandon Ingram are healthy for Wednesday’s clash, however, and both are poised for big nights in the Windy City.

Williamson is our focus here. The former first overall pick has a points line of 23.5, which seems reasonable enough given his 23.1 average for the season, yet he has gone over this in three of his last four.

Only eight teams allow a higher share of shots at the rim than the Bulls. Williamson almost exclusively shoots in the paint, and while Nikola Vucevic has size, Chicago does not have anyone with the athleticism to slow down the former first overall pick.

Williamson hasn’t been quite as efficient to start the season as some might have expected, but he went 10-for-15 last time out and will inevitably get to the stripe a few times. Given the matchup, this is a low points line.

Pick: Zion Williamson over 23.5 points (-115)

Pick #2: Ivica Zubac To Have A Double-Double

The 6-5 Clippers are 4.5-point favorites for their second game of the season against the Lakers. The Clips won by six when the teams met on opening night with Ivica Zubac enjoying another stellar performance up against his former team, scoring 14 points and clutching 17 rebounds. That was the first of five double-doubles on the season for Zubac, who is averaging by far a career-high in minutes.

Ty Lue has increased Zubac’s role from rarely exceeding 30 minutes to taking on a proper starter workload. He is at a career-high in rebounding rate, too, and has played 33 or more minutes in the last three games. An early candidate for All-Defense, Zubac’s rim protection has been invaluable for the Clips, and that is particularly important against a Lakers team which relies on inside scoring due to a lack of shooting.

For all their depth, the Clippers are limited on options when it comes to guarding Anthony Davis. As a result, if Zubac stays out of foul trouble, he should cruise into the 30-minute range again.

Zubac hasn’t exactly been a double-double machine throughout his career, but that can be attributed to low minutes totals. He has generally excelled against the Lakers, at +126, there is great value on the Mostar native to reach double figures in rebounds and assists.

Pick: Ivica Zubac to have a double-double (+126)
