Saturday: 1-1 (-0.06 units)
Season: 8-15 (-8.24 units)
Recap: Richaun Holmes made us sweat to get to 9 rebs, but missed a couple of acrobatic layups late in the fourth quarter, so we missed that over by the hook.
First pick: Jaylen Brown O22.5 pts vs DET (-110) – winner
Fact #1: He has totaled 23+ points in four of six games, including 25 on New Year’s Day against these same Pistons.
Fact #2: Detroit allows 25.4 points per game to the 2-guard position, which I would expect Brown to occupy again if Teague comes off the bench rather than starting.
Second pick: Joe Harris O12.5 pts vs WAS (-120)
Fact #1: Harris has 13+ pts in three of his last four
Fact #2: The Wizards give up an average of 26.2 points to the 2-guard position this season
Fact #3: Assuming Russ takes Kyrie, that potential means Harris gets to run Beal around screens all night. We like!
Third pick: Kevin Durant O27.5 pts vs WAS (-120)
Fact #1: Durant has 28+ points four of his five games this season, so I’m going to keep playing this until it doesn’t hit.
