After nailing yesterday’s Flex Play, we are back at it with another. These are three plays I love for tonight.
Nick Smith Jr. Under 12.5 Points
Freshman Nick Smith Jr. was a heavy contributor to the Razorbacks at the end of the regular season. He averaged 19 points a game in their final five games and hit the game-winner in the first round of the SEC Tournament. However, he has yet to do much since then and has been cold during this NCAA Tournament.
Smith Jr. has six points in the first round against Illinois and zero in the second-round battle with the Jayhawks. Expecting a whomping against UConn today; there is no way Smith Jr. hits double-digits tonight.
Igor Shesterkin + Frederik Andersen Over 55.5 Goalie Saves
Individually, both goalie props were tempting, but taking the combined play is the safe bet.
Andersen is expected to make 23 saves and Igor 31. Andersen’s number is low, and Carolina is capable of putting 50 shots on net. So both goalies are easily capable of hitting their prop, but grabbing both gives bettors solid insurance.
Ricky Rubio Over 6.5 Points
Prizepicks must be copying and pasting this prop because there is no reason for it to be this low still. Rubio has had 8+ points in his last five games. Today, the Cavaliers play the Nets as they are on a back-to-back in Brooklyn. Rubio had eight on Tuesday, and there is no reason to think he won’t have a similar performance tonight.
