Milwaukee Bucks vs. Denver Nuggets: Giannis Antetokounmpo OVER 25.5 Points (-105)

Giannis Antetokounmpo is getting my support tonight in Denver. He’s cleared this line in four of the last five games he’s played at least 30 minutes in. 

Milwaukee has been rolling lately. The Bucks have won their last five games and are back in their rhythm. The Nuggets aren’t a stout defensive team (14th in defensive rating) and they could be missing Nikola Jokic tonight. If he doesn’t play, expect Antetokounmpo to get his early and often. -- Donnavan Smoot

Toronto Raptors vs. Indiana Pacers: Scottie Barnes OVER 7.0 Rebounds (-125)

Barnes has gone over this total in 10 of 15 games this season and should be playing in a back and forth affair against the Pacers. This feels a bit cheap for the rookie, who is playing more than 30 minutes again and will be going up against an Indiana team that is below league average in rebounding percentage over the last two weeks. -- Reed Wallach

Portland Trail Blazers vs. Golden State Warriors: Steph Curry OVER 29.5 Points (-105)

Usually, the over on Steph’s scoring prop is heavily favored, but after a 12-point game against the Toronto Raptors and 25 points against the Philadelphia 76ers, he’s just -105 to score 30 points on Friday. 

Steph has six games of over 30 points on the season, but in those games he’s gone for 36 or more points in all of them, Curry has gone over this number four times in his last eight games, and he’s in a great spot against a horrible Blazers defense on Friday. 

Portland has the third worst defensive rating in the NBA, and WynnBET has the total in this game at 225. Curry is going to have a field day against the Blazers, a team that he dropped 26, 62 and 35 points in his three games against last season. -- Peter Dewey
