This is the last Friday of the regular season and I'm ready to go out with a bang. A lot of teams are sitting their players tonight, but I have a few picks from the teams that are still trying.

Without further ado, let's get into the picks.

All odds are via WynnBET.

Best Prop Bets Today

  • Seth Curry OVER 12.5 Points (-105)
  • Hornets ML vs. Bulls (+115)

Seth Curry OVER 12.5 Points (-105)

Curry has cleared this line in his last two games. He’s been hurt, but he’s said he's taking a page from Tiger Woods’ book and playing through the pain. The injury hasn’t seemed to affect Curry much and with consistent volume as one of the Nets’ top shooters, this line is very much in play. Curry is shooting 48% from three since he’s got to Brooklyn, which gives me a lot of hope he can keep the sharp shooting up today.

Hornets ML vs. Bulls (+115)

The Bulls have dominated the Hornets in both games this season, winning by an average of 13 points. Tonight will be different though. The Bulls have been one of the worst teams in the league over the last 10 games. They have the fifth-worst net rating over that span. The only teams worse than them have been the Pacers, Lakers, Magic and the Trail Blazers.

Charlotte, on the other hand, has been middle of the pack. The Hornets net rating is 0.0 in that span, coming with six wins in the process. Chicago has been able to outscore the Hornets this season, but tonight its defense will fail them.

Along with all of the offense Chicago will have to stop today, I'm backing the Hornets because they are good in this spot. Charlotte is 15-14-1 as road underdogs. A winning record ATS against a struggling team is a recipe for success.
