DraftKings Sportsbook: Thursday NBA Picks

Evan Mobley over 30.5 points + rebounds + assists (-105) at Wizards

This is a relatively high number for Mobley, who is averaging 14.1 points, 8.3 rebounds and 2.4 assists on the season. But we have to consider that Darius Garland and Ricky Rubio are sidelined for Cleveland, leaving the team without proven playmakers at guard. Mobley has flashed playmaking upside this season, so I expect a greater share of the offense to run through him. Plus, the rookie should see more shots than usual. It's easy to imagine 17-10-4 from Mobley in this scenario.

Kyle Kuzma OVER 15.5 points (-120) vs. Cleveland Cavaliers

We're down to three games on tonight's slate, so pickings are slim. That leads us to none other than a Kyle Kuzma points prop. Kuzma has run hot and cold over the last month or so, but he's gone over this number twice in his last three games, including in Tuesday's game against Miami. The Wizards get Bradley Beal back tonight, but they lost Spencer Dinwiddie to COVID-19 protocols, where he joins Montrezl Harrell, Raul Neto and Davis Bertans, among others. As a result, Kuzma is now the Wizards' No. 2 option on a night when Beal will play his first game in nearly two weeks. The Cavs are no longer a pushover, but I like Kuzma's chances to hit the over on a friendly number.
