NBA Picks Today - Best Bets for Wednesday, December 7

Jordan Poole Over 24.5 points (-125)

Both Stephen Curry and Andrew Wiggins are out for Golden State. In a very limited sample size (six minutes of run), Poole's usage rate has been 45% when those two are off the court. He is hands down the Warriors' best available offensive weapon tonight.

Utah Jazz -7.5 vs. Golden State Warriors (-115)

The Jazz lost to the Warriors by 11 points late last month, but Golden State will be incredibly shorthanded Wednesday with Stephen Curry, Andrew Wiggins, Draymond Green and Andre Iguodala out. The Warriors struggled to generate much offense the last time those players were sidelined (Nov. 21), as they lost to the Pelicans, 128-83. It's not yet clear whether Mike Conleywill be available Wednesday, but regardless of his status, I like the chances on this bet.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander Over 29.5 points (-123)

Gilgeous-Alexander's scoring line under 30 points is always enticing. The star guard has scored at least 30 points in each of his last seven games. Considering that Memphis is 14th in points allowed per game and Ja Morant isn't a particularly good defender, I see no reason for that trend to stop. Expect two of the league's top young guards to go at each other Wednesday night.
