Regression hit on Friday, with the article plays going 0-3. Hopefully, you tailed on Twitter, where some player props developed throughout the day and went 4-1. The article record for the season drops to 13-9, but it’s still in the green. Monday’s betting card already lost a game to COVID protocols, so we’re down to seven games to dig through for value.
Follow along on Twitter — @julianedlow — for what we hope to be another great season, as some plays jump out late due to news, particularly in the player prop market. Here’s what jumps out to me on DraftKings Sportsbook.
I rolled out the first-quarter bets last week and we went 0-2. After two weeks of data, it wasn’t necessarily too early, but the more data we have the better. I’ve been waiting for more of a lopsided matchup, and this one should give it to us. The Suns have been rolling in the first half of games this season, going 8-2 1H ATS — their plus-4.8 margin ranks fourth in the NBA. Going on the road hasn’t been an issue, in fact, the trend gets even stronger. Phoenix is 5-1 1H ATS on the road, outscoring opponents by over 5.7 points in first halves away from home.
