Wednesday was another 3-2 day, just sneaking under the Karl-Anthony Towns points under. Now, we once again navigate COVID protocols for Thursday’s games.

Houston Rockets @ Milwaukee Bucks

The Bucks should get Khris Middleton back, but without Giannis Antetokounmpo and Bobby Portis, I think Grayson Allen still gets enough shots to cover his points line. On Sportsbet, over 13.5 points is $1.91.

Best bet: Player points - Allen over 13.5

Cleveland Cavaliers @ Boston Celtics

We know are hit hard by COVID absences, but their high usage players in Darius Garland and Kevin Love are still there. 

The market has bumped Cedi Osman’s points line up to 16.5, but I think he goes under. On TAB, that pays $1.87. His rebound line is at 5.5 on TAB as well, so let’s go under that for $1.60

Best bet: Player points - Osman under 16.5

Best bet: Player rebounds - Osman under 5.5

LA Clippers @ Sacramento Kings

The Clippers have Paul George back while the Kings are without their COVID guys, including De’Aaron Fox, although Richaun Holmes is on track to play. 

But, the talent discrepancy favours the Clippers and surely it is by more than 5.5 points. I also want to target Chimezi Metu’s rebound number. It’s only 6.5 and on TAb over that number pays $1.90

Best bet: Handicap betting - Clippers -5.5

Best bet: Player rebounds - Metu over 6.5
