Trae is going back to Madison Square Garden and I'm not touching his props. There is more value in Dejounte Murray and let me explain why. Ever since Trae and head coach Nate McMillan had their beef, Trae has struggled scoring and Dejounte has not. Dejounte covered this line in all 3 games since then averaging 28.33 PPG.
It's been a perfect storm because not only has Trae's production gone down, but John Collins and Deandre Hunter's injury has opened the door for more volume. Dejounte has certainly picked up the slack shooting 20+ shots in his last 3 games without them. Dejounte has covered this line EVERY SINGLE GAME THIS YEAR when he shoots more than 20+ shots (10 games) averaging 28.2 points per game. After dropping 36 @ Madison Square Garden earlier this season I fully expect Dejounte Murray to do it again without Hunter, Collins, and normal Trae Young production.
Best odds on MGM & Bet365, but 25+ is +160 on Points Bet & Fanduel.
I am once again asking you to make some three pointers Michael. Over on DraftKings (get it here if you don't have it, $5 gets you $200 in Bonus Bets) they're giving us an SGP boost...
