The NBA season rolls on and we go straight in early on this time with a pick in order to try and take advantage of some poor lines early on.
HOU Rockets v PHX Suns – Harden Over 27.5 points @ 1.85 (888Sport) – 2.5 points
James Harden has been a one man recking crew ever since Howard, Beverley and Jones have been out due to injury with a lot of reliance on his shoulders to pick up the scoring load.
James has taken a liking to it already and is averaging around 27 points per game in the recent stretch of 5 games so far. Harden has been going to the three point line at least 5 times per game while knocking down at least 3, and with a poor defensive team like Phoenix, he will surely be launching some bombs from out there.
Phoenix who also boasts shorter players v most teams in the NBA; will look to take it to the basket and score and if not at least get to the free throw line, going on average 9 times per night, knocking down around 8 of them.
Harden went crazy against the T’Wolves last night launching them for 38 points; and will be looking for a similar kind of production against the fast paced Suns, who will surely provide him a lot of opportunities to score on the fast break.
