The NBA season is back tonight, 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.
SAC v TOR – D Cousins Over 27.5 points @ 2.10 (888Sport) – 2.5 points
DaMarcus ‘Boogie’ Cousins will be looking forward to take on the Toronto Raptors and leading his team to another potential victory after leading them to 2 straight victories over Detroit and Brooklyn at home.
Cousins has finally found his fitness and is averaging 31.3 points per game over the last 3 games since recovering from injury, and has been largely instrumental in his teams success.Cousins continues also to dominate the ball inside and managed to get to the line 11 times on average for the season while knocking down 8 of them. If you just take his 16 points form the field and his 8 points form the line; thats already 24 you have from him, not considering his dangerous threat from the field.
Tonight he takes on Jonas Valancuinas, who is not the most gifted defender but has been instrumental in keeping the scoring down on the weaker centres in the league. The good centres however have dominated him on to good efforts like Whitside (20 pts, 11 reb); Jahlil Okafor (26 pts, 7 reb), Adams+Kanter (25 pts, 13 reb) as some examples. Cousins is someone who will enjoy taking on him, because he will draw him out of the paint and either make a move to the rack, or dish out the assist to someone to drive in the middle. Not to forget Cousins 3-point shot.
Boogie Cousins is the focal point of the Kings offence, and there will be a lot of pick and rolls and pick and pops set up for him and his ability crash the glass with 3 offensive rebounds per game, gives him additional chances to score, and I am backing hint to score over 27 points tonight.
