Player prop parlays continue to be my favorite way to be NBA despite the risk. These are two tough opponents to go up against, which does give me some concern, and I scratched the idea of adding some Cavs props because they face the Warriors' elite defense. Still, here's the breakdown: With Spencer Dinwiddie (and Davis Bertans) out, Beal averages 6.8 assists per 36 minutes. He's also averaging 7.2 dimes across his past five games. With OG Anunoby and Precious Achiuwa out for Toronto, VanVleet launches 10.2 threes per 36 minutes. I think he'll stay beyond the arc with Rudy Gobert roaming the paint.
Golden State Warriors -9.0 (-115) at Cleveland Cavaliers – DraftKings Sportsbook, 1:30 PM CT
There are a handful of big spreads on tonight's slate, and I like both favorites in this game as well as the Raptors-Jazz (-10.5) contest. While Golden State is on the road in the midst of an Eastern Conference road swing, the Cavs are simply too depleted to run with the best team in the NBA right now. Cleveland will be without four regular starters in Jarrett Allen, Lauri Markkanen, Collin Sexton and Evan Mobley. The Warriors aren't a team that punishes opponents inside, but the Ricky Rubio-Darius Garland-Kevin Love trio won't be enough to keep up with Steph Curry and Co.
