Stephen Curry OVER 41.5 points + assists (-115) at WAS – FanDuel (1:17 PM CT)
Curry is playing at a historic level lately, as he's been given the greenest of green lights. Over the past 11 games, he's averaged 40.0 points, 6.1 rebounds and 4.5 assists in 35.0 minutes. The Wizards allow the third-most points (118.1) in the NBA, so I'm not worried about Curry having an off night. Washington doesn't have the personnel to guard him.
Stephen Curry OVER 6.5 three-pointers (+112) at WAS – DraftKings (1:16 PM CT)
Curry has gone over this number in five of the last six games, and while the entire history of basketball suggests this current run isn't sustainable, the Wizards are another team Curry should be able to take advantage of.
DeAndre Ayton OVER 14.5 points (-117) at PHI – DraftKings
Ayton has gone over 14 points in seven of his last nine games, and he's coming off of a 20-point, 13-board effort against Milwaukee on Monday. Typically, the Sixers aren't a matchup to target, but Philly currently has four starters listed as questionable – including Joel Embiid, who was added to the injury report Wednesday morning. If Embiid plays, I don't like this bet as much. But if he sits, Ayton should have a great chance to feast against Dwight Howard, Mike Scott and Anthony Tolliver.
Joe Ingles OVER 23.5 points+rebounds+assists (-117) at HOU - DraftKings (12:01 PM)
In the last two games, not coincidentally without Donovan Mitchell (ankle), Ingles is averaging 20.5 points, 3.5 rebounds and 9.5 assists. Yes, I know it's a small sample size, but I think the veteran Aussie will be able to dismantle a Rockets defense that has the fifth-highest made three-point percentage across the entire league. If Ingles doesn't get close to his o/u point total (14), I think he makes it past the total PRA with assists.
Thunder +10.5 at IND – DraftKings (8:22 AM CT)
The Pacers are playing without Domantas Sabonis and Myles Turner on Wednesday, which could be an exploitable spot for the Thunder. They've gotten tantalizingly close to wins over the past three games, and two of their points differences were well under 11 points.
