OKBET NBA Update: Tuesday’s fantasy and NBA betting tips Best OKBET MLB Bets, Expert Predictions, & Odds

Hidden Edge: Indiana travels to Washington tonight in a game that may not catch your eye at first, but we are seeing a potentially profitable betting trend develop. The Pacers are by far the worst first-quarter team in the league. Through five games, they have been historically bad… they have lost the first stanza by at least ten points in each of their games this season. Why is this the case? This is a team lacking depth, with one of its most promising players, Bennedict Mathurin, coming off the bench, a role that naturally limits his first-quarter production. To make matters worse, in the first quarter, the rookie is shooting 38.5% from the field (28.6% from three), compared to 46.8% and 41.7% in the rest of the game. The Wizards have won the first period in three of their four games this season and will be fresh after resting the previous two nights.

Josh Richardson is available in nearly 98% of ESPN leagues, and with Devin Vassell (knee) out for the night, he’s worth a look. With Vassell out, J-Rich provided 11 points and 10 assists on Wednesday night in Minnesota, becoming only the second player this season to record a 10-assist, 0-turnover game. Not bad for a fill-in, and given that he was on the court for 33 minutes (first four games: 20.8 minutes per game), there is counting stat upside on a team that lacks… everything. The Spurs have five games in the next nine days, including a back-to-back next Friday-Saturday, so Richardson could fill a nice usage role beyond tonight while Vassell recovers.

What’s the Point? : The Orlando Magic’s backcourt has been ravaged by injuries. Markelle Fultz and Jalen Suggs had already been sidelined by injuries, while Cole Anthony only recently suffered an oblique injury that will keep him out for several games. Due to the lack of a proven NBA point guard available in the rotation, expect Franz Wagner (20% available in ESPN leagues) to consume more possessions as a playmaker against the Hornets tonight. After all, Wagner is second only to Anthony on the team in potential assists with a solid 8.8 per game this season, making him a solid DFS play and a savvy target for assist props.

Damian Lillard will miss several games for the Portland Trail Blazers due to a calf strain. Because the Portland rotation isn’t in a good position to withstand backcourt injuries, Josh Hart (20% available) is a must-start in fantasy formats. Hart is second only to Lillard in terms of potential assists per game (8.2) and, like Orlando’s Wagner, should become a more important distributor in the coming weeks. For those looking for a streaming option in truly deep redraft leagues, Justise Winslow (99% available) ranks fourth on the team in passes per game and should see a significant increase in minutes and offensive opportunities with Lillard out against the Rockets tonight.

How To Handle Big ‘Dogs: We’ve got a full slate tonight with plenty of “mismatches.” Looking to participate in some of these games with larger spreads but unsure which angle to take? Last season, when a team was favored by at least six points, the following data was collected: *47.8% cover rate *52.5% overs when the underdog covers *54.8% overs when the favorite covers *55.9% overs when the favorite wins outright *57.4% overs when the over/under is 225+
