NBA Jock MKT Pick ‘Em – February 28th – Los Angeles Lakers vs. Memphis Grizzlies

Dennis Schröder Over 1 3-Pointers

Lakers guard Dennis Schröder has not hit more than one 3-pointer in a game since February 11th, and has only gone for two 3 pointers twice in the entire month of February. While this line is favorable given his season average and it could be expected that the veteran guard thrives in LeBron’s absence tonight, he is also averaging well above 30 minutes in his last 5 games – this ramped up playing time gives Schröder more opportunity to hit from deep. Schröder averages four 3 point attempts per game and will play more of a floor general role tonight without LeBron. We’re going over on Schröder’s 3-point line.

Jaren Jackson Over 15.5 Points

Coming off a poor performance against the Nuggets in which Jackson only scored 7 points, expect him to come out with force tonight against a Laker team without LeBron James. In their previous matchups, Jackson has drawn James when the Lakers go man-to-man, so with James out, it should be Jackson’s night to thrive. In 5 of his last 6 games, Jackson has scored 15 points, which should make users comfortable putting money down on this reasonable 15.5 line. Jackson will get minutes tonight and return to form at home. Hammer the 15.5 line with Jackson to go over.

Anthony Davis Over 28 points

With no D’Angelo Russell and no LeBron James, the Lakers have few places to reply on for offensive production tonight against a gritty Memphis defense. Davis has scored at least 28 points in two of his last three contests and is no stranger to having an offense rely on him when needed. Expect the Lakers to space the floor to allow Davis to operate tonight as their number one scoring option. Davis has played over 35 games for the Lakers without LeBron so he is no stranger to the pressure. All of these factors should allow him to easily smash this over line of 28 points tonight.
