NBA Jock MKT Pick ‘Em – March 17th – Golden State Warriors at Atlanta Hawks

Bogdan Bogdanovic Over 2 3-Pointers

Bogdan Bogdanović is a crucial part of the Atlanta Hawks offense. He allows the team to spread the floor with his dominant shooting abilities with both his mid-range game and from beyond the arc. The Atlanta Hawks sharpshooter has just been rewarded by the team with a four-year contract extension for his success.

The Hawks currently sit in the 8th seed in the East and are playing against a Warriors team that hasn’t won on the road since January. On their homecourt, I expect Bogdan to be as comfortable as ever with his shot and easily hammer this 2 3-pointer line. Bogdan has hit the mark in four of his last five games and is shooting the ball from deep at over 40% this season. 

As the Hawks sixth man, he gets plenty of minutes on the floor averaging just under 30 minutes per game. He shoots the ball roughly 9 times per game with half of his attempts coming from the three point line. 

Hamer the over tonight with Bogdan at home against the Warriors. 

Steph Curry Over 29 Points

Steph has just come off a monster game against the Clippers where he dropped 50 points in a losing effort. The Warriors currently sit in the 6th seed in the West where just one game separates them from having to be a part of the play in tournament to make the postseason. Every game matters and they haven’t won on the road since January. 

With the pressure being on Golden State to win tonight, the team runs at Steph’s pace. He has hit the 29 point mark in four of his last six games since returning from injury and is shooting 10+ 3-point attempts in that stretch. If Steph gets hot from deep, he will crush this line as he did against the Clippers on Wednesday. 

He will be matched up against Trae Young, who is an undersized point guard and is not renowned for his defense. Steph is going to create plenty of opportunities for himself tonight and I expect him to continue shooting at a high volume and get buckets all over the floor tonight. 

Steph and the over on the road vs. the Hawks is my play tonight.
