Odds as of January 15th at FanDuel.

Giannis Antetokounmpo Rebounds

The Greek Freak has been mashing the glass as of late, hauling down 12 boards or more in three straight games, and climbing over his total set vs the Raptors in five of his last seven outings.

It’s Antetokounmpo’s first matchup with Toronto this year, but he totaled better than 11.5 rebounds against the Raps in three games last season.

Toronto is coming off a brutal loss to the Detroit Pistons and will be playing the second night of a back-to-back. The Raptors are just 25th in field goal shooting this season, leaving ample opportunities for Giannis to keep cleaning glass.

The Raptors are just outside the top-10 in fewest rebounds allowed, but that won’t matter Saturday.

The TO frontcourt will feature 6-foot-7 Scottie Barnes and 6-foot-8 Pascal Siakam as the biggest players on the floor, battling  the 7-foot Giannis inside. That’s advantage Bucks.

  • Pick: Antetokounmpo Over 11.5 Rebounds (-110)

Russell Westbrook 3-Pointers

We’re taking the bait.

To say that Russell Westbrook is struggling with his jumper is being generous. The Lakers’ prized offseason acquisition is suffering through a brutal shooting season with the Lakers, quite literally shooting LA out of a handful of games already this season.

Last time out, he was blanked in an 0-for-5 effort from three-point range in a loss to the Kings. Russ has now gone six straight games without hitting a three-pointer. He’s 0-for-15, though one of those games he didn’t attempt a triple. He’s shooting a dismal 28.8% mark from three this year.

He suffered through a 7-game drought last season while with the Wizards, though he did only take 14 three pointers total, and had three games where he attempted just one chuck from deep.

This is simply a numbers game, and the Lakers’ guard will eventually break this streak. It’s not a reluctance thing like Ben Simmons, it’s just a missing issue. Look for him to crack the code Saturday.

  • Pick: Westbrook OVER 0.5 3-point makes (-106)
