Guys & Bets (Episode 259): Three NBA, College Basketball and Two Champions League Picks

It’s Wednesday and that means it’s time for the live episode of Guys & Bets! Joe Osborne, Andrew Avery and Iain MacMillan have done their research and have the data to back a full slate of bets. All three cappers are in their wheelhouse today with Joe on the NBA, Ninja on Champions League and Iain on college basketball.

We start the show in the Association and Joe has a play on the total as the Utah Jazz have a tilt with the Thunder in Oklahoma City. These two teams sit third and fourth in the Western Conference in points allowed per game, with Utah holding a slight edge at 107.4 compared to 108.3 for OKC.

Since so many of you like player props, Joe is listening and is giving you another one. This one is for Lonzo Ball as the New Orleans Pelicans are in Sacramento to face the Kings. Ball has been getting a lot of looks lately and has been cashing in. His point total for tonight’s game is set at 12.5.

The Charlotte Hornets might be a Guys & Bets darling and Devonte’ Graham is the next bet for Joe. His point total is set at 16.5 as the Hornets are in Miami to face the Heat. Graham has been quite a surprise for the Hornets this season, averaging 18 ppg. The second-round pick out of Kansas will look to continue his solid offensive play tonight.

It’s the second leg of Champions League play between PSG and Borussia Dortmund and Ninja has a bet locked in on the spread. In a somewhat surprising result in their first match, Borussia pulled out a 2-1 victory at home. Now the attention shifts to Parc des Princes as PSG tries to advance. Mbappe and the French squad were victims to a hot Erling Haaland in the opening match and will look to limit his opportunities.

Another surprising result in the opening legs of matches in Champions League was Atletico Madrid topping Liverpool 1-0. Liverpool hasn’t been in their best form lately, dropping two of their last three matches, while surrendering six goals over that span. Ninja likes a goal prop bet for this one, as questions surround Liverpool’s keeper.

It’s conference championship week in NCAA basketball, and Iain is going to the SEC for his play. Vanderbilt plays Arkansas and the Razorbacks are big favorites. The Commodores finished last in the SEC with a 3-15 record in conference play despite winning their last two games. The play here is on the spread.

As always, the show wraps up with a Q&A session for our viewers, so if there’s anything you’ve always wanted to ask, you should be joining us live every weekday at noon ET on our YouTube channel!
