unconditional love Our dogs give us unconditional love, and our home underdogs have given us unconditional love when getting over five points this season (58.9% coverage rate, +13.5 money line units). Neither the Pistons (12-34 this season) nor the Spurs (13-30, 1-7 since New Year’s Eve) are a “comfort bet,” but be careful with fading them blindly in any capacity.

Project Points, Back Dogs: Any gauge you use will shoot a massive drop when it comes to total points in this Kings-Spurs game: – Top 10 Pace, Bottom 10 Defense, etc. You get the idea. In games this season with at least 240 total points, the favorites are 13-6-2. Embrace some potential mayhem with this spot’s high score!

After the breadcrumbs: Look at enough numbers and often talk about both sides of any bet. Any bet next to this early Knicks-Pistons game, that is. Experiment with these trends for volume: 12 of the last 18 Pistons games have ended, three of their past four have ended against bottom-eighth teams, overplayed 9-3-1 in the Knicks’ past 14 games, and oversubscribed. She is 9-1 this season when she favors the Knicks by more than four points. Sheesh. Do you want to isolate an SGP bet or stack? Sportscenter’s Phil Murphy notes that the third quarter is an insane 16-3-1 in Detroit’s home games. Pick a string to pull…they all end up in the same place!

Fantasy streamer: Killian Hayes (available in 67.4% of leagues) It is a staple in this space as it remains available in more than two-thirds of the leagues. It really should be on the list globally at this point. In his six games since the year turned through 2023, Hayes averaged 15.5 PPG, 7.8 APG, 2.5 RPG, 2.3 SPG and 2.0 3PG. Andre Snellings

Best bet: Jalen Bronson over 25.5 points. Bronson has been using a blowtorch all of 2023. In the last few games, I’ve expected him to come back down to earth, and he just keeps getting bigger. Bronson has averaged 33.3 PPG in the six games since the calendar turn and has been over 25.5 points in five straight games. He’s facing the Pistons team that has allowed the second-most points to an opposing guard this season. – snoring

Fictional streamer: Anthony Lamb (available in 98.8% of leagues) caught fire during the outings of Andrew Wiggins and Stephen Curry and hasn’t slowed significantly since their return. Lamb has scored double digits in four of his last five games, averaging 16.2 PPG, 4.8 RPG, 2.8 3PG and 2.6 APG in 27.0 MPG over this stretch. Lamb is down to 24 minutes in his final game and presumably will eventually lose time with the first player back, but he still has 14 points, 5 boards, 3 3-pointers, 2 steals, and 1 block in those 24 minutes and makes a candidate Streamer applicable on Sunday. – snoring

Fantasy Streamer: Malik Monk (available in 89.0% of leagues) He is a linear player who seems to be in the middle of a strong line. In his last three games, he has scored double figures three times, averaging 13.3 PPG, 3.7 RPG, 3.3 APG and 2.0 3PG in 20.7 MPG off the bench. He had a season-high 33 points, set at the end of 2023, and could make a big game any day. – snoring

Best Bet: De’Aaron Fox over 6.5 assists. The fox tends to offer either a handful of help or flirtation in double figures, with little to no middle ground. In his last nine games, Fox has between 9 and 13 assists in five games and 5 and 6 assists in the other four. He’s provided nine assists in three of his last four games, and on Sunday he faces the Spurs tied for the seventh-most assists allowed by opposing point guards. –snoring
