There Is No NBA Tonight So I'm Reliving An All-TIme Prop Hit Last Night

There are no NBA games tonight in an effort to get more people out to the polls to vote, so I wanted to revisit last night. I've been putting out one single NBA prop every night and will continue to do so every day there are NBA games. We started off RED HOT going 6-0 before a 5-5 run in my next 10. But we've reeled off five in a row after last night's hit, which was an absolute miracle. The play last night was Suns Forward Mikal Bridges OVER 13.5 points in Philadelphia against the 76ers.

I liked the play for several reasons, but his splits IN Philadelphia were crazy. Averaging 19.5 ppg over the 14 points needed was a 39% delta, which is outstanding. With Cam Johnson out, he'd been spectacular on the road averaging 22 ppg over his last seven games without his former Tar Heel teammate. He also was from Malvern, PA which is only 40 minutes from the Wells Fargo Center, so he was sure to have lots of family and friends in for the game.

It was a rough 1st Quarter with only 2 points before exploding in the 2nd Quarter for 7. In the 3rd Quarter he put up a donut, 0 points and didn't score the entire 4th Quarter until 2:42 left. I was playing my usual Monday Night Blackjack with Hank when the prop was winding down and watching, and the ending was one I'll remember forever. 

We're now 16-5 on the season and have reeled off five straight! Stay tuned to my twitter and @TrustTheData for in-game updates and some exclusive bets during the NBA season.
