March 7th: Tyrese Maxey OVER 24.5 Points + Rebounds + Assists vs Chicago Bulls (-125)
James Harden returns to the lineup for the Philadelphia 76ers, which has surprisingly elevated the play of Tyrese Maxey to this point. In four games with both players on the court, Maxey averages 34.2 PRA. In fact, he has scored 25+ points in three of those games. The Chicago Bulls are below the league average in defensive efficiency and have surrendered 43 PRA per game to opposing point guards during their current four-game losing streak. This is a great value play for a team that will have all eyes on Harden and Joel Embiid.
March 7th: Rudy Gobert OVER 25.5 Points + Rebounds vs Dallas Mavericks (-120)
This line appears low for Rudy Gobert, who has reached the 25.5 PR mark in four of his last five games. Against the Dallas Mavericks on February 25th, Gobert finished with a 14-point, 17-rebound performance. The Mavericks are 28th in rebounding this season, while the Jazz rebound at the fourth-best rate in the league. Across his last 10 games on the round, Gobert has reach the 25.5 PR mark on eight occasions.
