Houston Rockets vs. Sacramento Kings Player Prop Bet Prediction: Damian Jones is Too Much Man

I got off to a late start today but it wasn't my fault. The Shockers beat down the Booze Bags last night so there was a celebration afterward. Anytime you are on the giving end of a tremendous beating like that you have to celebrate. That's just how tremendous beatings work. The good news is, I'm back. I've been recharged and I'm ready to gamble just like any other day. We're talking laser-focused here people. Luckily for us, the Sacramento Kings are playing the Houston Rockets tonight and that game should be full of over moves. I wouldn't be surprised if you read multiple articles about this game today written by me. The first one won't be about Davion Mitchell though. Obviously, he is on the table but we may have a new King people. His name is Damian Jones and he's filthy. Perfect for a Friday night.

Damian Jones Over 14.5 Points (+105) (Bet $100 to Win $105)

*Odds Available at DraftKings at Time of Publishing*

This one is at DraftKings as we speak. FanDuel has 15.5 for -106 so definitely check yourself before betting this one there. Getting plus money for a point less at one shop makes the move unplayable at the other shop in my opinion. It is what it is.

I'm a big fan of the name Damian. Always have been. I remember when DMX (RIP) came out with the song "Damien" back in the day. Changed my life. I know Damian Jones spells his name differently than DMX spelled it but it still plays. It's a "John" and "Jon" situation. Both work and neither should be considered right or wrong.

Another thing I'm a big fan of is big guys that like to score and Jones fits that category. He's 6'11", 245 pounds of pure rage and now that he's getting playing time, it's harder for him to hide his dominance. He's an animal that's been caged up for way too long. He showed it the other night when he broke off these same Houston Rockets for 24 points. I'm not just getting excited about one game though, he's scored at least 15 points in each of his last three outings. He's a beast.

The thing about the Rockets is, that they play at a great pace for points and they don't have anyone to protect the rim. They shut down Christian Wood for the season the other day and Alperen Sengun is nursing a leg injury. Osman Garuba and Bruno Fernando tried as hard as they could the other night but they got abused by our guy Damian. He's just too much man for them.

I don't think Jones is a great bet to go 20+ again but he should be able to get us 15. Jakob Poeltl smacked the Rockets around for 17 in only 26 minutes recently and Drew Eubanks canned 18 in just 26 minutes a couple of games before that. At plus money, this one could give us a nice sweat on top of cashing which is all any person on this planet could ever ask for. I think we should bet this. Like right now.
