Golden State Warriors vs. Denver Nuggets Player Prop Pick: Don't Doubt DeMarcus Cousins Tonight

I've unloaded on the Chicago Bulls vs Milwaukee Bucks game tonight. We all saw what I did. If you haven't, I suggest you check it out because it's perfect. But here's the thing, the only thing better than taking down a +550 & +630 bet is having another bet right after it. It's simple math. Three bets is always better than two bets. You don't have to graduate from Lincoln High School to know that. Luckily for us, the Denver Nuggets will be playing their final game of the season tonight against the Golden State Warriors. It's on TNT super late (10:00pm ET) so it's the perfect "come down" game. There's no chance we'll be able to sleep right after banging out +550 and a +630 move. We know that already. I would suggest a nice easy plus money move to ease our transition. This one is perfect.

Warriors vs. Nuggets Game 5 Line Movement

Golden State Warriors vs. Denver Nuggets Game 5 Prediction

Demarcus Cousins Over 6.5 Points (+110) (Bet $100 to Win $110)

*Odds Available at FanDuel at Time of Publishing*

I'm at FanDuel for this one but you can easily go over to DraftKings and get the same number. The only difference is DraftKings has 6.5 for +100. I like the +110 better. Also betting at FanDuel means that if you want to go nuts on Cousins' 10+ points (+390), you can. I'm just sticking with the 6.5 though.

This is likely going to be the last game of the season for Denver. They had a good run without two of their best players and they will no doubt be back in the mix next season. Nikola Jokic was great but he's only one guy. Beating the Warriors in a seven-game series will take more than one guy. Basically, all I'm saying is, that Nugget fans shouldn't be mad that I'm saying they're going to lose tonight.

With the Nuggets being eliminated, we should also consider getting down on Boogie Cousins one more time. Who knows if we will see this guy again? The NBA is weird like that. I damn sure don't know how many more times it will make sense to bet on him. Not like it will tonight at least.

You may not have noticed but Cousins has topped this number in every game in this series so far. We're talking all of them. I know he barely plays but it doesn't matter. He's like Debo in Friday. When he's in the game, he gets to shoot the ball. Nobody is going to say anything about it. The guy took 10 shots in his first 21 minutes of the series. That doesn't even count free throw attempts. This is the perfect way to come off of the Bulls wins tonight. Not a lot of stress but still a nice little sweat.
