Wednesday NBA Player Prop Pick: It's Time to YOLO with Patrick Williams in Game 5
Wednesday NBA Player Prop Pick: It's Time to YOLO with Patrick Williams
Not to start off negative but sometimes we all need a little tough love. To you people that say "you don't have time to gamble today", just stop. Would you listen to yourselves? I'm out here working, coaching multiple kid soccer teams and kid basketball teams (on both boards too) and I gamble every day. I talk to guys on Twitter that do even more than that. It's literally what gets us through life. So look in the mirror, slap yourself if you have to, and say, "I will not flake out today. I will do the right thing and get some money down on something". I'll even give you a nice YOLO move to get you going. None of this -130 stuff. We're talking about a +550 banger here people. Everyone has time for those.
Bucks vs. Bulls Game 5 Start Time, Where to Watch, and Odds
When: 7:30 pm ET
Where to Watch: TNT
Patrick Williams 3+ Made Threes (+550) (Bet $100 to win $550)
We're at FanDuel for the 3+ because I just couldn't resist the luscious-looking +550. If you can't bet at FanDuel, then head to DraftKings and get in on the over 1.5 for +165. Let's say you can't get down at DraftKings or FanDuel, take yourself over to BetMGM because they're hanging 1.5 for +165 as well. We have options people. Barstool has 1.5 for +150 so there is that too. What's up?
Is this a dumb bet? Probably. But here's the thing. The first people probably thought the wheel was dumb too. They had to be like, "what the hell are we supposed to do with this?" Now, look at us. We roll everywhere we go. That's just how rolling works. The point is, dumb bets are only dumb until they're not dumb anymore. This might not be that dumb.
First off, the Bulls are down like everybody tonight. No Alex Caruso. No Zach LaVine. These are real problems. I would go as far as calling it a "who cares?" game for the Bulls and their fans. They are probably going to get stomped. But even if they get stomped, they probably won't get shut out. Somebody is going to score and maybe even hit some threes. Williams took six last game. He nailed three of them. He's also likely to play 30+ minutes even in a beatdown.
The minutes are pretty important because you have to be on the court to drain threes. But minutes against the Bucks are even more important because no team saw their opponents shoot more threes this season than Milwaukee. It's the smart way to attack them. Williams didn't take more than four threes in a game all season. He's done that twice in this series already. In fact, they were his last two games. If this guy comes out with a Billy Bad Ass mentality tonight, he could easily drop three threes in this one and nobody would even notice. Except us. We would definitely notice.
