The former teammates face off today in what should be a highly entertaining game here. This morning, I was in a dilemma about wanting to bet on Kevin Durant’s 23.5 line. On one hand, he is facing his former teammates, and Dallas allows the most points to Power Forwards, but on the other, as a Phoenix Sun, thus far, he is shooting 68%, which isn’t sustainable.

The best bet was to reduce KD’s points to 20, where he has hit this number in both games as a member of Phoenix, and pair it with something else. Kyrie to score 20 is something he has accomplished in 7/8 games as a Maverick. He has faced Phoenix once this year as a member of Brooklyn and scored 30.

20 points seem so low for both of these great talents, and with Durants minutes slightly creeping up and Kyrie having the hit rate he has, this feels like a winner. This game should remain close and competitive as this is a game that both teams would certainly really like to win. This is an early start, so get this bet in ASAP. Let's roll!
