Trae Young Over 2.5 Made Threes (-132)
Trae Young has gone 2 for 12 from three over his past two games. He has a great matchup tonight to get back on track.
The Atlanta Hawks are facing the Orlando Magic. Orlando is giving up a three-point attempt rate of 42.3%, the third-highest. They're permitting the fourth-most three-point tries per game to point guards (9.2).
Young has taken at least seven three-pointers in four of his last five games. He should have no trouble finding room to get off shots tonight.
We project him to sink 3.5 triples on 9.5 attempts.
Evan Mobley Under 15.5 Points (-115)
Evan Mobley has been scoring well of late, netting 18 and 20 points in his past two outings. There are reasons to expect that to slow tonight. The matchup is the biggest one.
On top of that, the Sixers have been great against centers, and Mobley has been playing more center for the Cleveland Cavaliers with Jarrett Allen sidelined. Philly has held centers to just 19.1 points per game, the third-fewest.
Our model has Mobley scoring 13.7 points on Wednesday.
Patrick Williams Under 0.5 Made Threes (+150)
This one is risky, but I like the +150 number.
Patrick Williams has been amazing from three lately -- too amazing. The Chicago Bulls' former first-round pick has shot an astounding 63.3% from beyond the arc over his past seven games. It's led to him making at least one trey in all seven of those contests.
So why am I on the under here?
You don't need me to tell you this, but Williams won't keep shooting that well -- even though he's an excellent three-point shooter (42.5% for his career). And Williams isn't a high-volume shooter, taking an average of only 3.1 treys per night in his hot seven-game run.
In addition to that, Williams draws a difficult matchup with the Phoenix Suns. Phoenix has allowed a three-point attempt rate of just 35.6%, the fourth-lowest.
All in all, I think there's a better chance than the +150 price implies that Williams goes 0-fer tonight from three. I'll take a stab at it.
