NBA Selections – December 14, 2023 – Julius Randle

Posted on

Over the last 3 games, both the Knicks and Jazz have seen some fairly high scoring games with the Knicks averaging 127 points / 136 opponent points and Utah 106 points / 133 opponent points.

I was initially a little surprised to see the total at 229.5 points here and did consider over as the play however the total available for Julius Randle seems more appealing.

In the last 3 games Randle is averaging 31.7 points and with Utah listing John Collins, Walker Kessler and Lauri Markkanen as questionable (in addition to Jordan Clarkson being out) I expect Utah to struggle defensively opening the door for Randle to dominate.

Edit: Markkanen and Kessler have been upgraded to probable since writing however this does reduce the change of a blowout. Staking has been slightly reduced due to the probable tags.
