CROWN HIM: Can LBJ score a thunderous 36?

EXPERT PICKS: Paige’s golf pick is not a Waste

POWER HOUR: Boosted odds on King James!

LOUDEST SHOW ON TURF: Ace up their sleeves?

TONIGHT THE NIGHT?

CROWN HIM!

How will LeBron break the record? Dunk (+500) is taking solid action.

LeBron needs 36 points to pass Kareem. Will he do it tonight? Pass the popcorn!

  • Tonight vs. Thunder (+140): LeBron has scored 36+ nine times in 43 games, though many came during a post-New Year’s heat check. OKC’s normally solid defense just yielded 141 points to Golden State without Steph Curry.
  • Thursday vs. Bucks (-180): He went for 28 (on 12/27 FGs) at Milwaukee in December. This is basically his last chance to set the record at home.
  • Saturday at Warriors (+1500): Those poor ticketholders. No Steph and probably a game late on LBJ – unless his sore left ankle is worse than everyone thinks.
  • Feb 13 at Trail Blazers (+5000): Unless LeBron turns into Ben Simmons, this ain’t happening.

EXPERT PICKS

The PointsBet triumvirate of ambassador Paige Spiranac, NBA studio host Kazeem 'Kaz' Famuyide and college sports guru Lucy Rohden fire off their best plays.

THE FORMER PRO

Rickie Fowler Top 10 (+230) at WM Phoenix Open
“His game is trending and he’ll get a ton of fan support. Knowing how to handle rowdy fans is a huge advantage this week.”
LeBron Method of Record Breaking Point: Dunk (+500)
“Layup? 3-pointer? Free throw? Nah, LeBron will seize the moment!”

THE NBA HOST

Nets +8 vs. Suns (-110)
“Can Cam Thomas keep it going? I think so. Also check out the moneyline (+240).”
Lakers -6.5 vs. Thunder (-110)
“Big chance at history tonight, and Crypto will be rocking. Lakers roll, which means LeBron sits early and breaks the record against Milwaukee.”

THE COMEDIAN

Wake Forest +1 vs. UNC (-110)
“I am betting this because UNC and Duke both losing on back-to-back nights would be hilarious, and comedy always wins.”
Arkansas +6 @ Kentucky (-110)
“Now everyone can pay for players, so Kentucky is no longer at an advantage.”

PointsBet Data and Insights

Here’s how we’d bet Thunder-Lakers (10 p.m. ET):

  [$45] Lakers -6.5: The rest factor could be huge: The Lakers are home and haven’t suited up since Saturday. OKC is playing in its third arena in four nights.

  [$35] Under 239.5: Going with the trends: The Under ↘️ has hit in five of the last seven Lakers home games AND four of the Thunder’s last five road contests.

  [$20] LeBron Under 32.5 Points: Yup, we’re fading the King. He is dealing with ankle soreness and admitted he’s “tired as hell.”

BEER SHOWER PLEASE

LOUDEST SHOW ON TURF

EVENT: WM Phoenix Open (Thursday-Sunday)

WHY WE’LL WATCH: The Tour’s wildest atmosphere will be even crazier with Super Bowl celebs in town. Nine of the world’s top 10 players will compete, including the spicy-hot Rory McIlroy. Let’s hope he gets a beer shower for an ace on 16!

COURSE INFO: TPC Scottsdale is one of the tour’s most predictive courses, meaning the same players tend to score well year after year. The par-71, 7,261-yard track favors long drivers (Hideki Matsuyama, Brooks Koepka, Scottie Scheffler).

FAVES: Jon Rahm (+750) has popped ahead of McIlroy (+800), followed by Scheffler, the defending champ.

BET TO CONSIDER: Justin Thomas Top 20 (+110): JT has finished 17th or better here five straight times.

SUPER BOWL MVP EDITION

POWER️‍♂️ RANKINGS

Is this Penn State alum worthy of a Super Bowl MVP bet? Read below. (AP Photo)

  • Patrick Mahomes (+125): This is a popular alternative to taking the Chiefs’ +100 moneyline. Mahomes won this three years ago when his crew took down the 49ers.
  • Jalen Hurts (+130): Nine of the last 13 MVPs went to the winning QB, and Philly is the Super Bowl fave.
  • Travis Kelce (+1100): A tight end has never won Super Bowl MVP. But Kelce could be this year’s Cooper Kupp, who cashed at +600.
  • AJ Brown (+1600): The first-year Eagle was acquired for big games, and he’s a strong buy-low candidate after a quiet postseason (7 receptions, 50 yards).
  • Miles Sanders (+2500): KC’s worst unit is the run defense, and this guy can run for miles.
  • DeVonta Smith (+2500): The 2020 Heisman Trophy winner has a history of claiming a “quarterback award.”
