NBA 3-Point Play: Gary Trent Jr., Caleb Martin, Reggie Jackson

The Wednesday NBA slate is one of the grossest of the season.

Jimmy Butler, Bradley Beal and Klay Thompson are among the players already ruled out.

Additionally, there are two teams on the second leg of back-to-back games and two more on the front leg of those situations.

There are still plays to be found in the disgustingness of the slate and three specifically stick out on the 10-game docket.

Gary Trent Jr. Over 2.5 Threes (-120)

Gary Trent Jr. and the Toronto Raptors fade the Sacramento Kings on the second leg of a back-to-back set.

Sacramento struggles with defending shooting guards. Just look at last night’s box score. The Philadelphia 76ers got 21 points from James Harden and 14 points out of Shake Milton from the bench.

The Kings were also torched by RJ Barrett two games ago. Barrett scored 27 points on 21 field-goal attempts. Immanuel Quickley even had 12 points off the bench.

Trent’s point prop is a little too high for my liking with OG Anunoby out, so I’m riding with his three-point prop.

Trent is averaging 7.2 three-point attempts per game in December. He is 7-for-18 in his last two games.

Wednesday’s game presents a perfect spot for Trent to take advantage of a poor defense against shooting guards coming into Toronto with no rest.

Caleb Martin Over 12.5 Points (-105)

The immediate look for most prop bettors with Jimmy Butler out is to look at Tyler Herro.

I’m pivoting to a different look with Caleb Martin.

Martin has 33 points in his last three starts without Butler on the floor.

The points total is not promising, but the shot volume is. Martin had 28 field-goal attempts in those contests.

The shot volume should once again be there against the Oklahoma City Thunder in what is still a lopsided matchup without Butler.

Reggie Jackson Over 13.5 Points (-120)

Reggie Jackson does not have to worry about John Wall taking up his production on Wednesday.

Wall has been ruled out of the Los Angeles Clippers’ clash with the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Minnesota concedes the second-most points per game to point guards and Jackson is the primary scorer from that spot for the Clippers.

The Wolves are coming off two brutal defensive games against Portland, when Damian Lillard scored 74 total points.

Jackson will not have 30-plus-points, but he should have plenty of chances to score against a susceptible Minnesota defense.
