Victor Wembanyama (SAS) OVER 24.5 Points + Rebounds
Blog Picks (13-8-1) (3 Wins in a Row)
Let’s dive deep into this and have some fun with Victor Wembanyama in his inaugural game. This young phenom has set the preseason on fire, averaging an impressive 19.3 points and 4.8 rebounds while playing just 21 minutes per game. Those numbers are nothing short of spectacular, considering the limited time on the court.
Now, let’s take a closer look at the Dallas Mavericks. They’re planning to debut a rookie of their own, Dereck Lively II, at center. But when we look at the options behind him, names like Dwight Powell, Richaun Holmes, and Maxi Kleber don’t exactly scream dominance. In fact, it’s fair to say that the Mavericks had some rather underwhelming choices for the center position.
To add a little more context, let’s talk about last year. The Mavericks ranked dead last in the NBA in rebounding. It’s like they were the leaky bucket of the league, struggling to secure possessions off the glass.
So, when we circle back to Wembanyama, there’s a mouthwatering potential for him to feast on the boards right from the get-go. The matchup, especially in terms of rebounding, seems to be leaning in his favor. With his preseason performance as a glimpse into his capabilities, it’s a tantalizing prospect to see him make an immediate impact. Keep your eyes peeled for Wembanyama’s first game – it might just be the start of something special in the making.
