Pick: Over 14.5 / Odds: 1.90 / Stake: 7 / Bet365

NBA - Most Rebounds of the Night - Clint Capela @2.37, Stake 6/10 (Rest of the line - Pau Gasol, Kawhi Leonard, Lamarcus Aldridge ) With Nene Hilario done for the Series, we can expect a significant bump in Capela's minutes ( 26 mpg in the match up vs the Spurs ) which could bring him in the area of hes monstrous per 36 averages of 19 pts. and 12,2 rebounds. He basically remains the only legitimate weapon for the Rockets under the basket and i expect him to be heavily featured for the rest of the series.
Hes opponents are prominent rebounders in their respective careers, they are however often found in a position share and don't currently enjoy the best form of their lives. Aldridge has recorded respectable 6.5 rebounds per game against Houston, yet these are far from hes glory days in Portland where he was a permanent double double threat. Pau Gasol is in the dawn of hes long career, got completely out hustled against Memphis (5.7 rebs) in the first round and hasn't been much of a factor against the Rockets either, albeit recording 8.8 rebounds, but mostly due to a good performance with 13 in game two. Leonard is a great defender, but that doesn't always equal great rebounding numbers and i do believe, San Antonio has enough backcourt players, so that he can concentrate he's efforts elsewhere.
