Beal one of the top choices to surpass Curry's 62-point game

Wizards

Steph Curry set the NBA world, and the Trail Blazers defense in particular, ablaze with a 62-point performance on Sunday night. 

He shot 58.1% from the floor, made eight threes and 18 free throws to set a new career-high and season-high for the NBA in terms of scoring. 62 points won't be easy to beat, but if it's going to be done the oddsmakers at PointsBet sportsbook like Bradley Beal as one of the players to do it.

James Harden (+300)

Steph Curry (+500)

Bradley Beal (+650)

Trae Young (+650)

Kevin Durant (+1200)

Damian Lillard (+1200)

Beal has the third-best odds to set a new season-high in scoring this season behind the three-time defending scoring champion James Harden and Curry himself. It's hard to argue his place behind those two. 

The Wizards' star shooting guard has never reached 60 in his career, but he's gotten close. Beal scored 53 and 55 on back-to-back nights to set his career-high twice in 36 hours. He'd have to hit a new plane to reach 63, which is why so few have done it in NBA history.
