Friday's NBA schedule features 10 games on the docket as we offer our NBA player props and best bets are based on the best NBA odds.

We went 3-1 out of the game on Thursday's massive 12-game slate, which marked the first night back from the NBA All-Star break. And we've got our eyes on a handful of scoring props across Friday's 10-game schedule.

The Toronto Raptors face the Atlanta Hawks. Will Immanuel Quickley be the latest guard to torch Atlanta’s lackluster defense?

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and the Oklahoma City Thunder host the Washington Wizards on the second night of a back-to-back, and the superstar will look to extend his 30-point scoring streak.

Meanwhile, Vince Williams continues to cook for the Memphis Grizzlies, and we’ll target his PRA prop against the Los Angeles Clippers.

Finally, can Duncan Robinson stay hot from beyond the arc when the Miami Heat face the New Orleans Pelicans?

Here are our NBA player props and best bets for Friday (NBA picks based on odds via our best NBA betting sites; pick confidence based on a 1-to-5-star scale).

Friday’s NBA player props

Immanuel Quickley Over 19.5 points vs. Hawks (+110 via FanDuel) ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Until further notice, we’re betting on guards having great scoring games against the Hawks. Atlanta allows the second-most points per game to opponents overall (123.9) and the most at home (125.7). The Hawks have been particularly generous to opposing guards.

The last time a guard didn’t score 20 against Atlanta was 10 games ago against Toronto when Quickley was sidelined. Over their last nine, Atlanta has allowed 12 different guards to score at least 20 points against them.

Quickley has averaged 16.6 points in 21 games with the Raptors, going for at least 20 in eight of them. That includes his last outing and two of his last five. He averages 17.8 points per game on the road compared to just 15.2 at home since joining Toronto, and five of his 20-point games have come outside of Scotiabank Arena.

Quickley’s points prop is set at 18.5 across our best sports betting sites, but for just one point more, we can get it at plus money. This is an easy Over.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander Over 31.5 points vs. Wizards (-110 via bet365) ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Speaking of favorable matchups, the Wizards allow the most points per game to opponents overall (124), and Washington has been crushed by opposing scorers all season. That’s great news for one of the Association’s leading scorers, who’s dropped at least 31 points in three straight.

Gilgeous-Alexander averages 31.6 points per game at home, and he’s scored at least 32 points in more than half of his games this season, doing so 28 times in 54 appearances.

He scored 32 at Washington on Jan. 8, and he’ll look to score at least that many once again. Oklahoma City is playing the second night of a back-to-back set, and SGA has thrived in that situation this season.

In eight games played on the second night of a back-to-back, the star guard has scored at least 32 points six times and averaged 33.4 points.

Vince Williams Over 23.5 points + rebounds + assists vs. Clippers (-120 via bet365)  ⭐⭐⭐⭐

When will the books get this one right? Until this line goes up, we’re going to keep betting the Over for “VW Bus.”

Williams has averaged 16.2 points, 6.6 rebounds, and 4.9 assists across 34.8 minutes over his last 16 games, averaging 27.7 PRA in that span. He’s eclipsed 24 PRA in 13 of those, including a ridiculous nine straight.

Memphis’ injury report is still extensive coming out of the All-Star break, and there’s no reason to think Williams’ minutes or opportunities will fall off now.

The matchup with Los Angeles isn’t the best on paper, but given his substantial minutes and dearth of talent around him, we’re taking the Over once again.

Duncan Robinson Over 3.5 3-pointers vs. Pelicans (+130 via DraftKings) ⭐⭐⭐

Robinson is averaging 2.8 triples on 41.2% shooting from beyond the arc this season, and he’ll look to knock down at least four triples against a generous Pelicans’ perimeter defense. New Orleans ranks 11th in 3-pointers allowed per game (13.4), but they’ve allowed the fourth-most over their last three contests (16).

Robinson is in line for additional playing time on Friday. Terry Rozier and Josh Richardson remain out, and Tyler Herro is questionable. Jimmy Butler is expected to take the court, but Robinson could still push for 30 minutes given the other injuries in the backcourt.

In 21 games with at least 30 minutes, Robinson knocked down at least four triples 10 times and averaged 3.7 threes in that span. We’ll take the Over for plus money, with the most favorable odds of any of our best sports betting apps being offered at DraftKings.
