Mavericks vs. Thunder prop bet predictions for Wednesday

Luka Doncic Under 29.5 points ⭐⭐⭐

At times, Doncic has looked like the second coming of Larry Bird, and at others, he looks like your drunk uncle who's got one bad knee but swears he was All-State in high school. It's pretty clear that Doncic's knee is continuing to bother him and slowing his scoring output.

Despite coming off a triple-double in Game 4, Doncic scored just 18 while going 2-for-9 from three. The knee is hurting his ability to elevate and in turn has him shooting abysmally from deep. Since the injury in the first round against the Los Angeles Clippers, Doncic is averaging 25.3 points and shooting 22.8% from behind the arc.

Doncic has scored fewer than 30 points in seven of his last eight games. The -120 odds imply a 54.55% probability the Under hits, according to our odds calculator, with a $10 bet paying out $18.33 in total.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander Over 46.5 points + rebounds + assists ⭐⭐⭐

The two most prominent Kentucky fans from Canada are on entirely different trajectories right now. While Drake is getting it handed to him by an MC from California, Gilgeous-Alexander is taking it to a PG from Slovenia. (Won't be long until Drake's making a hog call with John Calipari at Arkansas, but what can he rhyme with woo pig sooie?)

After a slow first round by his standards, Gilgeous-Alexander has come alive against the Mavericks. He's averaging 31.8 points, 9.8 rebounds, and 7.0 assists in this series - for a combined total of 48.6 - and has cleared this prop total in all four games.

The Mavericks defense has been up and down all year, and with Doncic banged up, it's opened the door for SGA to take over the series. A $10 bet on these odds would return a $9.26 profit on a winning ticket with a 51.92% win probability.

Best odds: -108 via DraftKings

Jalen Williams Over 10.5 rebounds + assists ⭐⭐⭐⭐

What a thrill it is to hear Ian Eagle say, "Jalen Williams passes to the other Jaylin Williams," a true treat that the Thunder have two second-year players with the same name. Even if it leads to some confusion, Mark Daigneault can't be complaining with the way they've both impacted the series - especially Jalen Williams.

While he's been sporadic as a shooter against the Mavericks, Williams has made up for it with his energetic rebounding and playmaking instincts. He's coming off a nine-rebound, six-assist game and is averaging a combined 11.8 in the series.

I love the +100 odds because they're an outlier price. This same prop is -120 at our other best sports betting apps. Those odds imply a 54.64% probability the prop hits, but our odds pay $20 in total on a $10 bet.

Best odds: +100 via FanDuel
