These NBA props are one of the biggest money makers where sports betting is concerned. Let's take advantage while the opportunity is there as I provide you with my picks for Monday.
Total Points For Kemba Walker
Over 17.5 -135
Under 17.5 +105
This prop appears to be an easy one as Kemba Walker has been on fire as of late, scoring 20 points or more in his last 4 games and 6 out of his last 7 games. Walker's shot has been falling and although he faces a tough matchup with Ty Lawson, he should eclipse the 17.5 point mark quite easily against a weak defense.
Free NBA Props Pick: Over 17.5 -135
Total Points For Wilson Chandler
Over 14.5 -115
Under 14.5 -115
This prop could go either way, but I'd be leaning towards the over against Denver. That said, the red flag is up as Chandler is coming off of a very ineffective 4 point effort against a weak Indiana Pacers team. Under is the play for this prop. I don't expect a 4 point effort, but I also don't expect a complete bounce back effort from Chandler.
Free NBA Props Pick: Under 14.5 -115
Total Points For James Harden
Over 25.5 -125
Under 25.5 -105
This is a perfect spot for Harden as he faces a Portland Trail Blazers team with the likes of Damian Lillard and LaMarcus Aldridge at home. While Dwight Howard can score 30 points on any given night, he's not a big time scorer anymore and the Houston offense totally runs through Harden. Harden, who's shooting percentage is quite low for a star player because he's very aggressive and looks to draw fouls while taking difficult shots. Look for a monster game out of Harden at the Toyota Center even against a top-level opponent.
Free NBA Props Pick: Over 25.5 -125
Total Points For Jimmy Butler
Over 19.5 -125
Under 19.5 -105
Butler is quickly emerging into one of the brightest new stars in the NBA as he leads the Chicago Bulls in scoring. The difficult part of being a Bull is that there's only one basketball but a ton of superstars. That said, Jimmy Butler has been able to get his points. In his last 3 games, Butler has scored 21 points or more in each game and has averaged 29 points in that period of time. I don't see anyone on Toronto from stopping Jimmy Butler from scoring 20 points or more for a 4th straight time.
Free NBA Props Pick: Over 19.5 -125
Total Points For Rajon Rondo
Over 9.5 -115
Under 9.5 -115
This is a tough prop as Rondo is very unpredictable where his scoring is concerned. He might want to make a positive impression with his new team by feeding them the ball when they want it. In his last 6 games, Rondo has scored less than 9.5 points or 4 occasions. Is this the night that he breaks out with some shooting when Hawks face Mavericks? I'm going to lean towards....NO.
Free NBA Props Pick: Under 9.5 -115
Total Points For Chandler Parsons
Over 16.5 -135
Under 16.5 +105
Now that Rondo is a member of the Mavericks, player's point total will go up and Chandler Parsons is an up and coming player getting adjusted to playing in Dallas. This is the perfect fit. Parsons has scored over 16.5 points in 4 out of his last 6 games and in most of these games, he scored 20 plus points. The only thing that I don't like about the over is laying the juice, but it's not enough to stop me from taking the 'over' for this NBA pick.
