With the start of the 2015 MLB Season and The Masters going on, bettors have a lot of things going on at once, but let's not forget the sport that we've been betting on for the lasty 5 month in the NBA. Today, I have a bunch of NBA Player Props to offer you in pursuit of making a tidy profit.

Thursday night has the tendency of containing a limited amount of action and tonight, we only have two games to choose from. Let's make them count.


Total Free Throws Made For Pau Gasol
Over 3.5 -145
Under 3.5 +115

This is a very easy one as the NBA odds indicate. Gasol will have to deal with young upstart, Hassan Whiteside. While Whiteside is a beast on the boards and a force to be reckoned with, he has the tendency to get into foul trouble. 3.5 shots are not a lot for Gasol who is a player that can take the ball to the hole with finesse. Over is the play.

NBA Pick- Over 3.5 -145


Total Points For Jimmy Butler
Over 19.5 -105
Under 19.5 -125

This game should be very competitive as Miami wants to stay in the playoff race. Therefore, there's no issue with Butler playing the 4th quarter. While Butler has been a sensational young talent, the Bulls are a very deep team and the ball get's spread around. In Butler's last 3 games, he's scored below 19.5 points. Expect to see 16 to 18 points for this young upstart, but we'll have to take the under despite his talent.

NBA Pick- Under 19.5 -125

Total Rebounds and Assists For Mike Dunleavy
Over 15.5 -125
Under 15.5 -105

This one is very easy after watching Dunleavy yesterday. He had a rather good outing, but played near to nothing in the 2nd quarter and saw very little action at the end of the game due to the emergence of Taj Gibson off of the bench. The Bulls covet Gibson much more than they do Dunleavy. This will force us to choose the under as our betting pick.

NBA Pick- Under 15.5 -105


Total Points For Goran Dragic
Over 17.5 -115
Under 17.5 -115

Dragic is finally starting to feel comfortable in South Beach. He can take the pressure off of Dwayne Wade and if he want's to take the shot, it's there for him. In his last 3 games, Dragic has scored over 17.5 points on 2 occasions and is coming off of 28 point monster performance against a weak Charlotte team. Over is the obvious NBA pick for Dragic.

NBA Pick- Over 17.5 -115

Total Points For Stephen Curry
Over 23.5 -125
Under 23,5 -105

I don't think that Curry is as motivated for an MVP Award as some of the other candidates.Other guys such as James Harden and Russell Westbrook look to pad their stats while Curry goes with the flow.

Did any of you see Curry nearly break CP3's ankles? We're talking about one of the best defensive players in the league in Chris Paul. The next time that they meet up, CP3 might need Cliff Paul to replace him, because Steph made him look straight up stupid.

This is a player that could score 30 points anytime that he wants but looks to fit into the Golden State offense. My only concern is Steve Kerr resting Curry and a bunch of the starters, knowing that Golden State is #1 in the playoffs. I will take the risk as this guy can light it up at the drop of a hat and 23.5 points are reasonable to obtain. Take the over as your betting pick
