We have a shortened 4 day schedule for the NBA as March Madness begins. Check out what NBA player prop picks that we think can fill your pockets.

How Many Point Will Kevin Durant Score?
Over 33.5 -125
Under 33.5 -105
KD can put 40 up on any team on any given night. In his last game against a Chicago Bulls defense, he scored 35 points. That said, 33.5 is a very tall order and as long as the Thunder are at full strength, I’m inclined to go with the under.
Pick- Under 33.5 -105

How Many Rebounds and Blocks Will Serge Ibaka Have?
Over 12 -130
Under 12 – EVEN
Normally, I would say that this is an easy over, but although Ibaka’s scoring total has remained the same, he’s averaged just 5 rebounds in his last 2 games. I like the odds and take the under.
Pick- Under 12- EVEN

How Many Points Will Kevin Love Score?
Over 27.5 – 125
Under 27.5 -105
This is a dream matchup for K. Love as he faces a high powered Houston Rockets offense who will be without the services of center Dwight Howard due to an ankle injury. Nikola Pekovic will be cautious after getting thrown out of yesterday’s game against Dallas. Look for Love to go point-crazy as the Wolves need a win here.
Pick – Over 27.5 -125

How Many Points Will Kevin Martin Have?
Over 20.5 -115
Under 20.5 -115
Martin has always been a scorer and nothing else when he played with the Kings and the Rockets. He hit a really rough patch with Houston and was never looked at as the same player again. That said, he’s been a good fit with Minnesota. There could be a revenge factor here as he plays his old team at the Toyota Center. Grab the over.
Pick- Over 20.5 -115

How Many Points Will James Harden Score?
Over 27 -125
Under 27 -105
This might be my favorite play on the board because without Dwight Howard, the burden of the offensive duties will rest upon the shoulders of the beard. Look for Harden to hoist up many shots, therefore eclipsing the 27 point plateau.
Pick- Over 27 -125

Total Rebounds and Assists For James Harden
Over 11 -115
Under 11-115
This and the previous prop go hand in hand. Harden won’t be looking to pass the ball. He’ll be counted on to shoot and score. I could see some rebounding from Harden, but am not expecting much passing. Take the under.
Pick- Under 11 -115

Total Points For Nicolas Batum
Over 16 -125
Under 16 -105
This is a player that has been playing the best basketball of his career with LaMarcus Aldridge out of the lineup. Aldridge has returned and Batum will need to make some adjustments. I think his recent play has given him great confidence. He’s scored 21 or more points in his last 3 games and I’m going to roll with the over.
Pick- Over 16 -125

Total Points For Ramon Sessions
Over 12.5 -125
Under 12.5 -105
Sessions plays for the worst team and comes off of the bench. His Bucks are a 13 point underdog against the Warriors and they will need points from somewhere. Sessions has scored 14 or more points in his last 3 games and expect the streak to continue after a 23 point performance against Portland.
Pick- Over 12.5 -125

Good luck, everyone!
