Check out our very profitable NBA Player Props as they're sure to benefit the bettor and produce a profit especially since some team's backs are against the wall and desperately need a win.

Total Points For Dirk Nowitzki
Over 19 -135
Under 19 +105
This is a simple case of the jockey putting the whip to the horse as Nowitzki has played 71 minutes in his last 2 games. This is a far cry from the PT that Dirk had been getting all season long. The bottom line is Dallas needs offense to defeat Houston and the only way to do that is with a 20 point effort from Dirk. I'm not going to look at his past performances. This is a must win situation for Dallas and Dirk won't disappoint the home town fans.

NBA Props Pick: Over 19 -135

1st Quarter Points For James Harden
Over 7.5 -140
Under 7.5 +110
I can see Harden, who has had a relatively quiet series for him, averaging 24 points in his last 2 games, coming very quickly out of the gate and going for the jugular. I'm not usually interested in 1st quarter NBA picks, but I don't think this is one of those games where Dallas comes out fast and Houston calls a quick time out. Dallas will have to work for this win and James Harden has an opportunity to show why he's one of the best players in the league.

NBA Props Pick:  Over 7.5 -140

 

Total Points For James Harden
Over 27.5 -135
Under 27.5 +105
As I stated earlier, Harden had back to back games of 24 points and those are coonsidered subpar to Harden's standards. Houston is the far superior team and Harden is an MVP candidate .There's nobody on defense that can stop James Harden, including Tyson Chandler. Harden will have no problem dropping 30 on the Mavs at American Airlines Arena.

NBA Props Pick: Over 

 

Total Assists For John Wall
Over 10 -115
Under 10 -115
It's quite obvious that the Toronto Raptors are a regular season team. This means that they'll put up 50 plus wins during the regular season and lead their division and then come up short in the playoffs.

John Wall is by far the most talented player in this game. He needs to take more initiative like he did in his last game as he poured in 26 points to go along with 17 assists. A lot also depends on the offensive efficiency of his teammates. If he can't count on other players to convert their field goals, he's going to score and look for his shot more. Now, that the Wizards are in control of this series, look for him to defer a bit more and eclipse the 10 assist mark.

NBA Props Pick:  Over 10 -115

 

Total Points For DeMar DeRozan
Over 21.5 -125
Under 21.5 -105
DeRozan is more of a pure scorer than rebounder and assist man, but he's been a jack of all trades as of late. What this does is lower his point total (which is still good). If other guys such as Kyle Lowry aren't converting, it's up to DeRozan and he can only do so much.

Thus far, DeMar DeRozan is averaging 17.5 points per game in this series, but it's only been 2 games. This is the pivotal game and Toronto must have a 20 plus point game from their star. In an expected high scoring game, DeRozan should score 20 points easily, but 21.5 is a bit high as the prop total as the NBA odds makers are making the bettors squirm. Take the under as I'm playing off of the odds as I'm not "expecting" DeRozan to score 22 points although it's quite possible that he may do so.

NBA Props Pick: Under 21.5 -105 at Bovada
