We have an abbreviated 3 games schedule in the NBA for Thursday, but there’s still plenty of opportunity to profit with the daily NBA picks and betting player props which are offered.

Total Points For James Harden?

Over 25.5 -125

Under 25.5 -105

Even when a superstar faces the Chicago Bulls in the hostile environment known as the United Center and has to deal with the likes of Joakim Noah, I’m leaning towards the over.

In this instance, James Harden has been on a tear as of late, scoring 28 points or more in his last 4 games and dominating his old team, the Oklahoma City Thunder. Make the exception here and take the over.

Pick- Over 25.5 -125

Total points for Dwight Howard

Over 18.5 -115

Under 18.5 -115

Dwight Howard has played well since joining the Rockets, but overall he lacks that consistency that he once had with the Orlando Magic. He’ll be facing a bunch of trees in the middle in the Bulls defense. Take the under in this spot.

Pick- Under -115

Total Rebounds + Assists for Joakim Noah

Over 17.5 -125

Under 17.5 -105

Noah is an intangibles-high energy player whose points come off of hustle. He’ll want to slow down the action against a high scoring group such as the Rockets. In doing so, look for him to be more defensive-minded and looking to set up other players. The over looks good here.

Pick- 17.5 Over -125

Total points and Rebounds for Carlos Boozer

Over 22.5 -125

Under 22.5 -105

Boozer is a real enigma. Some games he dominates, other games he’s non-existent, and Coach T. never allows him to play the 4th quarter no matter how well he plays. I can’t feel confident about a player like that. With Taj Gibson and Jimmy Butler in the mix, Boozer’s numbers are taking a nosedive. Take the under.

Pick- Under 22.5 -105

Total points for Paul Millsap

Over 17.5 -115

Under 17.5 -115

Millsap has just come back from an injury a few games ago and is starting to get back into the swing of things. He’s coming off of a 23 point performance at Utah, but we have to remember that Utah is an inexperienced squad. Tonight he faces another bottom-feeder in the Milwaukee Bucks and the over seems appealing.

Pick- Over 17.5 -115

Total points for Pau Gasol

 Over 19 – Even

Under 19 -130

Pau Gasol has scored 20 points or more in 6 consecutive games. The only issue here is that he’s playing the Oklahoma City Thunder. I don’t think that this will affect his offensive production. Take the over.

Pick- Over 19 – Even

Total points for Jodie Meeks

Over 18 – Even

Under 18 – 130

Meeks is coming off of a huge 42 point effort in which he couldn’t miss against OKC at the Staples Center. I’m expecting the Thunder to pay the Lakers back for the embarrassing national tv loss and that includes Jodie Meeks. 18 points is a lot for Meeks, take the under.

Pick- Under 18 -130

Total points for Kevin Durant

Over 33.5 -115

Under 33.5 -115

This is a player that plays with a lot of confidence and pride. He’s the best pure scorer and shooter in the league and he’ll be looking to pay the Lakers back. 33.5 points is a lot, but not for KD. Take the over.

Pick- Over 33.5 -115

Good luck, everyone!
