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.
<p><b style="font-size:1em"><a target="_blank" title="NBA Picks: Rockets vs. Bulls" href="/nba-basketball/free-picks/pick-bulls-cover-home-vs-rockets-a-38062/">Total Points For James Harden?</a></b></p> <p><b>Over 25.5 -125</b></p> <p><b>Under 25.5 -105</b></p> <p>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.</p> <p>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.</p> <p><b>Pick- Over 25.5 -125</b></p> <p><b>Total points for Dwight Howard</b></p> <p><b>Over 18.5 -115</b></p> <p><b>Under 18.5 -115</b></p> <p>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.</p> <p><b>Pick- Under -115</b></p> <p style="text-align:center"><em>Check out SBR's <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="NBA Prop Bet Directory" href="">NBA Prop Bet Directory</a></em></p> <p><b>Total Rebounds + <a target="_blank" title="Is Noah the next Rodman?" href="">Assists for Joakim Noah</a></b></p> <p><b>Over 17.5 -125</b></p> <p><b>Under 17.5 -105</b></p> <p>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.</p> <p><b>Pick- 17.5 Over -125</b></p> <p><b>Total points and Rebounds for Carlos Boozer</b></p> <p><b>Over 22.5 -125</b></p> <p><b>Under 22.5 -105</b></p> <p>Boozer is a real enigma. Some games he dominates, other games he’s non-existent, and Coach T. never allows him to play the 4<sup>th</sup> 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.</p> <p><b>Pick- Under 22.5 -105</b></p> <p><b><a target="_blank" title="NBA Picks: Bucks vs. Hawks" href="/nba-basketball/free-picks/nba-picks-bucks-9-5-vs-hawks-a-38069/">Total points for Paul Millsap</a></b></p> <p><b>Over 17.5 -115</b></p> <p><b>Under 17.5 -115</b></p> <p>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.</p> <p><b>Pick- Over 17.5 -115</b></p> <p style="text-align:center"><em>Check out the latest <a target="_blank" title="NBA Championship Betting Odds" href="">NBA Championship Betting Odds</a></em></p> <p><b><a target="_blank" title="NBA Picks: Lakers vs. Thunder" href="/nba-basketball/free-picks/nba-picks-predictions-lakers-vs-thunder-a-38070/">Total points for Pau Gasol</a></b></p> <p><b> Over 19 – Even</b></p> <p><b>Under 19 -130</b></p> <p>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.</p> <p><b>Pick- Over 19 – Even</b></p> <p><b>Total points for Jodie Meeks</b></p> <p><b>Over 18 – Even</b></p> <p><b>Under 18 – 130</b></p> <p>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.</p> <p><b>Pick- Under 18 -130</b></p> <p><b>Total points for Kevin Durant</b></p> <p><b>Over 33.5 -115</b></p> <p><b>Under 33.5 -115</b></p> <p>This is a player that <a target="_blank" title="Is KD on a mission for the MVP and Title?" href="">plays with a lot of confidence and pride</a>. 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.</p> <p><b>Pick- Over 33.5 -115</b></p> <p><b>Good luck, everyone!</b></p>
