NBA action is fast and furious as teams want to advance to the next round, one step closer to the NBA Title. Today, we have some appealing player props on a 3-game slate. Let's make a dash for the cash with our appealing betting picks.
Total Points + Rebounds + Assists For Deron Williams
Over 24.5 -125
Under 24.5 -105
The Nets have run into a team that's had the biggest turnaround from last year in the Atlanta Hawks. They may not possess an elite superstar, but what they know how to do is work as a cohesive unit. While the Nets are an improving team, they're not at the level of Atlanta and a game in Atlanta will be a major battle.
Where Deron Williams is concerned, we all know his story. He was supposed to be a franchise player since coming over from Utah and never has lived up to the billing. His shot hasn't been failing him and if you look at this overall numbers, even his assists have taken a dramatic drop. The under is the play in this game. I keep waiting for D. Will to break out but he rarely ever does.
NBA Player Props Pick: Under 24.5 -105
Total Point For Joe Johnson
Over 16 -115
Under 16 -115
I can say the same exact thing about Joe Johnson that I said about Williams. The only difference is consistency. From Johnson, you'll get a big money shot to win a game, but he can't sustain the overall production for the entire game.
He's capable of putting up 30 points and also capable of scoring a 2 spot. In his last 2 games, he's stepped up a bit, scoring 16 and 17 points. If D. Will doesn't produce, JJ is more likely to put up some points. I'm going to give Johnson the benefit of the doubt here being that he's playing his old team in an important game for Brooklyn on the road.
NBA Player Props Pick: Over 16 -115
Total Points For Damian Lillard
Over 21 -115
Under 21 -115
It appears to me that Damian Lillard just hasn't been the same player since initially not being voted into the All-Star Game. This is still a very good player on a good team and I think that he will regain his consistent scoring ability in time. Lately, Lillard has been unproductive with 3 consecutive games of under 20 points. In his last 3 games, Lillard has averaged about 14 points per game. The deciding factor in this prop is Lillard's opponent. The Memphis Grizzlies have the best defense in the NBA. The under is a "slam dunk" where this prop is concerned.
NBA Player Props Pick: Under 21 -115
Total Points for LaMarcus Aldridge
Over 24.5 -135
Under 24.5 +105
If I was asked any other time, I would take the under on this prop. Aldridge is a 2nd tier star in this league that puts up a regular double-double and scores slightly over 20 points per game. NBA odds makers have raised the total due to Aldridge's 35 point game against the Grizzlies in his last game. It would be pretty difficult to fade the over considering how well that he played in his last game. Reluctantly, I'm taking the over.
NBA Player Props Pick: Over 24.5 -135
Total Rebounds For Zach Randolph
Over 10.5 -125
Under 10.5 -105
Randolph is a walking double-double and has been for his entire career. Zebo is coming off of an 11 rebound effort against Portland in his last game and I think that we're going to see 15 points and 11 rebounds all series long. It will make for a nailbiter, but the big man can clean the glass. Bettors must lean towards the over with their NBA picks for a productive player such as this.
