Tonight's NBA player props have finally hit the boards, so join us as we run over the betting lines and share our favorite NBA picks.

Total Points For "Melo" Anthony
Over 26.5 -115
Under 26 -115
This is an interesting prop because it's taken a bit of time for Carmelo to get adjusted to the triangle offense implemented by Phil Jackson. In his first game of the season, he had only 14 points, but has steadily risen to 28 points against Charlotte. Now, he faces a young, talented team in the Washington Wizards, and with so many sources of offense, bettors can expect a very up and down game. Sometimes the Knicks don't execute the triangle properly and this sets Melo up for some one on one. For that reason we believe that the NBA odds have been set a bit low and Carmelo should easily reach the 27 point mark.

Pick- Over -115

 

Total Points For James Harden
Over 26.5 -115
Under 26.5 -115
This is a no-brainer. Harden faces a gamed Miami Heat team without LeBron James, but Houston has been without Patrick Beverly and Dwight Howard is very unselfish offensively. As for Harden, he's a selfish player and it works to your benefit here.

Pick- Over 26.5 -115

 

Total Points For Lebron James
Over 27.5 -115
Under 27.5 -115
Normally I would go with the under on this because LBJ needs to "spread the Love"; Kevin Love that is along with Kyrie Irving. In this case, I feel differently as James goes out west to play a tough Portland starting 5 in which Lebron's production will be vital. Look for Lebron to be the primary scorer as Kevin Love controls the glass. With the King looking to shoot, we believe that 'Over' 27.5 looks to be a promising selection for our NBA picks tonight.

Pick- Over 27.5 -115

 

Total Points + Rebounds For Anthony Davis
Over 33.5 -115
Under 33.5 -115
In his last game, Davis had his hands full with the best defensive team in the league, the Memphis Grizzlies. Against Charlotte, Davis won't have to worry about the oversized Marc Gasol. Instead, he'll be dealing with Al Jefferson, who is looking to score. Take the over with confidence, as Davis could possibly be the best player currently in the game.

Pick- Over 33.5 -115

 

Total Points For LaMarcus Aldridge
Over 24.5 -115
Under 24.5 -115
There is no doubt that Aldridge is one of the top 15 players in the league today, and LaMarcus has proven that he can take over any game. That said, I expect him to be intimidated by the presence of not just LeBron James, but Kevin Love, who likes to camp out in the paint. Look for a respectable performance, but not a breakout game from Aldridge tonight.

Pick- Under 24.5 -115

 

Total Points For Robin Lopez
Over 10.5 -115
Under 10.5 -115
Lopez is a vastly improved basketball player, but the matchup against Anderson Varajeo and the Cleveland Cavaliers won't benefit him. Lopez is a bit inconsistent, as he can provide 15 points and 6 rebounds in one night, only to score 5 points in his next outting. I think this is one of those games in which he collects rebounds, but has a low scoring output.

Pick- Under 10.5 -115
