Time for our latest NBA props piece, which has been receiving excellent reviews. This has to due largely with one facet basketball bettors consider very important, it's called winning.
Not many recreational bettors have the time in the middle of the day to go over the NBA odds and do the necessary research to find props opportunities. Thus, a few times a week we like to hopefully help you out and take the guess work out of the process and let our experts do the work for you and you can choose from what you like.
While we do not win all the time, we have nailed 20 of our last 31 plays, which is at 64.5 percent clip, which will build any bankroll no matter how much you wager.
For NBA picks on props, these are the four we like best.
Bucks vs. Hawks - Milwaukee Over/Under 97.5 Total Points (-110)
The only prop we missed the other day was on Milwaukee, as they went Over their game total. Though the Bucks have lost three in a row, they have been proficient on the offensive end, making at least 52 percent of shots in these recent games. Having scored 117 and 108 points against Atlanta this season, we think Milwaukee can continue to pile up the points if they utilize the same strategy versus the Hawks. The Bucks did not shoot even 45 percent in either game, but what they did is attack the basket and in those two contests they took a total of 69 free throws, which helped them build points during dead ball situations. With coach Jason Kidd's team averaging 102.6 PPG after two or more consecutive losses, take the OVER.
Prop Play - Bucks Over 97.5 Total Points
Raptors vs. Rockets -Largest Lead Over /Under 15.5 Points (-115)
With this conflict listed as a Pick, having a real hard time imaging either team builds a substantial lead in this encounter. Toronto coach Don Casey has said resting players is a priority in the last 12 games of the season, wanting to be ready for the playoffs, thus hard to imagine the Raptors pull to big lead. Houston, well, they show little desire to want to play four quarters of basketball, especially on defense, making it almost impossible they will take charge at any point.
Prop Play - Play Under for Lead of 15.5 Points
Nuggets vs. Lakers - Denver Covers -1.5 First Half (-110)
Denver has won five in a row at the Staples Center as visitors against the L.A. Lakers, beating the spread each time. Coming off a victory as a favorite over Philadelphia, the Nuggets are 11-3 ATS against the first half line after a win when handing out points. The Lakers fall into numerous bad situations, like being 7-17 ATS versus the first half line revenging a loss where opponent scored 110 or more points. The real deal-maker ends up being Los Angeles is 0-7 ATS against the first half line after two straight games where both teams scored 100 points or more this season, trailing at 12.7 PPG after two quarters.
Prop Play - Denver to Cover -1.5 Points at the Half
Mavericks vs. Warriors - K. Thompson Over/Under 29 Points-Rebounds-Assists (-110)
Most sportsbooks take a players season averages to determine a fair number on these kinds of props. Though it is not a magical, when you look at the recent form of the player and consider the opponent and total on the game, this is where opportunity can exist. In Klay Thompson's past 10 games, if total up these three segments, you arrive at 30.6 for a total. If you drill down a little further, in his last five visits to the floor, he's been even better at 31.4. Rarely do you see props with decisive edges one way or the other as books are trying to entice bettors with relatable products. With Golden State's recent 9-2 SU and ATS against Dallas and the total at 225, we have a lot of numbers in our favor.
