With a busy NBA schedule on Wednesday, it's time to look into our best options for NBA prop bets. This is not for the faint of heart and it is often like an NCAA Tournament game, it comes down to the wire.
However, that is not to say there are not opportunities, you just have to know what doors to open and do the research. While we do not win all the time, we are over 62 percent in last 27 posted NBA picks for props here at sportsbookreview.com, which is making money for me and all followers.
Let's get after the NBA odds with these prop wagers, which are the four I like best.
Bucks vs. Cavaliers - Milwaukee Over/Under 98 Total Points (-110) What are we to make of Cleveland, as LeBron's behavior gets odder by the day. The Cavaliers play is like a rollercoaster, but tonight they have should hold Milwaukee below oddmakers total points. Throw away another weird loss at Miami and the Cavs have permitted 95.2 points per contest in other five most recent games. After looking like their offense was coming around, the Bucks are back in the doldrums and have averaged 90.2 PPG in their last four outings. With Milwaukee 11-1 UNDER versus teams making 46 percent or more of their shots in the second half of the season the last three seasons, expect them to fail to reach 98 points at Cleveland.
Prop Play - Bucks Under 98 Total Points
Heat vs. Spurs -San Antonio Over/Under 104 Total Points (-115)
After squandering 23-point second quarter lead at Charlotte and only registering 60 points in the final three quarters, San Antonio is back home. Maybe it was the residue from win over Golden State and taking for granted situation after building huge lead, but I do not think the Spurs will lack the same focus at home. Fully expect the San Antonio offensive to be back to normal at home, where they average 104.4 PPG, even against Miami's fine defense, which is fourth in the NBA in points allowed. The Spurs have averaged 106.9 PPG having won four of their past five and surpass 104 points late for this prop winner.
Prop Play - Spurs Over 104 Total Points
Magic vs. Pistons - First Team to Score 20 Points
Detroit has been an excellent home team all season at 22-12 and 20-12-2 ATS and I would expect that to continue this evening with them getting off to another strong start against Orlando. The Magic have ended up covering rather large spreads of late, falling behind and rallying in the second half to beat the number. Nonetheless, they have still lost eight of 10 and have not immediately gotten into the flow of many contests as underdogs early which is why the Pistons are a safe bet to hit 20 points first.
Prop Play - Pistons First Team to Score 20 Points (-140)
Knicks vs. Bulls - New York to Cover First Half at +4.5 (-110)
New York has shot under 40 percent in three consecutive games and has failed to win or cover the spread. However, Chicago is a notoriously poor home team and I will play a hunch the Knicks will show some pride (already working the rosary on this one) since they are 27-12 ATS against the first half line on the road when the first half total is 100.5 to 105.5 the last three seasons. Let's also not forget the Bulls have been busy and are 6-17 ATS at the United Center versus the first half line when playing six or more games in 10 days the past two years, losing by 2.7 points at halftime.
Prop Play - Knicks +5 for First Half
