Every day I share my picks for NBA Player Prop Betting. One of my favorite times of the day are when these odds are released; so let's get to work with Wednesday's money-makers.
Total Points + Rebounds For Greg Monroe
Over 27.5 -115
Under 27.5 -115
Monroe has been flatout in beast mode lately with a double-double in 6 out of his last 8 games and just missing in the other two games. Monroe has been eclipsing the prop total on a regular basis and possibly playing the best basketball of his career. That said, he's coming off of one of his weaker performances with a 12 point, 9 rebound effort against the Heat. Monroe plays a rather weak Indiana team tonight and should easily reach the over for this prop.
NBA Player Props Pick- Over 27.5 -115
Total Points For Paul Millsap
Over 16.5 -105
Under 16.5 -125
Odds makers make a slight adjustment for Millsap and lower this prop due to his back to back 15 point performances. I see it as a gift as Millsap has had an outstanding season, leading the Atlanta Hawks to the best record in the NBA at 40-9. Look for Millsap to shine at home against a fast-paced Washington team. This is an easy over.
NBA Player Props Pick- Over 16.5 -105
Total Points For Kyle Korver
Over 12.5 -115
Under 12.5 -115
Korver is a player that often gets overlooked as he's a consistent veteran scorer for the Hawks that can drill a shot from anywhere on the court. In his last 4 out of 5 games, he's scored 17 points or more and 12 points or more in his last 8 out of 9 games. For some reason, people get worried because we're talking about Kyle Korver. I say no need to worry; the guy rarely disappoints, and tonight against the Wizards will be no different.
NBA Player Props Pick- Over 12.5 -115
Total Assists For Ty Lawson
Over 9.5 -125
Under 9.5 -105
Lawson has been a bit inconsistent as of late, but let's not forget that he averages 10 assists per game. It appears that Lawson looks to defer to his teammates when he plays the weaker teams such as Philly last night and when he plays the tougher teams, he looks to score more.
Tonight, he plays a weak team in Boston that lacks mobility. Guys like Jared Sullinger would much rather be in the paint and lay the ball in as he did last night against the Knicks. Bottom line is that Boston is a weak team. Look for Lawson to get others involved and that means a high assist total. Over is the NBA Pick.
NBA Player Props Pick - Over 9.5 -125
Total Points For Nikola Vucevic
Over 17.5 -130
Under 17.5- EV
Vucevic gets a matchup in San Antonio against the Spurs and if this was a post-season game, I'd be all over the under. It's not the playoffs and the Spurs main objective during the regular season is to keep their veterans healthy. In other words, the win total is not of great concern to Gregg Popovich as long as he makes the playoffs.
Vucevic is turning into a bonafide superstar, averaging nearly 20 points per game and 11.2 rebounds per game. Tobias Harris' offense has really been suffering lately and this allows other players to pad their stats. That said, Victor Oladipo is back in the lineup and this prop should be close to the 17.5 mark as provided.Vucevic's greatness is really starting to show. It doesn't matter if it's the Spurs or the Memphis Grizzlies, he'll get his points. Take the over.
