NBA Player Props: 3 Bets to Make On Opening Night

NBA Player Props

NBA Player Props! The NBA Season is back. It feels good to see all the teams back in action. This is my daily article breaking down the 3 best player props to bet each and every night of the NBA season. I’ll keep track of my record as the season progresses. Let’s get into it.

Note: I am using the lines set by FanDuel Sportsbook.


My 3 Favorite NBA Player Props to Bet On Opening Night:

Stephen Curry Over 27.5 Points (-118)

Feels like years since we last watched Curry play a meaningful NBA game. He will come back in a big way. He’s the focal point of this Warriors offense and they are going to need him to score to stay in games. When Curry is shooting 20+ times, he is as close a lock to score at least 28 points. This is why he is my favorite NBA Player Prop to bet on Opening Night.


Kawhi Leonard Over 25.5 points (-128)

In the 4 games against the Lakers last year, Kawhi hit 27+ points in all of them. A perfect 4-0 for this player prop. People are counting the Clippers out after their disappointing year last year. Kawhi says not so fast. While I don’t believe the Clippers are better than the Lakers, I could certainly see them winning thanks to a huge effort by Kawhi Leonard. He’s been looking forward to this game for months and I say he starts his season in a big way. Take this NBA Player Prop to the bank!


Montrezl Harrell Over 13.5 points (-122)

Revenge Game! Montrezl has revenge on his mind as he gets to play against his former team. He’s going to be one of the main scorers on this Lakers second unit. He was disappointing in the playoffs last year, and has something to prove. I never bet against Harrell because he can easily score 20 points any given night. He wants to show the Clippers organization what he’s made of. I also don’t see LeBron and AD playing big minutes right out the gate, so Harrell will have even more time on the court to shine. Give me his over in a no sweat bet.


And those are my favorite NBA player props to bet on Opening Night. Record is 0-0-0. After tonight, it will be 3-0-0. Let’s do it!
