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.

Season Recap: 2-1-0
Not Bad for Opening Night but we can do better. Check that article out here to see who I missed. Let’s hop into my favorite 3 NBA Player Props on December 23rd, 2020.
Russell Westbrook Over 40.5 Pts+Reb+Ast (-106)
Russell Westbrook is back to his stat padding days. In Houston, he wasn’t able to stat pad like he used to. The Wizards and Scott Brooks will give him that opportunity again. He’s going to be their primary ball handler and run this offense and get Bradley Beal open shots. 40.5 is not that high for a player known for recording triple doubles. Russell has a big game in his debut with the Wizards. Book it.
Giannis Antetokounmpo Over 28.5 points (-116)
The two time reigning MVP is going to come out and put the league on notice that he wants to three peat. The Celtics don’t match up particularly well against Giannis. Giannis hit this over in 2 of 3 games against Boston last year. He disappointed people with his playoffs performance but he is here to put that behind him. Giannis gets 30 with ease tonight. This prop needs to be a little higher going forward.
Ja Morant Over 21.5 points (-104)
Ja Morant is going to have a big year this year and it starts with a big first game. Morant gives me ‘pre-injury’ Derrick Rose vibes and that means he will take a big step forward this year. Morant knows he has to be aggressive to win games. Also, Ja Morant has scored 22+ points in each of his last two games against the San Antonio Spurs and he will make it 3 tonight. We are about to watch Morant’s coming out party. Bet this NBA player prop while it is still this low. Later in the season, this one will be 24.5-26.5 points like the true star that Morant is. Give me the free money.
And those are my favorite NBA player props to bet on December 23, 2020. Let’s go 3-0 tonight to really set the tone for a dominat year. Let’s do it!
