NBA Player Props! The NBA Season is back, and it’s Christmas! Merry Christmas to all. 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.

NBA Player Props: Season Recap: 5-1.
Fresh off a 3-0 sweep on Wednesday. Don’t believe me? Check out the old article here for proof: NBA Player Props – December 23rd
We have some money to make. Let’s hop into my favorite NBA Player Props to bet on Christmas day.
Caris LeVert Over 15.5 points (-118) vs. Celtics
Put some respect on LeVert’s name. He’s my frontrunner for 6th Man of the Year. Caris is a walking bucket. He dropped 20 in the first game of the season and he will continue to average 18-20 of the bench. He’s their main scorer and facilitator for the second unit and the Celtics second unit is uninspiring. Caris brings us a little Christmas cheer with a big performance.
Luka Doncic Over 30.5 points (-120) vs. Lakers
Luka started his MVP campaign with a 32 point performance in a loss against the Suns. He’s going to average over 30 points this season easily. The Lakers are easing their way into the season and they are fine letting Luka beat them. Luka has to carry this Mavericks offense without Porzingis. He easily will score over 30 points and cash his player prop.
Zion Williamson Under 24.5 points (-122) vs. Heat
I am as big of a Zion fan there is, and he made me a lot of money last year cashing his player props. Watching Zion, you know he struggles against long, athletic wings and shot blockers: insert Bam Adebayo. They will likely guard Zion with Moe Harkless (who doesn’t scare me) but trust me, Bam is lurking and ready to give help defense. Zion will be forced to pass it or attempt a contested shot over Adebayo. Zion will still get his points, and if he hits his over, good for him. I welcome a big Zion game on Christmas Day, but I don’t think it is in the cards.
Those are my 3 favorite NBA player props to bet on Christmas Day. Here’s to hoping we bank together!
