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. Also, these are just my thoughts and opinions. I am not responsible for any loss of money, or broken items in rage.
Player Props are my favorite thing to bet on. We are positive on the year, but I look to become more consistent with 3-0 and 2-1 days. Let’s do this!
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander Over 31.5 PTs+REBs+ASTs (-115)
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is going to carry this Thunder team throughout the season. They are going to be bad, but he will be one of their lone bright spots. In their only game this year, SGA put up 24 pts, 7 rebs, 9 asts. easily cashing this player prop. SGA has to do everything for this team, and we aren’t even asking for that much. Take advantage of this player prop now because by the end of the season, the line will be at 37.5 or above.
James Harden Over 47.5 PTs+REBs+ASTs (-115) vs. Nuggets
James Harden is ridiculous. He opened his season with a casual 44 points and 17 assists. Not bad for a guy constantly making headlines with his trade rumors. Harden is still a bad man, and the Rockets need him to carry this team. With Wall, Gordon and Cousins all out because of COVID Protocol, it is just Harden and Christian Wood out there scoring the ball. Harden will score or assist enough to hit 48 combined points, rebounds and assists. No doubt about that.
Trae Young Over 28.5 points (-125) vs. Pistons
Trae Young started his season with 36 and 37 points in back to back games. He’s become a true free throw ‘cheeser’ constantly piling up the free throws. The Pistons will have no answer for him on the defensive end. The Pistons are fresh off giving up 32 points to Collin Sexton. Trae will hit 30 with ease, and I guarantee 10-15 of those points come from the free throw line. There’s a reason Trae was my Darkhorse MVP candidate. Looking better and better as the days go on.
Those are my 3 favorite NBA player props to bet on December 28th. Here’s to hoping we bank together!
