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.
Season Recap: 10-8
Fresh off a 3-0 sweep on December 28th, 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.
Deandre Ayton Under 15.5 Points (-116) vs. Pelicans
This is a prove it game for Ayton. He has to show me he can do this. His under is 3-0 on the year and I am trying to get that to 4-0. The Suns don’t play through him and he rarely gets up shots. Steven Adams is a good defender. I’m taking his under until he proves to me he’s worthy of me picking his over.
Russell Westbrook Over 40.5 PTs+REBs+ASTs (-115)
Vegas is going to have to start respecting my man Russell. Like I said in an earlier article, he is back to his stat padding ways. He’s a walking triple double and that’ll be what he is for the entire season. Russell is going to average 22-25 points per game and he is easily capable of picking up 18 rebounds and assists combined, especially against a team like the Bulls. Westbrook gets this done easily.
Bam Adebayo Under 19.5 points (-122) vs. Bucks
You won’t meet a bigger Bam Adebayo fan than myself. Bam is one of my favorite players to watch, but I also know 19.5 is too high for him. His player prop should be consistently 16.5 and then it’s a toss up depending on the matchup. In this scenario, the matchup is why I chose his under. He will be tasked with guarding Giannis all game and that’s exhausting in itself. All it takes is a little early foul trouble and he won’t even sniff this over.
Those are my 3 favorite NBA player props to bet on December 29th. Here’s to hoping we bank together!
