First and foremost, Happy New Year! It’s 2021 and we still have NBA Player Props! 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: 18-9
NBA Player Props have been an easy way to make some money. We have been hot taking advantage of the lines that Vegas is setting for us.
Let’s see if we can stay hot.
Bradley Beal Over 29.5 points (-110) vs. Timberwolves
The Wizards are not off to a good start. They are 0-5 and one of only two teams without a win this year (hello Pistons!). But without Russell Westbrook tonight, Beal knows he has to put this team on his back. When Westbrook rested earlier this year, Beal got up 29 shots. I expect a similar outcome tonight with 25+ shots taken. He should be easily able to get 30 points in a must win game against the Timberwolves.
Nikola Jokic Over 42.5 pts+rebs+asts (-113) vs. Suns
Vegas is disrespectful with this line. The Joker has cashed this player prop in every game this season and it won’t stop now. I am not afraid of Deandre Ayton on the offensive or defensive side of the ball. Jokic will get to camp in the paint and rack up rebounds while also putting up points and assists on the other end. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Give me the Joker to easily hit 43 combined stats. No doubt about it.
Luka Doncic Under 46.5 pts+rebs+asts (-108) vs. Heat
It’s no secret, Luka has struggled to start the season. He is shooting 9% from 3 and he just doesn’t look like himself. I am waiting for his breakout game, but I don’t think it happens tonight. Assuming Jimmy Butler plays, this Heat team is known for their defense. Spoelstra is a good coach and will make it difficult for Luka to score and get to the rim. 47 combined points, rebounds and assists is just too high for me. Take the under like we did a couple days ago and cashed easily.
Those are my 3 favorite NBA player props to bet on New Years Day. Here’s to hoping we bank together!
