NBA Player Prop Picks (4/20/23)
The first batch of Game 3s kicks off on Thursday, April 20, 2023, with the Philadelphia 76ers versus the Brooklyn Nets, the Golden State Warriors versus Sacramento Kings, and the Phoenix Suns versus the Los Angeles Clippers. Check out the list of best bets and player props featuring Kevon Looney, Joel Embiid, and Chris Paul.
Chris Paul u1.5 Steals (+110)
Here is another plus-odds bet that is attractive. Chris Paul is known for his lightning-quick hands; he has a career 2.1 steals per game average throughout his 18-year NBA career, according to his Lineups player profile.
However, he has not been recording as many steals in recent games. In his past 11 games, he has had one or fewer steals eight times, demonstrating this claim.
Further, Russell Westbrook has actually done a great job of protecting the ball, only turning the ball over five times through the first two games. If Paul is not getting on-ball steals, it may be difficult for him to wind up with two, and at plus-odds, that is a chance we are willing to take.
Joel Embiid o1.5 Blocks (-120)
In the first two games of the Sixers’ first-round playoff series against Brooklyn, Joel Embiid has not had a scoring explosion comparable to what he was doing in the regular season; however, he has made his impact felt in other ways. For instance, he pulled down 19 rebounds and dished out seven assists in Game 2, leading to another Philly win.
Another area of the game that Embiid has impacted is the paint, specifically on defense. The Nets have scored just 60 combined points in the paint through the first two games, primarily due to Embiid’s interior presence. Additionally, he has recorded five blocks in those two games, hitting the over on this line in each instance. His streak for recording at least two blocks is now at four consecutive games.
While Brooklyn ranks in the bottom third of the league in 2PA frequency and shots within ten feet, according to the NBA, there should still be plenty of opportunities for Embiid to get at least two blocks, as he can block shots in the mid-range, too, especially if they come from a smaller opponent.
Kevon Looney Double-Double (+240)
It is officially a must-win game for the Golden State Warriors, and they are playing in front of their fans; we can expect energy, effort, and intensity from all players. However, there is one player that the Dubs can always count on for those things: Kevon Looney.
Looney is the Warriors’ “glue guy,” crashing the glass, dropping in put-backs, and playing tough post-defense for them every play. Those things will be emphasized on Thursday night, as Draymond Green has been suspended for Game 3 against Sacramento after stomping on Domantas Sabonis’ chest in Game 2.
Kevon Looney has secured a double-double in his past two games without Draymond Green and in three of his past six. Golden State doesn’t want to dig too deep into its bench, especially with a thin frontcourt, so Looney should see more minutes than usual. This has terrific value written all over it at +240.
