NBA Player Props: Today’s Best Bets & Picks

NBA player props are one of the many ways to bet on an NBA basketball game. Sportsbooks will set various props for players that have to deal with their statistical outcomes during a single game. For example, LeBron James could have a 27.5 point prop set, where you can either take the over or the under on his points. There are also NBA player props for other stats like assists, rebounds, blocks, steals, and more.

Writer’s NBA Player Prop Records

Jason Guilbault: 23-20-0 (+2.46u)
Drew Norton: 57-79-0  (-13.07u)
Braxton Reynolds: 26-51-0  (-21.8u)

Bam Adebayo u24.5 PRA (-102 FD)

Analysis: It’s hard to say why Bam Adebayo gets virtually no touches on the offensive end, but we might as well take advantage of it if we are forced to sit through it. Through the first two games of the Celtics-Heat series, Bam Adebayo has shot a total of ten times and grabbed merely 13 rebounds. Bam hasn’t hit this prop, or come anywhere near it, in the past four playoff games; there is no sign or indication that will change in Game Three in Boston. I’ll take my chances sweating out this under.

Jimmy Butler o36.5 PRA  (-160, 2u FD)

Analysis: Somebody has to score for the Miami Heat, and oftentimes, that somebody is Jimmy Butler. Butler has looked like a bonafide Top 10 player in the league since the start of the playoffs, putting up massive averages of roughly 30 points, eight rebounds, five assists, and two steals per game. Based on his averages alone, this is a strong bet; however, he has also hit this number in seven straight games. Butler’s stats on the road hardly deviate. As a matter of fact, they only seem to get better throughout the playoffs when he is on his opponent’s home floor. In his past four road games, Butler has scored 32, 33, 36, and 40 points. That makes this number look awfully small.
