Cole K’s Expert NBA Bets & Player Props Today 1/27/22

Cole Karas



Thursday night in the NBA is a quiet night with only two games on the slate. Although the slate is rather lackluster, the Los Angeles Lakers are visiting the Philadelphia 76ers in what should be a great contest. The Lakers continue their East Coast road trip coming off of a solid win against the Nets Tuesday night, while the 76ers are fresh off of a dominating performance by Joel Embiid in a 10-point win over the Pelicans. Both teams had Wednesday night off and are poised to provide an entertaining game for the national broadcast on TNT at 7:30 p.m. ET. The spread is currently sitting at 76ers -2.5 with an over/under coming in 218 for NBA betting tonight. Taking all of that into consideration, let’s find some of the best NBA bets and player props today.

Best NBA Bets & Player Props Today

This matchup is a great measuring stick game for both teams as they only see one another twice all season. The rosters are both very talented, and on any given night there could be electric performances from the likes of LeBron James or Joel Embiid. Upon first glance, this game should be a wire-to-wire, closely contested contest and feature high minutes and usage rates from the team’s best players, resulting in great entertainment. With that being said, the focus in the gambling market should turn from game lines to player props.

In the player prop market lines tend to move quickly throughout the day, so be sure to stay tuned to OddsShopper to guarantee yourself the best possible line. Although this game does in fact have a great amount of star power and scoring, the primary focus and value in this game comes from the rebounding market, where Embiid is sitting at 10.5 total rebounds. In his last five games, Embiid has surpassed 10.5 rebounds in four of them while also topping this number in six of seven. The line is currently sitting at over 10.5 (-132), which is still strong value in a game that should see Embiid play close to 35 minutes.

When betting a player prop, the hope is for the game be close all the way through, the player to play significant minutes with a high usage rate, and a good matchup on the other side of the floor. This game has a 2.5 spread, meaning it should be close, Embiid will play 35-plus minutes with the highest usage rate on his team, and to top it off, Anthony Davis is not completely up to speed for the Lakers, leaving Embiid to be the dominant big on the floor. This game has the potential to be a great game from start to finish, and although there may be a lot of flashy scoring, take the most dominant big man in the league to control the glass and cash this bet.
