The second of Thursday’s two nationally televised NBA matchups pits the San Antonio Spurs against the Portland Trail Blazers. Given the fact that neither team has gotten off to a great start this season, a win tonight is certainly coveted. For the Blazers, it marks the start of a stretch in which they will be without star point guard, Damian Lillard. The revamped Awesemo OddsShopper Tool is the perfect resource to help find the best NBA player props and betting picks for tonight’s Spurs – Trail Blazers matchup. Tonight Awesemo has multiple must-bet projections for the new focal point of the Trail Blazers’ backcourt, C.J. McCollum.

NBA Player Props & Betting Picks | C.J. McCollum

With OddsShopper, finding the best NBA betting player props is fast and simple. All users have to do is filter the prop selections, sort the page, and find the best pick to bet. The process is extremely quick and highly effective. Try out the tool for yourself tonight with the three featured McCollum props below.

Under 25.5 Points (-105, DraftKings)

Despite the absence of Lillard, Awesemo’s NBA player props projections believe that betting McCollum to finish under 25.5 points is the correct play tonight. Lillard’s absence is clearly baked into the total considering that McCollum’s season scoring average is just 20.6 points per game. While the Spurs aren’t the NBA’s best defensive team by any stretch, the ability to key in on McCollum tonight could cause problems. It took 26 shot attempts for McCollum to score just 28 points in Portland’s last game. Awesemo projects him for exactly 24.53 points this evening and gives the under an expected ROI of 9% at -105 odds.

Under 5.5 Assists (-118, FanDuel)

OddsShopper shows slight juice to the under on tonight’s NBA player props total of 5.5 assists for McCollum. Unlike his scoring prop discussed above, this time Awesemo’s projections agree with the vig. McCollum comes into Thursday averaging 4.5 assists per game, one full assist beliw the line. Even with Lillard out of the lineup, McCollum’s assist numbers don’t figure to change all the much. After all, Anfernee Simons will likely be handling the point duties on the majority of possessions. With a projection of 5.27 assists, Awesemo gives the under a 7% expected ROI at the current -118 odds.

Under 3.5 Made Three-Pointers (-112, SugarHouse)

Although the Spurs have allowed opponents to connect on 35% of their 3-point shot attempts this season, it won’t be easy for McCollum to exceed the NBA player props line of 3.5 made triples tonight. A lot of attempts figure to be required. Over the Trail Blazers’ last 10 games, the only times McCollum has made more than 3.5 triples have been those in which he attempted at least nine shots from beyond the arc. When measured up against his 39.8% shooting clip from deep on the season, that math checks out. Betting on McCollum to go rogue and bomb away from range doesn’t seem too appealing. Since Awesemo gives a slight edge to the under on his total points prop, siding with the under on made 3-pointers also falls in line with that projection.
