3 QUICK & EASY Kevin Durant NBA Player Props Tonight | 76ers vs. Nets 12/16/21

Henry John



The early game of tonight’s nationally televised doubleheader features two of the top teams in the Eastern Conference. Fresh off of an overtime win two nights ago, the Brooklyn Nets will aim to run their current winning streak to four when they host the Philadelphia 76ers. Of course, with numerous players sidelined due to health and safety protocol, the Nets will once again be playing shorthanded. This gives bettors an opportunity to capitalize on NBA betting picks. The revamped Awesemo OddsShopper Tool is the perfect resource to help find the best NBA player props and betting picks for tonight’s 76ers – Nets matchup. Let’s take a look at Awesemo’s must-bet projections for Nets superstar, Kevin Durant.

Best NBA Player Props & Betting Picks Today | Kevin Durant

With OddsShopper, finding the best NBA betting player props is fast and simple. All users must 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 Kevin Durant props below.

Under 9.5 Rebounds (-125, Caesars)

The largest edge that Awesemo’s projections have for Durant NBA player props tonight is a play under his rebounding total. While Durant crushed both the betting line of 9.5 and his season average of 7.8 boards in Tuesday’s triple-double effort, one has to expect a regression to the mean tonight. The NBA betting market certainly thinks so, with OddsShopper showing significant juice to the under on this prop. OddsShopper still gives the juiced side a massive advantage with Durant projected for 7.76 rebounds tonight. That mark results in a 76% expected win probability for the under. At the preferred price of -125, the expected ROI for this wager is a massive 36%.

Under 8.5 Assists (-135, Caesars)

OddsShopper is also bearish on Durant to exceed his assist total in tonight’s matchup. On the season he has only handed out 5.8 assists per game. Totals of nine and 11 in the Nets’ last two games have dwarfed that mark. With Brooklyn’s depth chart still severely depleted, the oddsmakers adjusted Durant’s assists total all the way up to 8.5 ahead of tonight’s game. Once again, the market is heavily juiced to the under, and rightfully so given that the line sits nearly three full assists more than his season average. While Awesemo has raised their own projections to suggest Durant will hand out 7.74 assists tonight, there is still plenty of interest in betting the under. OddsShopper shows optimal value at -135 odds. This prop bet is deemed to have an expected ROI of 17%.

Over 33.5 Points (+100, DraftKings)

Can Durant top the NBA player props scoring total of 33.5 points for a third straight game? After dropping 51 on Sunday and another 34 in Tuesday’s overtime win, OddsShopper is willing to take a shot on another massive offensive game tonight. It will not be easy against a solid 76ers defense. Then again, the Toronto Raptors outfit Durant went off on two nights ago is also among the NBA’s top defensive teams. A high variance in the odds for this prop across the NBA betting market also helps make the over more intriguing. Currently OddsShopper lists the best value at +100. That price is up to 14 cents better than competing lines in the market. While OddsShopper only gives the over a 53% win probability, the even-money odds result in a positive expected ROI at 6%.
