The first of two nationally televised NBA games on ESPN tonight features two of the top teams in the Eastern Conference.

This head-to-head could prove critical for playoff sending tiebreakers down the road as well. The revamped Awesemo OddsShopper Tool is the perfect resource to help find the best NBA player props and betting picks for tonight’s Bucks – Nets matchup. Let’s take a look at Awesemo’s must-bet projections for Bucks star, Khris Middleton.

Best NBA Player Props & Betting Picks | Khris Middleton

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 Middleton props below.

Under 22.5 Points (-112, SugarHouse)

Despite the Bucks being extremely shorthanded due to several players landing in health and safety protocols, OddsShopper does not anticipate Middleton being able to clear the NBA betting line of 22.5 points. It certainly is a bump up from his per-game scoring average of 18.5 points on the season. Even after adjusting for the absence of teammates Jrue Holiday and Grayson Allen, Awesemo still only projects Middleton for 20.78 points in tonight’s game.

OddsShopper also suggests that the betting market agrees. In fact, the majority of sportsbooks are offering this same prop bet one full point lower at 21.5. In addition to netting a full point of value, it is not like bettors have to lay any extreme juice when they play this prop bet at optimal -112 odds. This under prediction has a positive expected ROI of 16%.

Over 5.5 Assists (+115, PointsBet)

Like his scoring prop bet above, Middleton’s assists per game average on the season sits below tonight’s line of 5.5. However, the combination of Holiday being out along with favorable plus-money odds lend bettors another positive ROI opportunity. Middleton has distributed 4.9 assists per game on the season and had four two nights ago. While Awesemo’s projection of 5.67 assists barely exceeds the NBA player props line, a plus-money return helps bump up the value. OddsShopper also shows that the current best price of +115 is up to 15 cents better than others in the market.

Over 5.5 Rebounds (+120, BetMGM)

As a team, the Bucks are not likely to be as shorthanded on the glass given that it is mostly backcourt players who will miss tonight’s game. However, OddsShopper yet again shows a plus-money opportunity. As a result, OddsShopper is inclined to favor the over on 5.5 total rebounds for Middleton tonight. This is actually a line that Middleton has eclipsed in each of the last two games. Nonetheless, the NBA player props market is heavily juiced to the under. Awesemo projects Middleton for 5.46 boards tonight. Despite the win probability for the over being less than 50%, the added value in +120 odds enables this prop bet to sneak into positive ROI territory.
