The process is extremely quick and highly effective. Try out the tool for yourself tonight with the three featured LaMelo Ball props below.

Under 21.5 Points (-114, FanDuel)

It is not every night that bettors can find such a massive betting edge on one of the NBA’s brightest superstars. Despite OddsShopper‘s projections deeming there to be massive value on the under for the initial line of 20.5 points, the props market disagreed. OddsShopper shows Ball’s point total at 21.5 across the entire NBA betting market. Despite there being some additional juice required to bet the under, the optimal -114 odds are not too shabby at all.

For a line that now sits over 4 full points above OddsShopper‘s projection of 17.47 points, it is a no-brainer. Against a similar tough defensive opponent in the Phoenix Suns yesterday, Ball shot just 2-for-12 from the floor and scored all of nine points. On top of having to face a top-10 Jazz scoring defense, this game being the second of a back-to-back could lead to tired legs for Ball as well.

Over 6.5 Assists (-105, BetMGM)

The NBA betting market disagrees on what Ball’s assist total should be this evening. While the majority of sportsbooks are offering 6.5, some are listed one assist higher at 7.5. Both lines are lower than Ball’s per-game average of 8.1 assists on the season. This is certainly warranted considering that the Jazz are Charlotte’s opponent tonight. That said, Ball has exceeded the consensus line of 6.5 assists in five of his last six games played. For as bad as his shooting was yesterday against the Suns, Ball still managed to distribute seven assists.

OddsShopper has him pegged for 6.86 assists tonight. At the preferred -105 odds, the resulting expected ROI on this over prediction is 13%. Bettors must check OddsShopper to make sure that they place this bet through a sportsbook that does have the total set at 6.5. It becomes a completely different conversation at the alternative total of 7.5.

Over 6.5 Rebounds (-102, SugarHouse)

Ball comes into Monday night’s game averaging 7.7 rebounds per contest. That is over one full board higher than the line of 6.5. Despite this, the NBA betting market is mostly juiced to the under on this prop bet. Considering that the Jazz are one of the best rebounding teams in the league, led by center Rudy Gobert, it makes sense to list Ball’s prop on the low end. However, OddsShopper believes that he can still eclipse the number, projecting him for 6.64 rebounds tonight. It recommends -102 odds that are 23 cents lower than the majority of the market.
