One of the late games in the NBA on Thursday night features the San Antonio Spurs taking on the Los Angeles Lakers. For LA, it will be an opportunity to snap a three-game losing streak ahead of a marquee Christmas Night showdown on Saturday. The revamped Awesemo OddsShopper Tool is the perfect resource to help find the best NBA player props and betting picks for tonight’s Spurs – Lakers matchup. Let’s take a look at Awesemo’s must-bet projections for Lakers superstar, LeBron James.
With help from OddsShopper, the following column aims to find optimal odds and discusses some positive ROI prop bets for James in tonight’s matchup.
Best NBA Player Props & Betting Picks Today | LeBron James
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 James props below.
Under 8.5 Rebounds (-141, Caesars)
Despite totaling double-digit rebounds in four of the last seven games, Awesemo’s projections are eying the under on LeBron James‘ prop total tonight. In a way, James has been all or nothing when it comes to rebounding the basketball of late. In the three games where he failed to notch at least 10 boards, he also fell shy of the NBA player props line of 8.5. It’s also worth noting that this line sits nearly two full rebounds higher than James’ per-game average of 6.6 on the season. The OddsShopper Tool is a key part of this handicap as it shows some sportsbooks offering this prop bet at 7.5 boards. The higher total of 8.5 still yields a positive ROI betting opportunity even at higher odds.

Under 6.5 Assists (-128, BetMGM)
LeBron James enters tonight’s matchup averaging 6.5 assists per game on the season. While that number is identical to the NBA player props total, it is also one that James has failed to achieve in each of the last four games and seven of the last nine overall. Awesemo agrees with the NBA betting market which has juiced this prop bet to the under. A projection of exactly 5.87 assists results in a 64% win probability for the under. Bettors should again make sure to reference the OddsShopper Tool to maximize their betting value. Currently, the tool shows optimal -128 odds sitting up to 11 cents lower than the prices offered at other sportsbooks.
Over 2.5 Made Three-Pointers (+140, SugarHouse)
The NBA betting odds list the over/under for total made three-pointers by LeBron James tonight at 2.5. The last time he exceeded that total was also the last time that the Lakers won a game. James has gone a combined 5-of-18 from beyond the arc over the last three games and is shooting just 34.1% from downtown on the season overall. On the bright side, the Spurs are allowing opponents to convert on 36.6% of their three-point attempts, tied for the fourth-worst perimeter defense in the league. In terms of a bounce-back opportunity, it won’t get much better than this for James. With the OddsShopper Tool showing favorable plus-money odds on the over, bettors have a shot to earn a nice potential payout.
