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. See below for an example of how to use the tool for one of tonight’s featured NBA player props.
Under 11.5 Points (-105, DraftKings)
Smart comes into Wednesday having outscored his season scoring average in three straight games and four of the last six overall. Despite his recent hot streak, which includes two 20-point performances in the last three, OddsShopper is still fading Smart ahead of tonight’s showdown in Philadelphia. Current NBA betting odds have Smart’s point total at 11.5, a number that aligns with his per-game scoring average of 11.2. The fact that the 76ers play at one of the slowest paces in the league and are a fairly stingy defensive team both bode well to the under. Awesemo projects Smart to score 10.23 points tonight. With OddsShopper revealing -105 odds, the expected ROI for this prop is very favorable at 22%.
Under 5.5 Assists (-135, Caesars)
Along with a hot stretch scoring the basketball, Smart has also been exceeding his per-game assists average with regularity of late. He has become one of the most underrated passers and playmakers in the NBA. Over Boston’s last 10 games Smart has exceeded tonight’s NBA betting total of 5.5 assists eight times. Not once over that same span has he finished with fewer than five assists in any game. On the season Smart has averaged of 5.7 assists per game. Despite this stretch, OddsShopper projects 4.94 assists and an 11% expected ROI on the under in what is expected to be a defense-minded rivalry game.

Under 3.5 Rebounds (+118, FanDuel)
Although OddsShopper has Smart finishing just over the NBA betting line of 3.5 rebounds tonight, the odds on this prop make the under the more favorable play. Smart has grabbed seven and eight rebounds in the Celtics’ last two games, but he is only averaging four per game on the season. OddsShopper lists heavy juice to the over on his rebounding prop across the betting market. At the same time, the optimal +118 price on the under is 13 cents better value than the odds offered at competing sportsbooks at the time of writing. Awesemo’s exact projection of 3.65 rebounds is not high enough to dismiss the plus-money odds that Smart finished under 3.5. Thanks to the lopsided pricing, this prediction has a 10% expected ROI.
