The process is extremely quick and highly effective. Try out the tool for yourself tonight with the three featured prop bets below!

Tyrese Maxey Under 14.5 Points (-112, SugarHouse)

Tonight marks the second game of a back-to-back for Tyrese Maxey and the Philadelphia 76ers. Aside from the fact that scoring will be hard enough against the stout Utah Jazz defense, Maxey’s conditioning could also be an issue. In his return to the lineup last night following a one-game absence for an illness, Maxey scored just 6 points in 26 minutes of action. There is a real possibility that his minutes are again reduced tonight. Even before he got sick, Maxey had failed to eclipse his season scoring average of 16.8 points per game in four straight outings.

OddsShopper comes in hand for this NBA betting prediction, as it shows some sportsbooks listing Maxey’s point total lower than the favorable line of 14.5. Even with the best number being over two points lower than his season average, Awesemo’s projections lean heavily to the under. Keep in mind that Maxey’s scoring was inflated for the extended stretch in which Joel Embiid was out of the lineup as well. With regards to tonight’s NBA player props total, OddsShopper gives the under an expected ROI of 13% with a projection for Maxey to score 13.31 points.

Tyus Jones Under 4.5 Rebounds (-152, FanDuel)

In the absence of Ja Morant, Tyus Jones has suddenly jumped up to the top of the Memphis Grizzlies‘ depth chart at the point guard position. He has seen a major spike in his minutes, playing no fewer than 20 in each of the last seven games. Jones’ best skill is distributing the basketball to teammates, evidenced in the eight assists he totaled in last night’s game. While he also contributed five rebounds, OddsShopper expects Jones to fall short of that mark in Thursday’s matchup against the Los Angeles Lakers.

Since seeing his role expanded, Jones has only topped the NBA player props total of 4.5 rebounds in three of seven games. The betting market would appear to agree with OddsShopper‘s under prediction given the hefty juice in that direction.

Jakob Poeltl Over 8.5 Rebounds (-128, FanDuel)

San Antonio Spurs center Jakob Poeltl has become a fairly consistent big man for Gregg Popovich. He enters Thursday’s contest nearly averaging a double-double, scoring 12.3 points and securing 9.3 rebounds per game. Poeltl has grabbed double-digit boards in four of the Spurs’ last seven games and has finished with at least nine in seven of the last eight. Tuesday night saw that run come to a halt as Poeltl only managed eight rebounds in a narrow team loss. Nonetheless, OddsShopper expects him to exceed the NBA player props line of 8.5 boards in tonight’s matchup against the Denver Nuggets.

While having to outwork Nikola Jokic down low will not be easy, OddsShopper believes Poeltl will exceed 8.5 rebounds 78% of the time. It shows that the NBA betting market agrees with that assessment. Not only are the odds heavily juiced to the over on 8.5, but several sportsbooks have already adjusted their line to 9.5 boards. Make sure to check back in with OddsShopper to ensure the best line and odds on this and all of your NBA betting picks for tonight’s action.
