Cade Cunningham Under 6.5 Assists (-141, FanDuel)

Detroit Pistons fans might finally have some hope for the future thanks to the recent play of Cade Cunningham. He returned from a four-game COVID-related absence on Monday and immediately helped lead the Pistons to an upset win over the Milwaukee Bucks. Cunningham totaled seven assists in that game. This marked the fourth straight game played in which the 20-year-old has surpassed Wednesday’s NBA player props line of 6.5 total assists. Nonetheless, Awesemo’s projections are heavily in favor of betting this prop bet under tonight.

While Cunningham has been proving to be a sharp playmaker recently, his season per-game average remains at 5.3 assists. This creates a discrepancy of over one full assist between his tendency and the betting total. Awesemo’s projection of 5.27 assists falls much more closely in line with Cunningham’s average. In fact, OddsShopper shows that some sportsbooks are also closer to this mark, listing the prop total at 5.5. Thus bettors are able to obtain a full assist of value so long as they shop the odds carefully. While there is some juice involved in betting under 6.5 assists at -141, this prediction is still given an ROI of 28%.

Facundo Campazzo Under 11.5 Points (-110, DraftKings)

Aside from his massive performance on New Year’s Day, Facundo Campazzo has been unable to translate an increased role into much scoring. Despite both Mote Morris and Bones Hyland being sidelined recently, Campazzo has only recorded double-digit points twice in the last six games. Hyland has cleared COVID protocols and is likely to cut into the Argentine’s minutes a bit tonight as well. Of course, the other difficult factor here is that Campazzo and the Denver Nuggets face a stingy Utah Jazz defense this evening.

The strength of Campazzo’s game is acting as a distributor, not as a primary scorer. Thus OddsShopper believes that the NBA player props line of 11.5 points is too high ahead of tonight’s matchup. A projection of exactly 10.63 points correlates to a 21% expected ROI and a 63% win probability for the under. While Campazzo has shown an ability to connect from long range, the Jazz will counter that threat tonight with a top-five three-point shooting defense.

Anfernee Simons Over 18.5 Points (-112, SugarHouse)

Filling in as the starter for the injured Damian Lillard on Monday night, Anfernee Simons went off. The 22-year-old connected on nine of 16 attempts from three-point range on his way to dropping 43 points in the Portland Trail Blazers‘ five-point win. The opposing Atlanta Hawks have struggled to defend the perimeter all season, allowing teams to hit over 35% of their three-point attempts. Well, Simons will get another crack at that same Hawks defense in tonight’s matchup. With C.J. McCollum also sidelined, Awesemo’s projections are expecting another 20+ point performance from the young guard.

Perhaps the most interesting thing concerning this NBA player props prediction is the fact that OddsShopper shows widespread disagreement on what the line should be across the market. While the majority of sportsbooks list Simons’ point total at 18.5, there are multiple outlets offering this prop at 19.5 as well. Bettors should be sure to confirm that they are getting the best line and associated odds before placing their wager. OddsShopper gives Simons a 67% chance to exceed 18.5 points. At favorable -112 odds, the expected ROI on this prop bet tonight is a solid 27%.
