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

Jordan Poole Over 20.5 Points (-115, PointsBet)

With the Golden State Warriors set to play tonight without both Stephen Curry and Draymond Green tonight, other players will be counted upon to play increased minutes and contribute. The team’s best scoring option tonight is clearly shooting guard Jordan Poole. Despite not playing more than 26 minutes in any of the three games since rejoining the lineup, Poole has scored in double figures twice. This includes a massive 32-point effort on Monday night. Poole comes into Thursday’s matchup against averaging 17.7 points per game.

Assuming Poole gets bumped back up to at or above his season average of 29.9 minutes tonight, he has a great opportunity to exceed the NBA player props line of 19.5 points. The opponent New Orleans Pelicans are far from a defensive juggernaut, allowing 110.7 points per game, the ninth-most of any team. OddsShopper shows that the majority of the NBA betting market has moved Poole’s scoring prop up to 21.5. This sits two points higher compared to earlier in the afternoon. However, a couple of sportsbooks are still lingering at 20.5. Awesemo projects Poole for exactly 21.23 points tonight. At favorable -115 odds, this prediction is given a 7% expected ROI.

Killian Hayes Under 6.5 Points (+110, FanDuel)

Having only played 24 minutes and attempted just five shots in each of his first two games back from health and safety protocols, Killian Hayes simply is not getting enough volume to warrant anything but betting under on his NBA player props for scoring. While he did shoot 3-for-5, including a made 3-pointer, to finish with 8 points yesterday, Hayes remains offensively challenged beyond his passing abilities. With OddsShopper listing plus-money prices on the under for Hayes’ scoring prop bet tonight, it is inclined to steer in that direction.

On the season Hayes has in fact averaged less than the betting total of 6.5 points for tonight’s game. Awesemo pegs him to finish at 6.15 in Thursday’s game. Not only are bettors able to score a plus-money return, but OddsShopper also allows one to find +110 odds that offer up to 10 cents of additional value compared to the prices at other sportsbooks.

Terance Mann Over 5.5 Rebounds (-110, PointsBet)

Terance Mann was abnormally unproductive across all statistical categories the last time the Los Angeles Clippers were in action on Monday. Perhaps a reduced amount of playing time (25 minutes after playing over 34 in three straight games) was a factor. At any rate, the Clippers will need Mann to bounce back tonight given that they are extremely shorthanded due to health and safety protocols. On the bright side, the opposing Phoenix Suns are also without multiple big men due to the virus. Players like Mann will have a better chance to make an impact on the glass tonight given the depleted frontcourts on both teams.

While Mann’s season average of 5.3 boards per game falls just shy of tonight’s line of 5.5, the majority of those games have come with a more complete roster around him. Both Los Angeles and Phoenix play solid defense, which figures to lead to several missed shot attempts tonight as well. Awesemo projects him for 6.29 rebounds, giving the over a 61% win probability on this prop bet tonight. Bettors should be sure to check OddsShopper for the best available price. At the time of writing, the optimal -110 odds are up to 25 cents better than other prices in the NBA betting market.
