With help from OddsShopper, the following article highlights three must-bet prop predictions for Wednesday night’s NBA action.

Best NBA Player Props & Betting Picks Tonight

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. Try out the tool for yourself tonight with the three featured prop bets below!

Grayson Allen Over 2.5 Rebounds (-102, FanDuel)

Even with both Miles Bridges and P.J. Washington sidelined, Charlotte Hornets forward Jalen McDaniels only managed to corral three rebounds in Monday night’s game. While one could argue that he would have earned more playing if not for the blowout nature of the contest, expecting McDaniels to more than double his rebounding production tonight is a tough ask. While the opposing Indiana Pacers have plenty of statistical flaws, they are one of the best rebounding teams in the NBA. Add it all up and OddsShopper believes that the NBA player props line of 6.5 is simply too high.

A quick glance at OddsShopper shows that the NBA betting market agrees on under being the play here. In fact, some sportsbooks are even juiced far enough in that direction that the over is offering plus-money buyback. The best odds on the under are currently set at -120. Even with the added cost, OddsShopper still gives this prop bet a hefty expected ROI of 28%.

JaVale McGee Over 13.5 Points (+116, FanDuel)

The defending Western Conference Champion Phoenix Suns are among the latest teams to be dealing with multiple “health and safety” absences. With both Jae Crowder and Deandre Ayton currently in COVID protocols, center JaVale McGee figures to be in line for additional playing time tonight. Interestingly, Phoenix opted to run a small lineup for the better part of Monday’s game. McGee scored only six points in 22 minutes of action. That should be a different story tonight against the undermanned and downright poor Oklahoma City Thunder.

With a projection of 15.47 points, OddsShopper believes that McGee will finish nearly two full points higher than the NBA player props line of 13.5. Thanks to OddsShopper, we are also clued into the fact that oddsmakers are in apparent disagreement over where to set this NBA betting total. While most of the market is at 13.5, there is a deviation of one full point higher available. Make sure to play the best number on this prop bet. At the current best price of -115, bettors are looking at a 22% expected ROI opportunity.

Nassir Little Over 12.5 Points (-110, FanDuel)

While Portland Trail Blazers forward Nassir Little may only average 8.9 points per game on the season, he has not always been a part of the starting rotation. After missing one game due to his own stint in COVID protocols, Little returned to the starting lineup on Monday and dropped a massive line. 20 points and 10 rebounds highlighted his double-double evening. Little certainly has not done anything to suggest that he will see less playing time tonight. It is admittedly a tough defensive matchup against the Utah Jazz. However, he will not be the focal point of Utah’s defensive efforts.

Awesemo’s projections have Little tabbed to score 14.17 points this evening. Bettors should make sure to reference OddsShopper for this prop bet tonight just as they would any other NBA betting pick. Currently, the favorable -110 odds offer up to 10 cents better value than those at other sportsbooks. This over prediction is determined to have a 22% expected ROI.
