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!

Cole Anthony Over 5.5 Assists (-135, Caesars)

Cole Anthony returned from a six-game absence on Wednesday night and picked up right where he left off in terms of productivity. Along with 24 points, he also dished seven assists. His return could not have come at a better time for the Magic, who are set to be without rookie Jalen Suggs for the foreseeable future. With Anthony the catalyst in the backcourt, OddsShopper likes him to exceed the NBA player props line of 5.5 assists tonight. Anthony has averaged slightly more than the number on the season, with 5.9 assists per game coming in. A matchup against the lowly Rockets figures to benefit the cause as well.

Make sure to reference OddsShopper in order to get the best value possible on your NBA prop bets tonight. At the time of writing, it shows a 14-cent discrepancy in the odds for Anthony to go over 5.5 assists across the market. At the optimal price of -135, Awesemo gives this prop an expected ROI of 14%.

Jonas Valanciunas Over 10.5 Rebounds (-120, FanDuel)

After sending the NBA world into a frenzy with his seven 3-pointers on Monday, Jonas Valanciunas was a bit more subdued on Wednesday night. The fact that the game wound up as a blowout loss to the Mavericks did not help his playing time nor his statistical production. Valanciunas is averaging a double-double on the season but scored just 6 points and only grabbed five rebounds in 25 minutes. All three marks were well below his season averages. Tonight sees the Pelicans once again face the Mavericks, this time in Dallas. OddsShopper expects positive regression for Valanciunas in this matchup.

The current line of 10.5 rebounds is over 1.5 rebounds lower than the 12.1 Valanciunas is averaging this season. Even though the Pelicans and Mavericks are both among the eight slowest teams in the NBA, Valanciunas has no trouble reaching double-digit rebounds more often than not. OddsShopper projects him for exactly 11.87 rebounds in tonight’s game. This results in an expectation that the over on 10.5 total rebounds will hit 67% of the time. The NBA betting market clearly agrees given that this prop bet has been juiced to the over. Even at optimal -120 odds, the expected ROI is still 19%.

Landry Shamet Under 12.5 Points (-112, SugarHouse)

With Devin Booker sitting out tonight’s game with a hamstring injury, other backcourt players will once again have the opportunity to step up. Last night Landry Shamet saw his minutes jump up to 31. He connected on four of eight 3-point attempts to finish the game with 14 points. Despite the increase in playing time and strong shooting night, OddsShopper does not believe Shamet will once again exceed the NBA player props line of 12.5 points.

Shamet had to shoot 50% from beyond the arc to do so last night, which is bound to regress. On the season he is just a 38.8% shooter from deep. OddsShopper projects him for exactly 11.15 points tonight against the stout Warriors defense. The resulting expected ROI is 18% when one plays the optimal -112 odds.
