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!

R.J. Hampton Under 4.5 Assists (-149, Caesars)

Since returning from his own stint in COVID protocols, R.J. Hampton has been thrust into a high-usage role as other Orlando Magic players remain unavailable. While neither of his lines since returning have been awful, Awesemo believes that he will fall short of tonight’s NBA player props assist line of 4.5. Hampton has averaged 2.9 helpers per game on the season, albeit in a much smaller role than he figures to have tonight. However, he failed to exceed the NBA betting line just two nights ago against the same Milwaukee Bucks outfit that the Magic face this evening. Hampton totaled four assists in 28 minutes on Tuesday.

The OddsShopper Tool shows that the market tends to agree with under being the correct play on this prop bet tonight. The odds are heavily juiced in that direction. Even at the -149 price, Awesemo views this as a positive ROI wager. The projections peg Hampton for exactly 3.87 assists. The win probability for the under is estimated to be 67%.

Corey Kispert Under 3.5 Rebounds (-110, FanDuel)

Even as he has been thrust into a larger role for the shorthanded Washington Wizards, rookie Corey Kispert has failed to offer much production on the glass. He has finished with no fewer than three rebounds in any of the last three games despite playing over 30 minutes in each. Tonight sees the Wizards face a Cleveland Cavaliers team that has been one of the best at playing good defense and cleaning up the glass this season.

While it makes sense for the NBA betting oddsmakers to list Kispert’s rebound total higher than his per-game average of 1.9 given the increased minutes, Awesemo still believes that he will fall short of 3.5. Furthermore, the OddsShopper Tool points bettors towards -110 odds that offer up to 10 cents better value than other prices in the market. At the preferred odds, this prop bet is given a healthy 23% expected ROI.

Kevon Looney Over 6.5 Points (-110, DraftKings)

While Golden State Warriors center Kevon Looney is only averaging 5.9 points per game this season, he has scored at least a half-dozen in five of the last six games. Awesemo views the over on 6.5 total points as a prop bet that is worth a look tonight. With frontcourt teammate Draymond Green in COVID protocols, Looney certainly figures to see a solid amount of playing time. He fell just shy of eclipsing the NBA player props line in a matchup against the Denver Nuggets just two days ago. Awesmo projects Looney for exactly 7.13 points in tonight’s rematch. At favorable -110 odds, this prop carries an expected ROI of 9%.
