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!

Killian Hayes Under 7.5 Points (+105, DraftKings)

Despite Killian Hayes continuing to struggle as a scorer in his second season, OddsShopper shows the NBA betting market is juiced to the over on tonight’s line of 7.5 points. While Hayes did exceed that mark in each of the last two games, he is still only averaging 6.4 points per game on the season. The two most recent outings were preceded by four consecutive games in which he failed to score more than 7  points. Add in a fairly difficult matchup against a New York Knicks outfit that prides itself on tough defense, and it very well could be a struggle for Hayes this evening.

Along with favorable plus-money odds on the under, Awesemo’s projections differ greatly from the total. They peg Hayes to finish with 5.59 points tonight, a discrepancy of nearly 2 full points compared to the betting line. The optimal +105 odds listed by OddsShopper are up to 11 cents better value than alternative sportsbooks. At that price point, OddsShopper gives this under prediction a massive 44% expected ROI to go along with a favorable win probability of 70%.

Malik Beasley Under 15.5 Points (-105, DraftKings)

Patrick Beverley joined Anthony Edwards in health and safety protocol on Tuesday morning. As a result, Malik Beasley is expected to see an increased load, just as he did when Beverley missed time with a hip injury. Beasley has made the most of his opportunities this season, even when he comes off the bench. Beasley enters Tuesday night’s matchup averaging 11.2 points per game. He has also scored 13 points or more in six of the Timberwolves’ last eight games.

While it makes sense for Beasley’s scoring prop to be higher than normal given the Beverley news, OddsShopper believes that the inflated line of 15.5 has gotten out of control. Over that same eight games stretch mentioned above, Beasley has only exceeded 15.5 points on three occasions despite strong scoring outputs overall. A projection of 14.46 points sits over 1 full point lower than the betting total. OddsShopper currently shows -105 odds to be the best price available in the market.

JaVale McGee Over 6.5 Rebounds (+110, DraftKings)

After filling in admirably while Deandre Ayton was out with an illness, JaVale McGee has hardly slowed down since returning to his typical role off the bench. In fact, McGee has now eclipsed tonight’s rebounding total of 6.5 in seven straight games. This includes each of the three outings since Ayton returned to the lineup. One of those games saw McGee corral seven boards in just eight minutes of playing time.

McGee enters Tuesday night’s battle against the Los Angeles Lakers averaging 7.5 rebounds per game on the season. While Awesemo’s projection of seven rebounds is lower than that average, it is still comfortably over the total of 6.5. This prop bet becomes even more intriguing when one considers the plus-money odds available on the over. OddsShopper currently lists the best price at +110. This prop has an 18% expected ROI at those odds.
