Tyrese Haliburton Under 9.5 Assists (-139, SugarHouse) 

For the second time in three days, the Sacramento Kings are set to host the Houston Rockets this evening. Second-year point guard Tyrese Haliburton was a playmaking machine in Friday’s matchup. He finished with 12 assists in 31 minutes of action. While Haliburton’s per-game average sits at 7.1 assists, he has notably dished out eight or more in eight of the Kings’ last ten games. Thanks to his incredible recent stretch, OddsShopper shows that the entire NBA player props market has set his assist total at 9.5 ahead of tonight’s game. Despite the fact that he just had a dozen helpers against this same Rockets team, Awesemo’s projections heavily favor the under on this prop bet tonight.

Other than his recent stretch of performances and a favorable defensive matchup (Houston ranks as the worst scoring defense in the league allowing 116.8 points per game), it’s a bit hard to comprehend why the NBA betting line sits over two assists higher than Haliburton’s season average. After all, it’s not like a sharp increase in playing time has been an influential factor. The 21-year-old has averaged 34 minutes per game on the full season. Awesemo has Haliburton pegged for exactly 8.26 assists tonight. While that easily exceeds his per-game average, it also doesn’t come anywhere close to surpassing the NBA player props total. While OddsShopper does indicate that increased juice is required to play the under, bettors can still score a 24% ROI when they wager on optimal -139 odds.

Otto Porter Jr. Under 7.5 Rebounds (-105, DraftKings)

Even with Draymond Green out of the lineup due to a calf injury, Golden State Warriors forward Otto Porter Jr. has not seen a massive bump in playing time. In fact, he failed to top 20 minutes of action in each of the team’s last two games. While Porter has made a nice impact on the glass recently, he has failed to exceed tonight’s NBA player props line of 7.5 rebounds in any of his last nine games played. One would have to go all the way back to December 23rd to find the last time Porter topped that lofty total. Given that he is only averaging 5.1 boards per game on the season overall, it’s no surprise that Awesemo is high on playing under this prop bet tonight.

Despite Porter’s repeated failure to top the NBA betting line, OddsShopper actually shows multiple sportsbooks with juiced odds to the over. This comes as quite a surprise but is a reality that bettors can use to their advantage in betting the other side. Awesemo officially projects Porter for exactly 6.24 rebounds in tonight’s game. The opposing Minnesota Timberwolves actually rank as a top-12 team on the glass this season. The favorable -105 odds offer as much as 22 cents of additional value over the prices listed at other shops. Along with a massive 73% win probability, bettors can score a huge ROI of 43% at the preferred odds.

Royce O’Neale Over 4.5 Rebounds (-138, FanDuel)

Although the Utah Jazz will be getting star center Rudy Gobert back tonight following an extended stint in health and safety protocols, they will remain without Hassan Whiteside for the same reason. As a result, starting power forward Royce O’Neale will need to have a big effort on the glass much as he did on Wednesday. The veteran snatched nine boards across 36 minutes in that game, easily topping his per-game average of 5.0. The performance marked the third time in his last four games played that O’Neale exceeded five rebounds. With the NBA player props market listing his rebounding total at 4.5 ahead of tonight’s game, Awesemo expects the recent over trend to continue.

Although Gobert is returning to action, bettors should keep in mind that he may have reduced minutes tonight in his first game back. Because of this and Utah’s other absences, it’s very surprising to see O’Neale’s rebounding prop set under his season average. That being said, OddsShopper does show that the NBA betting market is heavily juiced to the over across the board. In fact, the best price of -138 is over 20 cents lower than those at other sportsbooks. Awesemo’s projection of 6.61 boards gives the over a massive 80% win probability. At the optimal price, this prediction also carries a large ROI of 38%.
