Best NBA Player Props & Betting Picks | Nikola Jokic

With OddsShopper, finding the best NBA betting player props is fast and simple. All users must 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 Jokic props below.

Under 7.5 Assists (+100, PointsBet)

While playing under 7.5 total assists for Jokic tonight may seem like a contrarian play, it’s worth pointing out that he is only averaging 7.0 assists per game on the season. Despite this, OddsShopper shows the majority of the NBA player props market is juiced to the over on this prop bet. This has resulted in favorable +100 odds for bettors to track down on the under. While Jokic had eight assists in the Nuggets’ most recent game, he has only exceeded this NBA betting line twice in the last seven games overall. Awesemo projects him to finish with 7.27 assists this evening. Combined with the even-money price, the resulting expected ROI sits at a favorable 17%.

Over 12.5 Rebounds (-120, Caesars)

Considering that Jokic has averaged a ridiculous 14.1 rebounds per game this season, he has regularly topped tonight’s NBA betting total of 12.5. In fact, Jokic has done so in seven of the Nuggets’ last nine games overall including three contests in which he topped the 20-rebound threshold. Against a depleted Trail Blazers outfit, Jokic should be able to have his way inside and on the glass when on the floor this evening. OddsShopper shows that most sportsbooks are juiced to the over on this prop and Awesemo’s projections are inclined to agree. A prediction of 13.51 rebounds for Jokic clears the NBA player props line by one full board. Even with -120 representing the best price, this wager still has a positive ROI of 9%.

Over 24.5 Points (-115, FanDuel)

The OddsShopper Tool currently shows discrepancies across the NBA betting market when it comes to Jokic’s scoring prop for tonight’s game. At the time of writing, three of the featured sportsbooks list this line at 24.5. The other three are all one point higher at 25.5. While Jokic has come up short of both NBA player props totals in Denver’s last two games, he is averaging 25.7 points per game on the season overall. Given the discrepancy in this prop line and the associated odds that arise as a result, Awesemo does not see a ton of value in playing either side of this prop bet. Officially, the projections expect 25.42 points for Jokic tonight. This points towards playing over 24.5 points, a line that bettors can currently grab at -115 odds.
