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 Siakam props below.

Under 22.5 Points (-110, FanDuel)

A 20-point game on Wednesday marked the fifth time in the last six games that Pascal Siakam reached that threshold. Although he has been hot scoring the basketball recently, there is reason to believe he stays under tonight’s NBA player props total. Even though he hit the 20-point mark two nights ago, Siakam still fell short of tonight’s prop total of 22.5 points. Furthermore, this is a line that sits 1.5 points higher than the 21.0 Siakam has averaged per game this season.

Considering that each of the first three meetings between the Raptors and Wizards this season was extremely low scoring, it makes sense that Awesemo only projects Siakam under his scoring average for this matchup at 20.51 points. The resulting expected ROI for this prop bet at favorable -110 odds is 15%.

Over 7.5 Rebounds (-134, FanDuel)

Contrary to his scoring prop above, the NBA betting line of 7.5 rebounds sits nearly one full board under the 8.3 that Pascal Siakam is averaging this season. As a result, it is not a huge surprise to see OddsShopper listing significant juice to the over at all sportsbooks across the market. In fact, the most favorable price of -134 offers as much as 11 cents better value than alternative listings. After finishing with eight rebounds on Wednesday, Siakam has now cleared the NBA player props total in three of the last four games. Awesemo gives him a 66% chance of doing so again tonight, projecting him to finish with 8.68 rebounds. The resulting ROI for this over prediction sits at 15%.

Under 5.5 Assists (-114, FanDuel)

Rounding out our Pascal Siakam NBA player props for tonight’s game is a lean to the under on 5.5 total assists. Even after dishing out 10 assists in back-to-back games last Saturday and Monday, Siakam is still only averaging 4.9 helpers on the season. The slow pace of both teams figures to limit the number of possessions, scoring and, in turn, assists for all players across the board. OddsShopper shows that some sportsbooks have this prop juiced so far to the under that an even-money return can be obtained on the other side. Despite the pricing, Awesemo is much more in favor of betting the under. The best odds available of -114 do not require bettors to pay a huge premium. With a projection of 5.34 assists, this under prediction has a 7% expected ROI.
