Best NBA Player Props & Betting Picks | Richaun Holmes

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 Holmes props below.

Over 6.5 Rebounds (-130, Caesars)

Tonight marks the fourth game since  Holmes returned to the Kings’ lineup following a nasty-looking eye injury. Despite not playing more than 25 minutes in any of the three previous games since his return, Holmes managed to finish with six rebounds or more twice. As he gets up to speed, the talented big man should have no trouble returning to his per-game average of 8.9 boards. Tonight’s matchup figures to be a healthy one as the Mavericks are one of the worst rebounding teams in the league. Assuming Holmes continues to see an uptick in minutes, it makes sense to bet over the NBA player props total of 6.5 rebounds. OddsShopper projects him to finish with 8.36 boards. The discrepancy results in a massive expected ROI of 32%.

Over 9.5 Points (-120, DraftKings)

In a similar vein to the prop bet above, OddsShopper also expects Holmes to see an uptick in scoring as he works back up to his regular amount of playing time. The 28-year-old had his best scoring output since making his return on Monday when he pitched in nine points. OddsShopper likes him to exceed that amount and the NBA player props line of 9.5 points in tonight’s game. The fact that Dallas lacks much quality interior defense certainly adds to this handicap. A projection for Holmes to score 11.8 points brings about a 70% win probability for the over. It also leads to a solid 29% expected ROI when bet at favorable odds. OddsShopper shows -120 as the best price in the NBA betting market.

Over 0.5 Blocks (-149, Caesars)

Reduced playing time has not prevented Holmes from recording at least one block in each game since returning from injury. Entering Wednesday’s game, he is averaging one block per game on the season overall. As a result, it is no surprise to see OddsShopper showing that sportsbooks are requiring bettors to lay -149 odds for Holmes to have at least one block tonight. Even so, it is still an NBA player props prediction that we can feel pretty confident in given Holmes’ skills as a shot-blocker.
