The NBA season is back in full swing and we are going to have a great season ahead of us betting props!
I got heavily into the players props aspect of the NBA last season and enjoyed playing that much more than sides.
I much prefer betting on the players to get their job done, instead of relying on the teams.
There are so many games in the NBA season and one-off blowouts and bad performances happen so I prefer to stick with the individual players in advantageous spots.
Follow along with me all season to find the best value in the Player Prop market.
That said, let’s dive in to today’s games and the spots I am looking at.
ALL PROPS AVAILABLE AT:
Steph Curry o28.5 pts (-118)
I love Steph tonight.
If you have been following me so far this season, you know that I have been all over Steph.
He just dropped 33 on the Rockets last night and has gone over 30+ in 2 of his last 3.
He is just dialed in right now, and when a player is locked in like this, you have to continue to cash in.
Tonight, Steph gets the Pelicans. He has hit his points in 2 of his last 3 matchups against the Pelicans and hit 5+ 3’s in those matchups as well.
He knows that he will have to carry the offense yet again tonight so I expect him to shoot early and often in this one and be aggressive.
Josh Giddey o14.5 points (-125)
This is my first time betting on Giddey this year so I am happy to join the party.
Josh has been great since coming back from an early season injury.
Everyone knows how great Shai Gilgeous-Alexander has been playing but Giddey has also been awesome.
He has gone over his points in 5 of his last 6 and one of those 6 was against his opponent tonight, the Knicks.
A week ago, he had 24 points and a triple double against the Knicks.
Now, I don’t expect a Triple double again but I do expect him to be just as aggressive scoring the ball and get 15+.
But for the value, 20+ points at +270 and a triple double at +1000 is worth mentioning and a sprinkle.
Giddey 20+ (+270)
Giddey Triple Double (+1000)
Trae Young o26.5 pts (-105)
This might be my favorite play today.
Trae hasn’t been as prolific shooting from deep to start the season but he has been scoring from everywhere else.
He has hit is points in 3 of his last 4 and just dropped 33 on Toronto last game.
In come the Cavs tonight, who do not defend the point guard well at all.
They are bottom 5 in points allowed to PGs, allowing almost 30 per game.
Couple that with the fact that Trae has 30+ in his last 3 games against the Cavs, we have a match made in heaven.
I love his 26.5 line but I will also be playing 30+ for the insane value of +155.
Bonus Play: Trae Young 30+ (+155)
Jordan Clarkson o19.5 pts (-108)
Let’s finish this lovely Monday edition with Clarkson.
Clarkson has been fantastic for the Jazz to start the season.
He has embraced his starting role beautifully and has turned it into offensive production.
Clarkson has 20+ in 2 straight after failing to hit his points in 3 straight games.
Tonight he gets the Clippers, who he has already seen this season and he dropped a cool 23 last time out.
The Clippers are the 3rd worst defensively against the point guard, allowing 30 points per game to opposing PGs.
Clarkson will run the show from the point, along with Colin Sexton, and I expect him to have a big night yet again for the Jazz.
I love that the NBA is back and I can’t wait for a profitable season betting on props!
