Before we take a look at today’s top NBA props, a quick review of yesterday. It looked like a dazzling night was ahead with Seth Curry hitting his over 2.5 assists in the first quarter. But in the end, the record was just 2-4 overall. I am not saying they were bad beats, but we were just one Anthony Davis point and one Jakob Poeltl rebound from a winning day.
Tonight, it is the Lakers who are on a back-to-back so they might be a team to stay away from. You never know how they are going to manage minutes this season. Thankfully with nine games to choose from, we should still have lots of options.

Top NBA Props for Friday, December 10, 2021
NBA Props Pick #1: Tim Hardaway Jr. Over 12.5 Points (-104)
Hardaway has always been a sneaky scorer. He is not having a good shooting season, but the Mavericks need him to let it fly and he is averaging 14 points per game. His last couple of games have not been great but he is the only source of expected scoring that the Mavs have off the bench right now. Against the Pacers, he should be able to get good looks.
NBA Props Pick #2: De’Aaron Fox Over 22.5 Points (-104)
Taking on the Hornets is a very favorable matchup for the Kings. Charlotte is the second-worst defensive team in the league so look for a Kings team that is 6th in scoring to put the ball in the bucket a lot tonight. Fox just dropped 33 points in a win against Orlando and should be feeling great coming into this one. He can definitely clear his seasonal average. Fox is +128 to get 25+ if you are looking for a bigger payoff.
NBA Props Pick #3: Terence Davis to Score 15+ Points (+116)
There should be a lot of possessions and shots in tonight’s Kings-Hornets matchup, and as a result, I like Davis to continue his current scoring streak. In his last three games, Davis has 23, 28, and 16. In those three games, he was 24 for 41 (58.5 percent) from the field, including 13 of 25 (52 percent) from three, and a perfect six for six from the free-throw line. The Hornets are 27th in the NBA in opponent field goal percentage and have been getting lit up lately.
NBA Props Pick #4: Kevin Durant Leading Scorer (+120)
With Durant, teammate James Harden and Trae Young you have three of the most explosive scorers in the NBA on the floor tonight. I think that anytime you can get Durant for this bet at a plus price, it is great value. The Nets rested Durant in Wednesday’s loss against the Houston Rockets so he should have lots of energy for this one. The short spread says it will be a close game so he should get plenty of minutes too. He has been over 40 minutes in three of his last five games.
NBA Props Pick #5: Domantas Sabonis Over 17.5 Points (-112)
We hit on Sabonis in a game a few days ago when the number was just 16.5. Sabonis is super productive and gets a lot of his scores in deep with his aggressive play. He is not automatic like Durant but rumors around the team don’t seem to be slowing him down much. I would back him in any play below his seasonal average, which is 18 points per game.
NBA Props Pick #6: Scottie Barnes to Score 15+ Points (+106)
The rookie is averaging 15.2 points per game, and I think he can get this number and then some in this divisional game. New York and Toronto have played just once this season, but Barnes missed it due to injury. OG Anunoby scored 36 points in that game but he is out for this one so there are a lot of available shots in this one. Barnes has been more aggressive with his offense as the season has progressed.
