It’s a nice slate across the NBA on Wednesday with seven games taking place and with so many games there are plenty of player prop bets to make your day a winning one.
Russell Westbrook Over 46.5 points, rebounds, and assists (-113)
Russell Westbrook on the season is averaging 21.8 points, 11.3 rebounds, and 11.2 assists per game. In Westbrook’s last game he finished with 12 points, 24 assists, and 21 rebounds. Even if Westbrook doesn’t run up the score in this game, he still will have enough assists and rebounds to push this over the 46.5 total.
Grayson Allen under 16.5 points, rebounds, and assists (-110)
Grayson Allen’s scoring has been an issue as of late and he is coming off a game against the New York Knicks where he scored only two points. Allen also isn’t very active in the assists or rebounding game, and I expect in this game he will finish with a total around eight. Back Grayson Allen to finish under 16.5 points, rebounds, and assists.
Jayson Tatum over 28.5 Points (-106)
Jayson Tatum has turned into a star for the Boston Celtics and he is playing some really good basketball coming into this one. In the last game, Tatum finished with 33 points against the Portland Trail Blazers. Each of the last three games, Tatum has finished with over 33 points and against the Orlando Magic there is no reason he shouldn’t have his fourth straight game of scoring at least 33 points. Back Jayson Tatum to finish with over 28.5 points.
Marcus Smart Under 14.5 points (-110)
I expect the pace of this play might be a little slower, and even though Tatum will be scoring plenty, this is going to be a game where Smart doesn’t really light up the scoreboard. Each of Smart’s last three games he has scored 14 points or less, and in the last game against the Portland Trail Blazers, even though the Celtics scored 119 points, Smart could only manage 11 points. Smart will finish this game with under 14.5 points.
