It’s a light slate of games across the NBA with only six games taking place but there is still plenty of value across the board in terms of NBA prop bets.
Russell Westbrook over 54.5 points, rebounds, and assists (-115)
We have made plenty of money with this over-bet with Russell Westbrook the last few games and there is no reason it won’t cash again. In the last game against the Atlanta Hawks, Russell Westbrook finished with 28 points, 21 assists, and 13 rebounds. The pace of this game on Wednesday and Westbrook will finish with at least 60 total in this one.
Lonzo Ball Under 28.5 points, rebounds, and assists (-113)
This number all comes down to how many points he scores, and in each of the last two games he has scored only 12 points total. On the season, Ball is averaging only 14.6 points and as long as he finishes under that 13 point number, which I expect, he will finish under the 28.5 points, rebounds, and assists in this game.
Lonzo Ball under 17.5 points (-115)
It’s already been broken down above, but with the Pelicans, pace slowed down a bit, this is too many points for Ball to score. Ball is going to finish at his best with 14 points and that is going to lead to him finishing with under 17.5 points.
John Collins Under 7.5 rebounds (+105)
With players probs, and all betting in general, value is most important and that is exactly what this John Collins bet is. In two of Collin's last three games he has finished under this number and the only other game he finished with eight rebounds. In this game, look for Collins to finish close to the number, but he will still finish under it.
Will Jusuf Nurkic have a double-double? No (-115)
Jusuf Nurkic will get his ten points for the first part of the double-double, but he is going to fail to get his ten rebounds. On the season, Nurkic is averaging 8.7 rebounds per game and each of his last two games he has had under ten rebounds. Look for Nurfic to fail to reach a double-double in this one.
