There's a full slate of NBA games tonight and while the BetSided crew has you covered with their best bets of the night, here are three of my favorite props for the night.

Last night, I went 2-1, bringing the Friday tally to 3-3. Let's see if we can get a perfect 3-0 tonight and improve on the Saturday tally. Let’s break down the picks!

All odds listed are via WynnBET.

Best Prop Bets Today

  • Kyle Lowry OVER 6.5 Assists (-115)
  • Deandre Ayton UNDER 9.5 Rebounds (-115)
  • Anfernee Simons OVER 18.5 Points (-115)

Heat vs. Hornets: Kyle Lowry OVER 6.5 Assists (-115)

Kyle Lowry missed this line in his first game back, but that is understandable. He had missed a lot of time and only played 25 minutes as the Heat blew out the Spurs. The Hornets will be a much tougher opponent tonight, so Lowry will get full run tonight.

Lowry hasn't shot the ball well this season, but he still has impacted the offense. He's averaging 8 assists per game this season. This line is very much in the wheelhouse of that and even provides a good margin of error. Charlotte has been playing better defense, but there will be assists to be had with the Heat at full strength.

Suns vs. Wizards: Deandre Ayton UNDER 9.5 Rebounds (-115)

Ayton has missed a lot of time recently, and his rebounding may be taking a hit because of it. He's missed this line in six of his last seven games. His offensive rebounding numbers have also gone down, which is one the main reasons he isn't hitting this line.

I expect the Suns to be careful with Ayton as he continues to get himself back to game speed. On top of that, the Suns should run over the Wizards -- leaving Ayton with light work today.

Bucks vs. Trail Blazers: Anfernee Simons OVER 18.5 Points (-115)

Simons has cleared this line in five of his last six games and I think he has the potential to have a big night today. The Trail Blazers just unloaded Norman Powell and Robert Covington, leaving a huge hole in Portland's offense.

While C.J. McCollum is still there, Simons has been one of the pillars of the offense. Simons is going to get his shots up with more to go around. He's been off from downtown over the last three games as well. If those numbers return to normal tonight, he'll clear this easily.
