Best NBA Prop Bets Today

  • Kyle Lowry UNDER 12.5 Points (-120)
  • Luka Doncic OVER 26.5 Points  (-125)
  • Kevin Durant OVER 27.5 Points (-125)

Heat vs. Bulls: Kyle Lowry UNDER 12.5 Points (-120)

Kyle Lowry has struggled shooting the ball this year in a major way. He’s shooting 41% from the field and under 30% from downtown. He hasn’t cleared this line in four of his last five games and tonight won’t be a game where he does clear it. Lowry will have to face pressure from either Lonzo Ball or Alex Caruso all night long, and that will take its toll on him. I expect the Heat to win this game, but don’t think it will be because of Lowry. 

Wizards vs. Mavericks: Luka Doncic OVER 26.5 Points  (-125)

Everything the Mavericks do offensively is run through Doncic. In his first game back against the Clippers, Doncic scored 26 points exactly and now gets to play a worse defense. He should be healthier than he was on Tuesday and well-rested. Doncic hasn’t been particularly efficient this season, but the volume of shots is what makes me like this line. The Wizards will likely put Kentavious Caldwell-Pope on Doncic to slow him down, but Doncic has the advantage every day of the week in that matchup.

Suns vs. Nets: Kevin Durant OVER 27.5 Points (-125)

Durant has looked off since the second quarter of the Nets’ game against the Warriors. He was on a scoring tear prior to that game and since then, he hasn’t hit 30. However, Durant is still as efficient as ever -- shooting just under 50% from the floor in the last three games. The Suns have been dominant, but they don’t have anyone that can stay with Kevin Durant all game long. If Mikal Bridges or Jae Crowder defend Durant, he will shoot over them all night long. THis is going to be a bounce back game for Durant and he will help end the Suns’ winning streak.
