Best NBA Prop Bets Record to Date

Here are the plays our team is eyeing for tonight’s slate with all odds via WynnBET:

Dejounte Murray OVER 21.5 Points (-130)

Murray seems emboldened by his All-Star selection and has been firing lately, with at least shot attempts in each of his last three games. He has a 28% usage rate over his last 15 games and with the highest total on the board (237), oddsmakers are expecting a fast-paced, high-scoring game against the Hornets today.That means a lot of Murray, and I love his chances of getting over this prop. -- Joe Summers

Ja Morant 3+ Three Pointers (+200)

Morant has hit this prop in each of his last three games, as his usage rate has exploded and he’s taking the league by storm. He takes on a Magic squad today that allows the 6th-most three-point attempts per game in the league at just over 18. This makes sense, given that the Magic have Mo Bamba and Wendell Carter Jr. down low to intimidate opponents.

Orlando plays at the 2nd-fastest pace in the league over their last 15 games as well, which leaves opportunities for leak-outs and open three’s. At +200, I’m more than happy to take a shot on Morant continuing his torrid play. He has 20 three-point attempts combined in his last three games and I think he’ll keep firing. -- Joe Summers

Klay Thompson 4+ Three Pointers (+165)

I need to find some ways to fade the Lakers, who appear to be hell bent on trying as little as possible on the defensive side of the ball. This also sets up as a great 'get right' spot for the Warriors, who have dropped three straight and seven of their last ten.

I'm going to look to Klay Thompson to have a big outing as he drained five three's against the Lakers last meeting and is averaging just over eight three ball's a game since the beginning of February. The volume will be there for Thompson, and I expect him to have a big night against a careless Lakers team. -- Reed Wallach

Steph Curry OVER 34.5 Points + Assists (+105)

The Golden State Warriors need Curry to step up tonight after suffering three straight losses heading into the weekend. I’m willing to be the future Hall-of-Famer comes through. Curry is averaging 25.7 points and 6.5 assists per game on the year which means an average game would put him close to this total.

He’s gone over this total in two of his last three games and put up at least 25 points in five of his last eight. In that span, he’s averaging 27.1 points per game.

The Lakers have the 26th ranked scoring defense in the league and allow teams to shoot almost 35 percent from three. LA allows the 21st most three-point attempts per game which bodes well for Curry. The Lakers also allow the 26th most assists to other offenses and I expect big things from Curry tonight as a result. -- Matt De Saro
