Best NBA Prop Bets Today

  • Dejounte Murray OVER 22.5 Points (-125)
  • Luka Doncic UNDER 30.5 Points (-125)
  • Ivica Zubac OVER 9.5 Rebounds (+110)
  • Ivica Zubac OVER 11.5 Points (-115)
  • Coby White OVER 17.5 Points, Rebounds and Assists (-135)

Dejounte Murray OVER 22.5 Points (-125)

This is an easy pick for me on Thursday night, as Dejounte Murray and the San Antonio Spurs are facing the league’s second worst defense (Sacramento Kings) that is also playing the second night of a back-to-back. 

Murray has cleared this number in three of his last six games, and he dropped 25 on the Kings the last time these two teams played. 

Murray has also seen his shots increase as of late, taking 19.2 shots per game over his last 10. With Derrick White in Boston, the ball should be in Murray’s hands a ton in this game. – Peter Dewey

Luka Doncic UNDER 30.5 Points (-125)

Bless my soul. This number is just too high. Luka Doncic has averaged over 33 points per game since the beginning of February, but the Warriors are one of the better defensive teams in the league with the ability to switch with perimeter defenders like Gary Payton II and Andrew Wiggins. 

Ultimately, this number is expecting such an insane output that I can't play it. Even in wins, Doncic is impacting the games in other ways. Against the Lakers, a five point win on Tuesday night, the Mavs guard had 25 points. I'll bank on a little lower than expected value tonight and play the under. – Reed Wallach

Ivica Zubac OVER 9.5 Rebounds (+110)

I am jumping at this chance to take the OVER on Ivica Zubac's rebound total against the Lakers tonight. Since losing Anthony Davis, the Los Angeles Lakers have turned into an abysmal rebounding team, especially in their past few games. Over their last three, the Lakers have only grabbed 44.9% of rebounds, which is embarrassing to put it lightly. Even LeBron looks like he has no interest in rebounding.

Zubac has been hot with the boards recently. He's grabbed double-digit boards in four of his last five starts, and five of his last seven. A similar performance tonight and we'll cash a nice plus-money bet. – Iain MacMillan

Ivica Zubac OVER 11.5 Points (-115)

Zubac has cleared this line in five of the last six games. The one game he missed was against the Lakers, but it was also his worst shooting night of the six games. He also failed to get to the free throw line in that game. Tonight will be a return to the norm for Zubac. The Los Angeles Clippers have dominated the Lakers recently and Zubac is a big part of that.

The Lakers don’t have a solid center they can deploy for the majority of the game, so I expect Zubac to get offensive rebounds and get to the line at least once. – Donnavan Smoot

Coby White OVER 17.5 Points, Rebounds and Assists (-135)

With the Bulls still waiting for the return of Alex Caruso and Lonzo Ball, Coby White has seized his opportunity in the backcourt, with 30-plus minutes in six of his last seven games.

The one time he didn't hit that mark? Last time vs. the Hawks back on Feb. 24 after dealing with foul trouble throughout the night.

Tonight, the 17.5 is a very modest number to clear, especially versus an Atlanta Hawks team that ranks 26th in defensive rating. He's averaging 15.4 points, 4.1 rebounds and 3.9 assists per game, clearing the projected 17.5 by nearly six.

Given White's minutes, even with his scoring down in two of his last three games, this should not be a difficult hurdle to climb. -- Ben Heisler
