Best NBA Prop Bets Record to Date

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

Best NBA Prop Bets Today

  • Seth Curry OVER 15.5 Points (-120)
  • Josh Giddey UNDER 16.5 Points (-110)
  • Cade Cunningham UNDER 14.5 Points (-110)
  • Jusuf Nurkic OVER 10.5 rebounds (-125)

Seth Curry OVER 15.5 Points (-120)

As long as the Nets’ Big 3 is out, the Brooklyn Nets are Seth Curry’s team. Curry took 18 shots in his first game and scored 23 points in the process. He’s clearly comfortable with the new workload and can take advantage of a terrible Knicks’ defense. 

The Knicks have the seventh-worst defensive rating over the last 10 games. Curry will be able to get his shot off easily and get buckets in the Subway series. With Patty Mills shooting as poorly as he is, there is a clear role for Curry to step into tonight. – Donnavan Smoot

Josh Giddey UNDER 16.5 Points (-110)

Josh Giddey Appreciation Night ends on Wednesday. 

Giddey has been unreal as of late, winning us three different props in the past week on the NBA Best Bets column, but this points total is too high even though Giddey had 28 in the Oklahoma City Thunder’s overtime win over the New York Knicks. 

Giddey has cleared this line just twice in his last 10 games, and he’s only done it 12 times all season. 

The rookie simply doesn’t take enough shots, as his 22-shot game against the Knicks was an anomaly. Prior to that game, he was averaging 12.9 field goal attempts per game over his last 10 contests.

Cade Cunningham UNDER 14.5 Points (-110)

It's obvious by now that the Boston Celtics defense is on another level. Teams are shooting just 36.5% from the floor against them over their last three games. Now they get to host the lowly Detroit Pistons, and I see a similar outcome tonight. 

They should be able to feast on Cade Cunningham, who has scored 15 or more points just once in his last five games, and he has a disappointing 39.5 field goal percentage this season. As a cherry on top, the Pistons have shown that they'll sit Cunningham in games that they get blown out in. He played only 21 minutes in their 22-point loss to Charlotte earlier this month, so if Boston opens up a big lead, which the Celtics likely will, expect Cunningham to ride the pine. – Iain MacMillan

Jusuf Nurkic OVER 10.5 rebounds (-125)

The oddsmakers at WynnBET have gifted us with one less rebound compared to his consensus line across the industry when the Blazers travel to Memphis.

Memphis is a very good rebounding team, and have done well in holding opposing teams to the sixth-fewest boards per game, but after shipping Robert Covington out of town, their next best option on the boards is Justice Winslow, who's only played in five games thus far for Portland.

Nurk has hit this number in seven consecutive games, and has seen his minutes climb to over 33 a game in four of his last five outings. With the Grizzlies playing fast (seventh in the NBA), there should be plenty of chances for him to clean up and get into double digits without breaking a sweat. -- Ben Heisler
