Best NBA Prop Bets Record to Date

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

Best NBA Prop Bets Today

  • Kyrie Irving UNDER 6.5 Assists (+100)
  • Giannis Antetokounmpo OVER 31.5 Points (-105)
  • Devin Booker OVER 25.5 Points (-115)
  • Jalen Green UNDER  24.5 Points (-130)

Kyrie Irving UNDER 6.5 Assists (+100)

Kevin Durant has taken over as the Brooklyn Nets’ primary facilitator with Kyrie Irving playing full time, and Irving hasn't gone over this number in four of his six games since the New York City vaccine mandate was lifted. 

This matchup for the Nets can go multiple ways, if it's a blowout Durant and Irving can sit more as the team prepares for a must-win against the New York Knicks on Wednesday, or it's tight and the Nets defer to the two stars to go off. 

The numbers don't warrant an over bet considering Irving has been more of an isolation scorer than a passer, so I'll take the cheap under. – Reed Wallach

Giannis Antetokounmpo OVER 31.5 Points (-105)

Although the line is a little high, I’m all for it. Giannis Antetokounmpo is playing the Chicago Bulls, who clearly have no idea how to stop him. 

He’s cleared the 40-point mark in two of the last three games and has dominated Chicago this season. He shot 75 percent from the field in the last game and missed the line because played so little during the blowout. 

He’s already scored 34 on the Bulls once, and with a weak front line, I’ll trust him to do it again. – Donnavan Smoot

Devin Booker OVER 25.5 Points (-115)

I know the Phoenix Suns should blow out the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday, but I’m going to take a shot on Devin Booker to play enough to clear this line since he’s been red hot as of late. 

Booker has cleared 25.5 points in nine of his last 12 games and is averaging 31.0 points per game on 52.5 percent shooting from the field over that stretch. 

He missed Phoenix’s last game, but Booker dropped 41 on the Memphis Grizzlies his last time out. The Lakers stink on defense, ranking 28th in defensive rating over their last 10 games, so I love Booker to hit around his season average of 26.6 points per game. 

Jalen Green UNDER  24.5 Points (-130)

Over the last four games, Jalen Green has looked more and more worthy of the No. 2 pick in last year's NBA Draft. He's dropped 30-plus points in the last four games with a usage rate of over 25 percent in each matchup. 

Let's also consider who he's done this against: The San Antonio Spurs, Sacramento Kings (twice) and Minnesota Timberwolves: all four losses in which they've given up 120+ points in the process.

The Houston Rockets now travel to Brooklyn to take on a Nets team that actually may be desperate for the first time all season. They're also 17.5-point road dogs at WynnBET!

Unless this game ends up close, I think this game is completely out of reach for the last-place Rockets midway through the second half, likely giving Green a much needed breather after huge minutes in those last four games. The number on his point total is too inflated for my liking, based on those last four easier defensive matchups as well as opportunistic game scripts. -- Ben Heisler
