Best NBA Prop Bets Today

  • Kevon Looney OVER 7.5 Rebounds (-125)
  • Julius Randle OVER 20.5 Points (-115)
  • Evan Fournier OVER 14.5 Points (-105)

Kevon Looney OVER 7.5 Rebounds (-125)

Kevon Looney has been a rebounding machine as of late, and I'm going to ride the hot streak tonight when he and the Golden State Warriors take on the Detroit Pistons. Looney has grabbed 12 boards in two-straight games, and he's surpassed the number of 7.5 four times in his last six outings.

He gets to add to that tally tonight when he takes on the Pistons, who are the worst rebounding team in the NBA. Detroit grabs just 47.5% of available rebounds, and that number gets even worse on the road, grabbing only 46.5% of boards. In the Warriors Nov. 19 game against the Pistons, Looney grabbed 12 rebounds. A repeat performance tonight will cash this bet with ease. – Iain MacMillan

Julius Randle OVER 20.5 Points (-115)

The Minnesota Timberwolves are one of the fastest teams in the league, fourth this season and second this month in terms of pace, so we can expect a ton of possessions. While Julius Randle and R.J. Barrett have the same point prop, I'll side with Randle who is due for some positive regression. 

The New York Knicks big man is shooting 39% from the floor on 17 attempts per game and just 64% from the line. The volume is there, but the percentage isn't.

Also keep in mind that Minnesota leads the league in personal fouls. Randle is the Knicks No. 1 target and can get to the line a ton in this one to go over his number. – Reed Wallach

Evan Fournier OVER 14.5 Points (-105)

Evan Fournier was awful in Monday’s loss to Charlotte, going just 2-for-9 from the field and scoring six points, but I’m buying how he’s played in bounce-back games. 

What has Fournier done following his last four single-digit scoring performances?

  • Dec. 16: 23 points (8-for-12 FG, 4-for-7 3P FG)
  • Dec. 25: 15 points (6-for-12 FG, 3-for-6 3P FG)
  • Jan. 2: 20 points (6-for-14 FG, 4-for-10 3P FG)
  • Jan. 6: 41 points (15-for-25 FG, 10-for-14 3P FG)

Fournier is streaky, but when he gets hot, he’s piping hot. He’s averaging 13.5 points per game while shooting 41.6 percent from the field and 39.1 percent from deep. 

I think he gets going against the Minnesota Timberwolves in what is a much-needed bounce back for the Knicks. – Peter Dewey
