There's a full slate of NBA games tonight and while the BetSided crew has you covered with their best bets of the night, here are three of my favorite props for the night.

Last Friday, I went 2-1. Let's see if we can get a perfect 3-0 tonight. Let’s break down the picks!

Best Prop Bets Today

  • Tobias Harris OVER 20.5 Points (+100)
  • Jayson Tatum UNDER 27.5 Points (-115)
  • Trae Young OVER 28.5 Points (-115)

Thunder vs. 76ers:Tobias Harris OVER 20.5 Points (+100)

Tobias Harris heard his name in all the trade rumors and decided to show just how much he deserved the stay. He’s cleared this line in the last two games and I think he does it again. With Seth Curry gone and James Harden on his way, this will be one of the last times Harris will be the No. 2 option. 

Also, the fact I can get plus odds on his line makes me love prop even more. 

Nuggets vs. Celtics: Jayson Tatum UNDER 27.5 Points (-115)

The Celtics have been winning, but it hasn’t been because of Tatum’s scoring. He’s missed this line in six of his last seven games and has put his effort into stopping the ball. In the last five games, Tatum has only taken more than 20 shots once. Other than that night, he hasn’t shot the ball a ton. The Nuggets haven’t played the best defense in the past few games, but their slow pace will keep the scoring to a minimum.

Spurs vs. Hawks: Trae Young OVER 28.5 Points (-115)

Young has cleared this line in three of the last five games. The two games where he missed it were accompanied by 0-for nights. I don’t foresee Young having another terrible night from three, so I’ll take the over here. 

The Spurs’ defense is average at best and without Derrick White, the entire defense is going to look different. Young is one of the best offensive engines in the league and I doubt the Spurs can slow him down.
