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.

I went 1-2 in last night's picks, but missed out on Saddiq Bey's UNDER by one point. Let's see if we can have a 3-0 Saturday night!

Best Prop Bets Today

  • Jalen Brunson UNDER 5.5 Assists (-135)
  • Kyrie Irving OVER 24.5 Points (-115)
  • Spencer Dinwiddie OVER 11.5 Points (-105)

Jalen Brunson UNDER 5.5 Assists (-135)

Brunson has only cleared this line twice in the last seven games. With Luka Doncic running point and the Mavericks' offense slowing down, there aren't a lot of points to go around in Dallas. The Pacers haven't been great on defense this entire season, but I don't trust the Mavericks to get into a shootout with anybody. Brunson's role as a creator has been slightly minimized and its used for him to be more of a scorer.

Unless the Mavericks have a crazy efficient day on offense, I don't see Brunson clearing this line.

Kyrie Irving OVER 24.5 Points (-115)

With Kyrie Irving back in the lineup, the Nets are going to be a problem on offense against the Warriors. Kyrie is averaging just under 24 points a game this season, but he is shooting 50% from the field. He is very efficient scoring the ball and without a dominant defender to guard him, Irving should be able to score at will.

His three-point percentage has dropped a little this season, but that can be attributed to rust. Either way, Irving and Harden are going to have great games today and Irving should be at the top of your scoring prop list.

Spencer Dinwiddie OVER 11.5 Points (-105)

Dinwiddie has been inconsistent this year, and just plain bad at times this season. He's had a bad couple of games, which makes me like these odds. I'm expecting some positive regression after two games shooting under 25% from the field.

Dinwiddie has cleared this line in four of his last eight games, leading me to believe he'll be decent tonight. Despite his struggles, he's still getting a good amount of shots to justify taking the over on this scoring prop. I think he clears this line regardless, but a good game from three could lock this up early.
