The NBA season is down to its last week, but I'm ready for the last Saturday of the NBA season. 

I've got one spread pick and two player props tonight. Before we get into the game, let's jump into the player props.

All odds listed are via WynnBET.

Best Prop Bets Today

  • Kyle Lowry OVER 6.5 Assists (-105)
  • Bam Adebayo OVER 9.5 Rebounds (-115)
  • Nets -2 vs. Hawks

Kyle Lowry OVER 6.5 Assists (-105)

Kyle Lowry cleared this line in his last game, and is 1-1 against the Bulls this season clearing this line. Lowry hasn’t been getting a lot of assists recently, but the Bulls provide a good opportunity to pass this line. Chicago doesn’t play well against the top teams in the league, so I’m expecting a big performance from the Heat in general. With Miami set to have a big offensive performance, I’m waiting for Lowry to control this offense.

Bam Adebayo OVER 9.5 Rebounds (-115)

Adebayo has cleared this line in his last two games. On top of that, he’s finished with nine rebounds in four of his last seven games. Chicago is the worst rebounding team in the league. Miami and Adebayo will feast on the boards tonight. Adebayo can easily clear this line if he is active on the offensive glass. Considering how small the Bulls are, this seems like a good spot for Adebayo.

Nets -2 vs. Hawks

For the Hawks, this game is all about how healthy Trae Young can be. Young left their last game due to a groin injury, but eventually came back. If Young is able to go the entire game with no hiccups, Atlanta has a chance. However, as the total suggests, this will be a high-scoring affair. In these types of games, I'll go with the team that has two of the most offensively gifted superstars in the league.

These teams have a 0.4-point difference between them in net rating over the last 10 games. This is going to be a close game. If the Hawks are able to attack the Nets from the three-point line, they'll have a serious chance of winning this game.

Kevin Durant is one of the three best players in the world and I think his impact alone will push the Nets over the top.

Lean: Nets -2 (-110)
