What’s on the table today?: NBA player prop bets for what is setting up to be a great night of nationally televised NBA games. Enjoy the feast with these tasty player prop treats!
Bryn Forbes MIL vs TOR
- Over/Under 12.5 points. Forbes is currently averaging 9.5 points per this season, and against TOR on Tuesday night Bryn scored 11 in the Bucks 124-113 loss. I see Bryn going for roughly the same, but with Milwaukee on a four game losing streak the team just might “let it fly” giving Forbes who’s starting in place of Jrue Holiday right now, an opportunity to go over this number.
I’d say YES to taking Forbes over 12.5, but it’ll be close.
Giannis MIL vs TOR
- Over/Under 31.5 points. This is another tough one to gauge, but after watching Giannis go for 34 in the Bucks loss to the Raptors on Tuesday, my inclination is that Giannis doesn’t score as much tonight (I’m projecting around 28) in hope that the team overall can have a more balanced approach and hopefully a win.
I’m going to say NO to taking the OVER and instead would play this prop UNDER.
Lebron James LAL vs BRK
- Over/Under 7.5 assists. Easy money here. Lebron is once again DISHING it averaging nearly 8 assists a game this season. However, in the month of February King James is averaging 9.1 assists a night, and has seen his assist average go from 6.8 in December, to 7.7 in January, and now up to 9.1 this month. With Anthony Davis out, LBJ is doing even more of the work and with a matchup against his former teammate Kyrie Irving, on national TV, he’ll be looking to put on a show.
Like I said, easy money. Take the OVER in this prop.
