PrizePicks NBA Player Props Top Picks
Jaren Jackson Jr., Memphis Grizzlies
Pick: Over 4.0 Blocks + Steals
Alright, this total is the highest we've seen when it comes to Blocks+Steals prop for JJJ with this number usually being set at just 3.5 but the books have to do something to protect themselves because the man has just been a defensive animal when it comes this defensive production on his home floor this season. To put it into context below are his per-game Home/Road splits for blocks and steals this season.
- Home: 4.3 Blocks / 1.2 Steals
- Road: 2.1 Blocks / 0.7 Steals
So, as you can see, Jackson is averaging a total of 5.5 Blocks + Steals at home this season per game compared to just 2.8 Blocks + Steals on the road.
His prop tonight sits at just 4.0 and as you can see from the chart below thanks to props.cash, he's had a lot of success hitting the over this season on this total including having already notched a game against the Jazz where he had eight combined blocks and steals.
Anthony Davis, Los Angeles Lakers
Pick: Over 11.5 Rebounds
We've been targeting the Anthony Davis rebound props for most of the season and he has rarely let us down, hitting the over on tonight's total in 65% of the games played this season. When playing at least 30 minutes that total jumps to 68%. LeBron James is questionable to play tonight but even with LBJ active, we've seen Davis aggressive on the glass. We've also seen Davis in two matchups against the Pelicans this season and he's gone over 11.5 rebounds in each of those two matchups, totaling 14 and 16 rebounds. Over the last five games Anthony Davis is averaging 14.8 rebounds per contest and he has hit the over on this rebound total in five of the last six matchups.
Zach LaVine, Chicago Bulls
Pick: Over 27.5 Points
With Bulls are going to be without DeMar DeRozan here tonight in their matchup against the Indiana Pacers. With DDR off the floor this season LaVine has a team-leading 31.7% usage rate and gets a 3.5% usage bump. There aren't too many numbers this season where the over is a clear and obvious play for LaVine given the fact that DeRozan has only missed two games this season. In those two games LaVine went under, scoring 25 points against the Thunder and 27 points against the Warriors.
Again, the scoreboard for this prop does not paint the over in an appealing light but what I do like here is the matchup against the Pacers and that's why I am rolling with LaVine here. The Pacers rank 29th in defense against three-pointers, allowing opponents to shoot 37.3% from three-point range. They also rank 22nd in total points allowed to their opponent per game and we are looking at a game total of 231.5.
Given the usage bump for LaVine with DeRozan out of the lineup and the matchup against the Pacers I am riding with LaVine in this spot and taking the over on 27.5 points.
