Best NBA Player Props Today (1/11/22)
Phoenix Suns at Toronto Raptors
Player Prop Pick: Pascal Siakam – Over 23.5 Points (-112)
As the Raptors move along on this current winning streak, Siakam has gotten back in a grove once again as well. Over the last three games, he has dropped point-totals of 29 and 33 points, with one of them coming in a tough matchup (on the back end of a back-to-back set) against the Milwaukee Bucks.
Tonight’s matchup against the Suns doesn’t get much easier, but they are coming off a game in which they lost by 23 to the Miami Heat. If you’re going to take a run at the Suns, now may be the right time to do so.
Golden State Warriors at Memphis Grizzlies
Player Prop Pick: Ja Morant – Under 25.5 Points (-105)
The Grizzlies-Warriors game will undoubtedly be the best matchup of the night, with a fantastic individual back-and-forth between Morant and Stephen Curry. Perhaps, things will be downgraded as Morant and failed to exceed 25.5 points in each of his last two games, and that includes a 16-point output in his last game against the Clippers.
We know the Warriors are widely regarded as a deadly 3-point shooting team. However, they do have the NBA’s best defensive efficiency by a wide margin. Look for Golden State to throw a few different looks in Morant’s way, making him more of a distributor than scorer tonight.
Denver Nuggets at Los Angeles Clippers
Player Prop Pick: Nikola Jokic – Over 7.5 Assists (-105)
The assist numbers have been picking back up for Jokic, with 24 of them over the last three games. In this matchup against the Clippers, Jokic will be able to pull his individual matchup, Ivica Zubac, out of the paint and out to the top of the key. Clearly, this is not where you want a center to be playing, so that almost makes Zubac a fish out of water.
If all of this comes to fruition, Jokic will basically be able to run the point from the center position at the top of the key. Jokic is averaging seven assists per game this season, not too far off tonight’s mark of 7.5.
