Welcome back to another preview of the best NBA prop bets on Thursday, January 20, 2022. In this article, I will identify my best NBA player props tonight to make a maximum profit and get us some more money to get going this week.
Tonight, we will look at three players on the slate — Brandon Ingram, Dorian Finney-Smith & Stephen Curry — and see who is showing the best value in the NBA player prop bets markets.
Best NBA Player Props Today (1/19/22)
New Orleans Pelicans at New York Knicks
NBA Player Prop: Brandon Ingram – Over 22.5 Points (-105)
Aside from his last game, Ingram has been on-point scoring the basketball in recent contests. Against Boston on Monday, Ingram was held to 15 points – and that was his lowest output since the beginning of the month. In short, he did score 22+ points in the five games prior to that.
Tonight’s matchup against the Knicks will certainly present its own set of challenges. However, the Pelicans will likely continue to lean on Ingram given how many injuries this team has faced throughout the season.
Phoenix Suns at Dallas Mavericks
NBA Player Prop: Dorian Finney-Smith – Over 4.5 Rebounds (-120)
Finney-Smith has been a force on the glass recently, grabbing 16 rebounds over his last two games. A lot of that has to do with the uptick in minutes he’s been given, playing at least 34 minutes in each of those last games.
The Suns have been struggling on the glass in recent games, and that is now starting to show as they’re right around the middle of the road in rebounding efficiency. Finney-Smith’s uptick in minutes put him in an absolutely glorious spot tonight.
Indiana Pacers at Golden State Warriors
NBA Player Prop: Stephen Curry – Under 23.5 Points (+100)
This is an auspicious number for Curry here at 23.5 points, considering he could be due for a breakout any night now. Oddly enough, Curry hasn’t scored 20+ points in each of his last three games.
The Warriors are favored by 11.5 points over the Pacers tonight, so this could be another early night for Curry. In those three games not scoring 20+ points, he hasn’t even played 30+ minutes in any of those games. Tonight, I believe the Warriors blow out the Pacers and that’ll put less urgency on Curry to score.
