Best NBA Player Props Today (1/7/22)
Milwaukee Bucks at Brooklyn Nets
Player Prop Pick: Kevin Durant – Over 30.5 Points (-110)
The Nets are back at home, so that means Kyrie Irving isn’t allowed to play. I know, it’s stupid, but these are the cards he has been dealt. With that being said, a lot of the scoring responsibilities will be put on Durant’s shoulders tonight against the Bucks.
Granted, this will be a tough individual matchup against Giannis Antetokounmpo. However, I have faith in KD to get his point-total over 30.5 points. Durant just dropped a 39-point heater on the Indiana Pacers in their last game, so he’s ready to get back to it in what should be a high-tempo matchup.
Washington Wizards at Chicago Bulls
Player Prop Pick: Nikola Vucevic – Over 11.5 Rebounds (-125)
Vucevic has been on an absolute tear in grabbing rebounds, with at least 12 in each of his last six games. Tonight’s matchup against the Wizards isn’t necessarily one that is positive or negative; in fact, it’s dead even in the middle.
Chicago’s pace has been a lot faster in recent games, and now it ranks 10th in the NBA for that particular stat. Surprisingly, Washington is playing a lot slower than usual this season, but this is still a spot that Vucevic should smash in.
Atlanta Hawks at Los Angeles Lakers
Player Prop Pick: LeBron James – Over 30.5 Points (+100)
If anyone was going to slow down LeBron and the Lakers, I doubt it would be the Hawks. As a matter of fact, I know it won’t be the Hawks and their defensive efficiency that ranks fourth-worst in the NBA.
LeBron has been going crazy in recent games, scoring at least 30 points in eight of his last nine games. Watching a lot of Hawks’ games recently, there is no one that can hang with this man on a one-on-one basis.
