Welcome back to another preview of the best NBA prop bets on Wednesday, December 23, 2021. 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. In this article, we will look at the following players: Domantas Sabonis, Gordon Hayward & Chris Paul.
Best NBA Player Props Today (12/23/21)
Houston Rockets at Indiana Pacers
Player Prop Pick: Domantas Sabonis – Under 12.5 Rebounds (-105)
Sabonis has been taking it easy before the upcoming holidays, failing to reach 10+ rebounds in each of his last two games. He must be feeling the effects of the sickness going on around the world, considering it’s almost like he doesn’t even want to shoot the ball anymore; Sabonis has scored 16 points or fewer in each of his last three games.
Tonight’s matchup against the Rockets gets even easier as they played a tough game on the road last night against the defending-champion Bucks. The Pacers get a nice two-day break before playing their next game, so if they have a comfortable lead against the Rockets, look for them to hold Sabonis back and get him a little extra rest.
Charlotte Hornets at Denver Nuggets
Player Prop Pick: Gordon Hayward – Over 16.5 Points (-110)
Hayward has struggled himself in each of the last two games, failing to even reach 10+ points in either one. A big reason for that was the Hornets not being that competitive lately and hopefully, that will not continue on Thursday.
However, a matchup with the Nuggets might actually work in Hayward’s favor tonight. Since the injury to Michael Porter Jr, Denver has been trying to fill that void left at the 3-spot. Hayward will look to take advantage tonight, and we know that he is a big threat from the 3-point line.
Oklahoma City Thunder at Phoenix Suns
Player Prop Pick: Chris Paul – Over 9.5 Assists (-105)
This should be an easy win for the Suns tonight as they host the Thunder, who were in action last night. Paul has actually landed on nine assists exactly in each of his last two games, but I believe he’ll get it done against a team that isn’t exactly known for their defense.
OKC has been a pesky underdog this season, sporting one of the best ATS records in the NBA this season. With that being said, we’re probably going to get more CP3 than we initially think. I’m certainly not expecting OKC to beat Phoenix outright; although, I could see the game staying within 10 points for most of the night. That extra time on the court will allow CP3 to finally crack the line and get into a double-digit number of helpers.
