Best NBA Player Props Today (12/28/21)
Milwaukee Bucks at Orlando Magic
Player Prop Pick: Giannis Antetokounmpo – Triple-Double (+2000)
The Bucks are massive 13-point favorites tonight, so we know we’re at least getting Antetokounmpo in a very favorable matchup. If there was a problem, of course, it would be that the Bucks kick the Magic’s ass too much at the onset – and that is a real possibility. However, there is that old adage from the DFS landscape that says don’t fade the stars just because of a blowout possibility.
Giannis can still get his stats on a personal level before the score gets too out of hand. This should be a game anyway that he wants to distribute more and get his teammates some more shot attempts in a game that doesn’t mean a whole lot in the grand scheme of things.
New York Knicks at Minnesota Timberwolves
Player Prop Pick: Kemba Walker – Over 28.5 Points + Rebounds + Assists (-120)
Walker is coming off two games recently where he topped this number of 28.5 PRA in points alone! On Christmas Day, he even added a triple-double when only able to muster up 10 points in scoring. In any event, we’re seeing Walker be incredibly productive in almost every aspect of the game.
Tonight, the Knicks will face a Timberwolves team that is playing their second game in as many nights. The spread is a bit odd for that scenario, as New York is only favored by four points. Ultimately, it should mean that we see a pretty competitive game, and Walker has played 40+ minutes in each of the Knicks’ last three games.
Denver Nuggets at Golden State Warriors
Player Prop Pick: Stephen Curry – Over 29.5 Points (-115)
Yes, it’s another night of Curry going over his prop number of points scored – what a shocker! However, there is a boatload of good reasoning to go along with the selection this evening.
The Warriors come into tonight’s matchup against the Nuggets with two full days of rest, so that means Curry’s legs will be fresh enough to take as many shot attempts as possible. In addition, Golden State has crushed Denver in recent memory, winning six and covering seven of the last eight matchups against them. Of course, the Nuggets’ roster is a lot less deadly than usual this season. Look for Curry to light it up on this Tuesday night.
