Best NBA Player Props Today (12/30/21)
Philadelphia 76ers at Brooklyn Nets
Player Prop Pick: James Harden – Over 23.5 Points (-110)
Harden has been rocking and rolling for the Nets in recent nights, with 75 total points over his last two games. Both of those games were in Los Angeles, and you might think he was just putting on a show. No no, both of those LA teams are just old and uninterested in defense at this stage of the season.
Tonight’s matchup against the 76ers will be a tough one, considering it’s a division opponent and they know the Nets well. However, Harden has scored at least 26 points against Philly in 16 of the last 17 meetings. This is another game where Kevin Durant should be available again for the Nets, so that’s where most of the 76ers’ attention on defense should be.
Cleveland Cavaliers at Washington Wizards
Player Prop Pick: Evan Mobley – Under 3.5 Assists (+105)
We’re getting strong value here on the under with Mobley, who isn’t necessarily known for his distribution skills. In fact, Mobley hasn’t exceeded 3.5 assists in each of his last seven games. On the season, he is only averaging 2.4, meaning he is well below where he needs to be.
Mobley is a big guy that is focused more on scoring and rebounding the basketball. I went over the stats above, and I feel like this is as good as it gets in terms of value. If Mobley achieves this feat for the first time in eight games, that’ll be on us.
Golden State Warriors at Denver Nuggets
Player Prop Pick: Kevon Looney – Over 6.5 Rebounds (-110)
With Draymond Green out of the Warriors’ lineup, Looney will be afforded all the opportunities in the world to grab plenty of boards. With Green on the sidelines, Looney has increased his playing time to 26 and 28 in each of the last two games.
The Warriors just faced the Nuggets in their last game on Tuesday, which was actually a very low-scoring contest. I would expect more of the same with the two teams having familiarity with one another, thus giving Looney more rebounding opportunities.
