We’re bouncing around the league to find our favorite Monday NBA player props. Tonight’s NBA schedule features eight contests, including Hawks vs. Blazers on NBA TV to close out the evening.
Top NBA Player Props | Monday, Jan. 30
Anthony Edwards Over 27.5 Points
Edwards just torched the Kings on Saturday (14-for-21, 34 points) and the two will share the floor again tonight. Edwards has actually torched just about everyone over his last 10 – 29.6 PPG, 49.3%.
His efficiency dipped prior to his recent stretch as he dealt with a troublesome hip contusion. That ailment appears to be in the rearview mirror though as he’s shooting 44% from three and 86% from the stripe since January 13. Sportsbooks peg this as a competitive, relatively high-scoring contest, so Edwards should remain busy tonight.
Draymond Green Over 8.5 Rebounds | Over 7.5 Assists
The Warriors and Thunder both rank top 10 in pace and shot attempts, so there will be no shortage of possessions and field goal attempts in this one. However, the Thunder are not particularly efficient, theoretically leading to rebound opportunities for Green.
We like what Green will be able to do from a distribution standpoint, especially with Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and Jordan Poole each shooting well of late. The Thunder will be without Lugentz Dort, their third leading scorer and top-rated defender. Wager these props individually or in combination (Over 15.5 at DraftKings Sportsbook).
Kyle Kuzma Over 23.5 Points
Kuzma is in the midst of a nice scoring run. Prior to Saturday, he attempted at least 20 shots from the field in seven straight games. Kuzma will have to share a bit more as Bradley Beal rounds into peak form, but it’s still Kuzma who leads the Wizards in shot attempts on the season.
The Spurs feature the NBA’s worst defense by traditional and advanced measures. The Wizards are 6-point favorites on the road with totals a hair below 240. As long as San Antonio keeps things respectable at home, Kuzma should see the volume necessary to reach 24 points.
Damian Lillard Under 4.5 Three-Pointers
Lillard is enjoying a torrid stretch of play, averaging 38.4 points on 53.9% shooting from the field over his last 10. That includes 40.6% from three-point range as well. We’re leaning Under in this spot nonetheless.
Five is a hefty number, even for Lillard. He’s “only” reached five threes in 13 of 37 games and the Hawks feature one of the league’s better three-point defenses. The absence of big man Jusuf Nurkic hurts the Blazers’ overall offensive efficiency, something to keep in mind in terms of this particular wager.
