Tuesday NBA Player Prop Picks: Edwards vs. Bridges; Curry vs. Giddey

Sixers celtics game 2 player props Jaylen brown Jayson Tatum

The Association resumes after a night off to let the NCAA Championship shine, but we’re back with four NBA player prop picks for Tuesday’s 13-game slate. This is the final week of the regular season, so playoff positioning remains at stake for a number of teams.

NBA Player Prop Picks | Tuesday, April 4

Deni Avdija Over 15.5 Points

There’s no denying that Avdija dropped the ball in his last two outings (7.5 points, 22.7% from the field), but opportunity is king and that’s what Avdija is in line for against the Bucks.

Bradley Beal, Kyle Kuzma, Kristaps Porzingis, and Monte Morris will sit out tonight’s contest, freeing up immense usage for the likes of Avdija to assume. Oddsmakers didn’t take long to adjust lines on Avdija’s points – 15.5 increased from 13.5 after a couple of good games – but Avdija still reached at least 16 points in three of five outings prior to his two-game skid.

Mikal Bridges Over 27.5 Points

Brooklyn and Minnesota are quietly barrelling in opposite directions. The Nets remain in position to punch a berth to the postseason despite rebuilding their roster midseason. The Timberwolves, meanwhile, are clinging to the West’s No. 9 seed.

Bridges is perhaps the primary reason Brooklyn remains in position to avoid the play-in tourney, and he’ll be busy once again if the Nets are to deliver a victory (they’re laying a point as home favorites). The Nets won four of their last five contests after halting a five-game skid. Bridges is averaging 34 points on 49.5/47.5/90.8% on heavy volume from all three levels over the recent five-game stretch.

Anthony Edwards (+2.5 Points) vs. Mikal Bridges

As electric as Bridges’ play has been of late — and as a member of the Nets overall — we can’t ignore Edwards receiving 2.5 points in this spot. It’s no lie that Bridges is outproducing Edwards in recent contests. However, Edwards still notched 37 and 31 points within the last week.

Karl-Anthony Towns is listed as questionable, a factor that does influence our position. Even if Towns plays though, we’re confident enough in Edwards’ prolific scoring ability to take the points in his pairing with Bridges.

Josh Giddey + Stephen Curry Over 12.5 Assists

Both the Warriors – barely holding onto the West’s No. 6 seed – and the Thunder – hanging onto the No. 10 seed by a thread, are in dire need of a tally in the win column. Oddsmakers peg tonight’s contest with a healthy total, suggesting a quality offensive showing by both sides.

The Dubs are laying multiple possessions, not a surprise considering their home performance this season. Another quality showing will likely come with a strong performance from Curry, who has games of nine and eight assists across a recent four-game homestand. Curry can be expected to deliver a strong performance, providing Giddey with the floor from which he can push their combined dime total to the Over.
