Tonight’s NBA slate includes 11 contests, including a pair of nationally televised games.
The Atlanta Hawks visit the New York Knicks while the Phoenix Suns host the Boston Celtics. Here are four Wednesday NBA props to consider for tonight’s showcases as posted at top NBA betting sites.
Top Player Props for Wednesday NBA Action
Trae Young Over 36.5 Points + Assists (-110, BetMGM)
Young struggled with his shot upon his return from a one-game absence (6-of-19), but Madison Square Garden has a way of injecting visitors with seemingly superhuman ability.
He hung 45 points and dished eight assists in his lone visit to the Garden in March 2022, and it won’t be a surprise to see him locked in from the start tonight.
Julius Randle Over 21.5 Points (-118, FanDuel)
Randle is one third of the Knicks’ three-headed monster, but he and Jalen Brunson are shouldering a bit more of the shooting load at RJ Barrett’s expense.
The Hawks are down two frontcourt starters – DeAndre Hunter and John Collins – which theoretically shifts the advantage in Randle’s direction.
FanDuel sets the total at 232.5, so there should be plenty of opportunity for Randle to exceed 20 shot attempts for the third time in five games.
Devin Booker Over 38.5 Points, Rebounds Plus Assists (-113, FanDuel)
Booker totaled 29 shots over his last two games after averaging 26 attempts across the previous three. Coming back home after a back-to-back on the road should provide a breath of fresh air for Booker and the Suns – especially with the NBA-best Celtics in town.
Booker will have the pesky Marcus Smart to contend with, but he does a good job filling the stat sheet. Look for him to deliver well-rounded statistical production in tonight’s contest.
Jayson Tatum Over 3.5 Three-Point Makes (+130, DraftKings)
This prop comes with a bit more risk, but there’s still reason to like the Over. On the negative side, Tatum will likely see a lot of Mikal Bridges, who’s considered one of the best up-and-coming perimeter defenders in the league, and the Suns play quality defense overall.
However, Tatum attempted at least 10 shots from beyond the arc in six of his last 10 games. DraftKings suggests this will be a close, high scoring matchup (Celtics -1, O/U 230.5), and a nationally televised game against the Western Conference leaders is the type of atmosphere Tatum and the Celtics will be up for.
