3 Best NBA Player Props for Tuesday, April 9

We’re in the final week of the NBA regular season, and the action each night feels like a playoff game. With more than half of the playoff seeds still up for grabs, only one of the 14 games on Tuesday’s slate have two teams with no potential playoff teams involved.

The past two weeks’ picks have been exceptional. With three days of perfect picks – including Friday’s best four bets – I’ve hit 75% of my player prop bets during this hot streak.

We’ll continue closing out the regular season on a tear by covering the three best NBA player prop bets for Tuesday, April 9. Best of luck tonight, folks.

Live player props data coming soon for Giannis Antetokounmpo.

Milwaukee Bucks’ Giannis Antetokounmpo UNDER 45.5 Pts + Reb + Ast

The top two Eastern Conference seeds meet up in Milwaukee tonight as the Boston Celtics (62-16) face off against the Bucks (47-31). Boston has cemented homecourt advantage throughout the playoffs with the NBA’s best record.

Milwaukee, however, still has work to do. The Bucks are one game ahead of the Orlando Magic and New York Knicks for the second seed, and a win tonight would help the team hold onto their spot. Look for Milwaukee to turn to its star forward Giannis Antetokounmpo tonight.

Bettors should not expect Antetokounmpo to cover this player prop bet, however. In two previous games against Boston, the Bucks’ star has not surpassed 44 combined points, rebounds, and assists in either matchup. The Celtics defense will hold firm again tonight, keeping Antetokounmpo from covering this player prop bet.

Jalen BrunsonOver 6.5 Assists
Jalen BrunsonUnder 7.5 Assists

New York Knicks’ Jalen Brunson OVER 7.5 Assists

New York is in the thick of a five-team group all with two games of each other. Should the Knicks (46-32) win out, the team could climb as high as second in the Eastern Conference paired with a little bit of luck.

The Bulls (37-41) are a team with little to play for and multiple distractions. Chicago head coach Billy Donovan is rumored to be Kentucky’s top target to replace John Calipari, and the Bulls are assured of a play-in game away from the United Center.

With Chicago’s turmoil, expect Knicks guard Jalen Brunson to have a monster outing. Over his last four games, the guard has eclipsed the eight-assist mark every time. Another double-figure assist total is not out of character tonight as Brunson should easily cover this player prop bet Tuesday night.

Live player props data coming soon for Stephen Curry.

Golden State Warriors’ Steph Curry OVER 26.5 Points

While the Los Angeles Lakers (45-34) have an outside chance of evading the play-in game, the Golden State Warriors (43-35) are all but mathematically eliminated from escaping that fate. Still, which team these two will face in the playoffs remains an open question with the bottom of the Western Conference a log jam of teams with similar records.

In big games, Warriors guard Steph Curry steps up. Against the Lakers this season, Curry has exploded for 109 points - including a 46-point outburst - in three games. With both LeBron James and Anthony Davis potentially sitting tonight for the Lakers, expect Curry to continue his torrid scoring stretch against the team and easily eclipse this player prop bet.
