Our NBA player props finished with a perfect 3-0 sweep last night! We must say that it was a pretty SWEEP feeling (lol) when Jalen Duren grabbed a rebound in garbage time to go over his rebounding prop. LaMelo Ball and Joel Embiid easily stayed under their point and assist numbers to make it a fantastic evening!
Thursday means only 1 thing. It's time for an NBA on TNT doubleheader! The Chicago Bulls will take on the Brooklyn Nets in the early matchup. The LA Lakers will welcome the Milwaukee Bucks in the nightcap.

We hate fading a big fella like Capela in the rebounding department. He has the size and aggressiveness to dominate the glass and pull down rebounds in bunches. However, as always, we're trusting our projections and what the market's telling us.
Speaking of the market, most online sportsbooks have Capela's rebounding total shaded quite a bit towards the Under. Caesars Sportsbook has the Under at -143, while BetMGM isn't too far off of them at -140. Those are strong indicators of what way the books are leaning.
The matchup also won't be too easy for Capela tonight against Phoenix. The Suns rank 8th in the league in rebounds per game. We don't see Capela pulling down 11 rebounds or more tonight, especially since he'll be competing with Suns center Deandre Ayton. Play the Under!
Oh yes, it's our old buddy Paolo Banchero. We seem to include him in our lineups once or twice a week. Tonight, we're fading the former Duke Blue Devil in the assists category.
For the season, Banchero is averaging slightly more than this posted number (3.7). While that causes us some concern, we do like that Banchero has stayed under this assists total in 4 of his last 7 games.
Orlando, as a team, is one of the worst teams in the league at racking up assists. The Magic rank 27th in assists per game. We'll roll with the Under and hope that Banchero does most of his damage in the scoring department.
We wanted to make it 3 straight Unders, but why not throw in a pick on Joker for some added enjoyment? The Denver big man has taken a commanding lead of late in the NBA MVP race, so we don't mind backing him to make just one three-pointer tonight.
Jokic is one of those rare talents that seems to do everything on the court exceptionally well. He's even been shooting the ball well from downtown of late, as he's shooting 42.9% from 3-point land over his last 5 games. That should serve Jokic well against Orlando, who only ranks 23rd in defensive efficiency.
For the season, Jokic has hit at least 1 three-pointer in 28 of 47 games. He's also gone over this total in 7 of his last 12 outings. We'll ride with the Over!
