We bounced back nicely with a 2-1 performance last night to cash our Flex Play. Our friends on the Phoenix Suns were good to us, as both Chris Paul and Deandre Ayton easily cashed our Over tickets on their assists and rebounds, respectively.
The only thing keeping us from the perfect 3-0 sweep was D'Angelo Russell, who only needed one more rebound. Oh well, in player props, you live by the hook, and you die by the hook!
Wednesday's NBA card is loaded with 9 games. The 76ers will face the Celtics in a battle of the Eastern Conference's two best teams. That one could be considered must-see TV and will be carried by ESPN at 7:30 Eastern Time.
Let's keep cruising with 3 PrizePicks NBA Props for Wednesday, February 8. Best of luck with all of your selections!
Melo is super talented, and we love watching him play the game. Nevertheless, we're fading him tonight against Washington. For the season, Ball is only averaging 23.3 points per game.
The former Rookie of the Year has also averaged slightly fewer points per game on the road, with a 22.3 mark this season. He's stayed under this point total in 19 of 28 games, which makes us love the Under even more.
The matchup won't be a cakewalk tonight for Ball. The Wizards have a stifling defense, as evidenced by by their #5 ranking in defensive efficiency. Ball will probably still get into the 20s with his point total, but we don't see him scoring 26 or more. Take the Under!
Every so often, you find a prop that shows a major discrepancy between PrizePicks and the online sportsbooks. This is one of those plays! Caesars has this Over juiced at a whopping -169 number.
Market support isn't the only reason we like this play. Duren is averaging 8.7 rebounds per game this season. The young rookie from Memphis has also gone over this total in 7 of his last 11 games.
Duren has an ideal frame for rebounding at 6-11 and 250 pounds. We think he'll easily get reach double digits in rebounds against Cleveland. The Cavs rank just 22nd in rebounds per game, so the overall matchup for Duren should be quite favorable.
Okay, we'll admit that this one scares us a bit. There are quite a few trends that actually support an Over from Embiid here. However, we're going to trust our projection numbers and the market and ride with the Under.
Embiid has racked up a fair amount of assists in his career against Boston. Even still, most online sportsbooks are juicing the heck out of the Under. For example, Unibet has the Under at -167, which is pretty substantial.
The Celtics have one of the top overall defenses in the NBA. Boston ranks 2nd in assists allowed per game. Embiid has stayed under this assists total in 5 of his last 8 games. The Under makes a lot of sense, especially in a game where Embiid is more likely to be focused on scoring.
