Our NBA props were good to us last night, as we came up with a 3-0 sweep! Joe Harris didn't make a single 3-point shot, which easily cashed our Under play on him. The young man continues to struggle from downtown, as he's gone under 2.5 three-pointers in 29 of 36 games this season.

Our plays on Tobias Harris Over 5.5 Rebounds and Josh Hart Over 3.5 Assists both got in the winner's circle by the hook. It's always nice when the hook works for you instead of against you.

Let's stay hot with 3 PrizePicks NBA Props for Wednesday, January 18. Best of luck with all your action.

Jalen Brunson OVER 25.5 Points

Brunson has been on an absolute tear of late! He was named Player of the Week last week, and for good reason. He's averaging 33 points per game over his last 5 games, and we think he keeps his hot shooting going against the Wizards.

Washington is only an average defensive team, as they rank 16th in points per game allowed. The former Villanova Wildcat has gone over this point total in 7 straight games and shouldn't have any trouble finding enough open looks tonight. Brunson scored 34 against the Wizards just 5 days ago, so he should have some good vibes from that performance.

The market agrees with our logic wholeheartedly. PointsBet prices this prop 2 points higher, and FanDuel prices it 1 point higher. PrizePicks is being way too generous, so we'll take advantage with the Over.

LaMelo Ball UNDER 6.5 Rebounds

This number doesn't make sense. Our projections tell us that it should be set at 5.5, which would be closer to Ball's yearly average of 5.4 rebounds per game. Ball hasn't been a major factor on the glass of late, as he's averaging 4.4 rebounds per game over his last 5 outings.

For the season, Ball has stayed under this rebounding total in 13 of 21 games. He's also only pulling down 5.8 boards per game on the road this season. Both of those trends point mightily toward an Under.

Houston is a terrible basketball team, but one thing they do well is rebounding the ball. The Rockets rank 6th in the league in rebounds allowed per game. Ball shouldn't be able to grab more than 6 rebounds in this matchup, so let's ride with the Under.

Josh Giddey OVER 6.5 Assists

Giddey has been quite the facilitator of late, and we think he'll do a lot of that against Indiana tonight. The Pacers are just 17th in the league in assists allowed per game. That should mean lots of open passing lanes for Giddey and this Thunder offense.

Over his last 5 games, Giddey is averaging 7.6 assists per game. He's also gone over this number of assists in 3 of his last 4 games. We like both of those recent trends.

Market support is also in our favor. Most of the online sportsbooks in the industry (FanDuel, PointsBet, and Unibet) price this at 7.5 instead of 6.5. We'll take their lead and play the Over.
