Happy Monday! We hope that you all enjoyed the Super Bowl yesterday and the NFL season. Let’s turn our attention to basketball, especially considering that there are 11 games on tonight’s NBA slate. With just four days until the All-Star break, we’re excited to dive into our favorite player props on PrizePicks.
Donovan Mitchell has been a key contributor for the Cavaliers this season. This was a fantastic acquisition for the team, as the Cavs now find themselves in fourth place in the Eastern Conference. Tonight, Mitchell and the Cavs will face off against the Spurs, who are on a 12-game losing streak. Mitchell is coming off two monster games, including his 29 point, 10 rebound and six assist game on Saturday. We’re expecting Mitchell to continue his dominance tonight against the lowly Spurs, which is why we recommend taking the over on his points, rebounds and assists total.
In his three games with the Mavericks, Kyrie Irving is averaging 37.6 PRA per game. His impact on this Dallas team cannot be understated, as he and Luka Doncic have proved to be a fantastic one-two punch. Tonight, the Mavericks take on the Minnesota Timberwolves, a team that he has dominated as of late. In his last three matchups with the Timberwolves, Irving has 27 or more points in each of those games, including a 50-point performance in 2019. We are expecting this to be a high-scoring affair, and as a result, are expecting a big night out of Irving.
Joel Embiid has continued his dominant ways in 2023. He continues to be a force to be reckoned with, not only within the 76ers organization but the NBA as a whole. Embiid is the league leader in points per game, 11th in rebounds per game, and 24th in field goal percentage. Embiid has 11 or more rebounds in six of his past eight games and will look to continue that streak tonight against the Rockets, who are on a five-game losing streak. We recommend taking the over in this game, as we’re anticipating a poor shooting percentage from the Rockets.
Josh Giddey has been a key contributor for the Thunder all season. After he was picked sixth overall in the 2021 NBA Draft, he has averaged 16.3 points per game on the season and is a fantastic role player. While he has averaged 16.3 points per game on the season as a whole, he has averaged 18.2 PPG during the month of February. This, coupled with the fact that the Thunder will be taking on the Pelicans tonight, is the perfect storm for Giddey to hit the over on his point total.
