The struggling Spurs take on the Bucks as the reigning champions and Jamal Murray look to win their 8th game in the last 9 tries against Steph Curry and the Warriors, who are coming off a massive win against Orlando.
Get our best NBA player prop picks for Thursday, January 4 right here. Good luck!
Point Sochan hasn’t worked out the way Pop expected in Jeremy Sochan’s 2nd NBA season. While he’s averaging a commendable 9.5 R+A per game this season, the point forward has hit this under in each of the last three games while playing in less than 30 minutes in each outing.
With Wembanyama gaining more on-ball responsibility and “my-guy” Blake Wesley getting 21 minutes of action in the Spurs’ last game, look for Sochan to struggle to reach this mark.
It’s simple. Jamal Murray shows up in big games. With the Nuggets traveling to the Bay Area looking to close the gap between the Wolves and Thunder atop the West, Jamal should easily reach this mark.
The bad news for Golden State but good news for us? The streaky Warriors have allowed 120 PPG over their last three and Jamal Murray, the 4th quarter assassin, is averaging nearly 50% from beyond the arc when the Nuggets are coming off 2+ days of rest. Bet on the NBA Champ to make his impact in a nationally televised statement game.
In his first game since injury, Gordon played just 25 minutes in a much-expected Denver blowout win. With slight emergences of Peyton Watson and Christain Braun during Aaron’s few games absence, there’s reason to believe Coach Malone could opt for a committee approach to this game.
We think Malone will use his extremely deep bench against a Warriors’ team that is still trying to find their identity alongside Chef Curry.
Speaking of the greatest shooter of all time, a primetime game calls for a primetime performance. Curry has averaged 4.5 3PM in two affairs against the reigning champions this season.
He's also coming off of a 36-point clinic against one of the toughest defenses in the league (Orlando), look for Steph to Steph in what could propel a large winning streak for Golden State.
While Jackson-Davis has been a nice surprise for Steve Kerr and the Warriors, you don’t fool the Joker multiple times. The rookie hit the under in both games against the Nuggets this season.
Jackson-Davis is facing up against Nikola on primetime, so expect a rough outing as this matchup could get ugly early with the MVP’s ability to stretch the floor and get physical down low. Foul trouble could lead TDJ out of this prop play.
