NBA Player Prop Picks for March 27

Tonight’s schedule is loaded with 12 games and features all four of the top Western Conference teams in action. With less than 25 days before the NBA playoffs begin, every game takes on a make-or-break feel as teams jockey for seeding.

Which player prop wagers should bettors pay close attention to tonight? This author’s picks for Tuesday’s NBA games were red-hot and hit on three of the four player props selected. Let’s dig a little deeper today on these four best NBA player props for Wednesday, March 27.

Charlotte Hornets Brandon Miller: Over 19.5 Points

Although the Hornets have already been eliminated from the playoffs, Charlotte has plenty to play for Wednesday against the Cleveland Cavaliers. These two teams faced off Monday for the first time, producing a one-sided 115-92 Cleveland victory.

In the first matchup, rookie sensation Brandon Miller exploded for 24 points for Charlotte. In tonight’s rematch, bettors expect Miller to cover his scoring prop bet easily, especially as the Hornets’ forward is scoring almost one point higher on the year at home versus road contests.

LA Clippers James Harden: Over 8.5 Assists

Los Angeles has multiple players that can move the ball and find open shooters. But none are better than James Harden, who at 8.5 assists this season is fifth in the league. While Harden remains a scoring threat averaging 17.1 points each night, the 15-year veteran has recorded double-figure assist averages over the past five years to prove why he’s still a valuable player.

In his last eight games, Harden has nine or more assists in all but two games, including 14 assists Sunday against Philadelphia. In tonight’s rematch, expect Harden to continue finding open players to rack up another game with double-figure assists against the 76ers on Wednesday.

OKC Thunder Chet Holmgreen: Over 27.5 Pts + Reb + Ast

In his debut season, Oklahoma City rookie Chet Holmgren is making a strong case for rookie of the year. The top pick in the 2022 NBA draft is averaging 16.9 points, 8.0 rebounds and 2.6 assists per game to help lead the Thunder to a half-game behind Denver for the top spot in the Western Conference.

Oklahoma City’s opponent on Wednesday is the Houston Rockets. The Thunder won back-to-back games against Houston in February, thanks to Holmgren averaing 23.5 points, 10.5 rebounds and 4.5 assists during those two games. Expect more of the same tonight as Holmgren should easily cover his player combo prop bet.

Denver Nuggets Michael Porter Jr: Over 6.5 Rebounds

The last game on the NBA slate Wednesday features the Denver Nuggets hosting the Phoenix Suns. While much of the focus on this game will surround Denver’s Nikola Jokic and Phoenix’s Kevin Durant, an unsung Nuggets starter is getting the nod for a rebounding player prop.

Entering his fifth season, Michael Porter Jr. has started every game for Denver since 2020. The Nuggets small forward is averaging 16.9 points, 7.0 rebounds and 1.5 assists this season – figures that haven’t been posted by Porter the past two seasons.

In two earlier matchups against the Suns, Porter finished with at least seven rebounds in both contests. In his last eight games, Porter has hit or eclipsed seven rebounds in all but two contests, giving bettors confidence Porter will surpass the 6.5-rebound mark needed to cover this player prop bet.
