Friday night's 12 game NBA slate includes an ESPN doubleheader that tips off with Chicago at Boston at 7:30 PM followed by Milwaukee at Golden State at 10:00 PM. We were a Wendell Carter half-rebound from running the table with our 6 props picks last night, so let's look to match (or better) that performance on Friday.
We have a total of 7 props picks tonight, including a same game parlay for the Warriors vs Pelicans game.
Featured NBA Prop Bonus Offers
Jalen Brunson OVER 16.5 Points
Best available odds: -115 at FanDuel
The Knicks are in the top half of teams in scoring per game and will face a Harden-less 76ers team tonight. Brunson is averaging over 18 points per game and has gone over this total in 4 of his last 6 games. Brunson is a Philly kid and played at Villanova so he will have plenty of fans in the crowd and will want to show out for them. He should get 20 without much resistance.
Desmond Bane UNDER 21.5 Points
Best available odds: -103 at Caesars
Bane has been scoring at an insane rate over his last 4 games as he is averaging 32.5ppg over that span. He did take a game off due to an ankle injury but followed that by dropping 29 in his next start. Tonight he faces a bad Hornets team that may let the game get away quickly. With Bane still nursing the ankle a bit, we wouldn’t be surprised if his time and scoring is a bit limited in this contest.
Lauri Markkanen OVER 8.5 Rebounds
Best available odds: +108 at Caesars
Markkanen is averaging 9 boards per game and has gone over 8 boards in 4 straight games prior to his game against New Orleans last night. Tonight, he gets the Lakers, who are allowing the most rebounds to opposing teams in the league. 51.43 is the average amount of rebounds opponents are getting on these Lakers. Markkanen should get double-digits, that said, playing him to get a double-double wouldn’t be a bad play either at +185.
Jrue Holiday OVER 7.5 Assists
Best available odds: -105 at DratKings
Holiday is dishing out over 7.5 assists per game on the season. His Bucks face the Timberwolves tonight who allow the most assists to opposing teams in the league. Opponents have averaged almost 30 assists per game against this Minnesota team that does not play the best rotation defense. Jrue should be able to expose them with top-scoring option Giannis at his disposal.
NBA Same Game Parlay for Friday
We are targeting three Pelicans in our same game parlay tonight. The Warriors are allowing a league-high 122.2 points per game, while New Orleans averages the 2nd most points per game on the season. Bet the over!
Zion 1+ Steal & Brandon Ingram 15+ Points & CJ McCollum 15+ Points
Best available odds: +110 at DratKings
Zion is averaging almost 1.5 steals per game on the season and is coming off his 1st non-steal game in 5 games. He should get one here against a Warriors team that can speed things up to their own detriment at times. Both Ingram and CJ are averaging 20+ points per game, if the Pelicans are going to keep this close, they will both need 15 or more in this one.
