The NBA schedule for Thursday, January 25 includes multiple Eastern vs Western Conference games, and two nationally televised games casual fans of the sport will want to watch. What players can bettors follow in tonight’s action to capitalize on some excellent player prop bets?
We’ll reveal our top four player prop bets for the NBA’s Thursday, January 25 schedule. Best of luck, folks!
The NBA’s leading scorer – Philly C Joel Embiid – has wrecked the league in his last five games. Including Monday’s 70-point finish against San Antonio, Embiid has poured in 44.2 points per outing to help the 76ers win their past five games and 16 of their last 19 outings.
Against Indiana on Thursday night, expect Embiid to continue this torrid tear. The 76ers have met the Pacers twice this season, both times resulting in losses for Philadelphia.
In both games, however, Embiid has scored at least 37 points, giving bettors confidence they’ll succeed in this player prop bet.
After a hot start to the 2023-2024 NBA season, the Timberwolves have been pedestrian as of late. In January, Minnesota has won only seven of their 13 contests to maintain a tie atop the Western Conference with the Oklahoma City Thunder.
The T’wolves will attempt to win back-to-back games Thursday when they face the Brooklyn Nets. Minnesota’s top scorer – Anthony Edwards – has been an enigma during January, posting three games under double-digit scoring while owning three games with 35 or more points.
In this matchup, expect Edwards to make at least three three-point attempts Thursday night. While Edwards has met or exceeded that total only six times in January, five of those six contests came in road games. And Brooklyn is allowing nearly 40% from behind the arc in their past three outings, giving bettors confidence in this player prop bet.
It’s crazy that at the halfway mark this season, the NBA schedule has featured just one contest between the Miami Heat and the Boston Celtics. That’s particularly true after these two teams have met in back-to-back years in the Eastern Conference finals.
While Miami has been only averaging this season, the Heat’s Bam Adebayo has been anything but. Adebayo is averaging 21.4 points, 10.6 rebounds and 4.4 assists per game to rank in the league’s top 60 in all three categories.
In the two teams’ previous matchup, Adebayo notched 27 points, seven rebounds and two assists in the Heat loss. Expect Adebayo to combine those three statistics again for 36 or more total stats, especially after hitting this player prop in three straight games and in all but two January contests.
On Monday, Sacramento snapped a four-game losing streak by defeating the Atlanta Hawks. To continue their winning ways, the Kings will need to defeat the Golden State Warriors in the two NBA franchises’ last battle of the regular season.
Sacramento needs Domantas Sabonis to have a big game in order to do that. The 6-10 forward has been a force rebounding this year, averaging over 12 rebounds per outing. In 25 straight contests, Sabonis has recorded at least 10 or more rebounds to solidify his spot atop the NBA in this category.
In the teams’ last matchup – a Nov. 28 win by the Kings – Sabonis secured 18 rebounds to help his team earn their first victory over the Warriors this season. Expect Sabonis to record at least 14 rebounds Thursday against Golden State to successfully cover this player prop bet.
