Today’s Best PrizePicks NBA Player Prediction: Nikola Jokic
First of all, PrizePicks is currently offering a deal for tonight’s game. You can only use the promotion once, but they list Nikola Jokic’s over for points at 0.5. So make sure to run over and grab that prior to tipoff.
While that promotion is a lock, we’re also going to include Jokic’s over for points, rebounds and assists. Jokic had three triple-doubles against the Lakers, and in each of those games, he easily cleared this number. Against the Suns, he went over this number five times.
The Heat are a tough team that will surely have a plan for Jokic tonight. But they also only had two days to plan for him. Until someone proves they can stop Jokic, we think his over should be taken every game.
At BettingPros, we’ve compiled several projection sources to come up with consensus projections. We then compared these projections to the prop bet odds from the sportsbooks to give you the best prop bet picks.
What are Player Props?
Player props refer to wagers that bettors can make based on player performance in a specific game. The majority of player props are built around the most common statistical benchmarks for a specific sport such as yards and touchdowns in football. Most player props are straight over/under plays that open at or near -110 and are adjusted based on where the money lands. Examples of basketball player prop bets include over/under bets on points, assists, rebounds, three-pointers made, blocks, or steals.
