Kawhi Leonard, Luka Doncic Among Best Prop Bets (February 2)
The hardwood action continues with some intriguing matchups on Thursday night. There are plenty of player accessories up for grabs and here are some NBA player accessories I love for Thursday night!
NBA player Mason Plumlee’s props and pick, over 10.5 rebounds (-125) Spread Bulls -6.5 times | Television 8:10 p.m. ET | NBA League Pass Best Line DraftKings
The Charlotte Hornets will travel to Chicago to face the Bulls. The Bulls have struggled to bounce basketball this season and rank 17th in opposing rebounds allowed per game.
However, in the last 10 games, the Bulls ranked 24th. The Bulls also allow opposing centers to grab 16.2 rebounds per game, which ranks fifth worst in the entire league. This will be the third game this season between the Hornets and the Bulls. In the two previous meetings, Plumlee grabbed 12 and 13 rebounds respectively.
There’s no question that Plumlee is the Hornets’ best rebounder. In fact, the Hornets’ second-best rebounder is LaMelo Ball, who averages 5.7 rebounds per game. Due to the Bulls’ lack of size inside, I expect Plumlees’ rebounding success to continue. Get the upper hand in this game.
Kawhi Leonard, more than 1.5 flights (+120) spread the dollars -4.5 times | Television 10 p.m. ET | TNT Best Line DraftKings
The game of the evening will be the Clippers visiting the Bucks. I’m looking for Leonard to have a good defensive effort against Milwaukee. When healthy, Leonard is one of the best two-way superstars in the league.
This season, Leonard is averaging 1.3 steals per game, but this is an opportunity for him to put in more defensive stats. The Bucks commit the fifth-most turnovers per game (15.3). One stat that stands out is the number of steals Leonard has against the Bucks. In fact, he has at least two or more interceptions against the Bucks in seven straight games!
I expect Leonard to be able to take the ball out of Giannis Antetokounmpo’s hands as he tries to get down and reach the basket. I expect Leonard’s streak to continue, so take the positive odds.
Luka Doncic, Rebs + Asts (-120) Spread Mavericks -5 Time | Television 8:30 p.m. ET | NBA League Pass Best Line DraftKings
The Dallas Mavericks will host the New Orleans Pelicans in town for a division game and I’ll back Doncic to fill out the stat sheet. Doncic has been a tear this season and is playing at MVP level. So far, Doncic is averaging 33.4 points, 8.9 rebounds and 8.3 assists per game.
However, Doncic has also had plenty of recent success against the Pelicans. In his last four games against New Orleans, Doncic is averaging 11.5 rebounds and eight assists per game. In fact, Doncic has exceeded that projection in four of his last five games against the Pelicans, including both matchups this season.
I expect the Pelicans to throw different defenders at Doncic in an attempt to knock him off his rhythm. However, I don’t expect that to work out as I think Doncic is going to turn in another big night.
