NBA Player Prop Bet Odds, Picks & Predictions: Thursday (1/19)

Check out all of today’s best props with the BettingPros Prop Bet Cheat Sheet

Jaden Ivey Over 14.5 Points (-125 @DraftKings)

Tonight the Pistons and Bulls play in Paris. That fact alone makes this game interesting to watch. Traveling that far can impact players in different ways. Players deal with jet lag, new venues, and spectators are a wild card.

These unknowns impact players in different ways. That means bettors should lower the number of units bet. There is still betting value if you know where to look. Tonight the player to look at is Jaden Ivey. The Pistons are dealing with injuries. That has made Ivey the number one offensive option. Ivey can score, and that makes him the player to watch.

Jayson Tatum Over 3.5 Three Pointers (+100@DraftKings)

This game is a rematch of last year’s finals game. There is plenty of talent in this game, but if that is not enough to watch this game, these teams can shoot. Both teams have players who shoot three-pointers consistently. The Warriors have the splash brothers, while the Celtics have Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum. 

Jayson Tatum averages 31.1 points and nine three-point attempts per game. That makes him one of the highest-volume three-point shooters in the league. Tonight Jaylen Brown is sitting out. That means Tatum will have more opportunities to score. That means Tatum has betting value tonight. 

Joel Embiid Over 30.5 Points (-125 @DraftKings)

Both of these teams have players who can score. That will make tonight one of the best games to watch. The best player to watch is Joel Embiid. He is one of the best offensive centers in the NBA.

He averages 33.6 points per game. Embiid can score inside the paint and from the three-point range. That means Embiid is always a player that can score points. The Trailblazers do not have a center that can defend Embiid. The scoring ability of Embiid, along with the lack of defense, makes this a good game for Embiid to score.
