    Wednesday’s Best NBA Player Prop Bets

    (Odds courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook)

    LeBron James Over 25.5 Points (-125)

    The Los Angeles Lakers played without LeBron James (ankle) on Tuesday night in Milwaukee, and the offense was rather moribund for most of the game. However, down 19 points midway through the fourth quarter, Anthony Davis and Austin Reaves saved the night, and the Lakers won an epic 128-124 game in double overtime against the stunned Bucks.

    While “AD” and the rest of the offense could be a little winded in Memphis, LeBron should have plenty of energy after resting the ankle, which has given him trouble for the better part of the past couple of months. Expect LeBron to have fresh legs, picking up his teammates and doing the lion’s share of the scoring for the visitors in the second end of a tough back-to-back in the Central Time Zone.

    Dejounte Murray Over 35.5 Points + Assists (-122)

    The Atlanta Hawks play host to the Portland Trail Blazers in a rematch of a game two weeks ago in Rip City. While the Blazers came away with the 106-102 win on their home floor, Dejounte Murray had a scintillating performance for the visitors. Murray dropped a game-high 40 points on 15-of-29 shooting, as he was just feeling it. He also knocked down six 3-pointers, four rebounds, three assists and two steals, with a blocked shot added for good measure.

    The Blazers’ defense hasn’t exactly been stout this season, allowing teams to score 115.8 points per game (PPG) while teams are hitting a robust 49.1% from the floor against them. The latter is good for 25th in the NBA. Murray has been on an extended tear since that giant showing in Portland, averaging 26.1 PPG, 9.6 APG and 5.4 RPG across the past seven outings, including five consecutive double-doubles and a near triple-double in Phoenix last Thursday, missing by just one board. Strike while the iron is hot.

    Jamal Murray Over 3.5 Rebounds (-150)

    You’ll have to pay up for this one, costing you 1.5 times your potential return, but it’s worth it. Also, know that “The Blue Arrow” is officially listed as questionable due to an ankle injury, although he is fully expected to suit up. However, before finalizing your wagers, make sure to double-check 90 minutes prior to tip-off to verify he is active.

    Jamal Murray is averaging 5.3 rebounds per game in 10 games in March, including four or more boards in four consecutive outings. The last time he faced the Suns on March 5 in Denver, he posted 28 points, nine assists and seven rebounds in 42 minutes of a 117-107 overtime setback. He is averaging 4.1 RPG on the season, so he simply needs to hit his averages to get the job done.
