The NBA Season is here! We’ve got some exciting matchups early on in the season, so let’s look at some of the best player props in tonight’s schedule.
Friday’s Best NBA Player Props
(Odds via DraftKings)
Nikola Jokic Under 50.5 Points/Rebounds/Assists (-115)
It was another day and another triple-double by Nikola Jokic. Tonight, he goes against Memphis, who was one of the best defensive teams last year, allowing the lowest field goal percentage. The 50 pts + reb + ast is set very high for this matchup, and it’s four higher than his best mark against the Grizzles last year.
Victor Wembanyama Over 6.5 Rebounds (+110)
Not a bad debut for Victor Wembanyama, as he grabbed 15 points and five rebounds in 23 minutes. Fans are hoping he could see some more floor time, but tonight should be a better performance regardless. The Spurs will host the Rockets, who look like they won’t be competitive again this season. Houston was 26th in rebounds allowed per game last year and allowed 56 in their first matchup. Even if Wemby doesn’t see much floor time, he could get over this prop.
Jayson Tatum Over 26.5 Points (-110)
We get the Eastern Conference Finals rematch early in the season, with the Heats visiting the Celtics. Last year was an exciting series, with Boston nearly erasing a 0-3 deficit and taking it all the way to Game 7. Tatum was one of the highlights of that series, shooting nearly 47% from the floor and four games with over 30 points. In The Garden, Tatum will look to lead this team and will end with a great stat line.
