Thursday’s Best NBA Prop Bets

Odds courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook

Lebron James Over 28.5 Points (-125 DraftKings)

Tom Brady’s retirement has proven that Father Time always wins. There are a couple of players who make us wonder if they will be the ones to last forever. One of those players is Lebron James. He seems to only get better with age.

Since Lebron turned 38 years old, he averages 36 points per game. Tonight he plays against an Indiana team that has struggled since Tyrese Haliburton got hurt. They are 1-4 in their last five games. That means there will be plenty of scoring opportunities for Lebron James.

Jimmy Butler Over 21.5 Points (-110 DraftKings)

Both of these teams are fighting for a spot in the playoffs. The Knicks have been average, but the Heat have improved recently. They went 10-5 in January and 4-1 in their last five games. Bettors should always keep an eye on teams that are trending up.

The best player for the Heat is Jimmy Butler. He is a consistent scorer who makes the most of his opportunities. Butler averages 22.0 points per game but has averaged 26.7 in the last three games. That means Butler is trending upwards, and bettors can benefit from that.

Nikola Jokic Over 11.5 Rebounds (-115 DraftKings)

These two teams have plenty of talent. The Warriors have the splash brothers, and the Nuggets have Nikola Jokic. That will make this one of the most entertaining matchups to watch tonight.

Nikola Jokic is one of the most well-rounded centers in the NBA. He can score, defend, pass, and rebound. Tonight he plays against one of the worst frontcourts in the NBA. That gives Jokic betting value on rebounding. Tonight is a good time to bet on consistency which is what Jokic does best.
