Best NBA Prop Bets: March 1, 2021by Garrett Brooks March 1, 2021 0 comments
We have a seven-game NBA slate to kick off the month of March. With the all-star break looming, there’s only a few more nights to stack money before a short hiatus for the exhibition game. There’s no better way to start the week than with some value prop bet selections.
General Rule: No odds greater than -150. This is to ensure value in tracking the overall record.
Domantas Sabonis Under 22.5 Points (-118)
Sabonis and the Indiana Pacers head to Philadelphia to take on the 76ers in an eastern conference showdown. The Pacers are losers of three straight while the 6ers sit atop the eastern conference as of today. Sabonis is a deserving all-star and it was good to see him get added as an injury replacement, but tonight’s under on his points is the play.
Not only do the 76ers have the bigs to limit his scoring opportunities, but they have also proven capable of doing so in the past. In three games against the 76ers last season, Sabonis averaged just 15.3 points per contest. Doc Rivers and his group are thriving at home yet again this season with a 14-3 record on their homecourt. Sabonis under 22.5 is a value play.
Coby White Over 15.5 Points (-118)
White has been the Bulls only reliable scoring threat behind Zach LaVine for much of the season and that’s going to continue. While LaVine does the heavy lifting, White is relied on to offer bursts that so far have Chicago playing solid basketball.
Over the last ten, he’s scoring 17.3 per game as Thaddeus Young continues playing a significant role in helping the offense get good looks. Jamal Murray isn’t going to shut him down and the Nuggets are going to rightfully have the gameplan centered on slowing LaVine.
Expect White to hit the over and realistically he should hit the 20 point mark in this one. It’ll be a high-scoring game and the Bulls simply need him to keep their offense rolling.
Dejounte Murray Over 7.5 Rebounds (+100)
Murray is one of the best rebounding guards in the league and finds himself in a great matchup against the Brooklyn Nets. With their often small-ball lineups in the absence of Kevin Durant, the Nets are vulnerable to mismatch rebounders on opposing teams.
Murray is exactly that. He is tied with Jakob Poeltl in leading the Spurs in rebounds per game on the season. The guard and the big man each snag 7.2 boards per contest and Murray will be able to exploit the undersized Nets lineups over the course of this game.
