By · Updated 1 month ago
  • We’ve got two interesting NBA player props for you for Tuesday, April 16, 2024.
  • We expect LeBron James to shine in tonight’s Lakers vs. Pelicans game.
  • Our prediction is that Steph Curry will score at least four three-pointers tonight.

After a one-day break, the NBA is back. Two games of the 2024 NBA Play-In Tournament are on the program today, namely, the Los Angeles Lakers vs. New Orleans Pelicans and Golden State Warriors vs. Sacramento Kings.

Both of these games look ideal for NBA player props, which is something we’re going to focus on in this post. We’ll analyze both of these games, sharing our top picks for player-focused bets along the way.

Lakers vs. Pelicans

How to Watch

  • When: Tuesday, April 16, 2024, at 7:30 p.m. ET
  • Where: Smoothie King Center, New Orleans, Louisiana
  • Channel: TNT

Prop Pick

The Pelicans have been abysmal at home lately, losing each of their last five games played in New Orleans. When it comes to the Lakers’ form on the road, it’s been sensational – these guys have won every single one of their last five away games.

This includes the game against the Pelicans in New Orleans in their final outing of the regular season. Anthony Davis was the most prolific scorer in that game, but it’s LeBron James who was the man of the match. He scored 28 points, while also making 11 rebounds and 17 assists.

Can he do something similar tonight? We think he can, which is why our Lakers vs. Pelicans prop pick is LeBron James triple-double.

Warriors vs. Kings

How to Watch

  • When: Tuesday, April 16, 2024, at 10:00 p.m. ET
  • Where: Golden 1 Center, Sacramento, California
  • Channel: TNT

Prop Pick

The Sacramento Kings won their last two games against the Golden State Warriors, both of which saw Steph Curry miss a lot of points from the three-point line. Luckily for him, he did make a lot of attempts from distance in both of those games, which is why he scored 4 and 6 three-pointers.

He needs to do at least as equally well in tonight’s game if he wants to help his team get to the 2024 Playoffs. Given that Sacramento is a team that allows 39.3 points from the three-point line (12th worst in the league), we think he’s going to score at least 4 three-pointers tonight.
