  • We’ve got two interesting NBA player props for you for Monday, April 22, 2024.
  • Joel Embiid hurt his knee again, so we doubt he’ll score a lot of points tonight.
  • Nikola Jokic triple-double is one of our top NBA prop bets for tonight.

Three games of the 2024 NBA Playoffs are on the program today, which means that there are plenty of NBA player props to choose from. We were able to pick out two props that we think are very likely to win. We’ll now present them to you, sharing our reasoning as to why we think there’s great value in these bets.

76ers vs. Knicks

How to Watch

  • When: Monday, April 22, 2024, at 7:30 p.m. ET
  • Where: Madison Square Garden, New York City, New York
  • Channel: TNT

Prop Pick

The New York Knicks lead the series 1-0 after beating the Philadelphia 76ers 111-104 in Game 1. Joel Embiid did alright with 29 points scored, even though he had some problems with his knee during the game.

He’s expected to play again, but we’re not sure if he’s going to have as good a game as the first time around. The coach might even decide to rest him as losing Embiid to an injury would be a disaster for the ‘Niners.

We do think he’ll play, but not too much. As a result, he probably won’t score anywhere near as many points as he did in the first game.

Joel Embiid Under 29.5 Points-126

Lakers vs. Nuggets

How to Watch

  • When: Monday, April 22, 2024, at 10:00 p.m. ET
  • Where: Ball Arena, Denver, Colorado
  • Channel: TNT

Prop Pick

The Denver Nuggets won the first game of the series with the Los Angeles Lakers 114-103. It’s no surprise given that the Nuggets are fantastic when playing on home turf. They’re playing at Denver’s Ball Arena in Game 2 as well, so it’s only logical to assume they’re going to do well.

Nikola Jokic was Denver’s best player in the first game, scoring 32 points and making 12 rebounds and seven assists. This time, we think he might go double figures with assists as well, the result of which is that a Nikola Jokic triple-double might happen.
