  • Jaxson Hayes vs. Trayce Jackson-Davis – who will score more?

After a one-day break, the NBA is coming back with 14 games on Tuesday, April 9, 2024. Some of those are crucial for the playoff destiny of the teams involved, which is why it’s only logical to assume every player will give their maximum on the court this evening. That said, today is a fantastic day for NBA player props as you’ll learn if you keep on reading.

Pelicans vs. Trail Blazers

How to Watch

  • When: Tuesday, April 9, 2024, at 10:00 p.m. ET
  • Where: Moda Center at the Rose Quarter, Portland, Oregon

Prop Pick

The New Orleans Pelicans are close to booking a spot in the postseason, for which they only need a few more wins. The Portland Trail Blazers, on the other hand, have no chance to get to the playoffs.

That said, the motivation is on the side of the visiting team, and we expect all of their players to be fired up this evening. This includes C.J. McCollum who was the Pelicans’ hero in the 113-105 win over the Phoenix Suns over the weekend.

This guy’s been in a point-scoring mood lately, going over 30 in each of his last three games. This is why it’s kind of surprising that the bookies have set Collum’s margin to just 23.5 points. We’re sure he’s gonna go “over” tonight.

NBA Player PropOdds
C.J. McCollum Over 23.5 Points-108

Warriors vs. Lakers

How to Watch

  • When: Tuesday, April 9, 2024, at 10:00 p.m. ET
  • Where: Crypto.com Arena, Los Angeles, California
  • Channel: TNT

Prop Pick

Both teams have been great offensively lately, the result of which is that each team is 3-1 since the start of April. What’s also interesting is that each team has been playing great as a collective, with some backups putting on great performances lately.

Jaxson Hayes of the Lakers, for example, scored 19 points in his last outing. Over in Golden State, Trayce Jackson-Davis scored 16 points over the weekend. We suspect both of these guys will score a lot tonight, but who will score more?

We think it’s going to be Hayes, the main reason being that he might get more minutes on the court if LeBron James does not return. As things currently stand, he’s doubtful for tonight’s game as he’s struggling with an unspecified illness.

Jaxson Hayes vs. Trayce Jackson-Davis: More Points: Jaxson Hayes-110
