The NBA is back after the All-Star break! There are 12 games on the program on Thursday, February 22, 2024, some of which look really good for NBA player prop. In this post, we’re going to present you with three props we think are going to win.

Celtics vs. Bulls

How to Watch

Prop Pick

In a recent interview, Boston’s Jayson Tatum boldly claimed he’s the best player in the NBA right now. Is he overconfident or is there truth in this?

Well, he is the 9th highest-scoring player in the league this season with a PPG of 27.1. He also has a very good chance of breaking into the top 5 if he continues scoring high. So, will he score a lot this evening?

We think he will. We can definitely see him go over 26.5 in tonight’s Celtics vs. Bulls game.

Jayson Tatum Over 26.5 Points

Wizards vs. Nuggets

How to Watch

  • When: Thursday, February 22, 2024, at 9:00 p.m. ET
  • Where: Ball Arena, Denver, Colorado  
  • Channel: NBA League Pass

Prop Pick

Nikola Jokic hasn’t scored more than 30 points in almost one full month. Furthermore, in his last two games, he scored under 20. That needs to change ASAP!

We think he’s going to go 30+ this evening for several reasons. First of all, he’s had time to rest and prepare for the Wizards vs. Nuggets game.

Secondly, the game is played in Denver where the Nuggets have been fantastic – they’re the team with the most home wins in the Western Conference.

Then, there’s the thing about the Washington Wizards. These guys are in horrible form, with eight straight losses. On top of everything, they’re the league’s worst defense (along with the Atlanta Hawks), conceding 123.9 points per game.

Nikola Jokic 30+ Points

Lakers vs. Warriors

How to Watch

  • When: Thursday, February 15, 2024, at 10:00 p.m. ET
  • Where: Chase Center, San Francisco, California          
  • Channel: TNT

Prop Pick

During the 2024 NBA All-Star Weekend, Golden State’s Steph Curry once again showed how good he is when it comes to scoring 3-pointers. He competed in a 3-point contest with the WNBA star Sabrina Ionescu, the winner of last year’s contest. The Warriors superstar won 29-26.

He did great from the 3-point line in the All-Star contest, but in his most recent game in the league, he scored just two against the Utah Jazz. It was a bitter disappointment, especially knowing that in the game before that, Curry scored nine 3-pointers.

What’s he going to do now? We think he’ll score a lot. Six 3-point field goals is our pick.
