2023-24 NBA Player Props, Breakdown, Odds, and Picks (Feb 24)

By · Updated 2 months ago
  • We’ve got three NBA player props for you for Saturday, February 23!
  • Our prediction is that Jayson Tatum will go over 26.5 points this evening.
  • Our NBA player props are Paolo Banchero and Mikal Bridges “under” in their respective games.

Yesterday wasn’t a great day for NBA player props, but we’re confident we can rebound from losses today. There are three games on the program this Saturday, but that’s more than enough if you ask us. We’re now going to show you what we believe are the top NBA props for February 24.

Magic vs. Pistons

How to Watch

  • When: Saturday, February 24, 2024, at 8:00 p.m. ET
  • Where: Little Caesars Arena, Detroit, Michigan             
  • Channel: NBA League Pass

Prop Pick

It’s really high time for Detroit to start playing better. The Pistons lost their last four games, and if they want to end their losing streak, they need to improve their defense. They’re just conceding way too many points – they’re the NBA’s fourth-worst defense at the moment.

If they’re going to do better defensively, they need to find a way to stop Orlando’s points leader Paolo Banchero. This guy’s averaging 22.8 points per game this season, but in his last game, he scored only 12. Is this a sign the Pistons will be able to deal with him?

We think it might be, and what we’re sure of is that Banchero under 22.5 points is a very good NBA player prop.

NBA Player PropOdds
Paolo Banchero Under 22.5 Points-114

Celtics vs. Knicks

How to Watch

  • When: Saturday, February 24, 2024, at 8:30 p.m. ET
  • Where: Madison Square Garden, New York City, New York      
  • Channel: ABC

Prop Pick

You can’t claim to be the NBA’s best player and then go and score just 25 points against the Chicago Bulls. That’s exactly what happened with Jayson Tatum, who’s the points leader of the Boston Celtics with a PPG of 27.1.

You may not think that 25 points is too bad, but we know this guy can do better. He’s a point-scoring machine and we’re certain he’s going to show it tonight. We can definitely see him score 26 or more tonight against the New York Knicks.

NBA Player PropOdds
Jayson Tatum Over 26.5 Points-107

Nets vs. Timberwolves

How to Watch

  • When: Saturday, February 24, 2024, at 9:00 p.m. ET
  • Where: Target Center, Minneapolis, Minnesota             
  • Channel: Fubo

Prop Pick

The Minnesota Timberwolves weren’t able to stop Giannis last night, which is why they lost to the Milwaukee Bucks 112-107. Now, they’re playing against the Brooklyn Nets, and if they want to win, they need to stop Mikal Bridges.

Brooklyn’s small forward is scoring 21.7 points per game on average and his points margin in this game is set to 21.5. Will he go over or under that number in the Nets vs. Timberwolves game?

Our pick is “under” because he’s not been playing great lately. In fact, he scored fewer than 22 points in three of his last four games.

NBA Player PropOdds
Mikal Bridges Under 21.5 Points-108
