  • We’ve got two exciting NBA player props for you for Thursday, March 21, 2024.
  • We predict a high-scoring game for Luka Doncic tonight.
  • Will Nikola Jokic find a way to outsmart the Knicks’ defense?

Today’s a great day for NBA fans as there are seven interesting games on the program. One of those is the Utah Jazz vs. Dallas Mavericks game, in which we expect Luka Doncic to do better than he did in his last game, which saw him score just 18 points.

There’s also the New York Knicks vs. Denver Nuggets game, in which we expect Nikola Jokic to shine.

Jazz vs. Mavericks

How to Watch

  • When: Thursday, March 21, 2024, at 8:30 p.m. ET
  • Where: American Airlines Center, Dallas, Mavericks      
  • Channel: NBA League Pass

Prop Pick

The Dallas Mavericks are expected to have an easy game tonight. They’re -1000 favorites to beat the Utah Jazz, the main reason being that they’re way better than this team, especially given that Utah’s best player Lauri Markkanen is struggling with an injury.

This means that tonight’s Jazz vs. Mavericks game is an ideal opportunity for Luka Doncic to get back to his high-scoring ways. He’s the NBA’s top scorer with a PPG of 34.1, but in his last game, he scored just 18 points.

This doesn’t mean that he had a bad game. On the contrary, Doncic recorded a triple-double. He might do it this time as well, but our prop pick is that he’s going to go over 34.5 points.

NBA Player PropOdds
Luka Doncic Over 34.5 Points-110

Knicks vs. Nuggets

How to Watch

  • When: Thursday, March 21, 2024, at 9:00 p.m. ET
  • Where: Ball Arena, Denver, Colorado      
  • Channel: NBA League Pass

Prop Pick

The New York Knicks are the NBA’s second-best defense, conceding just 107.9 points per game. They conceded under 100 points in five of their last six games.

However, if there’s a team that can tear down their defensive wall, it’s Denver, especially given that the game is played at Ball Arena. The man who we expect to be in the spotlight tonight is Nikola Jokic. He is averaging 26.0 points per game, but he’s been in a point-scoring mood lately.
