Prop Pick

The New Orleans Pelicans are just a win away from securing a spot in the postseason. They’re in good form with seven wins in their last ten games. However, they did lose their most recent game – the Sacramento Kings beat them 121-103 last night.

New Orleans’ best player Brandon Ingram scored just 22 points that evening, his worst performance in 10 games. He just needs to do better tonight even though his team’s taking on one of the NBA’s toughest defenses, the Memphis Grizzlies.

NBA Player PropOdds
Brandon Ingram to score at least 29 points-117

Kings vs. Mavericks

  • When: Wednesday, April 5, 2023, at 8:30 p.m ET
  • Where: American Airlines Center, Dallas, Texas

Prop Pick

Despite losing seven of their last eight games, the Dallas Mavericks still have a chance to get to the postseason. For that, they need to get back to the winning track, and for that to happen, their best player, Luka Doncic, needs to put on a show this evening.

The 24-year-old Slovenian is coming off a mediocre performance against the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday, scoring just 22 points. We say “just” because his season average is 32.8 PPG.

NBA Player PropOdds
Luka Doncic to score at least 33 points-114

Lakers vs. Clippers

  • When: Wednesday, April 5, 2023, at 10 p.m ET
  • Where: Crypto.com Arena, Los Angeles, California
  • Channel: ESPN

Prop Pick

Last night, the Lakers beat the Utah Jazz 135-133 after overtime, thus securing a spot in the postseason. LeBron James was brilliant in that game, scoring 37 points. Tonight, they’re playing against their local rivals, and he might take a breather this time.

James spent 38:28 minutes on the court last night, and with under 24 hours to rest, he might not be at the top of his game against the Clippers. Sure, he’ll probably score a decent number of points, but probably not as many as the last time.

NBA Player PropOdds
LeBron James to score under 27.5 points-114
