3 NBA Player Prop Bets to Target on Tuesday 11/19/19
Player props can be useful in a variety of ways, from taking advantage of them straight up (to the tune of cold hard cash), to measuring a player's potential to produce in daily fantasy basketball.
While you can use those odds in fantasy, you can also utilize our fantasy projections and a variety of other tools to help make money on betting everyday player props.
For the purposes of this article, we are using the odds provided at FanDuel Sportsbook to pinpoint three spots where value can be had on a player's stat line, scoring, or even shot type.
Please note that betting lines and our game projections may change throughout the day after this article is published.
LeBron James, Over 35.5 Points + Assists
LeBron James has five straight double-doubles in points and assists, averaging 23.4 points and 12.2 assists in that span. The King has been getting his teammates involved and now leads the league in assists with 11.2 per game. In November (9 games), he's averaging 11.9 assists per game and has hit double-digit assists in eight of his last nine. In those same games, he's averaged 25.8 points as his team has won eight of the last nine.
Our model projects LeBron's stat line versus the Thunder to be 25.6 points and 7.2 assists. That has him hitting the under, but I like LeBron's chances at another double-double tonight against a tired Thunder squad.
Hassan Whiteside, Over 14.5 Points
Hassan Whiteside has scored 14 or more points in seven of 13 games for the Portland Trail Blazers, and they are on a back-to-back against the New Orleans Pelicans after the beatdown they received from the Clippers.
Whiteside has a strong chance to double-double tonight and a good shot at his fourth 20-point game of the season. The Blazers have lost all three back-to-backs this year, and Whiteside will need to be productive against one of the worst teams in the NBA if they want to avoid another loss. The big man is averaging 12.1 shot attempts over his last eight. Whiteside is averaging 10.0 points over his past three games in 29.3 minutes per night in that time.
Whiteside is projected to score 14.5 points and grab 13.3 rebounds tonight, hitting the over on both his points and rebounds (12.5) props. I'll back Whiteside against the Pelicans' weak interior defense.
Draymond Green, Under 11.5 Points
Draymond Green hasn't scored 12 or more points since October 28th and is averaging 7.6 points over his last five games to go along with 6.6 rebounds and 4.8 assists. Green has been shooting a woeful 32.5 percent from the field on eight shot attempts per game.
The Warriors are on the road to face the Memphis Grizzlies in a battle of the basement in the Western Conference. Expect other Golden State Warriors like Eric Paschall, Alec Burks, Jordan Poole, and Glenn Robinson III to get more shots than Green tonight.
Our model predicts Green at 9.4 points against the Grizzlies, hitting the under here, while six Warriors are projected to outscore him.
