NBA Player Prop Bets to Target on Thursday 3/10/22

Player props are a fun way to bet the NBA without having to worry about the zaniness that last-minute injuries can cause in terms of a spread or a game total.

Here, we'll focus on utilizing our projections and a slew of other tools and simulations to help make some cash.

For this article, we are using the odds provided at NBA Finals odds to pinpoint spots where value can be had tonight.

The prop-betting experience on FanDuel Sportsbook is getting even more fun. You can track your player props with real-time updates and place in-game props with ease.

Seth Curry Under 11.5 Points (-116)

Seth Curry is taking on his old squad, the Philadelphia 76ers, tonight in Philly.

This is a Sixers defense that doesn't give up many threes. Over the last 15 games, the 76ers are allowing a three-point attempt rate of 35.8%, the fifth-lowest. That has me on the under on Curry's points prop.

He's scored nine or fewer points in three straight. Over the last two games, both of which have been on the road and included Kyrie Irving (like this one), Curry sports a lowly 11.6% usage rate.

We project him for 11.2 points.

Kevin Durant Over 6.5 Rebounds (-110)

I'll get this out of the way -- Kevin Durant hasn't snagged seven-plus boards in any of his last five games.

But I like him to do it tonight, and our algorithm does, too, projecting him to pull down 7.5 rebounds.

The matchup has a lot to do with it. Across the last five games, the Sixers rank next to last in rebound rate with a clip of 47.4%.

And prior to the last five games, KD had totaled at least eight rebounds in four of his previous six games.
