NBA Bet #1: Anthony Edwards O 4.5 Assists (-140)

Season Stats PPG: 26.6 | FG: 46.6 % | 3 PT: 37 % | FT: 87.6 % | REB: 5.9 | AST: 5.3 | STL: 1.4 | BLK: 0.4

Tonight, the Minnesota Timberwolves (12-4, 7-1 home) will host the Oklahoma City Thunder (11-5, 6-1 away). 2-1 in the In-Season Tournament standings, the Timberwolves will look to move on to the quarterfinals. Out of contention, the Thunder are 1-2 in tournament games.

Statistics courtesy of Props.Cash

If you're betting on the NBA, Anthony Edwards is having a career season, averaging 26.6 points per game, 5.3 assists, and 5.9 rebounds. A very good defensive Minnesota team, Edwards has plenty of athleticism and talent to pass the ball to. Tonight, Edwards gets the Thunder, who have a talented young core. Allowing the 21st most assists per game (26.8), Oklahoma City recently allowed Tobias Harris, DeMar Derozan, and Wiggins all to hit over assists props in the last week.

Over Edwards assist has hit nearly 70 percent this season, including four of the past five matchups against the Knicks, 76ers, Kings, and Grizzlies. A 55 percent rate last season, Edwards has elevated his game in multiple ways, and has a healthy surrounding core of Karl-Anthony Towns, Naz Reid, Rudy Gobert, Mike Conley, Kyle Anderson, and Nickeil Alexander Walker. Although Minnesota will be without defensive specialist Jaden McDaniels, Edwards hasn't had any issue dishing out dimes.

Why I'm confident in this prop tonight

-110 on Fan Duel, No. 5 has dished out over 4.5 assists in three of the last matchups against the Timberwolves. This evening, the Ant Man will get a prime matchup at home, where he averages 5.7 assists at the Target Center. Averaging 4.5 career assists against the Thunder, the forward is coming off 7 assist game against the Memphis Grizzlies. Handing out assists like they're candy, Edwards has 12 assists in the past two games, and is averaging 35.6 minutes, which is a very high volume.

If you're betting on the NBA, it's hard to fade this prop, given how well Edwards has been facilitating. Although point guard Mike Conley has stepped up in terms of distributing the ball, Edwards has over 4.5 assists in 8 of the last 10 games, and I'm not fading a relatively low number that's hit in four straight games. Even though Minnesota doesn't lead the league in assists, they score a good number of points off turnovers (17.4). I'm rolling with the over assists tonight. If this doesn't hit, the Thunder would have to completely shut down Edwards and their passing lanes defensively.

Oklahoma City is coming off a 127-123 loss against the Philadelphia 76ers. Overall, they allowed the 76ers to dish out 30 assists as a time, including 9 from Joel Embiid, and 5 from De'Anthony Melton.

NBA Bet #2: Bogdan Bogdanovic O 2.5 3PTM (-160)

Season Stats PPG: 15.8 | FG: 46.7 % | 3 PT: 39.1 % | FT: 90.5 % | REB: 3 | AST: 2.5 | STL: 1.4 | BLK: 0.4

Tonight, the Atlanta Hawks (8-8, 5-3) will face the Cleveland Cavaliers (9-8, 4-5) on the road tonight. On the brink of tournament elimination (1-2), the Cavaliers are 2-1, just behind the Indiana Pacers.

Statistics courtesy of Props.Cash

If you're betting on the NBA, Bogdan Bogdanovic over 2.5 three pointers made is one of my favorite props of the night. If you watched the Hawks versus. Celtics, Bogdanovic absolutely torched Boston from long range. Mostly playing drop coverage, Boston was unable to step up around the screens to guard Bogdanovic, who finished with 23 points on 70 percent three-point shooting.

The Hawks will face the Cavaliers who are middle of the road in terms of defense. The one part of their defense that lacks? They allow the 25th worst three-point percentage among their opponents (38 percent). A true sniper from downtown, Atlanta has greatly enforced their long-distance shooting under head coach Quinn Snyder. A prop that's hit in three straight games, the guard hit over 2.5 made three pointers close to 70 percent this season. With the increase in threes, the Hawks guard certainly has exceptional playmakers in Trae Young and Dejounte Murray.

Bogdan Bogdanovic has been hot

Along with a three-game streak, Bogdanovic hit over 2.5 made threes in 9 of the last 10 games. Hitting over 50 percent last season, he's been able to snipe from downtown in 11 of the last 15 games. In fact, in his last matchup against Cleveland in mid 2023, he finished with three shots beyond the arc.

Heading into this matchup, Atlanta has the 8th best three-point percentage in the league (37.3) and is top ten in three-point attempts per game (37.5). Second in offense and total points (123.6), the Hawks guard is averaging 26.7 points in the month of November. After attempting 24 shots from deep in the last three matchups, I'm not fading this prop tonight. Although Cleveland's defense can be stifling at times, they haven't allowed a guard to hit over three long distance shots since Nov 15. Even with that, I'm riding the hot hand tonight.

NBA Bet #3: Fred VanVleet O 2.5 3PTM (-175)

Season Stats PPG: 16.6 | FG: 38.6 % | 3 PT: 37.3 % | FT: 89.3 % | REB: 4.6 | AST: 9.4 | STL: 0.7 | BLK: 0.6

The Houston Rockets (8-6, 0-5 away) will matchup against the Dallas Mavericks (10-6, 4-2 home) on the road tonight. With Dallas eliminated from the tournament, Houston still remains alive with a 2-1 group play record.

Statistics courtesy of Props.Cash

If you're betting on the NBA, Fred VanVleet has been cooking with his new team. Averaging over 16 points a game, VanVleet has managed to hit 37 percent of his long-distance shots. Hitting 7 total threes in two games against the Grizzlies and Nuggets, the Houston guard will face a Dallas team that lacks strength defensively. Although they have the star power in Kyrie Irving and Luka Doncic, the Mavericks rank 24th in opponent points per game (118.3) and allow opponents to shoot 36.5 percent from the three. He faces Dallas, who's allowed De'Aaron Fox, Cameron Payne, Dyson Daniels, and Terrance Mann to hit over their props.

Why I like this prop to hit against Dallas

A 71 percent hit rate this season, VanVleet has more than 2.5 three-pointer made in eight of the last ten games, and six of the last seven. Averaging 37.4 minutes with the Rockets, No. 5 has a 71 percent hit rate when he plays at least those exact number of minutes.

Given Houston has young talent with Smith Jr., Sengun, and Green, VanVleet ranks third in scoring behind Green and Segun. Averaging 13 three-point attempts in the last two matchups, he should cook again against the Mavericks. If you're torn on this prop, VanVleet made three long range shots against the Mavericks in late 2022. The guard nearly puts up 8 three pointers a game, which is more than 20 percent of the Rockets shots from deep.

BONUNS NBA Bet #4: Haywood Highsmith O 0.5 3PTM (-210) (Questionable against the Bucks)
