NBA Bet # 1: LaMelo Ball O 33.5 Points and Assists (-110)

Season Stats PPG: 25.9 | FG: 47.6 % | 3 PT: 42.6 % | FT: 87.8 % | REB: 6.2 | AST: 8.9 | STL: 1.5 | BLK: 0.3

Tonight, the Charlotte Hornets (5-9, 2-3 away) will face the Orlando Magic (11-5, 6-2 Home) on the road tonight. Off to a disappointing season, LaMelo Ball has been a consistent force for Charlotte. Averaging over 25.9 points per game, Ball has had to carry the workload due to injuries to Terry Rozier, among other players.

Tonight, Ball gets the Magic, who are a top defensive team, and first in rebounding. Although they don't allow many opponent points and assists, it's hard to fade a player who's been so consistent. If you're betting on the NBA, Ball hit over points and assists in 6 straight games, against the Knicks, Heat, Bucks, Celtics, and Wizards. A prop that's hit well over 50 percent this season, the Charlotte guard hit this prop in 8 of the last 10 games, and over 50 percent last season.

In Feb. 2023, Ball posted up 39 points and assists against the Magic, although they were a different team. Back from injuries, Orlando has the return of Jalen Suggs, and the evolution of several players. Sure, the Magic are proving they belong in the East. However, the surge of Ball cannot go unnoticed, and is averaging 34.8 minutes played per game. In 5 games on the road, Ball is putting up 23.4 points and 8.2 assists per game.

LaMelo Ball has been on a tear

If you're betting on the NBA, LaMelo Ball is a special player who is a crafty ball hander and known for making incredible passes. Able to shoot from everywhere on the court, the Hornets star has the athleticism to drive to the basket. For Ball, he's coming off four 30 plus point games, including 34 points and 13 assists against the Washington Wizards. With Markelle Fultz and Wendell Carter Jr. unavailable for the Magic tonight, perhaps that will make things easier for ball. I will say, he will have a tough matchup with Anthony Black, a rookie who was drafted for his defense.

Charlotte guard Terry Rozier comes back from injury tonight, who hasn't played since Nov. 4. Depending on minutes played, Rozier, who's averaging 22 points per game, could put a dent in Balls production.

In the last ten games, Ball is averaging 30.1 points per game from 42.6 percent from beyond the arc. Since Nov 6, the Magic have allowed guards Spencer Dinwiddie, Cameron Payne, and Trae Young to all hit over points and assists. Although Balls hit rate is 0-5 with Rozier in the lineup this season for this prop, again, it's hard to fade how incredible he's playing as of late.

NBA Bet #2: Jaylen Brown O 0.5 Steals (-215)

Season Stats PPG: 21.4 | FG: 43.9 % | 3 PT: 33.3 % | FT: 71.4 % | REB: 3.7 | AST: 3.9 | STL: 1.1 | BLK: 0.7

Tonight, the Boston Celtics (12-4, 6-0 home) will host the Atlanta Hawks (8-7, 5-2 away) at the TD Garden tonight. Coming off a 113-96 loss against the Orlando Magic, the Celtics will be without defensive specialist Jrue Holiday and Kristaps Porzingis. For the Hawks, they are coming off a 136-108 victory over the Washington Wizards and will be without Jalen Johnson with a wrist injury.

If you're betting on the NBA, Jaylen Brown expressed his desire preseason to become a better defender, and averages 1.1 steals per game. Although the line is slightly higher, Brown hit this prop 73 percent this season, and 4 of the last 8 games. A prop that hit 8 of 10 games, the Celtics guard faces a Hawks team that ranks 25th in total turnovers per game (16.1).

If you aren't sold on this prop, Brown had over 0.5 steals four times last year against Atlanta and is coming off a three-steal game against the Orlando Magic. Emerging as one of the top defensive teams in the league, the Celtics pride themselves on grit and defense.

Why Jaylen Brown could hit this prop

The reason why I love this prop tonight is because of Jaylen Browns recent play, and the amount of turnovers Atlanta creates on a nightly basis. Since Nov. 17, Atlanta has allowed 10 straight player prop steals, including Nic Claxton, Bruce Brown, Tyrese Haliburton, and Tobias Harris. More importantly, the Hawks have allowed 7 straight shooting guards to hit over steals, including Quentin Grimes, Ausar Thompson, Duncan Robinson, and Jalen Suggs. Without Holiday in the lineup, Brown hit this prop 100 percent. With four steals in two games, Brown will have to take on guarding several players tonight with Porzingis and Holiday out. Averaging 34.3 minutes in the month of November, Brown is coming off a 39-minute game, and I expect him to have hefty playing time tonight against the eastern rival Hawks.

DeMar DeRozan O 0.5 3PTM (-150)

Season Stats PPG: 21.1 | FG: 44.7 % | 3 PT: 39.1% | FT: 80.3 % | REB: 3.2 | AST: 4.6 | STL: 1.1 | BLK: 1.1

The Chicago Bulls (5-12, 1-6 away) will matchup against the Brooklyn Nets (7-8, 4-4 home) on the road tonight. Though Chicago has been quite the disappointment through 17 games, DeMar DeRozan still remains a main core of this team, along with Zach LaVine. A career 29.1 percent three-point shooter, DeRozan is hitting over 35 percent of his shots from downtown this season.

Listed at -145 odds, DeRozan hit at least one made three pointer in 3 of the last 5 games, against the Heat, and Magic. Tonight, he faces a Brooklyn team that has been riddled with injuries to Ben Simmons and Cam Thomas. With Alex Caruso and Zach LaVine listed as questionable, DeRozan hit this prop over 55 percent this season. Not the best defensive unit, Brooklyn allows the 20th most points per game (114.9) and allows opponents to attempt nearly 14 three pointers per game.

Why I'm confident in this prop

In one matchup against Brooklyn this year, the Bulls guard is shooting 50 percent from downtown, and putting up 24 points per game. It's important to note, he hasn't made a three-pointer in all seven games on the road. I truly believe he's due tonight, especially if Caruso and LaVine are unable to suit up.

Averaging 35.8 minutes in the month of November, DeRozan certainly has the shot volume and minutes to stay confident in this prop. Over the month of November, Brooklyn has allowed at least one three-pointer made by Haywood Highsmith, Jaime Jaquez Jr., De'Andre Hunter, Jimmy Butler, and Franz Wagner. According to Props. Cash, DeRozan has a probability of hitting this prop 56 % percent if he plays at least 35.6 minutes per game.

If you're betting on the NBA, I am confident in this prop, against a banged-up Brooklyn team.

Bonus: Minnesota Timberwolves -6 (-115)
