We’re seeing absurd scoring numbers this season, both from stars established and budding. This season has also provided parity that’s been elusive over the past decade or so, leading to fierce competition consistently.
If you’re looking for the best NBA player props for tonight, here are three guys that have been lighting up the scoreboard and driving in daggers this season.
NBA Player Prop #1: De’Aaron Fox Over 26.5 Points (-130)
The odds for this prop have already fallen for the presumptive favorite for the inaugural Clutch Player of the Year award. That’s for a good reason too, as Fox is putting up 30.3 points per game since February 1, including 11 games with at least 31 points. That’s 11 times out of 15 chances.
If you’re concerned about fatigue since this is the second half of a back-to-back, don’t be. Fox has finished with at least 31 points in four of the last six games he’s played with no days of rest in between them. He’s coming off a 32-point night with a game-winner, and I expect him to carry that momentum into Brooklyn tonight.
NBA Player Prop #2: Shai Gilgeous-Alexander Over 30.5 Points (-120)
Another young guard with a bright future, the Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (SGA) has been terrorizing defenses all season. Starring for the Oklahoma City Thunder, SGA is putting up 31.3 points per game on 62.5% true shooting this season. Over his last five games played, he’s averaging 36.0 points a night, with his worst night being a 33-point outing.
His scoring numbers on the road are identical to those at home this season, so that shouldn’t be an issue. SGA is also from Toronto, so he may have extra motivation to put on a show tonight. The Raptors are notorious for pulling out all the stops to prevent stars from scoring, but SGA is so crafty and adept at getting to the free-throw line that it won’t matter.
NBA Player Prop #3: Devin Booker Over 30.5 Points (-105)
Devin Booker saw an immediate scoring surge when Kevin Durant suited up in Phoenix for the first time, and while Durant is currently sidelined again, Booker hasn’t stopped scoring. This month, Booker is averaging 34.6 points per game, and his worst night saw him drop 28.
He simply can’t miss right now, as he’s been wildly efficient despite his highest shooting volume of any month this season. On 23.4 attempts per game in March, Booker is hitting 57.9% of his shots. From beyond the arc, Devin Booker is shooting 46.3%, including a pair of 6/10 games from deep. He’s been a tremendous scorer since he entered the league, and he’s amid one of his best scoring stretches yet.
