The 2022-23 NBA season continues on Friday, March 3rd, with 20 teams in action.
Take a look at three strong player props for tonight’s action, featuring Kevin Durant, Anthony Davis, and Chris Paul.
NBA Player Prop #1: Kevin Durant Over 22.5 Points (-108)
Kevin Durant is currently seventh in the league in scoring, as he is averaging 29.5 points per game while shooting 56.1% from the field, 37.8% from three-point range and 93.4% from the free-throw line. Durant has scored at least 23 points in 36 of his 40 games played, including his Phoenix Suns debut. Despite being on a minutes restriction, Durant finished with 23 points while shooting 10-15 from the field, 2-4 from three-point range and 1-1 from the free-throw line. Furthermore, in two meetings with the Chicago Bulls this season, Durant has averaged 38.0 points per game while shooting 63.2% from the field, 50.0% from three-point range and 100.0% from the free-throw line. Look for the 13-time All-Star to have another strong night as he finishes with at least 23 points.
NBA Player Prop #2: Anthony Davis Over 26.5 Points (-108)
Anthony Davis is currently ranked 13th in the league in scoring, averaging 25.8 points per game while shooting 56.1% from the field. The eight-time All-Star star has scored at least 27 points in 18 of his 38 games played this season, including six of his ten games played without co-star LeBron James this season. The Los Angeles Lakers star has averaged 27.8 points per game without James this season, while shooting 51.6% from the field. While Davis did not suit up in the Lakers only matchup with the Minnesota Timberwolves this season, he should be able to have a strong night with his co-star out. Expect Davis to finish with at least 27 points.
NBA Player Prop #3: Chris Paul Over 8.5 Assists (-102)
Chris Paul is currently fifth in the league in assists, averaging 9.0 assists per game. The Phoenix Suns star has finished with at least nine assists in 24 of his 42 games played this season, including Kevin Durant’s debut in which he finished with 11 assists. With two players who average more than 25.0 points per game to feed the ball, Paul should have another strong night setting his teammates up. Look for the 12-time All-Star to finish with at least nine assists.
